Anyone, including private sellers can get a good rating if the sold vehicle functions normally and as expected, but how do they respond if the vehicle is delivered non- drivable, in limp mode?
I purchased a Porsche sedan via online sale, sight unseen, based on trust that vehicle functioned well with all electronics working normally and as listed on the original sticker when brand new with all of the originally purchased options that was disabled from the moment of delivery and subsequently was intermittently disabled, in limp mode in subsequent days. It was reported to the seller in 20 minutes from the moment of delivery. Additionally, multiple other electronics weren’t functioning and it was missing the rear window wiper. TheY agreed to make it right. They believed it needed a new battery and paid for it but that did not resolve the disabled functioning. They told me to take it to a Porsche dealership which I did as soon as I was able which is 85 miles from my home. They spoke to the Porsche dealership and were informed of the needed repairs and said they would cover the costs, $1561. but then refused and now will not reimburse me or address the other electronic options.
The Porsche dealership spoke with Michael Berg and told them they would repair the mechanical issue but that the other electrical issues would have to be discussed with me. He never returned phone calls or text messages to me to get it fixed and now will not reimburse me for that repair or address the other issues.
They simply can not be trusted and highly recommend resisting the desire to purchase your dream car just because it is in their inventory. You will be better served exercising patience and waiting until you can find a similar vehicle from a reputable dealership.
