:mad:

I cannot believe how busines is conducted today. I am looking for a LDV and have seen many on sale by cars.co.za with GENERIC photos. I requested them to post a picture of the vehicle for sale, only to be informed -"Sorry we cannot be of assistance" - I have the email!!

Has any other buyer experienced this when looking for a vehicle? Why bother to place a classified if you cannot show the picture of the item that you are trying to "sell" :mad:

 

I wonder if I will get a reply to my email??

I agree with You , it is no good advertising online and then the buyer can not view the item online and make a decision. Instead they want to be contacted and then You spend time and money going there to listnen to sales talk.My 2c oppinion.

 

I must also say there is sellers that spend a lot of time taking good photos to market there items and it is always a pleasure looking at there item.

 

Regards

Joe

Hi David & Joe

 

Many thanks for your "2c worth" - Good one David. Joe thanks for the comment about taking decent photos, especially when it comes to cars (KIT for David) where dealers don't always describe the vehicle properly & needs an expert eye to physically check it over before any thought is entertained about buying

 

Regards

Well, I hope you aren't looking for a pedal car, Kit W! lol

 

I absolutely agree that if people don't want to do business properly then they shouldn't be in business. Hope you soon find the LDV you are looking for. :)

You Guys ...

 

You are dealing with CAR SALESMAN.

 

*Guys that market cars that do not exist.

 

* Who is the ONLY people in possession of Golf GTI , mags, fowerflo, and racing cam,

driven by an old lady going to an old age home.

 

* We recently bought a Renault Scenic Dinamique 1.9 CDI with Panoramic Roof.

Not via bid or buy, but done the exercises.

 

The original car were booked by us, then the 4 guys that we inquired at, all tried to sell the same car to us,

Up to R30 000 more in cases.

 

Our first deal fell through, after a car were 1 year younger than the manufacture date..

Sold as a 2009 model by "GM" Registered in 2009, but the papers said it were manufactured in 0ct 2008.

They charged us book price for a 2009 model.

They went quiet when we inquired, and just disappeared.

All document had been signed

It were a CASH purchase, which we had been penalized for with another R4500 for Kick-back lost by the BANK as reward to the dealer obtaining finance.

 

It is a Hole, and at all times common sense should Prevail

 

It is your money, While you have it... Make sure you really buying what you intend to buy.

 

We bought a car, a 'Year " older, But younger than the "later" model for R15 000 cheaper, and a lot more luxury.

 

Shop around... Bid or Buy, although NOT the perfect place to shop for cars,

It is a great place to start.

 

We found it nice and competitive, as the market is tough.

 

Always Practice a clear sense of "Buyer Beware"

 

Regards

Hey! I used to sell cars... but then again my then-boss ripped me off when he refused to give me all my commissions, plus then he withheld my year-end bonus! No wonder I took matters further and told him exactly where he could shove his job! LOL

 

I'm better off without that a******!

Only 5 years for fraud of over R1 million? Seems our Courts are far too lenient!

Manufacturing date and registration date are not the same thing. The year model works on the year of registration and not the manufacturing date. This is why so many people hold back registrations until Jan of the following year if they buy in December.
