What are the Biggest Fibs that Sellers Tell?

How about:

  • It weighs less than 1000 pounds.
  • It doesn't leak
  • I don't know if the ____ works, I've never used it.
  • The tires are perfect - lots of tread (but 15 years old...shhhh)
  • It has only been sitting in that field for a year or so

And of course:

"I've got 5/10/15 people showing up here in five minutes with cash in their sweaty little hands, so make up your mind!!!!!!!!"

I bought it from the original owner.

They were a retired elderly couple who only used it few times before putting in the garage.

I can't believe no one's posted the usuals that apply to ALL vehicles:

1) "It's never been smoked in"
and
2)" It's never had pets of any kind in it!"

That happened when I was buying the Fiber Stream and the seller was telling the Truth! Only he told me that 2 other buyers were meeting him at the trailer (Parked at the curb on a busy street) the next day at 5:00PM. I arrived the next day at 4:30PM. The other 2 buyers were there by 4:45 and the seller showed up at 5:10 to unlock it. The others agreed that I could have 1st right of refusal since I was the early bird. He only wanted the NADA guide price,and I offered $200 less because of the leak damage I pointed out. Neither competitor wanted to offer more so I won!
