    Default For those who plan to buy a car

    Fello DR1 members,

    I have almost a month more left on my CarFax.com account.
    If you plan to buy a car that was imported from the US I'll be glad to run a check on it for free.
    I recently had a customer of mine who where going to buy a nice 2005 Volvo with only 31000 miles in it. When I run a check on the car we figured it had 97800! miles in the odometer when it was imported back in February!!!
    BE AWARE of this scam of used car dealers!
    If you want me to run a check on the car I'll need the correct VIN#.
    I can do this till the 15th of October.

    Exclamation used cars..... scrap

    Carfax is great. I used it in 2004 while shopping for a used car in Santiago and Puerta Plata, Moca, etc. After a couple months I gave up and bought a new car. I think used cars are way overpriced. For example, I found a beautiful Camery really beautiful car. When I checked Carfax I found it was wrecked in New Jersey, sold as salvage with a scrap title, went to Florida then ëxported to the Dominican Republic". The dealer wanted big bucks for that scrap.
    BE careful !!!!!!!!

    A very respectable and nobel gesture of good will and generocity! An example to follow.

    Can you check this little old pontiac please?

    make them come and see you in your shop to get the carfax check, not just giving it away online. then continue to run free carfax checks year round. this way it becomes a way to build relationships with potential customers. and its good for the potential customers since they get to meet you and see what you are like.

    Thank you TheHun!

    With God`s help hopefully I`ll be able to do something for you too. And also for free. And without a condition of coming to my shop for a sales pitch first.

    Why would you suggest something to inconvenience people?

    It sounds like TheHun is offering this because he is a nice guy, not to prop up sales.

    The Hun has helped me diagnose problems with my car via PM, and never asked for a dime. Surely if I lived in Santiago, I would drop by his shop.

    I think he will survive without your business advice.

    I don't go too often, maybe once in every 2-3 months.
    Next week I might need to go to Punta Cana to pick up a friend, so I'll pass through SD.
