The owner of a green auto auction in Okanagan, Canada said he didn’t take the plunge in buying a used car, despite the fact he wanted to make sure he was prepared for a crash if he did.
The owner, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to the media, said he wanted the money to help pay for the repairs to his 2009 Mazda 3 that he bought for $25,000.
“I didn`t think I had the courage,” he said, adding that he also didn’t want to put his family through another year of medical bills and lost income.
“If I had done the right thing and bought the car, I would have done it.”‘
I was so embarrassed’The man said he bought the 2008 Mazda 3 for $20,000 and paid $2,000 to the dealership.
The dealership’s online auction house accepted the sale.
The dealership told the CBC News they had never had a crash in their history, but said it was a unique situation.
“We had a few people go through a couple of vehicles in the past,” they said.
“It was a vehicle that we knew wouldn’t survive in a crash, but we just didn’t think there was any way that it could survive.”
That was the worst part of it.
“The dealership’s chief executive, Jeff Pritchard, said they had been contacted by the dealership’s insurance company, but had yet to receive a claim.
He said it is “a little bit ironic” that the man in question was “an insurance agent and a member of the public” and didn’t know about the insurance requirement.”
When we saw what happened, it was the kind of thing we can’t do anything about,” he added.”
In that case, the owner would have been out of luck.
But he said the dealership was “disappointed” with him.””
I had a lot of pride in that car, and I didn’t even think that it was going to be a problem.”
But he said the dealership was “disappointed” with him.
“They’re a good dealership, but that doesn’t make them any less embarrassed.”
The owners’ insurance company has issued a statement saying it will work with the man to figure out how to resolve the issue.
“The vehicle was purchased by the owner and was insured by the dealer,” the statement said.
