That's hard to say. I would tell the owner that you want to take it by a mechanic and make sure nothing is wrong, they shouldn't have a problem with that unless they have something to hide. Wish I could be more help, good luck.
How are you doing buddy. I was wondering if you can give me a hand on a Jeep Wrangler 2006 Sport that Im trying to buy. Its stick with 50k miles, well maintain but when I shift from 1st to 2nd I hear a little clanking noise. Picture this for a second :
Shift 1st, take off, shift 2nd but you wait like a second before you step on the gas, I'm doing this at very low speed. Any idea would be greatly appreciated.
