We paid $3,400 including the tax. Yes, it was a private person. He is an automotive technician, said he had done all the work himself and everything was in good shape. He said he had undercoated it every year but there is a hole in the floor and my mechanic said it had never been undercoated. He also said he had put a new transmission in it but there is coolant in the transmission fluid so there is a leak someplace. The ball joints are gone, the brakes need work and when I called him to tell him the stuff that was wrong with it, he said he had no idea that all this stuff was wrong and he was not trying to rip me off.
