Used approved - long time on forecourt
« on: 02 October 2020, 23:19 »
Been watching a GTI mk7 for 8 weeks now that hasn’t sold at a dealer and has been reduced £1k from original asking...

Is it possible that it’s a dud, despite used approved status? Generally thought that used approved cars were well-selected etc

If I was selling something and after 2 months it hadn't sold, what would I do? Reduce the price.
