I found out that my stinking CAR WAS SOLD TO ME AS A FLIPPAN LEMON!
Yep.. I bought a used car.. The people who I bought it from inspected it.. THEN I drove off.. AND WHAMMO A while later I find that the car is so bouncy and just plain hard to drive I took it to a dealer.. I have an oldsmobile.. Ya well while there the man says.. WHEN DID YOU BUY THIS? I SAID.. LIKE IN THE PAST 2 MONTHS...
He said.. the damage on this car is not a "new" thing.. and you couldn't have done this kind of damage in a few months..
At which time I said... WHAT DAMAGE?
Apparently My car is UN-INSPECTABLE.. AND THEY FLIPPIN SLAPPED A STICKER ON THERE... ANYHOW.
So apparently I have been driving my kids in an unsafe vehichle..
Ya, My SHOCK MOUNTS ARE ALMOST RUSTED OFF! That is why my car drives like it does..
At which point I get a knowing look from hubby which means.. "SEE THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH THE CAR I WANTED!"
Now back to in the past few days.. I finally get these guys who sold and inspected my car.. for me.. To fess up.. and here is what they are willing to do..
They said the only thing they can and will do.. since I really would have to get lucky in court to prove anything.. according to them!
I can have $2000.00 back.. OUT OF MY $3900.00 Towards another car on their lot.. But the only cars on their lot right now .. are starting at $4900.00 Which means they want me to
A) TRUST THEIR LOUSY LYING HIDES AGAIN
B) GIVE THEM MORE MONEY TOWARDS THIS OTHER CAR...
C) BASICALLY TAKE IT IN THE PROVERBIAL TAIL PIPE!
MAN I HATE MECHANICS!
I don't have the money for the differance.. And I don't know why almost half the price is gone in only 2 months.. and why I should lose almost all my money when the problem was caused by their shady dealings..
Hubby says to take the offer as we don't have the time/money to fight them..legal battle etc.. and need a car!
I say.. THEY ARE TRYING TO SCREW US A SECOND TIME! First time was because they sold us a crappy car and inspected it ILLEGALLY! Second time is now when they want me to lose 1/2 the value I was supposed to have in this car.. when THE PROBLEM IS STILL ENTIRELY THEIRS!
Why don't they just give me a car... IT WAS THEIR MISTAKE.. NOT MINE!! I mean one of them cars is probably about $3900 that they spent on it.. They would simply just not get the comission from it that they wanted.. And avoid a lawsuit!
Am I wrong?
