hi!

Based on my experiences, sedan has no big problem to pass ARTC testing. Please note every car can pass the testing. However older car may have more risk to fail. What happens if it fails? Change or tune up something, then re-test it. It just cost more to do re-testing and tuning up.

It's the report for first car:

From the report shown, it looks no any big problem. However I suspect there are some problems:
There are 3 owners living in 3 states : Normally American won't buy cars from other states because they need to pay extra-cost for shipping. So normally car dealers shipped the car to other state to sell. Why? Maybe trying to hide something. Look at the second owner living in BLOOMINGTON, IN. He drove this car for 4 years only for 10000 miles (from 42109 to 51618). I suspect he may change the odometer.


The second car:

There was an accident reported on 11/13/2003.
The most weired thing is that there is no mileage report for this 8 years car, which is the first one I have ever seen. There must be some problems on this car. I won't consider this car if I were you.


It's my opinion for your reference.

thanks!
