Just curiosity on my part, but it would be interesting to contact the original buyers of these cars...
Is that possible here? I know in the UK you can pay the DVLA (DMV) a fee to get every previous registration certificate (title) issued on your car. It is popular with classic car owners wanting to get the history of their car.
But you never know...as many here know, I simply regretted buying my '09. Still kinda do, but Cindy convinced me that it's best to try to drive my money out of it. I offered it for $20K here when the odo read only 4,000. Mark wanted it, but was unable to buy...no other offers. Probably best for me that it didn't sell. It's been a reliable and comfortable driver for a hair over 30,000 miles now. Just not a thrill ride for me.
So, could be a story similar, with the original buyer simply not happy with the car, or could be repoed, or something fishy...damage not being revealed.
Anybody considering one of these cars, I'd advise proceeding with extreme caution..
Could be any of those like you say. Could some also be dealer test cars etc? I think the most likely explanation is either people aren't enjoying them and got the opportunity to buy something else or can't keep up the payments (I have seen one confirmed case of this). I'd be surprised if they were damaged and been fixed up so quickly.
I have a collection of Mustangs and Capris
Any 1st/2nd gen? (1971-1977)
My 2019, while it puts a huge smile on my face every time I drive it, the transmission has issues 100%. I know it. Dealer knows it. Ford denies it. Itís well documented on service history but I know I put too few miles on it having so many other cars to spread my driving time around that the real issues will surface when itís well out of warranty. With Fordís terrible track record with my last 6 F150s and various warranty issues, I just know Iím on my own to correct their manufacturing flaws. This transmission included. That cost will far exceed the money I have spent fixing F150s on my own that Ford wouldnít step up on.
I bleed Ford blue. But my blood is running thin...
That sucks, I'm so sorry to hear that. I haven't gotten mine yet and will probably buy used but I'd be crushed to buy my dream car and be having issues with it.
Many old phrases hang around because they are true. So....
If something seems too good to be true, it's because it is.
16 for sale within 500 miles of me, which what, 9000 built new in the last yr? I think they are all probably legitimate cars but then that's me giving them the benefit of doubt.
