    Howdy all,

    had a fun experience with a dealership located in NJ today...figured you might want to hear this one, so you know to STAY AWAY from it.

    a little backstory: figured you all could use a nice little story from an encounter I had with a car dealership earlier today.
    A little backstory...
    Sold my Miata recently, and am looking for a new car. I owned an 86 MR2 before, and kinda missed it, so I've been looking at them as well as some SW20's.
    I found this craigslist ad: 1986 toyota mr2
    I figured it was a good deal. contacted the dealer and this is what they had to say:
    90k original miles. perfect body and interior. 2195 down, 4975 total asking price. mulled it around a little bit, and asked them to send me some higher quality pics. what follows is the pics and following email texts that we sent to each other...(NOTE: pay close attention to how the engine bay looks...does that look like an engine with 90k miles?)

    and my final response:

    so yea, that's my fun time I had with a NJ Dealership.
    DO NOT go to:
    Atlantic City Auto Sales
    7040 Black Horse Pike, Pleasantville, NJ 08232.

    Also, fun fact: this is the OWNER of the dealership I was talking to. Thoughts?

    hahaha I told him about posting the emails online and reporting him to the better business bureau, and he said he'll be on the lookout for my "threats" and if he sees anything defamatory he'll sue me for libel.

    lol!

    Unless you run a newspaper it wouldn't be libel or other published work. Guess he's as much a lawyer as he is a salesman.

    This guys a douche thank God you didn't fall for his douchebaggery or you would have been the one getting screwed. Damn that engine looks like its about to fall out of the engine compartment or even worse you'll need to have everything pulled out and the corrosion squared away to have a halfway decent car.

    Maybe he isn't a car dealer, but a starship captain from the 23rd century! :D 

    Edit: Actually, that would explain why he didn't realize that a '86 MR2 in crappy condition ISN'T worth $5,000!

    Honestly, I wouldn't even have argued with the guy after getting that 1st response. I'd have just moved along with my car hunting & labled him (and by extension his establishment) a lost cause.

    another fun factoid. go to his website, and look at the inventory.
    not only are there no cars listed, there's something interesting in the SUV section.
    maybe someone should call him about it and request a test drive?

    LOL
