ohhh this salesmen are good

i told hubby to make sure he was geting a good deal well according to what dude we got the car from it was an awesome deal. so hubby need a car for work o he gota 97 ford 150 well he told us the car was in perfect conditions, little miles and very well kepts its pretty and everything. so weve only had it for like a month and we already have to pay $860 on some part that connects the muffler to the engine something like that well 2day hubby almost got into an accident because the breaks just stoped working. so the mechanic went to tow it and he checked it and said the car had really bad breaks it looked liike they had never changed them. that mostlikely they just did some stuff (im not good with cars so im not sure what they did) well they just made the car work good so we can buy it now that we are using it its faling apart. so now the car eint working we have to spend $ on it and we still have to pay 5000 for it

  • Why didn't you have the car checked out by an independent mechanic before you bought it?

  • Yike! I am sorry. Whenever you buy a used car you should take it to be inspected by a professional. It costs a little, but at least you get the straight story.

  • next time have your own mechanic check out the car before you buy it.
