Default Check your level sensor arms to see if they are disattached.

Day 2 and still having the issue intermittently. Any thoughts

I wouldn't spend any money for any mechanic to check out the car, unless I'm blind, deaf or senseless. Quite many people on here paid for ppi and got junk cars and had to sell after spend tons of money. If you can't feel the honesty of owner, too lazy to inspect and testing out the car, don't buy any $80k cars, why pay $200 for someone to look for you? Do they care about buying the car as you do? Where's the logic in it? Give the money to charity, good karma would steer you into the right car instead.
I bought the car 450 miles away, talked to the owner through email for months, he even told me the problems I had never asked that wouldn't show up any where, any machine.
