New(er) car

Rate this Entry
Tried to buy a new(er) car this past week. Gave the dealership a deposit only to have them call me back two days later to tell me that they sent one of their monkeys out to get it detailed and he smashed it up by REAR ENDING someone.

There is absolutely no excuse for rear ending someone. I hope to hell they fire his stupid ass.

I told them if they can fix it, I'm still interested.

Here's a link to the listing

I saved a couple of the photos so when it goes away, I'll replace the link with some of the photos.

    Also, Bill, accidents happen, and while I agree with you that most rear ends are the result of poor driving, you just never know. For example, one time, the brakes went out on my 93 ranger, coincidentally right at the only red light in town. Now, someone could have been in front of me, but they weren't. I limped it home in low gear an back alleys.

    Well I suppose accidents happen but these days, odds are the guy was playing with his toy phone....

    The car was absolutely beautiful with only around 50K miles.

    I found another one in Kansas, a 2008 instead of the 2006 that was right outside of Chicago. George told me he'd check it out for me if need be. This one has 120K on it, the pictures look just as good as the Chicago one and it was $1,000.00 less for a car that's two years newer so who knows, maybe it all worked out for the best.

    I was kinda looking forward to keeping the "series" ( xxx6, xxx6, xxx6) going since the one in my avatar is a 1986 XJ6 and I also have a 1996 XJ6 VDP. This 2008 X-Type is for my wife.

    I supposedly bought the one in Kansas but until I actually see it in my yard, I'm not counting my chickens yet.....

    Jamie said he'd help me out if the Kansas City area dealership needs uh, a little "help" or "encouragement"...

    Thanks Jamie and George!

    Car arrived on 5/17, exactly ten years to the day that I bought the 1996 XJ6 in Virginia. Looks and runs great! Only two owners, first owner purchased the car near St. Louis and the second owner was from a tiny town about 45 minutes northeast of Kansas City. I'll try to post some photos in the near future.
