I didn't smell a rat, but my mechanic should have. He went with me to buy the car. He could have picked up on these signs. First that the car was perfectly detailed and the engine was spotless. Secondly, the seller had printed out a Car Fax with everything in a huge font. Now I know it wasn't what a real CarFax looks like, and all the information on it was fake. Thirdly, the instrument panel had a tachometer or miles per gallon gauge that was stuck on zero. And the temperature has the top half faded out so you can't read it.
The gas gauge won't go past 1/4 tank when you fill it up. Not only that, but if he knew about Camrys he would have seen where you press CAR and FUEL button, it shows the accurate miles left until empty even though the fuel gauge doesn't.
The last straw: After I told my mechanic I had been scammed, he said "Yeah, after you gave him the cash, that guy went running down the street with it". I had no clue about buying a used car and someone like me should have bought one at a dealer. I trusted my mechanic, and shouldn't have!
Hahahah. Now it's kind of funny, but hey, I got a good car. If I were taller I would just keep the darn thing. Toyota Camrys are amazing cars. This one was a gem.
