    La macchina veniva segnalata come non incidentata, ho fatto 500 km per andarla a prendere e mi sono trovato la sorpresa, tamponata e incidentata nella parte anteriore del telaio, non sicura

    Siamo davvero dispiaciuti per l'incomprensione, ma quello che ha evidenziato fa parte del normale utilizzo di una vettura da 168500 Km. Nella descrizione si intendeva che la macchina non ha subito incidenti di una certa importanza. Infatti puntoni, parafanghi e traverse portanti sono ancora TUTTI originali, con le saldature e masticiature di fabbrica, MAI sostituiti e controllati a Laser su banco Dima di riscontro anche dopo la sua segnalazione! E revisione in regola! Se lei cercava una macchina garage queen come mai fa' offerte su auto con 168500 Km??? Inoltre bastava chiedere foto precise prima di vincere l'asta, o altre informazioni o visionare l'auto di persona durante i 14 giorni, o anche solo visionare tutta la nostra gallery con 200 foto incluso ogni lamierato! Abbiamo comunque annullato subito nella giornata l'acquisto e sbloccato il prezzo (3000euro) e ci siamo anche offerti di ripagare le spese di viaggio che ha sostenuto!!!!! E nonostante questo feed negativo!! Non bastava dire "ci ho ripensato non voglio più l'auto?!" Speriamo di soddisfarla con un'altra auto, restiamo a sua disposizione.
