If needed and/or wanted a car, but could only afford an ex-rental car or an old taxi, would you buy it or go without? That's the real question. The answer varies from person to person and used car to used car.
Why not buy an ex-rental car that has been test driven, checked out by the buyer, and checked out by a certified mechanic
(i.e., a qualified automobile surveyor
). Whether buying
a car, a boat, or anything else, so long as you know what you're getting yourself into, haven't bitten off more than you can chew, and have taken both into account when negotiating a purchase price
, why not?
