    Thanks for your advice Chris. I went for my first ever used car inspection today. I used your checklist and the car seemed up to par. I don't know a lot about cars, and it gave me a lot of pointers for what to look for, especially when it came to questioning the owner.
    Your test drive advice was especially useful. I only discovered a fault due to your advice to do an emergency brake. I got up to 40 on a clear highway, told him what i was going to do, and went ahead. ABS light lit up and the car skidded round so we turned 90 degrees to the left. I've never been in a skid before, so I was surprised at how calm I remained. The smell of rubber filled the car for the next few minutes.

    I like the car, but it raised a serious issue on which I can haggle down the price w.r.t repair costs (those brakes will need some work!!), and I wouldn't have thought to test an emergency stop without your advice, so thank you!!!

    I had a 03 S Type V8 one of the best cars I have had. Got rid of it for a 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged V8 Portfolio Edition.
    Absolutely the worst car I've ever owned. I'll never own another Jaguar anything! I've spent thousands of dollars for repairs on the car. Has less than 84k miles the S Type had 157k and never a problem.

    I lowered the price of my piece of shit Honda just because he was willing to pay for cash at the spot. I wanted more but the car had several problems. I'm happy, I hope he's too. It was a good car

    In my country, even USD 2K will only get you a shitty '85 Corolla while that Jag will sell for about USD 8K minimum

    I watched this today, right before going to look at a used car. I saw the little white puffs of smoke you mentioned and politely said no thank you. Dodged a bullet with your help. Thank you so much, ChrisFix. You are doing so many great videos and helping people all the time. KUTGW. A loyal fan!

    Wow thank you so much for this video I knew nothing about buying a used car until I watch this. So people will try to sell a used car that needs work for a higher amount. So they can put payment on another car. And cash right on the spot. I know that is also very helpful. I will have a mechanic help me purchase my next car. because I want to have it fixed up.
