After an exhausting search for a used car that nearly leveled my faith in humanity, I've decided it's my duty to review the crap out of the used car dealers who *really* offended me with their used car dealerness. My experience with this company was so bad it's actually the worst out of THOSE.

I found the car online, drove waaaaay out to Montclair to test drive it, liked it, asked Mark if I could take it to a mechanic for an inspection, and he agreed.
The day I was supposed to pick it up for the inspection, I'm a little early, so I wander over to the gate for another look at the car (I'd seen so many that were so similar, I wanted a refresher). Well as I'm looking, I notice a spot on the trunk, and then one on the roof (the ad for this car said "perfect paint"--hilarious). The color was the same as the car, but the texture was a little funny. What the...

Suddenly I can't believe I didn't notice it before...is that...RUST? Rust that's been painted over? Rust that's coming up from underneath the paint? I was racking my brain trying to think what else could cause that kind of texture in those particular (top-of-the-car) locations. I couldn't come up with anything, but then I'm no expert.

Obviously I would prefer not to sink $8K into a car that's going to have HOLES in it in a couple of years, so I decide to just ask the mechanic at the inspection. Because again, I'm no expert on painted-over rust, and there might be another explanation for the mystery paint texture.

I'd love to tell you the mechanic's verdict, but I can't. I can't, because the guy from King's Auto Sales NEVER SHOWED UP. I called twice, left a message, waited over 30 minutes...nothing. No sign of the guy. So I end up having to call the poor mechanic (who was SO SWEET) to apologize profusely for wasting his time. And then start the long drive home.

I never DID find out what happened, because they never DID call me back. After I drove 100 miles round-trip for nothing, and wasted that poor mechanic's first appointment of the day. Wow. Just wow.

I read somewhere that like 1 in 25 people is a sociopath. If that seems like a high estimate to you, try used car shopping, and hit this lot first.
