I'd be VERY careful buying a car from an auto auction. I've seen a lot of "junk" coming from those. CEL bulbs removed, ect. Just had one a couple of weeks ago that 'they' broke the LED that operated the CEL. Had to replace the instrument cluster. Then, diagnose why the light was on. There is usually a reason that the cars are sold at auction.

Oooops! Big difference in govt. surplus and car rental agencies...Those vehicles are well maintained. I was referring to the public auto auctions where the car dealers and the unscrupulous dispose of their POS'. Should have been more specific. Sorry. Sure don't want to P'off a forum veteran! Blush
