Dealer no deal

Asked by Canute

I HAVE agreed to a price on a 2002 Mercedes-Benz C200 with the owner and paid a deposit with the proviso it is in excellent condition as checked by a mechanic. The owner has taken it to a local dealer for the checks, but after almost three weeks the dealer says it is running roughly, the timing is out and he can't say when it will be ready. I would have thought two weeks was more than enough to fix any problem he might have found. What avenue is open to me to get the dealer off his backside?

PERHAPS you could give the owner a deadline and tell him you will walk away from the deal if the car is not ready on that date. It sounds as if you are being given the runaround and I would have already walked away.
