Facepalm
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:45:39 PM »
We are selling our 2005 Scion tC. Asking price is around $6k. Some guy came to test drive it today and drove up in his big, new Mercedes SUV. He liked it enough that he said he would be back tomorrow with cash to make an offer on the car after he went to the credit union to borrow the money.

I don't have any words left after hearing that.

Sounds like he's adding to his fleet instead of downsizing?

Makes perfect sense. Advice I've heard from dealership finance personnel: Flashy vehicles have a higher percentage of lessees compared to the ordinary sedan. Not verified, but when I know people who lease luxury cars and SUVs and live beyond their means in an age of cheap credit, shit will hit the fan. Short term gain for long term pain.

Or he wants the Scion as a daily driver, for his significant other, for a kid, etc. Maybe it is a fašade ...

So, what happened?

Didn't hear from that guy again and sold it to some other dudes who showed up with cash. It definitely is an odd feeling walking down the street to the bank with $6k in cash in your purse!
