Actually, I don't listen to Lonsbery, I find him disingenuous. And besides, I do still work because, unlike you, I don't feel like being on the government's teat like you.Fred, you make a point when you say that you would want to buy a car from a dealer for nothing else would for the warranty, and in general you are correct. Facts are the big name dealers in town only keep the best used cars and they simply dump their leftovers to the guys who are posting them on CL.
People feel comfortable buy a 2 year old car with 20k miles on it for doan or hoselton, but we are talking about 10 year old cars with 140k miles on them for the most part.
There is a reason that car buyers dont want any part of these at any price as for the most part they are all worn out by then or the original owners would keep them.
I have no problem with any business trying to make money as that is the backbone of our economy.
My problem is with the people posting as owners on Craigslist to try to scam car buyers. Clearly CL points out this by stating private parties no dealers when posting. Why is it one would ask dont they just post in the dealer section well there is 2 reasons, one being that dont want to pay the required 5 dollar fee, and the second is they know deep down they understand that buyers want no part of the run down junk cars they are selling.
If they are going to keep trying to scam people this forum is a great place to call them out.
And by the way you sound like a close minded Lonesberry listener that is upset by the fact that are still working in your 60s and not on early retirement like I am in my late 50s !!
Thanks for the discourse, you sound slightly smarter than your brethren on this site!
After all, our great country was built on opposing viewpoints that can co-exist together!
