There were several red flags that should have scared me off before I made the 4 hour drive to Auburn Chevrolet, however I was blinded by the thought of a new (to me) car. So, This whole debacle started when I expressed interest online, in a 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring. I immediately received a phone call from Fred Dearing. Had a discussion about price, Fred assures me there is "wiggle room" in the asking price, he offers up that they would be able to come down at least $500. I expressed frustration with 2 car deals falling through previously because the sellers sold the car out from under me, Fred assures me that "they would never do that"... Well the very next day, Fred calls me to say that the car was already sold.. YET HE STILL RAN MY CREDIT.... End of story right.. Nope, a couple days later, apparently that deal "fell through".. Yay (nope). So, I decide to make the trek from Kennewick to Auburn to buy this car, Fred tells me he is going to have them "clean the car up real nice", detail and whatnot... So, I see the car for the first time, the paint looks like crap, they definitely didn't wax it, literally looks like they maybe drove it through a car wash, there was excessive dirt in the nooks and crannies. But no big deal right, nothing another "real" detail couldn't fix. But wait!! There's more. The interior of the car SMELLS... Literally stinks like a wet dog was still in there. Almost he entire back of the seats in the trunk/cargo area had been torn up by dogs, how do I know this (aside from the dog smell), well the back is still COVERED in dog hair.. It gets better though!!! Both front leather seats had small punctures and scratches, there were scratches on the doors, and deep cuts in the padded armrest of the console. All this being said, I am still willing to go forward with the deal. RUNS MY CREDIT AGAIN, now it's been more than a week from the first time, so now this is going to ding my credit score twice... We do the little negotiation "dance", even with all the damage to the car, they won't come down ANY off the asking price. Mind you it was at the bottom of the bluebook scale.. But I drove up there on the word of Fred Dearing, (and obviously he didn't tell me about all the damage to the car), with the understanding that they would be a little flexible on the price... Honestly they thought that I wouldn't drive home without that car over $500.. They were wrong, and I am glad, I know I would have been pissed at myself for overpaying for a stinky, scratched up car.
