this comes with selling all things especially cars. huge time wasters out there. Its just..reality
I almost wouldve taken that guys 11k just do be done with it. But sounds like his attitude about the whole thing turned you off. you arent desperate so the search for a buyer continues.
on the contrary with it coming etest and safety I dont why someone isnt willing to pay you that extra $700 you agreed on. Car is ready to go. He tells insurance and off he goes. No work on his end. Youve done all the hard work.(sure down the road an old car needs maintenance but so what. You dont pay for things now based on wear items down the road). I paid more for my car and it needed more work from day one.
someone is out there keep your hopes up and be a little more cut throat before hand in dealing with these fools.
