WARNING -Potential Money Pit Empty
PostSubject: WARNING -Potential Money Pit   WARNING -Potential Money Pit EmptyTue 29 Jan - 8:04

I don't care if you have a naming and shaming policy, I hope you haven't.

I went to aspect cars in Sunderland on Saturday to view the car in the attached link, it was advertised at under £4500. When I got there I was told that the car had a deposit on it already (had only been advertised on the Friday night). Anyway I had a good look around the car while they garage looked at mine.

They offered my that car for £500 plus my car, which I was going to go ahead with, until the following was viewed;
Rust bubbles (quite bad) above the front window, would require window out and re-spray to prevent any further damage, still no guarantee there tho.
The front chassis member under the bonnet, where the rad is attached, rusted really badly, possibly to the point where it would need cut out and replaced to repair it.
The boot lid under the spoiler was corroding pretty bad, a new boot lid or a very skilled repair would be required.
The Boot was stinking of damp, would require new carpets at the very minimum.

At this point I decided (bear in mind I'm desperate to get back into a scooby) to walk from the deal, there was just too much work required, then I hadn't even had a look under the car to see inf the chassis/sills were corroding, which they no doubt were judging by the rest of the car.

Now, the people who bought the car have just advertised it for another £2000 and not even bothered to use their own photographs, the pics are still in front of Aspect Motors.

If this car was anything to go by, I'd never touch Jus Sports with a huge fecking barge pole. Just a warning to you potential buyers out there.

Brilliant, now I'm being abused by email as he knows he's been outed. Also reported him to Pistonheads. Might contact trading standards too. I think I'll actually invest a little bit of time into this as I've not got much else to do Laughing

I would of bought it 47K on the clock !!
Did it have history with it to verify the mileage ??
You probably could of got it for £4000 cash and the bodywork could of been sorted out for under £1500 easy..
Worth about what jus sports are asking for it now with the bodywork sorted out maybe a bit more with that kind of mileage on the clock.......

Yeah but they haven't sorted the bodywork out, unless they're miracle workers, they only bought it on Saturday/Sunday. They're just selling it straight on, apparently has a buyer for it.

Plus, fook knows what the underside of the car was like. No way is it worth that sort of money in its condition. There are dozens out there at £5k-£6k. Yes it had history, not sure what, I certainly wasn't goin to be the one taking the risk on that POS. And definitely not at the price they have it now, I hope whoever has a deposit on it actually views it with their eyes open.

Anyway, I'm not complaining about the car, the car is in the state it is, I didn't want it as it was, what I do have issues with is the new seller trying to Rob people, especially after the emails I've had off them, as he seems pretty pleased with himself that he's making £2000 profit from a car that is worth nowhere near that as it stands, yet selling it as a great example of a car. So god knows what the rest of the stock is like.
