/ Buying a USED CAR in Poland, my personal experiences and TRAPS to avoid !!
I have sent a new car from America to Poland, bought a new car in Poland from the dealer, bought a 2-year-old car from the original owner but through "komis", have sold a car through alegro and am now thinking about selling another car. I think I am lucky because I have not encountered any of the issues described by the author of this post.
I, too, follow the mantra of trust no one, but when we sold one car before, it had a stone-damaged windshield that we had filled in (it was a small spot) and had been thinking about changing the whole windshield. It really can happen.
And now the car I am thinking about selling, it has some dents and scratches (all acquired in parking situations - nobody left a note, of course) and we have considered a re-paint or partial repaint which would cause paint thickness differentials on the czujnik.
And our newest car acquired a scratch (ok, I did it) and we had it fixed and painted the whole panel and blended the color. That would also cause differentials but the structure of the car remained unharmed.
I have pictures of all stages of repairs on all my cars (mantra - don't trust the body shop) and anyhow, any potential buyer would know immediately that as an American I am inherently trustworthy ;)
