in an accident and the salesman replies something like this: "Absolutely not! If it
had been in an accident I couldn't sell you this vehicle even if I wanted to."

collision damage, the salesman's false claim may play back in your mind, but be assured
that the salesman is never going to admit to having made such a pronouncement.
