this customer got screwed

Post by dynchel on Tue Sep 30, 2014 11:20 am

We have a '98 dodge Dakota in the shop that the customer just bought.  They wanted to make sure it is safe.


Gas tank has a ratchet strap holding up the rear, and a bungy cord holding up the front.

Its a little blurry but someone "rigged up" the o2 sensor.  The clutch fan is seized, and it has obvious spray foam for body work that's been painted over.  Oh its a 3.9 v6 with 200,000 miles.  $1200.00 from someone they know...

Some friend.  That's a shame, I hope Karma get's the seller.  Never lend/borrow to/from friends & family.  LOL  Nothing but trouble come of it.  You take someone for their word & end up getting the short end.

I don't know what it is these days though-people really do need to crawl under, poke, prod, test drive, etc. a used car.  No one deserves to get screwed but by the same token take the damn thing to your mechanic and have them look it over before you dish out your hard earned $$ & end up getting screwed.  Like Ronny Reagan once said: "Trust but verify!"

Just saw a Jeep Liberty on the highway that the gas tank fell out of. It had a ratchet strap hanging under there too. Sounds like a turd. Write off the 1200 bucks and dump it.

a set of actual fuel tank straps wouldn't have cost much. If the owner skimped on those there is no telling what other nightmares exist in the unseen parts of that vehicle.
