    they have named all the for sale vans to sound like they care so the newbies fall for it....

    i'm sure they do. as we know all sellers are interested in the welfare of the buyer.

  6. All this misrepresentation does reflect badly on their brand and screams dodgy moral compass!

    I was lining them up to get Litesteer fitted on my van as they are close and now am thinking 'are these the kind of people I want to deal with?' May have to explore other options as a result of Champers episode.

  7. You thought that all along no?
    It doesn't mean you lost out - people happily pay a premium to a dealer - fact.

    Yes i thought it fishy I never met or spoke to "Fraser" only e mail, I suspected summat when I dealt with "Paul " from vwd but I would still have sold, I guess some sellers don't like selling if they think someone is gonna profit? Personally I asked 16k on the ad, and 15k on here, they paid 15.5k so good luck to them, I just think it's naughty saying mileage is true.

    My advert said mileage was not verified and engine had been rebuilt recently
     
  13. That's also a bit of a stretch!

  14. I'd agree "low mileage" and "86k miles from new" might be stretching the truth then. If it were true mileage then it would only be 2,260 miles per year. Mine shows 97,500 and is a 1972 so that is only 2,270 miles per year, that's relatively consistent (mine is also a US import). I wonder ..... is mine a 'low' mileage bus as well?

    I did list the parts fitted and didn't claim full rebuild.
