GET A POLICY MANUAL FROM THE AUCTION AND LEARN THE AUCTION POLICIES.
(Below is a picture taken from an actual car at a dealer auction.)
Had you read your auction policy manual, you would have found that claims such as "runs great" or "no surprises" are NOT backed up by the auction. You will NOT find these phrases in the auction policy manual. Wholesalers can write whatever they want to on the windshield. Unfortunately, the auction obviously doesn't go out of their way to scrape this writing off.
Therefore, you will have absolutely NO recourse if you buy this car and it does NOT run great. You will have NO recourse if you buy this car and you DO find a surprise.
Chances are, you WILL find surprises in this car. We all like surprises (the birthday kind). However, there will be no birthday present here. The only surprise you will find is the look on your own face when you break down and become stranded on the freeway!!!
