Have Vehicle checked by a neutral professional
I was searching for the perfect pre-owned vehicle when I saw it on ebay. Sure enough I contacted Frank from Century Motors and asked many questions including air conditioning, stereo, Tires, Body, etc. He said this car was older but in mint condition he had a mechanic check everything, worked on it and put new tires on it, had been garaged its whole life, air conditioning worked, had premium bose sound, new tires, perfect interior and should last at least ten years. I purchased vehicle ABOVE BOOK VALUE since it was supposed to be the best out there and had it shipped to me. The first thing I noticed was about 15 dents and dings not noticeable in pictures. Next I got in and noticed a crack in the dash and cracks in the top of the back seats(leather) no doubt from sun damage(not garaged). I took it for a ride turned on the a/c and it didn't work. Turned on the radio to find only two rear speakers worked and they were not Bose, they were crackling and already blown. Pulled up to my house to check it out when I smelled anti-freeze. At this point I called Frank and he told me his mechanic flushed it and this was just left over. The next day anti-freeze was on the ground had to go to a mechanic to replace water pump, old cracked belts and broken plastic casing around the belt. Also at this point noticed a power steering leak. Next I noticed the passenger door doesn't lock, had to replace that to protect the stereo I had to buy. Ten Months in and 9,000 miles later I walk out to my car and see a flat tire, put the spare on and inspected the tire to find a tear with belts everywhere also known as a blowout. Went to tire shop and they confirmed a blowout and that these tires weren't new 9,000 miles ago which was obvious but I didn't want to be picky. The last thing is the one key they sent me is some sort of spare key that cannot be duplicated and I have to have a specialist to mold ignition and make a new one, which is beyond they're control but they never told me there was no spare/original key. This being said don't believe that they only sell the best pre-owned vehicles, just the same or worse run around you will get from any used car dealer but for more money. When I first called Century they seemed like a great family owned customer orientated dealership I was going to refer family members in Florida to, But they are either to busy or shady to disclose important information to customers. So please double or triple check with a pro and don't believe these people especially on ebay. I hope this helps you
