I recently had the misfortune of selling my car to someone who thought they could get a better deal by nitpicking its flaws and I wanted to share my experience with others so no one else has to go through the same experience.
I had my car for sale for a few weeks when I decided to accept an offer from a potential buyer.
The price was good and the buyer seemed trustworthy, so I thought I was getting a good deal. Little did I know that the buyer had other plans in mind.
The buyer came over with a mechanic to inspect the car. Everything went fine until he started finding minor faults with the car. He claimed that the brakes were not working properly and the engine was making strange sounds.
Then he said that the car had a few scratches and the paint job was not up to the standards.
At first, I laughed because I knew he was trying to get a better deal from me. I tried to explain to him that the car was in good condition. But he insisted that he needed a discount. He was adamant about his demands and I felt like I had no choice but to agree.
I was already feeling frustrated and angry when the buyer then started bargaining for a much lower price. The price he had offered me was now 10% off the original amount. I was so angry and frustrated that I just wanted to get it over with. So, I agreed and sold the car to him.
After the deal was over, I felt like I had been taken advantage of. I had trusted the buyer and thought I was getting a good deal. But in reality, I had been ripped off. I should have been more careful and done my research before agreeing to the sale.
It is also important to be firm and not let them take advantage of you.
No one wants to be taken advantage of, especially when it comes to selling a car. So, if you ever find yourself in a similar situation, make sure you know what you are doing and don’t let anyone take advantage of you.
