Car buyers, beware. In 2006 my husband and I bought a 2006 Dodge Stratus from a dealership.
At the time of purchase the salesman said that it was a program car with less than 2,000 miles. I had never at the time heard of CARFAX.
I went to a dealership out of state in 2010 and wanted to trade for a Kia. They popped a CARFAX on me that said the car had been wrecked in New Jersey and the whole front end was replaced. They showed me the difference in the paint job.
Needless to say, that cut my trade-in deeply.
I just want everyone that deals with any dealership to ask for that CARFAX. If you go online it will cost you, but the dealerships must give you that CARFAX, or get back in your car and leave the lot.
Shame on those who lied to me. I am sure happy with a new car with a great warranty and a CARFAX. I learned a great lesson.
