as is means as is. not my job to tell them the car's life story especially a story that happened before i purchased the car. i wont try to rip people off. i will quote them a price, if they think its fair then they can take it or leave it.
No, it doesn't. If there are significant things wrong, like non-functioning air bags and warped frame, and you don't disclose this when selling a car, it could result in legal action against you. And you'd lose. Think how sweet it would be if you sold the car, they had an accident, and died because there were no airbags. You get sued, you're screwed.

But, by all means. Please, try to be a crook and sell the car for the book valueof a car that doesn't have any of these issues.The car your selling isn't the car listed in the book. It's a car with significant problems that are costly to fix. That's not honest. If you're good with being a liar and a thief, go ahead.

Its not dishonest for a private seller to sell their car as is. Maybe in whatever socialist utopia you live in you have to inform the buyer what previous owners of the car might have done to it but here in the US its perfectly reputable to price a car how you want and tell the buyer how you cared for it. As far as onoes is concerned his car was garage kept and had a recent service. Also mentioning the airbag light is fine

That is correct. Sell the car as is. When they ask you if there is anything wrong with it, and you say no, that's where the trouble starts.

Yeah, I got it. Relax.

Seriously Tanoomba, how did you end up on this board? Were you a lurker or different poster on FoH? How did you stumble into this place?
Introduced by a lurker friend during the FOH days. I think he found it because he played Warrior Worldcraft or some such nonsense.

now you are just putting words in my mouth. guy can ask whats wrong with it. i can tell him my mechanic had a look at it and there were some minor issues, but the car is good to go now as long as you dont enter it in any drag races.

If you were asked, would you say "non functioning air bags and a warped frame," or would you find a better way to phrase it?

My father worked as a used car sales man for almost 40 years. He would have found you and kicked your ass if you did what you're saying. You are the reason used car sales men have bad reputations. He is the reason people continue to buy used cars.

I'm glad you're comfortable with yourself. It appears quite a few others don't think much of you. Does that ever make you pause and think?

And now I'm all done with this conversation. Have a good day!

I'm totally relaxed.

So now that you've confirmed that's how it is here, what's your plan?
No plan. I'll just feel a greater sense of contentment the next time some troglodyte posts something beyond asinine, then gets pants-shittingly offended when he is called out on his behavior.

Lol. Good day to you too!
Seriously get over yourself. Its perfectly legit to sell a car as is privately. I was just kidding about being a used car salesmen. Thats what this
tongue.png
means. Sell the car any way you want. I have sold 3 cars privately in my life. All for what i paid for or more. Did i rip anyone off? Nope all my cars i have kept and drove for at least 3 years and had them serviced and repaired regularly. I like old cars so after 20 or so years they retain their values.

Just going to reiterate again: Having Tanoomba on ignore makes reading the General forum so much more relaxing.

Its like those old summer's breeze commercials, fresh and crisp and full of life.
