figure this out-

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
You buy a car fot $3700. Its used.

You offert he person $200 extra to hold it so u can get money together on the 18th

A week later (the 7th) u have the money and ask to pick up. The person you are buying from has had a family emergancy and hasnt gotten to clean the car out %100

They left a hitch and handicapped handcontrols in the car.

You NEVER drove the car, never looked under the hood, never asked questions other then when was the last oil change and does the heat work. But the seller cleans car out and says u can pick up.

As is where is no warrenty no guarantee expressed or implied on ALL paperwork.

Fastfoward to today: you go to get the car inspected on the last day of a 10day tag and it fails.

Would you then go back to the seller and demand money back?! The car is an '04 and when we parked it it was FINE. We had it inspected in MAY and tore off the sticker cause we planned on parking it from dec to may and didnt want it stollen etc.

The family that got it said they want half the money back to fix an issue but wont tellus what issue, or wants % 100 back and us to take the car back.

They have had it since the 7th and never said a word!

Thwy said I shouldnt delete them on FB cause they know where I live and said they will take us to court.

Sorry but the as is where is no warrantee on ALL papers protects us...... right???

That's their fault for not test driving it and getting it check out prior to purchasing it.  Their loss - anything used is typically "as is".

Yeah, I didn't read it correctly. It's been a long day. You don't owe them anything.

I sold it. Not buy. I never promised anything. I said it passed in may and was parked in december. She even drove it away w no ins tags or reg.






Quoting Anonymous:

Your fault for not having it inspected first. As is sale comes with no warranty. Unless you can prove that the seller promised it would pass, you're sol.

Going to court is pointless on their end. If the words AS IS/NO WARRANTY shows on all paperwork, they have nothing. Delete them and move on.

nope - buyer beware - should have taken the proper precautions and asked questions before you exchanged money.

The buyers don't stand a chance. As-is, where-is means no implied warranty so yes, you are protected.  I'm assuming they knew the car had been parked for 9 months and weren't denied to opportunity - i fhtey had asked - to have a mechanic inspect.

Once they signed your as-is, where-is clause and gave you the money, they were the owner. If the car didn't start they would had to tow the car from your property or arrange to pay you storage fees until the car was moved.

i think hey all take the chance of something going wrong when buying from anything but a dealer.. i dont think they can do anything about it, you can easily rgue that it was fine and you never know, they might have fucked it up on purpose and and trying to put the blame on you
