So you just put out there that he's a thief...and you think this is OK???A guy I worked with bought a used bottom-level Taurus then proceeded to rent one every month so he could swap parts. They never noticed that the CD player was now just an AM/FM radio or that the alloy wheels were black steel with hubcaps. Etc....
I've worked with hundreds of guys all over the US. I dont think any division of law enforcement is clever enough to narrow down who it was. My point was that you may end up with a different vehicle than planned based on what renters have done to it.So you just put out there that he's a thief...and you think this is OK???
And the point was taken. That story was what pushed me over the edge from being very hesitant to no longer having any interest in the vehicle. You truly have even less an idea how a rental was treated than a used car from a lot (which is almost none). I’m ordering new.My point was that you may end up with a different vehicle than planned based on what renters have done to it.
Seems you want it too much; about 8 grand too much. A modestly equipped 2 door rental, 30 grand? Offer 21k, stand your ground; leave; they'll call you. Then, show 'em 22k. Walk away again. You can order a new one like that for $34k without any back bone whatsoever. I had a JLR on order for 38k a year ago, then the build sheet changed by one month. I didn't like what the factory pulled, cancelled and bought very used and very built for 1/3 the cost without regrets. Today's dealers take millennial soft heads for granted. Don't be one.But it could probably be had out the door for around 30K,
