“It was just like a big rush,” she said.
“They were just running through the mall and I’m like, ‘Hey, man, I don’t even know what to do with this car.'”
The dealership was quick to reply that she could return the car to her previous owner.
“I was like, okay, I have a new car,” she recalled.
The car was a red convertible that had been repainted in a new paint scheme, a black interior with white stitching, and blacked out windows.
But her new owner was unaware of this until he called her on the phone.
“He told me to get it out and it’s got the new color,” she told Next Big Futures.
“So, I got it and it was like a different car.
I’ve got it right now.
It’s pretty much a new vehicle.
It was like I just gave it to someone else.
I didn’t give it to my parents.”
The new owner bought the car on March 15th for $17,200.
But the dealership was only offering $17.50, which was not enough to cover the cost of repainting the car, which included painting the windows, a new interior, and a new roof.
After the repain was done, the new owner paid the $17 price and returned the car back to the dealership.
The dealership was furious and demanded the car returned for the full $17 they had spent on the repaint.
“They had no idea what they were getting into, but they were not happy,” the newowner said.
She eventually received her car back and the dealership paid the full price of $18,800.
“And it was a total shock to them, so I don�t know how I felt,” she added.
“I was scared that if they had bought the other car I wouldn’t be able to get the car out, because I have to get a new one.”
After repainning the car in the new paint, the dealership said the car was “ready for sale,” but when Next Big News asked them what the reason for this was, the repainted car was returned to the same person who bought it.
“My next question was, ‘Why did you do that?’
And the guy was like ‘Oh, I just wanted to get rid of it.’
I was like what?
No, this is not a good idea.
I don`t want it back.”
The dealership did not respond to Next Big Magazine’s request for comment.
