Hello members of Car Forums! This is my first time posting on this forum so please do forgive me if I sound too new. This isn't my first car purchase, but it's the first time I really feel connected with the process and involved, so I wanted to make sure I came to the right place. I'm looking to buy a used car with about a 8,000 max budget and today I ran into something that I wanted to ask some knowledgeable people about. A used dealership (a pretty well respected and legit one) near me got in a pair of 2011 Ford Fusion Hybrids today for $8500 each. They are in immaculate condition inside, have brand new looking tires, and only have about 40,000 on the odometer. The cars came from a fleet so they are both equipped the same. The owner of the lot said he only has them priced where he does due to the fact that they both definitely have some hail damage. This doesn't bother me, as I know it can positively effect price for the buyer without much of a downside beside aesthetics. I was wondering what you all think about even looking at an 8 year old hybrid car. I test drove one of the two and it seemed to be quite the exquisite experience. Everything was perfect, worked perfectly, sounded perfectly...(there was barely any sound at all) I know batteries are a concern as well as the CVT but they really do seem to be nice cars. Any opinions, thoughts, or concerns?
2006 Lincoln Zephyr 3.0L v6, FWD Stock radio, no navigation 61000K miles I just bought the car, almost positive it has the factory alternator never been changed. I had put in: 2 CVR-12 Kickers, power acoustik 1800w 2 channel Class A/B amp, no power capacitor as I experienced with my old car that it made the alternator worst. So this time instead of installing it myself I took it to best buy, bought my own wire kit (power acoustic 4GA) even tho the wire kid says 4 gauge, the guy said its too slim, not really a 4ga, he cant put a warranty on it, but he will install it. So I told him to do so. Now today I have noticed a clicking like sound coming from the engine, sounds like maybe one of the pulleys. Don't want to blow the alternator out, or have any snapped belts. Anyone had this problem?? Or how can I tell how many amps ismy alternator?? What kind of alternator do I need? Or is it all fine and I'm over reacting??
