: Things to check before buying

Considering I don't have the money to buy a new TT or the necessary know-how to look smart it would be useful to know the things are good to check before purchasing the car.

I know lots of parts can go bad but don't know which one to check for. I bought the TT service manual from Amazon and will study it throughly before going for shopping :)

I might as well take a friend with me that's good with cars but would like to know some TT expert's opinions.

There are LOTS of things to look, listen and feel for. I bought a 95 for $600 + $500 strut repair and for the year that I've had it, it hasn't been in a shop. Unfortunately the AC needs to be recharged so... anyway, here is a link that will help you greatly. It would take a while for me to explain all of the things to check for. YouTube - How to buy a used car. real good tips
This guy has been working on cars his whole life. Anyway, hope this helps.
