It is true they have more then their shear of electrical problems most involve the automatic climate control and the air ride system, the drive train is pretty reliable, and they have a fantastic ride if the the air ride is working properly. the interior is great probably one of the best in there class, but the electrical problems are a big concern on a car that is almost 10 years old.but if the price is right and the overall condition is good i would conceder purching the car, but you need to remember i am a mechanic.

Hello, i just had a few questions about a 1991 Acura Legend. i'm looking at possibly buying one tomorrow. i went to take a look at it today, and in the add it said that it needed a new heater core, and a new fan control module. so i looked up pricing and everything for those and found it to be no big deal, i could easily replace those on my own. now when i looked at the car earlier today, it wouldn't start. the lady selling the car said the battery was brand new and that she had no idea why it w

I'm looking at buying a 1996 Audi A4 with 122,500 miles. The owner revealed it has a small oil leak, but has not had to add any oil. My mechanic is going to look the vehicle over for me.

Headlight replacement. My exsisting headlight has a major crack and there is glass floating around in there. Headlamps only last for a few days. I was told by my mechanic to buy a used Headlight and replace it myself. Since then, I've had about four people look at this darn thing. No one can figure out how to get the exsisting light off. The screws look pretty nasty too - seized and damaged. It looks like the grill may also have to come off to access some of the assembly (a major project for us

I have never owned an Audi and am looking to buy this pre-owned model with 145k on the clock. People have warned me that a) the brand always has small 'niggly' problems that ultimately cost exhorbitant amounts of money to repair. b)all parts are hugely expensive to replace (and ref a) and c) whilst it is recommended NOT to use your regular mechanic the 'specialist' repairers charge through the roof (as well as mark up +++ the already expensive parts) so not sure if this is a wise buy... however

Sputtering I am looking to buy a 1996 astro LT,first i looked all over it and then took it for a test drive and it rode nice and smooth but when i took a right hand turn it started to sputter and when I got on top of a slight upgrade it ran fine. The owner said it was the three o2 sensors that needs to be replaced in order to stop this please help before i waste money on this van.
The O2 sensors can be pretty expensive, and it's his guess that those will fix it. It's not common for all 3 to need replacing at one time. I'd pass on this vehicle and find another. ... 1996 Chevrolet Astro

Thule box I am thinking about buying RX-330. I have one concern: I need to have a long Thule box on the rack, and it looks like RX-330 roof is pretty short. It looks like either the rear door spoiler will be pushing against the back end of the box, or the box will be hanging above the windshield, or both. Do you have experience with this? Please share.

I am thinking of buying a preowned 2008 or a new 2009 mini cooper or cooper s. Still undecided. automatic but have seen many forums about problems with mini transmissions /power steering etc and am concerned that this may not be a good idea. Most forums are based on having a manual transmission. I have never had a car that has had problems and have loved the looks of the mini for 2 years but don't want to buy a money pit either. Do I have reason to be concerned?
You take a risk with buying any pre owned car. make sure that it has a full service history from the dealership only!! this should mean that it has been serviced properly. \015\012\015\012hope this helps. ... Mini Cooper
I am looking to buy a 1994 Toyota land cruiser. IT looks like there is a small oil leaks and a transmission fluid leak. The oil leak could be either an oil pan leak, rear seal, or valve covers. The transmission appeared to be coming from the rear of the transmission by the output shaft seal. What should it cost me to fix these leaks?
Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy. ... Toyota Land Cruiser
