Don't do it! Not because of the car but because of who you are buying
it from. Never do buisness where money is involved with friends,
family and/or neighbors. Why? Let's say that he/she sold you the car
thinking it was in good runing order than when you take ownership the
car had a major component go bad all of a sudden. Than naturaly you
yourself would assume that she/he knew that he/she was selling you a
bad car. Trying to sell a problem to somebody else. Than what?
The truth is you have to live next to your neighbor. You have no
choice. If your relationship goes bad there is no avoiding your
neighbor at all.
Buy a car from somebody else or through a company.
