    Hi All! Looking to buy a used gen 3 Prius and want to do an independent non bias inspection on the car before I hand over the cash.

    im located in union city, but anywhere in the bay is fine.

    is there a shop who’s known for doing good by members and would trust for this type of work?

    thanks!

    How much you looking to spend on this inspection and what do you want covered as part of the inspection:whistle:?

    When does the inspection need to take place by?

    Good lick with your purchase (y).

    Lol. I’m not sure how much to spend. Hoping for some guidance here

    I don’t buy cars or used cars very often, and my assumptions are an independent inspection looking to maintain a trustworthy local reputation has incentives that better align with mine vs the dealer’s

    ultimately just looking to do my homework and avoid costly unexpected expenses in the future as best I can

    Can it see cleared codes? I read some people mention that they are able to read cleared codes. It will be very useful if we can get an affordable one seems independent seller can sometimes be sketchy and go as far as clearing the code to make it looks fine and all.

    hello all. anyone in the area with a battery conditioner or prolong battery discharger to share/rent/co share? I think the treatment would be beneficial to my 08 Gen 2 with 120K. Thank you

    If you talk nicely to @SFO and @The Critic , they might entertain the idea;).

    But private messages may answer your request:).

    Good luck(y).

    With all the COVID-19 stuff going on, maybe not for a couple weeks are least;).

    But soon, especially if you have the ability to host:).

    You can ask @Ianmeister , we don't cause much of a fuss and clean up after ourselves(y).

    We’ll have to find a host. Although I have the space, I don’t think my neighbors would tolerate the noise or the traffic.

    Maybe if you eradicate the snakes, maybe they'd be supportive:).

    But that's a task I know I couldn't do very easily(y).

    I bartered a 4-wheel brake job in exchange for a snake fence. Installation is scheduled for sometime after this storm...
