Hello fellow bloobies in this today I will be showing you how to buy a good used car under 5000 without getting scammed. So the website of choice in this video is OfferUp and the reason is I have now bought two cars from offerup that are fully functional and the way you want to do this is you should go to offerup then click cars and trucks after which specify the year that you want and now the important part the mileage , the mileage should not be above 150000 note, this does not necessarily mean that a car with more than a 150000 miles is bad but it does mean it can be. That all depends on just how much it is maintained there is a video on the matter in this blob. Anyways once you are on OfferUp click on the suspected sellers page and see if he listed the same item in different states/counties that would be a good indicator that it is a scam because they are trying to get as much people as possible then you look at there rating and after which you look for the verified for payments icon on OfferUp. After which you take the car to a mechanic or you drive to a mechanic and have them check it out some quick checks you can do for your self though is things like check for cold AC, check for radio, check that the car does not make noises and drive at least 6 miles without incident while listening for noise. Check that the breaks do not make noise and that it works well check that the gear shift is working by changing it a couple.
