BEWARE OF SILVERLINE !!

When shopping for a car, I looked seriously at two vehicles there and even though listed as clean titles, they ended up being branded or salvaged.

Definitely expensive and really low mileage. I have seen others from them that have eclipsed the $30k mark.

I usually look for inexpensive Foresters but that one was unusual.

Was a cash buyer at the time and drove 200 miles to look at a couple cars they had which were listed as clean titles. Asked to see a copy of the title and was told there must have been a mistake and it was branded. Looked at another and it was a salvage title that was listed as clean in advertisements.

I would be mad had it happened to me twice back in the 1990s was looking for a Datsun 2000 (Roadster). Guy in Delaware was advertising one look nice in the pictures. After driving 1/2 a day to get there. Car was a 1600 that the guy stuck 2000 badges on. He spray painted it black to make it look good. And it smelled like it came out of a dump and was non-running.

Then I drove 3 hours to look at a TR-6 in the pictures and description described as fully restored. When I got there it was in a field rusted and parts have been removed.

In both cases I think these people were hoping someone would buy sight unseen and by the time they received the car these people figure it would cost too much to go after them. In neither case did these people make excuses or apologize.

A lot of con artist out there. Always have a used car checked out by a mechanic and get a history on the vehicle before buying.
