" Lady driven or Doctor driven "

Just a mini morning rant . I've been browsing the local classifieds and noticed alot of cars with the above noted caption WTF ??!!!
Are doctors really that much better than the rest of us that they deserve this caption ? You never see " plumber owned " BMW for sale do you ?
Just wanted to know why doctor owned cars are really that much "better"
.....and what if the car was owned by a female doctor ?
Sorry , don't wanna sound sexist but its just an observation .

Well, doctors are supposedly responsible, respectable members of society, and therefore would not drive irresponsibly, for fear of harming their reputation.

Women are less aggressive than men, and again supposedly don't abuse their cars (although maintenance is another story! /chauvinist pig)

It used to be that on bank account applications or even passport apps, you had to get a "character witness", who had to be a doctor, lawyer or politician...

Then they figured that if they can rely on politicians, then can rely on anyone.

I know quite a few doctors that track their car. Would you consider buying that?

lol, it's not that they're better than us, they just have more money than us, so they maintain their cars at the dealer only.

Funny story, the 911 GT3 that I entered into a pretty reckless time attack in July and came out unscathed was soon after the event sold to a doctor. It was almost immediately written off.

I would soon rather buying a well maintained car from an enthusiast like myself who drove the car the way it was meant to, than from some guy who putted along at 80 on the HWY and did oil changes once a year (regardless if they are male, female, but doctor, molester, or rapist).

But then again, in the used car market you have people who pretty much only pay attention to mileage...that's it, so an excessively well/OCD maintained high mileage car like mine is worthless to them over a garage queen that has sludged up and dried out like crispy kruller donut from Tim hortons left overnight on a kitchen table.

Yep! Most people who track their cars love them and maintain the shit out of them.

Agree. I always look at cars being sold on forums first, followed by non-dealer ads on the various online sites (kijiji, craigslist, trader etc). But I've noticed lately, alot of dealers try to pass their ads off as as private sellers..

There is absolutely nothing wrong with buying from a dealer. I never stated that even for a second. In fact, I've had many people tell me that they've been badly burned by private sellers with zero recourse.

The steps to take with the vehicle you like are the same regardless if you are buying privately or through a dealer. Do you due diligence, if you don't know much, have it inspected, etc and remember, you are buying a used car anything can go wrong at any time.

My favourite .... "won't last"

I think in general, dealers ask a higher price....supposedly because they back their product. I'd stay away from dealers that you don't trust. Either way, it's helpful to know your car stuff or at least bring a friend who truly does. We bought our Honda Odyssey from a Honda dealer and has a ton of small issues. They fixed it all without a single retort. However, I could forsee them taking advantage of an average consumer.

Come to think of it, I know a number of "lady drivers" that just suck! Hit everything... At least the car you buy from one of them would have lots of new parts on it!

lol.. well arent we all FBI profilers now..

they typically are bad drivers, since they lack the common sense in the equiliberium department.. more book smarts... kinda like asian drivers that drive 80km/h in the fast lane, and have their right blinker on with both hands straddled to the steering wheel with their concentrated death face

Most of them are overleveraged aswell with homes and other debt to care about their car maintenaince...


the guy selling his 08 m3 sedan in the classifieds is a doc..
