eBay Car Buyers Must Do More Research Before Bidding
Take a look at this 2010 GMC TERRAIN SL 3.0L 6 VIN: 2CTFLGEY6A6349475 being auctioned off on eBay by Clearwater Florida used car dealer (eBay User ID: “flautomall” a/k/a Florida Cars http://flautopark.com/) who has been the subject of prior stories posted on the MannerLaw Blog.
The pictures on the internet look good, and the dealer has a link on the auction page for an Autocheck vehicle history report, so it seems legit. Except that when you click on the link provided to the Autocheck report, it takes you to the dealer’s website and shows you a report for a different vehicle… a 2012 Nissan Altima S VIN: 1N4AL2AP3CC123450.
Well… this could just be an honest mistake linking to the wrong Autocheck report… but even so… the Nissan looks like a train wreck to me, even though it’s got a “Clean Carfax”
Here are the pictures “BEFORE” the 2010 GMC TERRAIN SL 3.0L 6 VIN: 2CTFLGEY6A6349475 was auctioned off after a “disabling” collision and the “AFTER” pictures when it has been repaired and is being offered for sale with a clean title, and an excerpt from its true Autocheck report.
You be the judge…
