Hello Scotty, Can you please give your opinion on honda 1.5 turbo engines being used in Civic line up including civic Si? Do you think these engines are reliable as I read about oil dilution issues in Honda crv engines? If not, what is good alternative option? Thank you
TLDR: Loaded 2016 highlander (30k miles) with report of frame damage but none found on inspection or 1k cheaper brand new korean crossover with better warranty?
Scotty (and anyone else reading), I am unsure about my next car purchase. I plan on driving my next vehicle till the wheels fall off. I can get a brand new 2018 santa fe or sorento for pretty cheap (6-7K off MSRP) and be out the door under 25K or I can get a loaded 2016 highlander with 30k miles for 26K out the door. Typically the highlanders have an asking price close to 30K before fees, so 33K out the door. Normally this is a no brainer, however, the highlander has structural damage reported at auction. The seller is very honest and said he an inspection done and doesn't see any evidence of actual frame damage. Assuming I get a PPI and have it looked at and he is telling the truth, should I go with the highlander, or should I go with the new korean car with the great warranty, or option C, wait it out for a highlander with do damage. Thanks for your time.
Have you worked on a 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid? I have one that the dealer claims has a bad CVVT. They want $2000. Can you make a video on changing the CVVT parts.
Looking at buying a 96 Camry 4cyl. with 104k miles on it. Car looks rather clean. Guy wants 3k but I am looking to offer 2300, any thoughts?
I have a 2004 Daihatsu Legacy. I don't really know much about cars, so I want to know if you have any feedback regarding Daihatsu cars and what I need to look out for with these cars.
