Craigslist

Recommended Posts

Just sold a 59 Corvette which took 4 months. Cost me $20 and was well worth it. I had calls from all over the United States on it. Personally I use searchtempest. Not sure what other sites there are but it is easy to search all the Craigslist now. I did not advertise that car anywhere else.

When I was selling my Jeep this summer I was charged $5 for the ads in OC 

This was just for auto sales , not all ads

IMHO this is GREAT.  Anytime I ever try to find any vehicle on CL there are always a couple dealers that post each of their cars 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 times with every keyword imaginable so you can't find ANYTHING.

At the top left of the page you can click on owners only and get rid of the dealers. Plus next to it you can click on different cities and look at adds from that city.  DON~~~

That's good advice... unless you want to look at dealer inventory too.  For example my gray WJ was found at a Subi dealer.  It was a 1-owner, always dealer maintained trade in on a Outback (so you know they weren't big off-roaders) and to this day is the cleanest WJ I've come across... if I hadn't been searching dealers I would have missed it.   Dealers advertising is fine.  Dealers advertising the same car a million times and using every keyword (brand name, model, engine, etc.) know to man is bullshit.

Also true, but that doesn't solve the problem when you're searching.  Unless you take the time to report literally tends of thousands of posts, then hope they get taken down they're still going to fill your searches with nothing but noise.  I think this was the best move CL could have done, and the price is very fair.  $5 to list your car isn't going to "hurt" any private party seller... but it is going to keep B-rate dealers from listing a $5k shitbox 100 times...

I get that, but you're not understanding what I'm saying. If you want to shop dealers you'll have that on. If dealers can post cars a zillion times with unrelated keywords they'll add unmanageable noise to your search.

You can also click where it says to bundle duplicates. So that 2007 FORD Escape that the dealer has posted a zillion times under every key word imaginable only show's one time.
