<<BTW, how do I do the Lemon check? Also most of the car salepersons I encountered refuse to give me a copy of the window sticker of the pacticular I was interested in. I had to stand in the hot sun,scribbing down the pertinent information. And many time I had to "educate" the sale persons because they did not know about the car features. Sad!!! >>

Lemon check http://www.carfax.com

The dealership kept their inventory on computer so that they printed a page that had the specifications of the car I was looking at and the asking price. The page had a couple of errors which I corrected on my copy. Sheet said 6 cylinder, and it had an 8 cylinder. I also knew more about the car than the salesman. I guess it's understandable that I should know more about the car than they salesman, I'm going to live with my decision for 10-20 years he just has to find someone who wants to buy it, and I'm not sure how many buyers are Fools.
