Mario: Do you want to go with me To test drive a car I’m thinking of buying?
Danica: Sure. Which Dealership are we going to?
Mario: I’m not buying a used car from a dealership. I’m buying it from a Private party. Dealerships Rip you off.
Danica: Are you sure about that? My sister bought a Certified used car from a dealership and she even got a one-year Warranty. She’s very happy with it.
Mario: Dealerships Jack up the price. Buying from a private party means getting a better deal.
Danica: If you say so. What kind of car is it, and how much is the owner asking for it?
Mario: It’s a McQ Racer and the owner is asking $12,000, $3,000 below Blue book value.
Danica: That is a good price. In fact, that’s too good a price. Doesn’t that Raise some red flags?
Mario: Like what?
Danica: Well, the car could be have been Totaled and is now considered Salvage. Its Odometer could have been Rolled back. It could have major Mechanical problems…
Mario: You can be skeptical, but I’m not Looking a gift horse in the mouth. If this guy wants to sell his car for much less than its value, who am I to ask questions?
Danica: You’ll do a Title search and ask to see the Pink slip before you buy it, right?
Mario: I think you’d better stay here. With you along, I see this great deal Going up in smoke!
