I know this won't go in today's video but....

I have just bought an 05 Nissan Altima 2.5s for $2k USD w/ 156k mi

The seller told me it had been sitting for about 6-8 months but he had been starting and running it 1 or 2 times a week. I test drove it and it was pretty good. I bought it knowing it had a bad catalytic but that was it as far as I knew.

At that moment.

The same day, I took it to the car wash, wiper linkage popped off.

Eight hours later, the alternator caught on fire (alittle).

2 days later, the master and slave cylinder for the clutch need to be replaced. (That's done now)

I haven't even fixed the cat yet. (The part just arrived)

those are junker cars, period. At least you didn't pay much. If you are smart , sell it on
