How often have you been to look at an advertised car (156 in my case) described as "Excellent" "Immaculate" "Like New" or "Superb" - usually inside and out...
Only to be sadly disappointed?
It would seem that traders in particular don't know how to accurately describe the condition of a car. Or maybe I expect too much?
Is it fair to assume that paying less than £1500 for a car and expecting it to be fit for use is over-optimistic?
I guess nobody is going to emphasise a cars 'faults' but last week I travelled 70 miles to look at a 156 described as "well cared for" The fact that it needed bushes all round, had a crusty blue/green rad and had a cam belt break that caused the engine too rattle horribly over 3000rpm wasnt mentioned in the advert
Waste of my time and petrol.
What do you think?
