Just recently Test Drive Technologies was called out to inspect a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD in Mention, Missouri. After putting the vehicle through 230 of 400 checkpoints the vehicle was lifted onsite at the dealership's location for the full undercarriage examination. Upon lifting the vehicle the Test Drive Technologies inspector found that the undercarriage covers were missing and the previous owner had removed the entire front driveline and it was missing. The inspector immediately informed the dealership owner who himself could not believe his own eyes as he had purchased the vehicle from another dealership as a wholesale contract without looking at the car personally. The Test Drive Technologies inspection client was called on location and described the situation. The client passed on the purchase of the vehicle upon receiving the report.
Test Drive Technologies wants everyone to know this could easily happen to you with any vehicle purchase even if you do see it firsthand. If the undercarriage covers had been present of the Porsche 911 Turbo and the vehicle not lifted to inspect the undercarriage, the purchasing client could have been stuck with the vehicle sale as is with no recourse due to the lack of a buyer’s remorse law and lemon law coverage. Buyer’s remorse and lemon law claims are only valid for new car purchases and for the original owner.
Test Drive Technologies wants every used car buyer to beware of their right to fully have a vehicle inspected by an independent company before finalizing the sale. More information can be found about buyer’s removes, lemon law claims and how to protect buyers and sellers during the used car buying process on the Test Drive Technologies website at http://www.TestDriveTech.net/
