Car for Sale by Owner

Car For Sale by Owner

 

By Elton Camp



With a used car dealer’s unsavory reputation

The ad,  “For sale by owner” is a temptation

But if you decide to go this route, take care

Remember the caution, “Let the buyer beware”



In such a case there’s not any implied guarantee

If it breaks down at once, it’s out of luck you be

The owner says that, “Once a week it was used”

But not that his teenage son the car badly abused



A superficial look and you might not suspect

That five times the car was in a major wreck

And last time, the car was fixed by his brother

Front from one car and the back from another



If the seller mentions he’s active in his church

Get ready to be cheated and left in the lurch

So buy a car from an individual if you must

But always verify and never ever dare to trust
