inoperable. This wasn't mentioned in the Ebay add nor during any conversations previously and I had a conversation with the seller less than 2 hours before arriving to pick up the vehicle.
Upon further examination of the vehicle I found the following items not mentioned in the Ebay add that were damaged on the vehicle (1) The exhaust pipe was missing. Approximately 5-6 feet was broken off at the muffler.
(2) The rear window fell down inside the car as I was inspecting the vehicle.
(3) The under carrige had been sprayed extensively with a rubber coating to cover up the extensive rust on the frame, axles, brake assemblies, exhaust components, various frame brackets, and main sub frame of the vehicle. The seller indicated the vehicle was bought thru an auction, and they didn't know wnaything about the under coat spray. I have worked on cars for 30+ years and this spray was very fresh and new and was applied within the past 30 days.
(4) The vehicle had no tire change-jacks, tire lowering ratchets, etc. anywhere inside the vehicle. I discovered this upon
further inspections of the vehicle. The seller never mentioned this during phone calls, in the Ebay add, or during my initial inspection
(5) The rims had locking lug nuts but the seller didn't have a key to remove them.
Again NONE of this information was explained in the add or during any of the 5 conversations I had with the seller before bidding/purchasing the vehicle.
The seller indicated they would reinburse me for my deposit, however since I felt it wasn't wise to complete the entire transaction on this vehicle, I had to spend my own money to buy return airline tickets back home, pay for a hotel as I couldn't get a flight back on the same day, all due to the fact this vehicle wasn't explained to have these defects before bidding took place, or after I had won the bid. I live 1000 miles away from the seller and was required to pickup the vehicle or I would incurr daily charges for storage fees on the vehicle. I spent $643.00 out of my own pocket after the seller took me back to the airport within 2 hours after inspecting the vehicle as I couldn't get a flight back home and had to get a hotel and rental car until I could get a flight back home on Monday 07/16/12. Had I been informed of these issues I would have never bid on the vehicle.
Due to the extensive rust issues I was informed by a ASE certified mechanic this vehile would have been unsafe to drive back to my home. I was also told that since the exhaust was exiting directly onto the rear end axle area, there was a
strong possiblity the rear end oils would have overheated and subquently overheated and damaged the rear end axle assembly of the vehicle. I fell I should be reinbursed for my trip back home and costs incurred due to me not
being able to drive this vehicle home as previously planned.
