This auction? Private sales always make me nervous. What was wrong with it?

What special knowledge do you have, pray tell?

We can all learn from the experience whether we bought this particular car or not.

do a search under c43 and you should find my screename. You will find some of the problems i encountered. I just feel that it would suck if somone here bought that car and though it was as nice as the pics. Carfax does not report everything, especially not all accidents

What is the deal with the cryptic warnings about this car?

If you have specific knowledge, post it! If not, it's nothing more than rumor-mongering.

I searched and found your thread(s). The problems seemed pretty typical. I don't think anything illegal took place unless you have additional info you did not post. I never saw any mention of hidden accident history, so I'm not sure what the gripe is with Carfax. Carfax won't disclose brake and suspension issues, transmission issues, etc. Most of those issues could have been discovered with a thorough PPI.

lights removed from the dash prior to sale: ABS, AIRBAG, ESP, Check engine. Car was towed by A Arms and were bent (they could not do an alignment on the car. New tires so could not tell from wear) Drivers side rear was hit. Paint is bubling a bit under the light and when you look behind you can see it crushed. The rear stabilized bar link is missing, Only one key not like 2 in the picture, no owners manual, spare tire is a 15 inch not 17 AMG. It will not fit on the front wheel because of the brake size. Weird transmission problem that the dealer prob did not know about. Wheels look nice but the front passenger is out of round.

I guess if you got it for 12k it gives you some room to put money into it

This statement from the auction is enough reason for me to not want to make the purchase unless I inspected it for myself first...
Quote:
AS IS - NO WARRANTY


This vehicle is being sold as is, where is with no warranty, expressed written or implied. The seller shall not be responsible for the correct description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein, and makes no warranty in connection therewith. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, imperfection, defect or damage. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have thoroughly inspected the vehicle, and to have satisfied himself or herself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgement solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with this vehicle at the buyer's request prior to the close of sale. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any oral statements about the vehicle.
Why not disclose any known defects in the auction description?
