So I needed a new delivery car, one I could beat on, pretty cheap since the car will be done in 1-2 years anyways. Found an Ad on cragslist for Mazda 3 2005, she was fine with a inspection on the vehicle. But at 11AM she said the car wouldn’t start, probably the alternator, we will fix it. At 2Pm I said that’s fine, I was gonna replace starter , battery and alternator for winter anyways. She said you can still bring the car in the cables were loose on the battery and she fired up. So I drove to this auto shop, turns out this couple who’s selling the car doesn’t own the shop. But have a small 100ftx100ft office in the back of the building with a separate business name. Just a desk and some chairs. So I brought the car in, Found out rust on all the rotors and bald wheels, also dash light wasn’t working. When I told the Arabic car seller the dash light wasn’t working , he started to smirk and say I thought that was issue too, but it’s not dark enough yet (even tho super cloudy and raining) but I was like umm… ya okay… and after I said send me a picture tonight of the lights working.
Two hours later received a picture and he said sorry the fuse wasn’t in all the way.
Another sketchy part is Since he’s a dealer, I get the bill of sales , copies of dmv paper work and supposley 21 day permit for no licenses etc
Should I be skeptical at all, or was this couple just having like a off day or something and just weirded me out.
I’m use to title in hand but first time with some tiny little room shop, also his “MK Auto Sales” doesn’t show up on google. So idk what to think or do.
