Due to the amount of rebuilt and lemon cars for sale on small dealer lots, I figured it was time to announce some of those cars I come across while doing searches. My intent is to inform those that are looking for a FoRS and the dealers not always mentioning that the car was a re-build or a lemon. If you see one, report one. Here's a few I found this morning.

The car sold for $12,700 on Copart and was re-built then sold again for $25,370 in Burnsville, MN.

2017 Ford Focus RS Hatchback - $21,995

This one is totally sketch with 30k miles, listed as not having any issues and a clean title.

Could this be the car from the infamous video that hit the rocky roadside on a drift mode fail?

I'm really not a fan of cargurus.com for this exact reason. Its way easier for sellers on that site to hide the history of a vehicle compared to Carfax or Autotrader.

It’s funny to see all of the saves. It’s been listed for 6 days & has 57 saves. What’s that ole saying? If it looks to good to be true then it probably is? No clean title & clean carfax RS with 30k miles is selling for 22k. Run & don’t look back......

I actually like the site & fine it easy to navigate through. I just filter out all of the lemons, accidents & salvage cars. After all of the junk is gone, there’s probably 40-50 good RS’s for sale nationwide, still under warranty & with under 30k miles.

My problem with it is they don't offer the carfax report. I'd rather check that the headgasket cover has been repaired before I invest time in a vehicle.

At least you won't have to worry about the headgasket , warranty and the other 100 issues you constantly complain about.......?

On ST wheels and they want ~$5k over market value, they are smoking some crack up there.
