A report on the sale of the 2017 Volkswagen Jettas that was widely circulated online and at trade shows, but the story was quickly debunked by the company.
The report, which said the car sold for $37,000, claimed that the buyer of the car was “a wealthy individual” who paid $11,000 for it, which would be the “maximum” price for a Jetta.
“The seller paid the seller for the car and the seller is a wealthy individual,” the report read.
“The seller was able to purchase the car from a dealership and it has a history of being owned by a wealthy person.”
But the seller’s history and the car’s “history of being a wealthy purchaser” is a myth, according to a review of the seller and the vehicle in question.
For example, the seller of the Jetta told the seller he had owned the car since 2012, the report said, and the buyer claimed the car had been “maintained for years.”
According to the report, the buyer paid $12,000 and “had a history with the seller.”
The Jetta sold for about $25,000 in 2016, but it was sold for nearly $37 of that amount last year, the sale report said.
According the seller, the car has “a clean history” and was in good condition before being purchased.
However, the price tag for the vehicle has since risen, the Jetta report said and the price has now increased to $37.9 million.
It’s unclear why the car is listed as being worth $37 million.
Volkswagen declined to comment on the report.
The report was later removed from the site and replaced with a report by a car broker that said the sale price was $12 million.
The buyer was the same individual who paid nearly $13 million for the 2017 model year Audi A3, the broker wrote.
That report, however, stated that the vehicle had “a cleaned history” at the time of sale.
That broker said the buyer is “a highly sought after customer” who “gives his customers a great deal.”
