Considering my 22 GT Premium w/ PP/MR/AE/nav/recaros cost the equivalent of around 48k USD brand new, I can't imagine paying 40 for a used one.
Again, I understand where you're coming from, but there are all sorts of shifty people out there. I personally wouldn't let a stranger hook a laptop up to my home wifi, let alone my vehicle through a PCM port ;)This entire thing was based on a previous experience of buying a pre-owned GT that ended up having problems on problems that got to a point where it gave me anxiety to drive, I don't want a repeat of that
I respect your opinion and that's exactly why I posted this, I want all the retrospective I can get before making a moveAgain, I understand where you're coming from, but there are all sorts of shifty people out there.

C. guys says no to both and tells you to kick rocks.B. guy says no
in the case of B "okay, no problem, but I will need it in writing that I can return the car if i find ANYTHING after purchasing the vehicle when i look in this PCM".
im sure they'll happily let you take a look then. B is actually better because it gives you a blank check for returning the product.
If you’re a payment buyer you should compare new vs used. Interest rates are lower and terms longer on new cars, often narrowing the payment difference compared to used.I love my loud, fast cars but I don't want to pay more than $500 a month lol, I can, but I don't want to
CarMax gives you 30 days no questions asked.Noone's gonna sign anything saying that they will take it back in x amount of time after the sale if the new owner finds something.
Excessive? Yes. Needed? YES! Don’t trust anyone, absolutely do that. Either do it yourself or pay for an independent mechanic to do a pre purchase inspection. Sales people might roll their eyes but it isn’t their money on the line so they can buzz off. Don’t end up with a junker!Hey ya'll it's been a wild ride. Started with a 2000 Rav4 to a 2010 Toyota Matrix to a 2013 Dodge Dart to a 2016 Mustang v6 to a 2016 Mustang GT to a 2022 TLX to a 2022 Genesis G70 3.3t... aaaaaaaaaaaand I'm back in the market for a Mustang GT. Feel free to browse my previous post history about my old 16 GT and my horribad experience but I had to get out of it. And now I want to get back in but a 2018+ lol. THAT IS NOT WHAT THE POST IS ABOUT THOUGH;
When I go shopping soon, I want to bring my laptop with my diagnostic cables and programs just to see the history and stats, is that weird? Besides physical inspection and test driving, I want to deep dive into the PCM. I imagine the salesperson will be weirded out a bit lol. That being said, is that too much?
So you are saying you learn nothing from previous mistake and now you hope a forscan check is going to save you the trouble ?This entire thing was based on a previous experience of buying a pre-owned GT that ended up having problems on problems that got to a point where it gave me anxiety to drive, I don't want a repeat of that
Yeah, I believe you, but the seller may not. Or may not understand.That's fair but I don't have some secret hacker type of intention where I distract the guy and start clackin' away in a minute time frame and hope he doesn't catch me. Up front, simple and transparent is the name of my game
