Why Are Consumers Still Being Conned After All These Years?

used car scam

Taking a drive over to eBay’s Motors community forum today It’s mostly the same old whine about getting scammed. As it’s often said in the car business, theirs an ASS for every seat.

Why Do People Buy Cars Out-Of-State Without An Inspection?

used car purchased out-of-state no inspection

Buying a used car out-of-state without having it inspected is a foolish buying decision. This is especially true for automobiles with salvage or rebuilt titles. Another unhappy car buyer is crying the blues over this 2016 Chevy Malibu that was in a flood. There’s a reason this car was bought at HALF of book value! Update 07/15/19: Apparently this sellers ID has been changed to rebuiltcars0199. Feedback is still good but always inspect used cars bought online.

Buying A Car Online? Inspect First Before Purchasing

I Will Inspect Before I Bid When Buying Online!

Yet another buyer unhappy when buying a car at a wholesale price. Seems to me this Cadillac Seville STS was a bargain for $3750.00! But it’s buyer apparently does not think so. Personally speaking from past experience learned the hard way I must say. It’s best to be sure a car has a good battery when it’s being delivered.
