Matt, please do the right thing and at least refund my $500 deposit. I am out $180 in a cancelled flight and out taking two days off work. After conferring with my legal counsel, the status of the vehicles title is other than what was presented in our agreement. You agreed to release my deposit once the vehicle is sold but the vehicle cannot be sold until my deposit is released in such circumstances. I have no doubt you are a good person so i am confident you will do the right thing in this matter. I will promptly post when the deposit has been refunded and wish you the best on your sale. Thanks in advance, take care
Maybe some others who have dealt with Matt will chime in. I am one of them. I did look at this car earlier in this year when I was looking to purchase my first Viper. Matt was upfront about the damage and the title. I never had an issue. I understood how to read a carfax report. This car just wasn't for me.
In fact, Matt had another car he was considering buying to fix up and sell. That car was in an accident that the previous owner had paid cash to fix so the title would be clean. Matt told me about the accident and sent pictures. If he hadn't, I never would have known it had been in an accident nor would any other buyer. Some sellers wouldn't have said a thing. Matt was upfront about every detail.
Lastly, for those of you who don't know Matt, he is currently helping a few people who bought Vipers from him but are now going through rough financial times due to the economy. He doesn't have to but he does. That is Matt.
Goldlifter has absolutely nothing to worry about. Matt is a stand up guy.
Not to beat a dead horse, but just for giggles:
How does a car with a junk/rebuilt title in 2002 emerge in 2007 with a clean title?
In ending I will say this to anyone wishing to know the whole truth regarding this accident it is very easy to contact the Washington State municipality in which this accident was documented. It should be quite clear by the police report, which anyone with 5 dollars can obtain, just how minor an accident this was. My stand is unchanged nor will it be regarding the way this seller should have posted this car for sale in the beginning.It would not, unless carfax made a mistake and they do all the time. Call that states DMV and give them the vin # to find out the histroy. Carfax is NOT a very reliable source of information, they are only a guide. The owner of this car should dispute the report with carfax, but they will not change the report unless you take them to court. This car will still sell for $36K.
