MIAMI - This is just the beginning.



This car is starting to bug me.... What on earth could be wrong with it?!

http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...ListingId=322412566&listingId=324206699&Log=0

How is it such low miles and at that price not sold?

Things that come to mind:

1. False Mileage.
2. unreported accidents
3. Hurricane damage?

Anyone got any ideas? Because it seems to good to be true, which usually means it is. But if it isn't well ****...

You're right. It looks pretty flawless. KBB shows excellent for $27k w/ that mileage :confused:

However, being in FL, it doesn't really justify having AWD...and perhaps that's the reason why it's not selling.

It did cross my mind that FL isn't quite the right market for it. Hmmm.

Dang that is a nice deal! And well from what I have heard this has been for sale for quite some time. I mean I first saw it a month ago.

Just sucks its 3000mi from me so its not the easiest thing to just swing by and check out. :(

run the carfax.

could have been a good auction score by the dealer, considering the "uncommon" 3.2Q combo, no other dealers wanted it, and they got lucky. It happens. and they want it gone, thus the reasonable price.

My 06 3.2 sat on autotrader for six months while i watched the price go down 4 times. When it went below $20K, I jumped on it, and negotiated delivery to me in New England from down south as part of the deal.

And that was 4 years ago!:laugh:

Well its no major rush, I still need to sell my GTI first. But if you could just go give it a once over? Maybe a test drive even? haha

Things like - Possible previous damage? Seems under the hood (will be different usually if body panels have been replaced?

As for the rest I am still learning about the A3 and doing my research. So I am not exactly sure of what all I should be looking for.

I bought my with 9k miles in June of 2011 26.5k - that doesn't sound unreasonable but it's good to be suspicious.

Very cool of you to take a look for him. There's n R8GT I was eyeing down there in Miami @ shipping containers are us I was wondering if you could take a look for me as well.

Oh big money over here... haha That would be a sweet thing to have. Maybe in 10 or 15 years for me though.

Now to contact bank just in case and look into shipping! haha
