Junk/salvage question by Michael[_23_]
The used car dealer tells me that the 4 junk/salvage notes in the car's records are because it went through an insurance auction. Could this be the case, or should I run from this deal as fast as possible? Thanks, Mike

Is it normal for the outside edges of the front tires to be stairstepping on the outer inch or two only? By stairstepping, I mean that you can't see the wear all that much but if you rub your hand over the tread in one direction, you can feel a lip on each side swipe tread. If you run your hand...
