For those that don't know, I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. I've been trying to sell it since I bought the Bonne. Last May I brought it to a small dealership after I was contacted by the owner. He said they would sell it for me for free, and they sell quite a few consignment cars.
Well I never got a phone call until last week that people were interested in it. Come to find out, they were only offering $8000!
I told the owner that I would not sell it for that. I owe $9600 and I don't have money to pay the difference. The car is worth $10,500, and has a 100,000 mile warranty (that he never advertised).
ANYWAY, I just took it back tonight because I am selling it on my own. When I dropped the car off exactly 8 months ago I had 43,100 miles.
The minute I got in the car tonight, I noticed it had 44,287!!!
Other things wrong:
-missing front floor mats (original, mint condition)
-broken/shattered ventshade on driver'* door (I bought them when I got the car)
-missing keys (original chip key)
-scratch, chipped paint on front bumper (not a huge deal, I can fix it)
So far that'* all I've found. I'm giving him a call shortly to solve the situation. I signed a form when I dropped the car off with him that stated he would be responsible for any damage while he had the car.
I can't do anything about the added miles. The only reason I was pissed about it was that I don't know how those miles were driven and if the car was beat on or not. And I know 1200 miles were not from test drives. The added miles average 38 miles a week since last May. When I opened the trunk tonight there were personal belongings in the trunk (items bought at a hardware store). So I know someone was using the car for personal errands.
There'* really nothing I can get straightened out besides the floor mats, keys, and hopefully money to buy new ventshades.
Sorry for the long-winded rant. I really wish I wasn't so calm and collected because I feel like tearing the guy a new *******.
