Yes that's the car I'm talking about. I talked to a person from the company and he assures me it's a 9 out of 10. He already checked it out while I was on the phone to him and he was with the vehicle. I asked him to check this and that and it was already determined that the a/c is not working and when I asked him to check the trunk , there was no spare tire in it.
He said that this will be all rectified prior to my viewing it even though it apparently went through a safety inspection and passed with flying colors..
I'm not exactly rushing down there .
There is another 1984 300SD import just up the street from him from another importer with only 113.000 km's. and going for $ 8000 and also apparently mint.
I have been to several importers in the past month in the Vancouver area and all I can say is that I'm not impressed with their low mileage, so called mint veh's.either gas or diesel that they get..
I have noted dings, scuffs, scratches, faded and dirty seats etc. I have not seen one clean engine when the hood is opened and the hood mat on most is peeling and almost falling off. My usual thought is that these 50-100,00 km veh's look like they have 2-300.000 miles of use abuse on them. I have yet found one that I want to run and get my cheque book out.
Just my thoughts.
And yes I am from that part of the Cariboo area.
