Where is the car located? Was it maintained? Does it have valid/current inspection?

i dont understand that rule. in many cases you should not have to give a price. if u are interested it really is not that much effort to send a pm. and the price shouldnt really change ur interest. you can safely assume he is not giving it (or many items) away for free or charging way to much. so if you acually have an interest in the car then move your mouse and send a pm. and this applies to many other items.

Dan has stated many times that this place is not ebay.  FWIU the point of rule is so there shouldn't be bidding wars on every item that goes up for sale. It seems that Dan isn't into that kind of way of doing business.

im not saying that no items should have a price but most people dont say hmm that 7k car is 500 off today i think i will take it etc. also its hard to have a bidding war when its done through pms. and finally why should the seller lose out. maybe he posts an item at 75 but had he not put a price someone would have offered 100. and if the buyer would offer 50 he can just say im looking for 75.

And that's another good point - but its just the opposite.

Why should the buyer get ripped off just bec he may not know the going rate/value of the item? If the seller has a price in mind,  he should state it openly instead of catching a big clueless fish and charging more than he ever expected to even get for it.

Obviously it would be great for the seller but many people considere that non-ethical, which I believe Dan is one of those and you can therefore make that into another reason for the rule.

Its like the American tourist shopping in Israel and the guy makes up a price based on how rich you look.  Its great for him and there's definitely no way around it, but image every market place was like that. Would you like it?

i dont think the buyer should be getting ripped off or that it will happen. this is the internet, not a brick and mortar store. 2 minutes of research will get him an idea of what an item should cost.

BUMP

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS in Grey for sale with 115,XXX miles. It has grey leather, sunroof, remote start, and wood trim interior. We need a larger car so unfortunately have to sell now. Was in a minor accident and was all properly fixed. The car is in good condition and can go many more miles and years. There are some minor dings and dents which always happen when you live in NY and there are some minor issues that do not affect driving and are not to expensive to fix. Edmunds.com says my car would be valued at $8000 for a private sale and more from a dealer but I am not asking that much. I am willing to negotiate within reason so if interested please PM me.

Also if anyone knows of anyone who deals in used cars and would be interested please let me know.

Thanks

Too many times the buyer has a unreasonably high price and is just wasting everyone time just to see who is interested. Being upfront with your price ultimately with save much time for the members and for the straightforward  seller

If that is the case than I am asking for around $7800 but am willing to negotiate. If interested please make an offer.

What did the dealer offer you? 5? 4?
