Beware people!!!


Cargurs doesn't sell cars, it's a listing site. Your beef is with the seller, not Cargurus.


Car Gurus lets people list their cars/trucks for Free ... same as Craigslist


X2 get into the seller, what seems to be the problem with the engine? What engine did you transplant and into what? Has your mechanic performed a compression test or leak down test ?


You didn't buy the car from CarGurus, you bought the car from the seller. THAT is who you need to be upset with. Being upset with CarGurus is like being upset at the newspaper because you bought something that broke. Makes no sense. By the way, there are plenty of junkyard engines that are in great condition and work perfectly. Just because a car is in a junkyard does not mean all of the parts are unusable. I'd get a second opinion from another mechanic before shelling out big money.
