Not sure if it has been said, but when you list or buy it states that this is a legal binding contract. So I would think a lawyer would win this.There's no place like 127.0.0.1 ... There's no place like ::1 *POOF*

I never heard from the dealer again after the initial conversation where I tried to pay for the auction I won. I spoke to Ebay, and they confirmed that all auctions are binding EXCEPT real estate and automotive. I filed a BBB complaint to try to maintain a dialogue, but the company never bothered to respond. I don't know what ultimately happened to the car, but I presume it sold.
I doubt that even 1% of bidders are aware that the contract is non-enforcable. Ebay didn't even try to make seller complete transaction, and stated that "due to variations in state laws" sales on autos are non-binding. The very frustrating lesson learned here is that a dealer doesn't have to complete a transaction (for an auto) via Ebay, and you also don't ever have to complete a transaction that you get cold feet on. Unfortunately, this is the kind of situation that makes used car dealers look dishonest and sleazy. Thanks Again Platinum Auto Group!!

I understand the dealer for not wanting to lose that amount of money, but you think they would at least contact you and give an apology, and maybe offer you a more reasonable price that both parties could agree on.
