Nice deal and good MPG.
You might want to read up on some more of his posts before you tell him he got a good deal. Just beware. There is some scary stuff.
Hasn’t this thing self destructed yet?
well yeah it's been in a bad accident I mean if the air bags deployed[at some point in time] then yes... with bolts and tampered with Air bag Control modules (Factory wax seals have been tampered with)
if it was only 6k-7k then it would have been a decent buy.. i would not have paid 12.9k for it total if I knew about this accident
I have a pending claim with the dealers bond i also tact on the scam product they added on for 1,200$
but every turn around the corner was a issue waiting for me and is never ending...
from title issues
engine getting damaged at a chain shop...
a lot of stuff was electrical issues solved by replacement of the very weak 4 year old 12v+battery....and a loose connection of one of the battery posts... the hybrid is heavily dependent on the 12volt system...
the engine ran great tell it ran out of oil with in 164 miles
(chain shop forgot to tighten the filter and drain plug) ...
yeah the engine still runs but as the days go by and the sound of it is getting worse and worse..
you can hear a bit of knocking as well... heavy valve chatter and knocking sound upon start up(have not figured out which cylinder though but this chatter and knocking is on bank1)
this was not previously present as an issue.. before the oil leaked out.. it was pretty quiet as a kitten sometimes i had to check to see if it was in autostop or running
this same chain shop also disconnected my map sensor as well (physically disconnected these are car connectors they just don't come loose they are a pain in the butt to disconnect them plastic connectors)
the next day while driving it the engine stalled out feet away from the train tracks as a PASSENGER train was coming they were about 1miles to 1 miles 1/2 away going about 60-70mph...
I had people claim "hey it should have sprayed everywhere" THAT is total BS as a NORMAL house faucet is 50 PSI and can drip fast or slow.. DOES your leaking faucet spray everywhere as it;'s leaking.... remember 50 PSI is 50PSI same as the engine oil PSI thank you very much
50PSI of air, 50PSI of water and 50PSI of oil is 50 PSI at the end of the day
@NathanJax or @07Burb , with Trevor's approval (or not) please correct the spelling of 2011DenaliHybid's username ... I'd like the ocd seizures to stop now.
OMG THERE IT IS
Maybe he chose to leave out the “r” and go with 2011DenaliHybid because he bought it at an auction by having the High Bid?
@kind16, I told you to be careful, it can get scary!
I’m surprised he didn’t go into his skills and abilities as a precision driver and a mastery of geometry.
