some one tell me how to give rep points... i dont want to sound prejudist but with all the things this girl was pointing out about the car i could have bet my life that this was an older guy... if i could I would give you +2 due to i never seen a girl do this much research on a vehicle before she bought it. Glad to see that the lady Zs are steping up and telling the dealers that they deserve the same respect as a stereotypical male buyer.. goo girl

This is the type information I found useful on the NSX board. I was on the wrong end of a deal on one of the first twin turbo Mazda's. The dealer put delivery off until late in the day when the repair was less noticeable. Washed and waxed the car the next day and found repairs on both doors.

Someone had apparently tried to wetsand it or something but it looked ridiculous. Bunch of gray marks on a black car.

Anyway, I rejected the car, regardless of how good they could make it look, due to diminished value and potential long term clearcoat failure. Figured I'd post the VIN to try and protect anyone trying to buy it... JN1AZ44E09M402164.
Hah! I just test drove that car not 2 weeks ago IF that! They wont stop calling me on this car! I dont think it had the damage on it when I drove it though, thats for sure - I bet some idiot test drove it and jacked it all up. Pity, really...

And, small edit - I just noticed it looks like you probably test drove this a couple weeks before me. I think they had this fixed, by now, because the car looked fine when I test drove it. On the other hand, I didnt exactly stare the exterior down, since I just wanted to take it for a spin and see how nice the rev-matching system was, along with its handling. Either way though, good post - if I go back there again and they beg me to buy it, I'll give it a REALLY good look.

I used to work at the highest volume GM dealership in the US. Oh, the stories I could say.

My favorite? As I was pulling in a brand new, COMPLETELY stripped base model Venture into the detailing shop? One of the detailers closed the garage door on the roof of the van. Cleaned it off to find a dent spanning the entire width of the roof, and about 2-3 feet long with deep gouges in the paint.

They sold that van to the customers later that day without even thinking twice. I was so angry, and I couldn't do a thing about it. Worst part was, they barely had enough money for this thing, and it was their first "new" car ever. What a way to ruin it

Oh, this thing was STRIPPED man, not a single options on it. Not even FLOOR mats! Definitely no roof racks on this thing.

The new owners were REALLY short (like, 5'6" or something) - both of them. They never even saw it, and were just so happy to get the van that they didnt even care to look. And who jumps up into the van when they pick it up, and checks out the roof? heh

Me, when go pick up a vehicle, I go over it with a fine tooth comb. Dealers love delivering cars at night in unlit areas, I prefer to say I want to pick my vehicle up around noon-ish, just for this reason...

Gotta be extra careful in those situations. Bringing a flashlight and some polarized sun glasses helps a lot

I certainly get the flashlight, and I own polarized glasses, but I don't quite get the combination. You're looking for gradient changes in the reflection that would be from repair jobs, right? Not sure where polarization would help. Excess glare from other surfaces?

They tend to be good at picking up scratches and whatnot, particularly on darker colors. Lighter, not so much.

My mom had purchased a brand new 73' British racing green Jag XKE V12 convertible. It was delivered to the dealership, she picked it up drove it home and had no problems for two weeks until my dad drove it.

When he was out and about a guy rear ended him and the entire right rear quarter panel of the car crumbled on to the ground.

Come to find out after reports were filed and inspections done that the car had fallen of the truck during transport and they sent it to a body shop where they added more bondo than you could believe as well as a new paint job.

She was issued an entirely new Jag.

Gotcha. Have to try it on the pony. She's got two door nicks (that I know of) I could try it out on.

Something to keep in mind, a number of states (I know of it at least in TX) have 'lemon laws.' This basically protects the buyer from having to do anything to fix a new car, and protect against abuse of warranty and 'half-***' repairs. The pony had a bad fuel system vacuum check, and the law said it could only go in for 3 checks under the warranty, if the problem persisted the car had to be replaced by the dealer. So at the 3rd or 4th engine check light, look into you're local laws. This can be helpful if you're dealer/service keeps telling you the car is 'fine.'
