    My old car for sale

    traded in my old car on 1st feb and have just found it for sale. Advertised with stuff I never knew it had eg full service history!!! didnt have that when i had it.

    looks well and nice to see it advertised as in excellent condition

    yes I did trade it in yesterday, going to be having a few words I think. It is being sold bbr a 'private' seller and is advertised as having ABS, alarm and full service history, non of which it had when traded in yesterday.

    At least I notified DVA who I sold it to

    I'd be telling trading standards and your friends at the cop shop, not the dvla! Are you not now suspicious of your new car? get some digging done on it and find out if it is all legit!

    if u look closely youll see the text block at the top has just been copy pasted or maybe a standard format for their listings whereas the spec of your car has been outlined in the second block

    i dont think they are lying at all - more a case of them not being savvy with the technology and web platform etc - the R/C/L/alarm part is obviously not strictly correct but again i dont see it as misleading or should i say lying

    i would just have a careful word to point out the correct spec and then its up to them to update their ads

    ... did you machine polish out the scratches above the driver's door where the flashy light used to sit then?

    Quick google of the contact number reveals a 5dr Skoda Octavia for sale in Comber a couple of weeks ago on Gumtree.

    Could the dealer you traded it in to have knocked it on out to a friend/contact in the trade who deals from home?
