Here’s How Stupid People Buy Cars

Here’s How Stupid People Buy Cars


rev up your engines you can buy a cars out of vending
machines on the street now in London England company called Auto Trader now
has cars sitting inside these glass containers locked in that you can buy
with your phone you can get an app put it in and you can buy the car right on
the spot a car seller that’s already agreed what price they want to go it’s
just like all the other guys that car max you can’t haggle the price and if
you see that car and you want to buy it you can use your phone if you have the
money and the app on your phone buy the car right there on the street London and
then just drive it out I mean come on now everybody knows that you buy coffee
from a vending machine it tastes like crap well I’d be kind of leery about
buying a car out of a vending machine right kind of morning
taking a chance without even road-test the link you can now buy a car in London
out of a vending machine rock pile or antarsya Scotty
loved the show got a 93 Nissan Pathfinder six-cylinder 190,000 miles
runs good is it worth your snoring thanks if you like the vehicle yes
that’s a 93 Nissan Pathfinder they were strong built vehicles that was
long before Renault took over and it can last a really long time a parts are
available if you like that truck glad we start I think customers that those
things get over 300,000 miles on them with the original engines and trannies
and they’re still running okay that those were well made you can still get
parts one there’s nothing wrong with a 93 Pathfinder you could probably drive
that thing forever if you restored it and took care of it because the Nissan
really knew how to make standard transmissions the Datsun being
originally they made some of the best low race cars out there with standard
transmissions I would definitely keep it with the standard transmission and
restored Santos chicas would you recommend a Honda Odyssey or Theriot to
Sienna for family van Toyota Sienna by far now when it first came out kinda
honesty’s you’re pretty good vans but doesn’t had automatic transmission
problems cam problems is the engines they just
slaughter with problems why buy something that has problems when you get
Toyota Sienna they’re pretty bulletproof and it doesn’t really matter what year
if you can find one with low enough mileage that you want to buy at a good
enough price go ahead and buy it or and if you don’t care buy brand-new
driver for 20-30 years like my son’s doing Davis says I have a saturn ion
the car fan just stays on very commonly on those that is a bad fan
temperature sensor it’s just a little sensor fine where that does go like
autozone they can show you where it is on picture even print you out a picture
saw you want to put it because if that’s bad it’ll do exactly pray it’s that cuz
if it’s not then either the wirings gone bad or the computers gone bad often on
those I see the computers go bad and I mean if it runs okay otherwise and when
you shut the car off the fan goes off I’d live with it on that cuz the car’s
not worth that much money the computer cost a fortune and if it runs too much
who cares so if the fan burns out easy you can get an aftermarket fan for many
discount an auto parts store for a less than 100 bucks and just replace it and
not even worry about if it works okay otherwise there are G reviews how much
does it cost replace the radiator I minivan dealer wants over $1,000 to do
the job we’ll never go to the dealer they always charge too much anyways it
depends on the vignette I’ve had Toyota minivans I could change the radiator of
45 minutes was a no big deal I can get aftermarket ones that work fine less
than 120 dollars sometimes so you always have to decide where you gonna buy the
parts see where they’re coming from and the aftermarket radiators are perfectly
fine I’ve been using them for decades and they still work fine how hard of a
job it is to do your particular minivan cuz some of the ones like some of the
Fords you got to drop the whole front of a vehicle off and drop it down get that
up high in the air cuz the radiator drops down and stood up it can be a real
pain in the butt but research yours how long it takes cuz like I say some of
them like Toyota’s I can change them out in 45 minutes it’s no big deal
stops I said any idea it’s not a road you see in the wiring yeah you know the
weird thing is rodents eat wiring and cars because it gives them a thrill I
guess it’s like I’m smoking a joint the little bit of electricity going through
doesn’t hurt them but it kind of gives them a thrill from what scientists have
told me you can do like I’ve got that video you can buy those rodent
ultrasonic devices you got to get the ones that are two-toned cuz they get
used to but they don’t get used to me we wait and people sell them you can get 12
volt versions hook them up they actually do work I have them actually in the
walls in my house an old house the rats getting in there making noise so I
drilled holes stuck the things and then plugged him into the walls they make
under 20 volt versions and they went away and they didn’t come back the stuff
actually does work but you gotta get the one that’s two tone used to one tone but
the other tone and the isolation drives them nuts John says should I
get an engine guard or differential guard when buying a car do they do any
good if they’re low yes they do work you get
solid steel ones that either well they’re bolt on and they’re garden stuff
now some vehicles you don’t need them like you take a classic older Toyota
Camry the frame of the vehicle was actually well below the engine so you’re
gonna hit the frame before he hit the engine which is good thing because I got
my saw a 93 Camry for his first car yeah he scraped all on the bottom there
driving like a lunatic over bumps and stuff but it never heard the engine cuz
all the sub frame there just got a bunch of scratches on it but it was solid
metal never did any damage now if you look at your car and you see the
differential and the engine oil pan is lower than the frame of the car
definitely put a guard on it it’s a worthwhile thing to do if it’s designed
that way so if you never want to miss another one

