Bought car from dad for blue book price, suspecting its not worth bluebook price

Hey guys,

I recently bought my father’s 2001 Buick Park Avenue for the kelly blue book value. I noticed shortly after driving it a strange vibrating noise coming from what seems to be behind the dash/steering wheel whenever I make a hard right turn. We haven’t finalized the deal thankfully, so I’d like to figure out what is causing it to make sure I’m not getting more than I asked for!



Take it to a trusted mechanic and get a diagnosis. Then go from there. Welcome to the world of used cars. Some, even ones where you know their maintenance history, comes with some risk and surprises. You may have one here.
