    I hardly think the situation you describe is worth warning people off the car. Maybe he didnt understand your text, took me a few tries to understand 100% of your post without adding commas and full stops myself. Or maybe he/she just decided not to sell anymore? Or didnt like your car?

    noo he complete avoided the question,
    It aint hard to reply to a text sayin "when was the last cambelt change done"
    and it was him that made the offer to me and was rushing to get a deal from me.
    he only emailed me 2 days ago but people can come to there own conclusions to it

    Like i said, maybe he changed his mind. Doesn't mean people shouldn't deal with him. Just seems ott to warn people off it, fair enough if you actually had proof it was dodgy but your just assuming.

    If he made an offer on your car it's quite possible he's done the same with other people, if so he has probably got a better deal for his car and gone off the idea. I see what you mean though, it's usualy the first question I ask when buying a car, if they don't give me a straight answer or are not honest I tend not to buy.
