Honest Used Cars Dealers

Hello All,

Is there such a species as an honest used-cars dealer? If there is one, where can I find it in Geneva?

Yes there is - but I don't know Geneva.

Perhaps you might was to elaborate on your requirements. Are you looking for a used Enzo, 458 or 599?

Re: Honest Used Cars Dealers

My mom used to say all car dealers are rascals, even though we are related to one Maybe not quite untrue when you consider the fact that the horse dealers in the olden days were also known as scamps.

It is always good to take someone with you who knows about cars and the tricks and where and what to look for, so that would be my advice.

I could recommend you one garage in Schwyz, but unfortunately not inGeneva.

If you are looking for a toyota or lexus, I can recommend a local dealer who is honest and competent. www.toyotabellevue.ch.

I have no connection, other than that they service our car. They have a salesman who speaks good english.

Re: Honest Used Cars Dealers

Much easier to find one away fromn large towns like Zurich or Geneva- really. I could certainly recommend a few here.

Re: Honest Used Cars Dealers

I think the Oxford definition of "Oxymoron" may well list "honest car dealer" right up there with "military intelligence" as best examples....

Truthfully, I believe used car dealers are no worse than new car dealers, but that is not saying much.

Re: Honest Used Cars Dealers

I like to say that probably all the honest ones have gone out of business long ago.
;-)
Together with decent but not ultra-pricey hifi/TV-shops and the typical "Computer store".
