Rant #1: Used Vehicles.Category: (general)

Today, I will be ranting about people who buy used vehicles.

Here's the deal. If you're some broke asshole who can't afford an awesome car and is
planning to buy a used one, you have absolutely no right to complain when something
goes wrong.

A lot of used vehicle dealers tend to lie about the vehicles they're selling.
"Oh yeah, it's a 2003 Honda Accord four-door sedan."
And in their heads, they're like "Just kidding! It's an army tank from World War 2."
or even better, a horse. Or maybe it IS a 2003 Honda Accord four-door sedan, but it's
probably infested with rats and bugs and probably smells like stale Doritos and old
people's shoes.

Another thing about used vehicles...you don't know where they've been and what
they've been through. An innocent teenaged girl could have been a rape victim in the
backseat of the car that you now casually drive down the street in, while blasting
your favorite AC/DC or Taylor Swift album. A mother could've given birth to a child
with abnormalities in that backseat. The child could've been thrown out the window,
and you would never know.

Oh, and by the way, yes. My family are proud owners of a used vehicle. And guess
what? I don't give a flying fuck whether my car was used as a homeless shelter once
upon a time or if it was involved in a drive-by-shooting. Shit don't matta to me.

Also, you're probably going to spend 10x more cash trying to fix the car (if it's
broken when you buy it, and the previous owner "forgets" to mention that the engine
doesn't work) than you'll spend buying a new one.

But the point of this rant is... Think about these things the next time you want to
be a cheap ass and purchase a used vehicle. There is definitely more than meets the
eye when it comes to things like this.

/end of rant.

Completely unneeded rant.  Used vehicles are most commonly good cars
that people don't want anymore.  My KYMco Xciting 250 was used when we
bought it, but it was in near-perfect condition, like a new one.  My
dad's Lincoln Towncar '99 was a used car when we bought it, and it ran
perfectly for many years. My dad's Dodge Caravan was used, and it is
completely fine.  My mom's Infinity I30 was used, and it works without
a hitch.  My brother's 1995 Yamaha Virago was used when we bought it 2
months ago, and there are only a couple minor problems. But
considering that we got it for $2300, and had a complete work-up done
for $700, and the final problem, the turn signals, will cost $300 to
fix, we spent a total of $3300 on a works-like-new motorcycle.

Point given. Point taken?

Point gladly taken.
My family has had some pretty decent used cars, but you have to
realize a lot of them are total crap, too.
I get your point. A lot of them work perfectly. The one I have now
works perfectly. But what I'm trying to say is that the moment
something goes wrong, people have a tendency to complain. That's all.
And as you should've been able to tell, I wasn't being totally serious
while ranting this, either.
