Columbus GA Area?

Hi -

Is there someone in the Columbus GA area that can help me check out of clubman at Legacy Chevrolet. I live in Memphis, but I might be interested in this car.

In advance - Thanks!

Have Clubman - will travel

Hi Jim,

I can go by after work and check out the Clubman for you. I'll even take it for a drive as well and give you my impressions. You know of course, if you buy it, it's gonna cost you a bottle of your finest Memphis BBQ sauce! I've PM'd you my phone number.

Here are a few things I noticed about the Clubman that were different from the posted advertisement on the car. First, its a manual not an automatic. It has the Harmon-Kardon stereo system, anthracite headliner, regular climate control system- not automatic climate control and the color is that "greyish white" as opposed to pepper white. I drove it and everything appeared to work as designed- no surprises or driving characteristics that made me think the car had problems. I found no body damage, but it was getting dark and rainy outside so that could have masked some flaws. The engine felt good and the clutch was VERY light in its actuation. I popped the hood and found no obvious modifications to the engine. The salesman said it was sold by a local person and I pried as to why would anyone sell a car with only 3500 miles on it? He didn't know...

All in all,

Thank for the assist and for the phone call. I have been swamped today, but will call the dealership, as you suggested, tomorrow.

I owe you!
