I am not saying that buying a used car can be risk-free - there is always some risk.
Yeah try and see what a headache it becomes.In Canada (at least in Ontario)we have protection from the goverment against misrepresentation from registered automobile dealers,but in the US you are on your own unless you get involved in the legal crap.For a few $ it is just not worth it as I do not have enough time to do everything I need to do.
