Being Truthful

We at Droom strongly believe that sellers must be truthful and transparent while selling an automobile. Sellers have access to information about the vehicle they are selling that is far superior to what a buyer can ever develop. Trying to get the best price for a vehicle based on merit is an absolutely right thing to do. But trying to get a higher price for a vehicle based on concealment of information, lying, and fabrication of information or documents is completely wrong.

In many parts of the world, there are proper legal rules that a seller must disclose any unknown problem in the vehicle he is selling if there is a reasonable way for the seller to know about those problems. For example, saying that the car engine was not repaired or that the car has not had an accident, or the car has original paint – when the seller knows for sure that the engine was repaired, the car had an accident and he was driving it or the car was repainted. Similarly, tampering with the odometer reading or covering up any other issues with artificial means for better pricing, etc. are the things that are completely wrong morally and legally. The most blatant examples of wrongdoing by sellers would be selling a stolen car or selling a car with fabricated or not genuine documents.


  1. Tampering with the odometer reading

  2. Cloning the vehicle, which means giving the identity of one vehicle to another vehicle of the same make, model, and color

  3. Fabricating the documents

  4. Not allowing the buyer to test drive the vehicle

  5. Lying about features or specifications

  6. Misleading or cheating the buyer by offering fake coupons or discounts

  7. Knowingly concealing the information

  8. Misusing Droom’s platform for unauthorized selling and promotions

  9. Knowingly covering issues and problems

  10. Making false promises about the extra perks like accessories or services

  11. Deliberately not answering the questions that can reveal the truth

  12. Selling a stolen vehicle

  13. Selling “cut and shut” vehicle, which means making one vehicle with two accidental vehicles

  14. Diverting from mutually agreed terms of conditions settled on Droom platform

  15. Trying to bribe the vehicle inspection expert who came to inspect the vehicle to conceal important information
