Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
If you are purchasing a vehicle from an ad, and calling and setting a time to see it, I use a 5/30 rule. Call and tell the person you'll be there in 30 min., but get there in less than 5. If there is something he doesn't want you to see, like having to ad coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, etc. He'll already be out there doing it. Same for jump starting to hide a bad battery, or an engine that rattles cold. Or airing up tires, or a whole list of things. Get there early and see if he's working on something. This could save many headaches down the road.
