    So...
    The two Sentras today.

    One mysteriously was missing the roof console and had some other miscalanious issues, and the other mysteriously had a salvage title that the dealer 'diddn't know about'.

    What is the problem? Why is every car a POS. Why is every person dishonest?!

    SERIOUSLY WTH.

    yes.

    These were two that i spent extensive time on the phone with the dealers about too. Then after my grandad drives to one, and I'm about to drive to another, we get these amazing stories (he drove to one already, i was going to go to the other and called to let them know then all of a sudden i was told about the rebuilt).

    Honesty is hard to find these days, and people can take photos in angles that hide an item's flaws. (or missing parts)

    You'll find a car from someone who's honest soon enough. :)

    IT seriously has been like 2 months, and i have looked at like 15 cars now. All had something majorly wrong with them.
    I am right now extremely pissed, angry and discouraged. And snow is right around the corner, and i don't feel like biking in the snow.
    And on top of that, i lost $500 from an idiot too! I had to pay a deposit and the car did not check out (some really weird drivetrain noise [my grandad {who used to be a dealer} looked at that one]) and he won't give it back and ebay/paypal won't do anything either.

    That's why I would be wary of buying a car off of eBay, even though people in my own family have had success, it just seems too risky.

    I was lucky enough to find a decent car my 3rd time looking in the paper, but I'm not particularly picky about whether it was "cool" or not. (my car definetly isn't cool lol) :p

    I'd try the paper if you haven't already. Many people overlook it with craigslist these days.:)

    Bro i live in Florida why don't you come here and by a car?

    Salt free, and there are still quite a bit of cheap cars here. Fly to over here check them out and whatever you like buy it and drive it back to your state. I recently drove my M35 from Toronto to Orlando and i had a BLAST! Trust me you will enjoy it.
