- Take notes of electrical issues such as a horn that doesn’t work, lights that won’t turn on, gauges that don’t work windshield wipers that don’t work.
- Check the bodywork with a magnet if the magnet won’t stick to the car there is Bondo in the car, look for issues with the paint such as cracking, checking, peeling, orange peel or pry spray or overspray on glass or chrome.
- Look for misaligned doors, bumpers, fenders, the hood, the trunk lid, this is every case means an accident has happened.

The key thing to remember is that if you find any of these things it will provide a good bargaining chip for you to get a better price on the car. As I always say in general there is no $2,500 dollar car to buy any more unless you get lucky. You should plan to spend no less the $10,000 if you want a good car to start with.
