WHo\'s wrong here? I sold a car on Ebay on 7/13/02. The buyer is from canada and sent me a downpayment pretty much right away. I had thought the car would be fine driving up there, but told him not to assume that because it's been sitting so long, anything could be wrong and he should have a backup plan, I.E. Uhaul tow dolly and uhaul truck. He's like fine, whatever, we'll work something out. He doesn't really start to make any effort toward picking the car up until late september (auction pickup terms were 10 days unless we agreed on something else, and we loosely agreed on a week or so extra). At that point, he asks me to take the car to a mechanic to check it out before he comes down to get it. Not unreasonable, a little of a hassle, but fine. I go out, start the car, start to pull out (pretty impressive, it had been sitting for years), and notice a soft brake pedal, then see brake fluid dripping from under the car. I parked it and told him he has to tow it. I knock $100 off for him, too, even though I forewarned him it might end up undrivable. So I hear nothing from him from then to about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I email him that there's a situation at my house where the car is and it has to go ASAP, if he can't get it by 12/1 I'm relisting it. He emails me that he just happened to be typing me a message when he got mine, and that he's booked rental equipment to come get the car today (12/7), a week after I wanted to start a new auction (I wanted the auction to be over by today, so I could hopefully have it gone by 12/14, before I have to "pay" for storage). So here's today, and I haven't heard from him since he told me he was coming here. He may have my address from a previous message, but I don't know. Anyway, here's what I wrote him today: </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr /> _____, this car has to go. You were supposed to be getting it today, but I haven't heard from you all week, and today is here and passing. Is there any possibility you can make it here today (maybe you're on your way?) or tomorrow? If not, I'm sorry, but I'm relisting it on Ebay tomorrow evening when I have time to set up the auction. I have to move the car to storage sometime this week, since I have to allow at least a week after the auction for someone to pick it up, and by auction end the car has to be gone. I have no place to store it, so I will have to pay for storage. [/ QUOTE ] Here's the question: He sent me $500. My auction costs were around $80 or so (I have to look it up). I don't remember if I listed it as non-refundable (I'm sure I did, I always do when I sell and people have never wanted a refund). I really don't want to refund him the money, but to be honest, I'm pretty annoyed that this car is still in my yard. The only thing keeping me from being pissed is the $500. If I give it back minus my auction costs, I'll be realllllly pissed that the car sat here that much longer. So should I refund him or be stiff and keep it? Anybody want first shot on an '84 caddy limo that has to be gone (and towed) by 12/14, before it goes on ebay?
