Ebay Purchase...

Sugggestions: Long story short, guy has a car on ebay, edits the ad saying he'll take 17.5K for the vehicle...I had previously placed a bid at around 27K & still had not met the reserve. So I email the guy, sends me info on the vehicle & around this time I realize he's canceled the auction. Sounds like a good deal, but guy hasn't sent me his phone # and is willing to pay shipping. All of this on a decked out volvo xc90. I'm iffy to jump on it but he says if I want it, we can go through an ebay protection program so that we're both protected...

Any thoughts?

Don't do it! He is changing his mind too fast, sounds like he is saying what you want to hear then he will bail on the deal after he gets the money. Orrrrr....the car is not near as nice as it seems on the net.

TANSTAAFL. What's blue book on it? I'd be VERY wary of any deal that seems too good to be true...

Why move a vehicle that's for sale from Florida to Montana while you're trying to sell it? The only reason that I can think of is to convert a salvage title into a clean title. Many sleazeballs do this with cars that have been in floods, been dunked into salt water while trying to launch a boat, or totaled in a wreck and then rebuilt, etc.

I would stay away. There are some cons that troll ebay. That thing is moving around too much, cancelled auctions, wanting to circumvent Ebay, etc. Also his "Ebay Protection Program" is probably some scam in itself that he bought off of Ebay....LOL!!

Yea its for the wife. Decided to keep my Dmax but still need an suv to carry them around in. I hate driving the wifes beetle to work and hate putting more miles on the Dmax. If I had that kind of money cash I'd finish my blaZer and a half decent suv. We'll see what happens.

Yea. I've had good experience buying vehicles on ebay, but this one just doesn't seem right. also, I've already asked him for his # 3X and still nothing. Gonna pass and keep looking.

For sure that alot of money and I would do it threw ebay. But then again ebay does have is problems also. You gotta go check this sucker out if you really want it and take it for a ride. BIG TIME. Good Luck
