Question type: General

The car is a 2004 Mercedes ml350.  We received 2 requests for a test drive
but never got confirmation.  How could someone "buy" our car without our
knowledge? What is happening?

No one here can help you. From the comments I have seen you have to be crazy to allow CG's to control your car sale.

We never allowed car gurus to “control” the sale of our car, we just posted it.

GuruC99CB: I was in contact with a seller and had a test drive set up for next weekend. Imagine my dismay when I also received an email that said the car was sold. I cannot contact the seller, because the ad was removed. However, today when I tried viewing the ad on my web browser on my pc,(I was using my phone previously) the ad has an "Expired" flag next to it. As I remember, I think the ad was 27 days old when I 1st viewed it, so when I got the emasil on March 1st, at 12:59 pm, it would make sense. But now, if this is true, I have no way of reaching the seller because CG doesn't allow contact by email or SMS text when the ad is not active. I can only HOPE that if the seller did not sell the car, that he notices the ad expired and tries contacting me. I see on the CG site that ads are only good for 30 days, but can be renewed if done before the following 30 days. Good Luck to you in finding an answer.
