When we arrived at the seller’s house, we found the YJ unwilling to start. Generally that’s a good sign to walk away, but for us it’s all part of the game. We figure if the Jeep won’t start that’s a good way to haggle down the price. Sure, we have to gamble that the fix is fairly simple and be wary it could be a convenient way to hide a blown transmission, bad head gasket, or other expensive repair. You shouldn’t trust anyone, but we could see that the seller had recently spent money trying to get the thing running. For us, this meant we were able to talk the price down and haul our new piece home.