  2. Scotty I've got a 1995 Ford F-150 with a 4.9L I6 motor. The truck will start but when it idles it does so very unevenly and weakly. If you try to drive it you can go only a very short distance before it dies again. What do you think?

  3. If you pay CASH, more than likely you can always lower the price, they know there is competition 👌 I got my 1st car from carmax for an awesome price and lasted me well past my high school years😌

  4. Hey Scotty, I have a 2003 Toyata Corolla that has an AC who's fans work but doesn't push cold air, not sure what to do.

  5. Hey Scotty my girlfriend has a 2001 dodge truck with 90 000 miles that is completely falling apart with rust in the frame, no ac, and extensive bodywork rust and she needs a better car for 5000 dollars. What do you think is the best option for her ? I’ve tried recommending Toyota’s and Honda’s but they’re too expensive over where we are.

  6. Yeah, I've heard about those car vending machines…how do they work, anyway? You just put a $25,000.00 coin in the slot, press the button, and the car rolls out?🤣🤣🤣

  7. I had a '92 Pathfinder and to this day I think it's the best car I ever owned. I towed a waterski boat with it, no problem. Put in oil and gas, new tires when it needed, and nothing else. It just ran and ran and ran. Then one day I got MONUMENTALLY STOOPID after ending up suddenly single and traded it in for a BMW 525i. I had never spent so much money on maintaining a car in my life. Now I drive an '07 Armada, and it's just the like the Pathfinder… feed it gas, sometimes oil and tires, and it just runs and runs and runs. Maybe I'm just lucky with the post-Fiat Armada, but I'll never forget that Pathfinder. My first truly good car, that taught me what it's like to own a good car.

  8. That's actually really funny… Just a random car sitting in a big showy glass case going "look at me, buy me now. No, you can't enter my safety cell. Personal space guys".

  9. What if the car gets stuck while being pushed out by the vending machine?? Like most jumbo honeybuns do!! 😠😠😠

  10. Thanks Scotty for liking the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder a lot. I've got a 1991 Pathfinder 4×4 with a 5 speed manual transmission. 123K miles. It's running and shifting great. I should change the transmission, differential and transfer case fluid. Any advice on that?

  11. Ah yes, the new car vending machine scam. Put in your payment and select Mazda Miata. Out rolls a Jeep Renegade instead. "No haggling and no refunds!!"

  12. Had to replace an entire main wiring harness on a Kia Stinger 3.3 twin turbo because pack rats chewed it all up. You have to remove the engine and transmission to replace it. The whole process involves lifting the car off its subframe with the engine and transmission on it. If you get a Kia Stinger, buy anti-rodent devices that flash lights and make all kinds of frequencies to keep them out! The owner had to get his car insurance involved since warranty doesn't cover pack rat damage.

  13. Mr Scotty hello I'm the same person who wanted to purchase the 2007 Honda Civic the same one you did on the previous video about the 2008 Civic but where I'm from they have the IXL model is that one good for automatic transmission or manual?

  14. Scotty how stupid people buy cars, next video in my YouTube account mrbeast selling every car for free, 😭😭😭

  15. This was a good video today. The person needing a radiator on the min van needs to call around and get estimates. I know the Chrysler vans are a pain to do

  16. Never heard of carvana? They have vending machines and they deliver it to you. Not that I would do it but the cars are guaranteed and are returnable for 7 days if you don’t like it. I can’t go to my local used car lot and easily return the car if I don’t like it or if I find a problem with it.

