Friend wants me to drive a car that he is trying to buy. It needs to go 300 miles to where he's at. But I just saw the listing and its got a lot of problems - so I'm wondering if I should do it - even though he's offering me some money.
In the listing it says:
Mechanical issues with this vehicle INCLUDE, but are NOT limited to the following problems:
-The right front lower ball joint is loose.
-The right CV boot is torn.
-The front lower radius rod bushings are worn out and torn.
-The front end suspension and steering components of the car make noises.
-There is a minor oil leak.
-There is an exhaust leak. The exhaust is loud.
-The display on the heater control panel does not work. The controls, however, do seem to work at least partly.
-Several doors squeak when you open them.
-The blower motor is loud.
-The Air Conditioning does not seem to work.
-The power mirrors are not functional.
How safe do you think this is for a trip?
