What is your best car shopping/buying tip?


I just had an "aha" moment this weekend about my used 99 Nissan Altima that I bought a little over three years ago. I realized that my car had water damage and possibly had been sitting in water before being sold to unsuspecting me. It literally took me three years to realize this and when I did it all made sense. Prior to when I bought it there was massive flooding issues through out the state ( and North East for that matter). Boy do I feel like an idiot. So my tip is inspect for moisture, rust in the car and under the car, brown blotches on the upholstery or carpets and get a carfax report.
