He wanted to trade in his old car and buy a used car. He went in, was offered a fair price for his trade-in, and got a fair price for the used car he purchased. Everything seemed to have worked out well, and was very easy.

Then the problems started. The next morning, there was a noticeable oil leak under the used car he had just purchased. It was obviously leaking oil. He took it back to the dealership, asking that it be repaired, since he had just bought it the day before. The Bayside Motors owner offered to have his mechanic check out the car and get back to my friend.

Later that day, my friend received a call from the owner of Bayside Motors, explaining the problems with the car. The owner said that the main front seals were leaking. He offered to pay for the repair of the main front seals and return the car to my friend. Sounds good, right? Well, my friend went to talk to the mechanic directly, and the mechanic gave an honest assessment of the car: the front seal leak had let oil leak into the timing belt chamber, requiring replacement of the timing belt and chamber as well; the front bearings were bad; valve cover gasket showed seepage. The valve cover gasket repair did not need immediate repair, but it was a time-bomb waiting to happen. Sooner or later, the gasket would blow or would leak, requiring repair. Cost of this entire repair, which the mechanic said was required to bring the car to good condition, was estimated to be over $2000.

My friend went back to the owner, and the owner would not pay for all these repairs - which his own mechanic had said were required! The owner claimed that there would be no profit in selling the car at that point, so he wasn't interested. My friend was not having this, so he demanded his car back and to return the car he had bought, effectively cancelling the whole deal. Owner was fair, and allowed cancellation of the deal.

As my friend was leaving the lot, the owner moved the car my friend HAD JUST RETURNED and put the "For Sale" sign back on it, without doing any repairs. Not even the main front seals had been fixed (it had been only a few minutes), let alone the extensive repairs his own mechanic had said were required.

My friend recommends anyone buying a car from this dealership have this car thoroughly checked out before committing to the purchase.
