Don't rely on the owner to honestly describe one of his vehicles to you. We contacted Ted's from Houston to ask the condition of a vehicle. We were told it had a clean history, no accidents and the vehicle had a clean carfax... after flying to Dallas to inspect and purchase, the vehicle had been in an accident, had been repaired but telltale signs gave it away. The Carfax indicated that, indeed, the car had been in a bodyshop.
Pros: No Pros
Cons: It's a long way from Houston
