I just found two listings (by different dealerships in different
States) for what purported to be used Prius Fours, which, when I
checked the VIN at carfax.com, turned out to be Prius Twos.
Is this kind of thing common with other models and makes, or is bait
and switch easier and more common with Priuses because there is no
badge on the back to indicate the trim level?
I find numerous errors in the local freebie cars for sale magazine
(dealer adverts, not private sales), from simple errors such as the
completely wrong photo through to ridiculous things like saying a Mazda
MX-5/Miata has four doors.
On the local eBay clone which has a vehicle section, there are cars
also ridiculous descriptions. One not long ago was advertised as
"unmodified" in the title, yet the description was on about it having
been lowered, different driver's seat, bigger/louder exhaust, the
pictures showed extra dials installed on top of the dashboard, etc. I
actually posted a question querying how that could possibly be
"unmodified" and the idiot simply replied with "thank you for your
comment" and then had the question deleted. :-\
