Chinese Woman Bought a Parking Spot Sight Unseen for $29,000 and Discovered That She Could Get Out of Her Car Only Via the Sunroof

It’s probably a good idea to inspect what you’re buying, especially if it costs a lot of money. Case in point: a woman in China bought a parking space for 200,000 yuan ($29,000) without seeing it first, and was surprised to find out that the space was so narrow that the only way she could move out of her parked car was to climb out of the sunroof!

The space is located conveniently near to the elevator in the parking garage, but inconveniently in between two walls, leaving just enough room for a car to pull in, but not enough for the driver to actually open to door and get out. The woman, surnamed Tao, said that the only way she could actually leave her vehicle was through the sunroof.

Tao has already decided to bring the matter to the court upon the company's refusal to give her a refund. Read the full article over at Shanghaiist.


A 2014 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that 60% of Chinese households owned a motorcycle, while only 17% owned a car. In the US it's 88% cars and 14% motorcycles. Seller probably assumed the buyer rides a bike.A 2014 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that 60% of Chinese households owned a motorcycle, while only 17% owned a car.
