downs of this first options can be great

Auto Auction Warning Tips/Advice Before You Buy
it and put your daughter or your family
member in something that you’re just
taking a chance on just because it’s at
an auction some of the things to look
out for it in auction if you’re just
I’m gonna go do it oh if make sure the
hoods open at least verify there’s
cooling in it you know what I mean try
to because if it has a blown head gasket
at auction all they got to do is let the
coolant out and let it ride through you
won’t know they can also bring the spark
plugs up so they barn a little hotter to
disguise it they can pull the battery
plug reset the computer so the check
engine lights and the the other stuff
doesn’t reappear for the second
revolution for the car to go out on its
on a ride and what else can happen at an
option well a couple of the cars that we
thought we were looking at from private
owners so to speak yeah remember you we
pulled up to the one and they had um you
could see the auction yeah it’s a bad
freeze plug now guys I’m gonna kill you
man I’ve worked a Desa options Manheim
auctions I’ve been on the from the
Orlando Circuit all the way up to
Mannheim Pennsylvania worked Atlanta I
bought and sold cars and ship them all
over the US I’ve done the whole sale
thing from dealer to auction from
auction back to dealer bottom from
private individuals resold back to
dealers retail to the public I’m a car
guy and I’m telling you I don’t have
enough experience to go to an auction
and buy a car as soon as it pulls up and
I’m a smart guy like when I hear a car I
can probably tell you more about it than
you can after driving it for five years
but I don’t feel comfortable with it and
there’s so many there’s so many
drawbacks to buy them one out of a
public auction that you really don’t
know the seller on it’s just too risky
now if you were gonna try to buy one
from a let’s say like a county auction
where you know they’re coming out of a
fleet I would say that’s a little safer
bet but how would you suggest I’m just
going to a blind auction public
sixteen-year-old daughter no definitely
not if you’re you’re gonna put your kid
in a car you’re gonna want to know and
have some security that it’s been taken
care of it’s been maintained you know
where it came from you know what it’s
been through it that’s exactly right and
see when I when I first are in the car
business in 1989 the first thing I was
tall was all buyers are liars well you
know what turns out they had it
backwards all car sellers like 999 out
of a thousand are lying and they have no
problem lying to your face whether it’s
the halt where there’s the car dealer
sitting behind the desk whether it’s the
not all of them there’s some very
reputable car dealers aren’t they there
definitely are I’m just saying that the
auction the little car flipper guy he
might be like they just want to move
they just want to write and there are no
warranties they will not take it back
right so they’ve had days to prepare to
how to snuff you out of ten minutes of
your life you go to give them 1,500 to
grab whatever you’re going to waste your
money on and and then you got there I
mean there’s rust issues like on the
brake lines what’s the condition of the
braking system what’s the condition of
the ABS module what’s the condition of
the analog brakes as far as do they
actually still work airbag systems all
these sub modules are just so important
and I give you an example
we’ve bought cars now this is me now
I’ve bought cars without going through
my complete checklist that I created yes
he of a shortcut yes he has what to push
the horn and realize that they had just
glued the airbag back on that was not
that long ago yeah that was not that
long ago guys and I promise you I’ll buy
more cars and you’ll ever do in your
life in probably 30 days and it happens
it happens what’s some of the other
stuff we’ve found you have to watch the
titles really closely I mean though they
might slide a little announcement in
that it’s a it’s clean title it might
say former or Salvage
you’d be like oh what’s that mean it
gets kind of goes by you’re like we
built rebuild former Salvage flood zone
flood area there’s a lot of way of them
trying to tell you hey this is a piece
of crap but we really want you to spend
your money we’re gonna word it so it
sounds a little better also an auction
you got to watch the auctioneers there
are a lot of them or just pull the crap
– they’ll try to bid you up even though
there’s no one else bidding people will
try to say that you’ve been told
something you didn’t the options a scary
place and not to mention after all of
this whatever you’re paying you’re gonna
pay an additional fee on top up for the
auction the sellers gotta pay a fee so
that same car you could knock on
somebody’s door when seen took someone
that’s got a little bit of brains about
them and knows how to look at a car to
make you get a little bit comfortable
did a good test-drive check the engine
temperature make sure the car should
well people lie about a transmission Jim
oh my gosh yes yes how many times you
wouldn’t believe how many times we’ve
heard oh it just needs a battery and so
you can’t drive it because it doesn’t
have a battery in it well no really
that’s just a farce and you can’t drive
it because the transmission doesn’t
shift yeah you wouldn’t believe that one
not too long I’d hate to be running
rabbit trails but we had one not too
long ago the guys like yeah it was
overheating a little bit okay when the
story got done this thing had a blown
head gasket
he had a mil coat on the transmission it
was stuck in limp mode it had a wheel
bearing out that’s another thing you
won’t be able to tell at an auction and
you just never know you just don’t know
you don’t know what the condition of
please unless you are a professional car
buyer and even then if you’re a
professional car buyer
take my advice I know you little boys
got your egos and this is what you got
bead but if you want to make money in
this game you better do your homework
you need to take somebody who knows cars
and/or become an expert you can watch my
I’m getting ready to release a whole
series on how to do an evaluation on a
vehicle if you followed me to the tee I
will keep you from ever losing at any on
a car I can keep myself from it but my
veto makes me lose money because you
know of course I’ve got her over here
going yes yes and how many times have I
been right
she’s right every time I hate to admit
it this is on video with it it is on
video so I’ve got you now anyway as far
as Kermit which is a funny name to use
Kermit please take my advice do not go
to a public sale to buy yourself a car
buy yourself a car but don’t go buy it
for your daughter and expect her to be
safe there’s a 50/50 chance you might
get lucky actually I think it’s less
than 50/50 don’t you I would definitely
say so you probably got less than a 20
or 30% chance of actually coming out
exactly how the car is represented and
that’s just and they know what that car
is worth when it rolls their uses you’re
not really getting a deal anyway because
you might think that you bought it for
five hundred dollars less but hell
they’re hiding a thousand dollars with a
crap on it so go somewhere look at
Craigslist look at cars calm look at
eBay where all these people are held
responsible for what they’ve got you can
have time to make a decision that’s my
personal it’s graduation time for your
little girl and obviously graduation or
junior I don’t know 16 years old I guess
almost graduate sometimes anyway her
first car bus our heart just I’m telling
you bro don’t make the mistake and we
you know you also hear a lot of our
viewers have have chimed in and said
that you know they wanted a decent car
for their child for a graduation gift or
birthday gift or whatever but they don’t
want to spend a ton of money on it so
they they think that they have to go
somewhere like an auction to get
something that they believe is going to
be dependable
only to get burner is it’s whoever does
the homework gets a good deal it’s all
there is to it and if they have
questions they can always jam it and you
know that if you watching this video
you’re part of my car man’s family you
got me on call so you could just be like
hey dude does this hit you right you
know and I’ll tell you like I can tell
you the value of any car manufactured or
sold in the u.s. you can call me right
now and I’ll bet you $1,000 I’ll put you
on the money what did it bring an option
what it’ll bring retail what an
insurance company will pay you I can
tell you whatever you want to want so if
we want to have a conversation about
cars I’m your guy absolutely and I can
definitely say hey man it sounds like
you’re paying a little much you may be
to try to get a little cheaper or
whatever but I don’t wanna get all up in
your business but I’m just giving you a
word to the wise because that’s what we
do here try to save you guys money keep
