When I went to buy my first car years ago, we showed up a little used car lot in ATL, salesman walks out, and lo and behold, he only has one arm. I'm not the kind of person to make fun of someone like that or treat him any different, so we continued looking at the car. We take it for a drive, I like it. When we get back he pops the hood, struggles to get it open. Once open, he points at the fender bolts saying "you can see here and here that the bolts or still fully painted and you can tell the car has never been repaired, blah blah blah" well as he's pointing this out I have a closer look and guess what? There are a bunch of scratches on the bolts and elsewhere in the engine bay. It's pretty damn obvious that some repair work has gone on in there. For a car that was only 3 yrs old, ya I'll pass. Not to mention they were asking way too much....
Places like that give a bad name to small family owned businesses.
