Purchased As Not Purchased
After reading on here people complaining about back pain caused from uncomfortable seats, misaligned bumper(s) and #$%$ paint, and a poor sounding stereo, I'm left wanting to ask a question.
Common sense usually dictates doing things like test-driving the vehicle BEFORE buying it, and also looking over the vehicle you're about to purchase BEFORE taking delivery.
I can't help but think that a test drive would've revealed the 'painful' driver's seat and the #$%$ sounding stereo.
Taking a quick walk around the vehicle before you drove off the lot would've exposed the crooked bumper and heavy orange peel.
So my question is this:
Why didn't any of you three perform any of these seemingly VERY COMMON procedures, BEFORE you signed on the dotted line, AND DROVE OFF THE LOT with your $50,000 vehicle(s)?
Even if you didn't discover the shoddy paint or crooked bumper when you initially checked out the truck or test-drove it, you could have walked away from it had that been your choice, even AFTER signing the contract, as long as you didn't 'take delivery'- which is usually defined by driving the vehicle off the dealer's property after you've signed the purchase agreement.
Matter of fact, it's actually the buyer's RESPONSIBILITY to thoroughly check out the vehicle before driving away with it, and at the very least, making the dealer aware of any problems you find, and getting a repair agreement IN WRITING before you (again) 'take delivery'.
