Car: 2001 Subaru Legacy



so the girlfriend wants a bigger daiy driver, and I want something with AWD...so naturally we decide upon a Subaru Legacy wagon...something we can make a fairly even trade for the the Civic.

so there is one at autolist of canada...a 2001 with 93,000km...so we head on down today and go for a test drive...coming back from the test the brakes fail...and we nearly go through a red light...so the manager passes it off as the car sitting for a while.

then they ask to have my keys so they can take a quick look at my trade in...and they drive off with it with out me...

i talk to the manager and he says "what are you stupid...of course we are going to test your car"

to which i reply "you didnt ask me, and i would have liked to be there"

then I make him an offer, pending my mechanic looks at the car and gives it his approval...and they fix the brakes...end of deal...he wont let me take it to my mechanic, nor will he fix the brakes till i agree to buy the car.

so in short, a very bad experence...dont go there!

I've heard many stories like that.

From vehicles that's engines knock because the "rockers are cold" to vehicles trying to be sold that would never safety. Don't even have to get into the rustbuckets they buy, spray in 5 minutes and turn around and sell em to whoever the first sucker that walks in is.

The salespeople can talk some people into anything too, and lots of people get swindeled into some real bad financial deals.

yeh, a story that my dad told me: a couple was at a ford dealership getting a freestar and i guess they didnt think it was that expensive so they were really hesitant.. and i guess they didnt really have the cash to finance the new car purchase. also, their bargaining skillz were teh weaksauce (tongue.gif) and they wouldnt get the salesman to budge in his price.. the salesmen saw that he was almost losing the sale, so he said that if they bought the car now, he would throw in the first tank of gas free.. lol the funny part is the couple immediatly said ok and signed the papers. so, to conclude, the couple bought something they couldnt afford just for a $25 tank of gas that the dealership payed for, not out of the salesman's pocket. so yeh, forrest, salesmen can be insanely good swindelers

they tried 3 differnt sales people on me...and they did try some shit at first with the brakes he atcually said...and I quote

"when brakes are cold they sometimes dont work" to which i replied "that is bull shit, the ABS system didnt even come on...there is something wrong with the brakes"

and the back bumper was a differnet color than the rest of the car...

he made me fill out a sheet listing all of the work i have had done on my car in the last 6 months...when i asked for the sheet like this the previous owner of the Legacy had filled out he said...and i quote again

"we dont keep paper work on all of our cars" to which i replied "so you dont know anything about the previous service history...or acccident history of that car "NO!" This is after the sales-person informed me that the car had all of its services, and was completely up to date"

Damn, thats awful. I dunno if you guys have the BBB up there or not but here I'd be contacting them to investigate the dealership.

Personally I would never deal with these smaller used car lots. I'd go somewhere big like CarMax, etc where they actually inspect the cars before they sell them. They offer you a warranty on them and stuff which Im sure the dealer you were dealing with doesn't even know what that word means.

I almost always get what I want, and if you dont want to respect me after the deal is made thats fine, but i gaurentee i will be on the winning side of the bargain.
