Your more prone to get the story on a modded car from the owner actually selling it themselves. And you'll see how much they took care of it.

Where I live, car dealers don't certify used vehicles. And our laws are a lot less strict than NY. So there's modded cars anywhere. But I'm sure there's no rule, but to say don't buy a modded car is just ridiculous.

I never said to the OP NOT to buy the car..... I simply said my opinion in staying away from it.

"Run stupidly" is independent of modifications made.

Look for the trucks with catch cans and immaculate interiors. Even with more major mods-since going FI I'm constantly under the hood making sure everything is optimized. I personally won't go over 2500 rpm until my oil is 180°.

....now if you find crumbled up time slips stuffed under the seat I'd probably move on!

Because buying a modded car is also buying someone's else headaches too. But hey if you're in the market to buy headaches by all means go right ahead!
To me, your mentality on buying a modded car is ridiculous. I've sold a lot of cars that I have modded, and I have also returned a lot of cars to stock before they were sold. So, modded or not--sometimes you never know. I think the right approach is to look at the overall condition of the car. If it's a private sale, the owners knowledge of the car and general attitude towards the car can tell you a lot.

The condition of the car has nothing to do with aftermarket parts--it's all about how the car was maintained. If someone neglects a car, it doesn't matter what parts are on the car.

What's the difference? Both statements seem to convey the same message

The first half of your first comment is ridiculous.... to say "you've sold a lot of modded cars and returned cars back to stock before returning them" is not the topic here. Of course after you do either what do you care what happens to the car or who buys it. It's out of your hands at that point. And that right there is my point. You could've sold/traded a modded car with motor issues that the dealer didn't pick up on. And of course you're not going to say anything about it because why screw up the monetary value you're getting for it. Then the next guy comes along buys it and finds out he bought a modded car with issues....


I will agree with the second have of the first comment in saying needing to look at the overall condition of the car and gather as much info on it to make a smart buy. And I did state before that your more prone to get the full story from a private sale than the dealer.

To your second comment, again if a DEALER is selling a modded car, you can't count on him knowing the health of the motor. For all he knows it could have a bent rod or spun bearing or whatever, he's just gonna sell the car and a cheap ass warranty to make you feel warm and fuzzy. And that could be with a car in good condition. By the way this ties right back into the first half of the first comment.

And to your third comment, it does not convey the same thing, I stated my opinion as to why I wouldn't buy a modded car from a dealer throughout the thread. I never said "Don't buy this car at all" if the OP wants to buy it or bought it already I'm sure he did his homework and looked over everything.
