Someone near Detroit MI to look at a car, need help check engine
Ok, i'm looking at buying a salvaged car that was a trade in.
I live over 5 hours away, it's in detroit and i'm in southern ohio.
I sent a downpayment for them to hold the car for me.
But when i called him to confirm i had sent the downpayment he told me it had a check engine light on, i was wondering if a fellow subaru'r that was close could check it out.
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll get ya the info so you can check it for me if someone would.
The deal with the car is i'm getting it for under 2 grand, it is a 1997 outback sport, with 96k miles on the clock.
it's a 5 speed and honestly it's hard to tell a whole lot from the pix and i when i told him i sent him the $100 money order to hold the car for me then i told me it had a check engine light on.
kinda freaked me out becuase it had to make the trip home.
i can see the car has some paint chipping off the front bumper and i just noticed it looks the the scoop is black for some reason.
he told me it had a tiny bit of rust on the front driverside fender and rear but other than a loud exhuast the car seems to drive well.
but now he's saying it's got a check engine light on.
so i'm either looking for advice or someone to go down for me and check out the car that knows their stuff.
would mean a lot to me and could keep me out of a potentially expensive and frustrating situation.
what's everyone think?
can someone out there help?
