Had a really really really annoying sale on Trademe, guy was a total knob, made us pick him up from airport, used buy now within 15 minutes of putting car on Trademe etc....
Asked me lots of stuff like "has cambelt been changed" "yes at proper intervals, next one is due at 190-200k" blah blah blha
Now he hasn't changed over the ownership.
I've rang LTSA, checked and no change. So if I don't receive a response from him, should I report it stolen? AS I don't want to incur any fines and want the car off my hands.
He also didn't have it checked, cost us money to get him from the airport, car was $2900 no res, $3200 buy now.
We wasted money on:
Cost of getting to airport to pick him up
Taking time off work to sell car
Filling 3/4 of the tank with gas(wouldn't go the whole way, since it was in no way part of the sale)
Basically after all costs we only made $2900 whch was the reserve, when the car was worht a lot more.
Guy also complained about:
Clutch shudder(never noticed it myself) which meant in his mechanics eyes, needing a full new clutch. YEAH RIGHT.
Broken aerial. which could be seen in photos.
Being the good sort, I have offered to pay half the aerial cost, provided he supply me with an invoice. But told him to take the clutch issue to a Toyota Dealer, because I'm sure that his mechanic is trying to rip him off.
But anyway, if he doesn't change ownership, what are my powers?
