If your looking at a car and the owner says you can't have it inspected walk away you don't want it.

A reputable mechanic will know what to look for. Cost verys in diff areas...

(1) if the seller won,t allow it to be inspected by a reputable dealer/mechanic WALK AWAY and be very sure somethings wrong.
(2) prices vary wildly but the $100-$150 for a totally through inspections about average, $50-$80 for a brief inspection
(3) mostly looking for acident damage, missing or wrong components rust, exxcessive wear, parts needing replacement and strait frame and suspension, signs the car was abused or well cared for
