  1. I bought a 2008 Toyota Rav 4 with about 175,000 miles in Texas from a dealership that sells new and used cars. I bought this vehicle on an "as is basis" with no warranty. The car was inspected by an independent garage before the purchase. Everything was found to be in working condition. The dealership said the car has been checked and would pass state inspection. I drove the Rav4 about 60 miles from the dealer immediately after purchase. The check engine light, the VSC light, and the slip indicator light came on. The diagnostic system shows the following codes: P0420 - Catalyst system efficiency low. C1201 - Engine control system (ECM) Malfunction - ECM is not able to work with the Electronic Stability Control System and Anti-lock Braking System. I have tried to contact the dealer. There is no response yet during this holiday weekend. What are my options at this point given that I bought this vehicle on an as is basis? Is the dealer responsible in any way for selling a defective vehicle that cannot pass state inspection? Do I have the option of cancelling the payment made to the dealership?
  2. Hello all, I'm conducting a research on car retailing and consumers. This project examines people's point of view and opinions on buying cars using different retail channels. I'm trying to collect data using a questionnaire for numerical analysis, and the results of this research can maybe provide an insight to players in the car retail industry alike. Since anyone who's bought a car or thinks of buying one can answer, car users and sellers alike can answer, regardless of whatever car you use/sell. Are you able to help me? It's a short survey that should take no more than a couple minutes to complete. Here's the link: https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d5qXbmIgYMwnySy If you have any questions or would like to know more you can ask away. Many thanks and have a nice day :)
  3. Good morning. We are a group of students, developing an app for selling/buying cars online, and would love your feedback and ideas. We would like to ask some questions, to see your thoughts and comments. We have spoken to potential users, we have received some good ideas and feedback so far. Given the following sites for selling and buying cars online https://www.ebay.com/b/Auto-Parts-and-Vehicles/6000/bn_1865334 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/ https://www.coches.net/segunda-mano/ 1). What is something that current online buying/selling sites don't have, but think is a must when it comes to selling and buying cars online? 2). What is a fundamental thing an online car site must have, but maybe the current sites lack or don't provide? We would love to share all the progress being made, of the development phase with this great community Thank you for your thoughts and comments.
