Any car is a time bomb. No matter what you do or how well you maintain it.
Way way back in my mechanic days, I replaced many motors under warranty that had 30k or less. Mopar and GM. You just never know when that one crucial piece will fail bringing the whole thing down.

I'd say be upfront about any little thing you can think of. I've sold and swapped many a piece of shit with my buddies and we're still cool. But they all knew everything about the cars/trucks/etc.



I did have one instance with a 02 Sonoma though. I got it, never had the chance to look it over, traded it to a friend for a running 1 ton with a 454 I wanted. That little truck was beyond fucked. I can't even describe the things that were hacked in and chopped off underneath. It had been bagged at some point, the bottom of the frame was paper thin where it had any frame left, the fuel pump wiring harness had about 6 extra feet spliced in with household wire nuts, it was beyond repair. I ended up feeling so bad that I bought it back and took it to the scrap yard.

I may just let him read this thread to show him my concern and then list any little tiny thing I've ever had go wrong with the car (not much lol).

So runnin, after you screw over your friend how long do you think it will take for him to unfriend you on Facebook?

You have texting friends and that roommate who ditched you. That counts for something @Swift

If he's a real friend he wodnt quit talking to you over a car you sold him having issues as long as you were honest with what you knew to be wrong with it.

I bought my VW from a good friend and it turned out to be the biggest piece of shit on earth. He doesn't know a lot about cars though and was honest with what he knew about it. I blame myself for not staying away after reading the many many horror stories about those piece of shit cars online. No harm no foul. We are still good friends today and hang out all the time. Life is to short to be pissed off and lose a friend over a damn car. Unless they flat out lied to you to fuck you over, but then they wouldn't be much of a friend would they?

I sold my 91 Escort to a friend when I moved to Tennessee. I let her know everything I knew of that was wrong with it, and she called me a few times to ask for advice on fixing it up while I was gone. When I moved back she gave me $200 and some beer to help her put in a new clutch, brakes, shocks, ball joints and a stereo. That car now has almost 300k on it and it's still on the road today.
