Terry: Hey, Samantha. It's Terry.
Samantha: Oh, hi Terry. How's it going?
Terry: Not bad. Hey, the reason I'm calling is that I heard from Veronica that you're looking for a used car.
Samantha: Yeah, I'm hoping to find something reliable but cheap.
Terry: Well, I have just the thing for you. My brother has a 2001 Ford he's trying to sell. It has low miles, it's in good condition, and he's in a hurry to sell it.
Samantha: Your brother, huh? That's not the same brother who tried to sell me a stereo system that fell off the back of a truck, is it?
Terry: No, no, no. That's a different brother. Listen, this is a really nice car. It has a leather interior, power windows and doors, gets great gas mileage, and the tires are practically new. And, it's a steal at $7,000.
Samantha: How do I know it's not a lemon? I don't want to end up with a piece of junk.
Terry: Come on. Would I steer you wrong?
Samantha: Well, it won't hurt to go see it and to give it a test drive.
Terry: Trust me. You won't be sorry.
Samantha: We'll see about that.
