CAA Quebec warns us face very tempting prices of cars available on the internet

Since last week, CAA-Quebec has been an upsurge in the number of vehicles used for sale on the Internet has largely lower than the actual market value price. Presented some popular sites, these ads have attracted the attention of experts auto consulting CAA-Quebec who now wish to caution interested consumers to avoid them a nasty surprise.            

In replying to these ads, we see for example, the telephone number of advertisers are missing or simply invalid. Contacts by email, then sellers are relying on a travel outside the country to explain their absences, but provide all the same that the transaction could be carried out quickly thanks to an intermediate. For this purpose, a sum of money is required as a down payment, including through specialized websites on the subject. Caution is called for!            

To ensure it was not some isolated cases, CAA-Quebec has repeated the experience several times, which showed that the same ploy is used to further announcements published. "Several CAA-Quebec have demonstrated the interest in these vehicles has low prices. With our observations, we want to avoid that some are tempted and investing money they might lose. That is why we today ' Today recall some basic rules on the subject, "says Sophie Gagnon, Senior Director, Public and Government Relations, CAA-Quebec.

The basic tips

The rule of thumb is never to transfer money to a seller without the prior being able to obtain and validate the serial number of the vehicle to ensure it is not a vehicle stolen or declared loss total. Similarly, the consumer should always be able to perform a test drive and have the opportunity to realize an inspection properly before buying the car or a down payment. "It is particularly important to obtain registration in person with some give their ads a serial number which can prove to be valid, but not from a vehicle sale, so probably steals" precise Ms. Gagnon.

Other signs

Besides the fact that they can present misleading coordinates, these ads are Broadcast for very short time, 24 to 48 hours. In addition, photographs of these vehicles are treated so often attractive and sometimes seem to have been taken in a clean southern U.S. environment. Finally, CAA-Quebec invites its members to contact their auto consulting services to check the validity of their offers that are presented.
