I have the whole conversation with the salesman recorded in my head for the last car I bought. Everything he said as a positive, I learned after the fact was not.
"It's in such great condition we didn't even paint the bumpers, we usually paint the bumpers on all of them." The rear bumper has a huge gouge and a good bit of road rash in it and some REALLY shitty touch up paint that looks like a blind person put it on.
"Ah yea, there's wear right there but 'brand' will replace all of it once you register the car, even the parts that aren't worn" Yea, no. I had to basically beg the new dealer to change the parts that were absolutely worn.
"Complete functional test..." Yea the knobs 'worked' but they are sticky as hell - the new dealer said they would charge to diagnose the problem and see if it's under warranty. BS, it's part of the CPO frickers...
Anyway, I replayed it a hundred times in my head and I can't find one honest thing he said.
ETA: I flew 1400 miles to get the car "in perfect condition" so I was in no mood to nit pick the details. Details like the headliner looked like a construction worker used it to clean his hands with. Took countless hours to get the car to the condition I should have bought it in. Oh well.
