This is why I hate buying and selling cars Advertised 12 year old Nissan Micra on Ebay, loads of interest (80+ watchers, 15+ bidders), went for £890 to a buyer who hadn't seen it. Can was described accurately, with the one fault (rear heated screen not working) mentioned. Buyer collected, paid cash and left forgetting to sign the V5. I contacted them to arrange for it to be signed (have subsequently sent into DVLA with covering letter anyway because of the next bit), for buyer to respond that they are disappointed with the car as the gearbox whines and they feel it doesn't accurately meet the description that other than the screen "everything else works perfectly". They've taken it to a garage who have said the gearbox is knackered and he wants to return the car for a refund. He was quoted £450 to have a recon gearbox installed. From my perspective the car was advertised in good faith, the gearbox worked perfectly (changes smoothly, no judder, no skipping out of gear) and the car was as noisy as it ever had been. Buyer has yet to leave Ebay feedback, however I'm not massively bothered about losing my 100% positive, although it will be pain. I've told the buyer that I'm not willing to take the car back, but I don't want to appear to be some scamming git so am considering asking him to supply an engineers report confirming that there's an issue together with a quotation for the work (which I will validate with my own garage) and offer to pay half. I'm a nice bloke and don't want to be an a-hole, but am I being too nice and should I tell him to poke it? The buyer also seemed completely genuine and not a scammer in any way. Car selling sucks!
