Re: Previous owner was grimey

This is why when buying a car you look at all the lights to make sure they work.

When you turn the car on the CEL will turn on, if it doesn't then its taped over like yours or someone took the bulb off.

Re: Previous owner was grimey

Wow that **** is low.

When I sell something I tell the buyer what they are getting

ex: my old lude, ya she burned oil like a mofo but I sure as hell made sure the buyer understood that before settling on a price with him. (course then he totalled it a month later)

Some people... Honestly
