Nope. No Returnsies policy. $2900 for a 5 year old car? Have you checked the newspaper classified or dealership lots for an identical car or very close to the same year and compared the PRICE.? In your area car costs are different than my area, so you go by your area for the price?
I did a quick check and the asking price is $13,000.00 as is. Meaning it also may have problems.
Checked Auto Trader. Just the one. it is enough.
Boy, I want to be your mechanic if I can get $10,000.00 out of you for basically a 2 hour job.(or shorter)
Parts are a gasket and seals, maybe $25 combined.
The wheel alignment I go to a shop that specializes in alignments...maybe$100.
What am I to do with $9,750.00 in wages?
. You are making life very difficult for a mechanic. My wages would be about $50 because it took about an hour for the gasket change
. maybe $75 for the wheel alignment.
All this extra cash TO BURN. If your mechanic is charging you that, change mechanics. All of them will be cheaper.
I am not exaggerating, I am giving the numbers. A used car is used so there will be some issues. Most often than not TRIVIAL. Not worth noticing...unless you are really anal about them.
The car is cheap for another reason. Let a mechanic look it over and tell you what the issue is(if there is one and how much to fix) if there is anything to fix.