  17. Those are here in the US. There is a tower vending machine here in Phoenix I’m pretty sure it’s the same company you mentioned. Edit: it’s called carvana.

  18. i wonder if hackers could unlock those cars lol. selling in a glass 😛 . just take a rock and hot wire it. prob has a dozen cameras on it

  19. stop bidding at auctions before it even starts you idiots !!! all you do is jack up price and you most likely will not win anyways, because pros always come out of the shade at last minute of betting or seconds.

  20. Millenial and gen Y are phucking dumb. I thank my common sense I never had kids cause this country is doomed

  21. There's one of these ridiculous Car Vending Machine things right on I10 in Houston…just West of the Beltway 8 – Carvana

  22. I want to restore a 93 Pathfinder
    Scotty: Sure, they can last 300kmi

    I want to restore a 93 BMW 5 series
    Scotty: Why??? Those things are absolute money pits! Find a nice Celica instead!

  23. I bought a Toyota Rav4 on Carvana and had it checked out. It was less than 19 thousand miles and they gave more than 2 thousand than the dealers on trade in. The car runs great and love it.

  24. I'll watch this later, but I already know how stupid people buy cars. I've bought about half a dozen cars so far.

  25. Never buy things from a vending machine. They are endless money pits to fix and they sometimes take your money. Buy a Toyota.

  26. The reason rodents eat new car wiring is because the insulation is soy based instead of petroleum based to make them biodegradable.

  27. You can buy a car out of a vending machine in California now, and probably other parts of the US. The company is called Carvana and you can buy it online or at one of their sites where the cars are in a tower like a vending machine. Go figure.

  28. Toyota vans are not bullet proof when i went 2 mexico i saw 1 that blew up cuz it was sprayed with bullets😂😂😂

  29. If Dumb people buy cars out of a vending machine, Scotty thinks Smart people stalk the terminally ill who happen to own Toyotas.
    face it thats the only way you get a deal on a Toyota.

  30. Lots of criticism now but in 30-40 years from you all gonna be buying cars from vending machines from some robot companies mark my words

  31. What's wrong with today's generation don't they want to take time with anything got to have it now don't check anything out I like to physically put my hands on it kick the tires you say but that's just me I was a mechanic for 36 years

  32. Hey Scotty, I was wondering why my 2003 Tacoma kicked when I stopped or when I switch gears fast it kicks to like for example I reverse in my driveway then I switch to drive it will kick when I switch. Other than that the truck is mint 🤘🏽

  33. It so hard to tell me what to buy people go by looks. I have learned my lesson buy Toyota vehicles if you want reliability.

  34. Thanks for the Video…. I spit soda out of my nose when you said Vending Machine Coffee tastes like "Crap"….. and indeed it does….As Forrest Gump said….. Stupid Is As Stupid Does.

  35. how stupid people buy cars?
    person 1: tHiS cAr LoOkS cUtE
    person 2: yE iT mUsT bE a GrEaT cAr
    thats it no further thought and they dont even know the make of the car much less the model or any real information
    has bubbly head lights that vaguely resemble cute eyes?? must be a great car

  36. Carvana here in the states has the same thing .. it's actually a pretty good deal. They can deliver it to the vending machine or your house and you can return it within 30 days if it's not what you expected. Their prices are pretty reasonable too, and you can haggle if you choose

  37. You're one of the only people on youtube I look forward to uploads from these days. Very interesting, honest, and informative videos. Thanks a lot for all that you've done thus far! I've watched them all. Lookin' forward to the next.

  38. But they do have a 7 day return period. Thats a lot better than dealers give you. So you can test drive it for a week.

  39. “In LONDON”, you say? Do you mean that HOUSTON doesn’t have auto vending machines yet?? 🤔
    Here in SoCal we have 8-story tall vending machines from a company called Carvana. There’s a short video on how they work… my understanding is that you purchase the vehicle, and you’re issued a large “coin/token” which you insert in the vending machine slot, and the robotic mechanism retrieves your purchase and delivers it into the receiving box.
    Sort of like the safe-deposit box in that silly movie “The DaVinci Code”.
