    I remember an earlier video by Scotty warning us not to buy the Camry with that 8 speed transmission. I had that car as a loaner and though the ride was compliant, the continuous shifting was kind of annoying. I ended up buying a new Camry hybrid because I scored a good deal. There is no shifting here as it is a CVT. Quicker than the regular 4 banger and scoring over 50 mpg. I am good...

      Sounds like a lazy mechanic. They can easily check the fluid at the fill plug. Just TELL them to change your trans fluid, don't ask them. Toyotas aren't magic cars (except my 95 Camry) and they will not run forever on the original fluid. It definitely needs changing at 90-100k if it has never been done. If they don't want the job take your business elsewhere.

    People selling used want as much as dealers but they don't seem to want to certify them first or detail them. Another reason many people want so much for used is because they owe more than the vehicle is worth. That's what you get when you opt for 7 year payment plan.

    Scotty love ya but stop telling your fans dealers buy cars for half of the value. 28 yrs a sales manager in three states I have appraised thousands of cars. A 25000 retail book car is not taken in at a dealer for 12500. You said you bought a used car for 500 private party and dealer wanted 7000 you ripped that guy off. Trade in book, auction values are used. If the trade has body damage and a transmission that wont shift the reconditioning is deducted. Everyone wants to bash in the head of a car dealer. I worked for a dealer that lost $140,000 a month in wholesale loss and had no problem with that. That means he put way too much money into a trade to sell new ones. His angle made him #1 retailer in country, sold more parts and service that anyone and it made him and his employees rich enough to be happy. His sales people stayed forever, hundreds of customers would only buy from their sales person and he did not have to spend 400 thousands on advertising only about 70. Your great and I have learned a lot from you. STOP PERPETUATING ALL CAR DEALERS ARE CROOKS. I know many dealers that are great companies that provide outstanding service to there customers. If they are crooks then every business that makes a profit including you are a crook. Sick of this all dealers are crooks dialog.

    Hi Scotty, greetings from Europe. A small clarification, the Jeep Renegade is made on a Fiat 500X base not on Fiat 500L. That said in Europe the best-selling crossover is the Renault Captur because it is the cheapest. That said, many Volkswagen T-Rocs and Jeep Renegades are also sold. Nobody buys the Honda HR-V in Europe, but we mainly buy diesel vehicles here.

    Well Scotty, Kia en Hyundai are goods brands. It's just like you don't like Suzuki, but did you know the new Suzuki Across is a toyota Rav4?

    UNREALISTIC!!!!! I am willing to bet money that the $500. car that Scotty bought was from a former (TRUSTING SCOTTY) customer or fan and NOT a stranger (like most everyone else would have to buy one). Pretty certain that Scotty has admitted to such transactions in past videos. In my experience, if the used Toyo is any near fairly priced, and you (as a NORMAL person / non AMget star like Scotty) try negotiating (much)... Either the seller wil just not take your calls or texts any more, or it will be bought out from under you faster than you can say "Sco...".
