Agreed. Also, when the seller tries to hype up a fact about the car that's actually completely wrong. See: Lexus dealer who tried to sell me on the fact that an MR2 is a FWD car, and the Jaguar XJR ad that touts its "turbocharged V6".I could find my favorite car online and I'd walk away if the ad was full of bad spelling mistakes.
I saw a GMC sonoma with "sanoma" stickers on the side one time. I can't imagine how improperly that truck must have been treated.
+1 definitely a problem, I like having a low position with stretched out limbs, tall seating position doesn't work for me.Seating position. As cool as the Fiesta and the new Focus are, holy crap, those are awkward cars for me to sit in for some reason.
That's rarely the case, aftermarket wheels are a fairly popular mod for "regular" people who really just want a car to look nice and be comfortable. Most abused cars I know look 100% stock.When looking through ads on second hand cars, I tend to quickly dismiss any cars with after-market wheels on them. Any sort of after-market bits and pieces on a car tends to put me off as I get the feeling that these cars were abused the most.
Really? Who would of thunk it?RARE = 1 of few that were built in Europe
I think the reason a tow bar equipped car is off the table for him is due to the additional stress on components that occurs when one is towing something.Tow bars can always be removed.
Anyway, on topic:
One SL (and Ion due to customer demand) advantage: you can tow one behind something on all 4 wheels without fear of transaxle damage.There are also tow bars for cars to be towed - usually by an RV.
Towing a car with all 4 wheels on the ground can do quite a bit of damage to the driveline - especially in cars with a transaxle.
Yup, $800 for a pretty good Series III because the dealer selling it couldn't be bothered to spell Jaguar properly. And they were adamant about it being spelled Jagar. It was even listed on eBay as Brand:Other rather than under Jaguar.IIRC, Spectre got an amazing deal on his oldest Jaaaaaggggg, because the idiot selling it made spelling mistakes that made the car difficult to find on whatever website it was on. So in a sense, you might get a good deal if the seller obviously doesn't know what the hell they're selling or anything about it.
Many 80s and some 90s cars came from the factory with a detachable faceplate, and dealers are known to stick different wheels on new cars on the lot.Removable faceplate on the radio, aftermarket wheels, loud exhaust
