            They tried to get me today lmao, 180 then they tried to seem genuine and give me 40off. Still 140 every month for that lmao 2k a year for a 5 year plan. That. Means 10k goes to them and that’s only 3 grand less than what I need to pay for my car, what a joke actually make it affordable if you ever want to make business. SCAMMMS. DONT AGREE NO MATTER HOW GOOD THEY MAKE IT

                                  I tested a salvage 2000 Toyota Sienna with 48K miles. It was formerly a corporate lease vehicle. Paid $75 for a Toyota shop to look it over and they said it was in fantastic shape. 225K miles later and it’s still going strong

                                      Scotty you didn’t check for a blown head gasket. Water and Oil mixing together. And check for unusual smoke coming out the tailpipe

                                                Hello sir, your content is really helpfull.
                                                I am planning to buy 2011-12 honda city AT with 67k Kms on odo and I want to install cng in it.
                                                My running is 30-35k Kms per year and I want to use it for 1 lac Kms.
                                                Is it advisable to go with this idea in terms of reliability and maintenance ?
                                                I am college student and want a reliable, comfortable, automatic and easy-on-pocket car which I can use for next 3 years in Delhi.
                                                Please reply, thanks.
