Went to look at a little car for my lad yesterday. Thought i would stay VAG so cheapest is a Fabia 1.2.
Saw a reasonable one one said site & rang up to visit.
Arrived & it was already running on the drive. Had a quick look & it seemed ok. Took it for a spin & it was knocking on the left so assumed dodgy ARB bush or suspension.
Inspection light was on and under the bonnet was a sticker saying it was due for service in about 3000 miles.
The car was filthy & needed a good clean
Car was up for 1650 so was going to offer £1500
I asked about the Timing belt
"Its just had a service"
No it hasnt
"It has, anyway they are not that dear to replace"
Its got a knocking on the left i suspect a bush needs doing
"well thats not much to do, Its cheap for the year and you know it so i,m not knocking it down"
Door is slammed shut in my face
Customer service - nil
Presentation - nil
Knowledge of product - nil
On returning home i noticed the car has increased £100. This is probably taking into account what i said so she can knock £100 & they think its a good deal.
What a total fcukwitt. How do these people make it in the world. No wonder the country is on its arse.
My money spends anywhere & it will be doing so this week
