I do not see any of the parts you replaced was caused by lack of maintenance.
Why would you change trans fluid and filter after 9,000 miles? and the brake pads after 15,000 miles?
Out of context. I said "didn't care to maintain the car, hence the low price."
He didn't fix the worn brake pads even though they made the indicator noise, he never flushed the trans fluid, it was burned up, tensioner was making noises as well as alternator, never changed cabin filter or engine air filter, sliding door actuator was dead for a couple years, etc etc
His house looked the same way: disgusting mess. He was busy trying to make money with art while his wife was the only real breadwinner, for 6 kids.
