Craigslist is a funny thing. It has changed a great deal in the past few years. It was always a little dicey about auto sales, but it’s gotten worse. We keep running into ads with anomalies that make us wonder why someone would claim to sell a car in our area when their phone number is listed in New York, or Oregon, or places like that.
There was a local dealer offering several decent cars on Craigslist. We went to look; not a single one of those cars was visible on their lot. It looked to me like a high-pressure bait-n-switch. Oh well; car dealers do have one of the lowest reputations in the US.
We found one that was a really good deal. Less than two hours after it was posted, we drove by and it was already gone.
That’s the way it’s been for us. This whole search has been quite frustrating. Pray with us.
