What did I find on Craigslist? This..

Post by MDK » Mon Aug 19, 2019 5:50 pm

MDK here. Ok gang here we go. So a good poker player never shows his hand until the pot is big and ain't bluffing. However, I wanted to pay it forward so 2 speak. I found a 2004 V70 NA in Lenoir Tennessee. They claim it has only 63,000 miles and want essentially 5 grand.If it's still available. The reason I'm sharing this is basically.. I don't have 5 grand. If I did.. I'd be on my way to Lenoir without a doubt... you can also see it on carsforsale.com or CarGurus.com ... I have no affiliation with any of them. Hmm

Sure you are. Highlight the URL in the address bar like you are going to copy a text and then copy it. Paste it in the body here and it will automatically turn into a link. But I think you know that already!

I was going to say the pictures are not sharp and the front seat doesn't look that great but the accident put the nail in the coffin of won't touch it.

Classic old person tooling around FL car , couple of minor bumps.

Dealer didn’t pay more than 2500 for it, so that’s your negotiating space.

Hey all.. yeah. Wasn't trying to post a lemon. I was looking at the numbers. Didn't look at the car-fax. I don't have that luxury. Most if not all of the wagons that year are over 150,000 and still over priced. What kinda accident was it MO VO? .. wondering. I just like to buy a decent wagon where the driveline hasn't been rung out.. eh trying to help. An offering for the poor.. you guys get that , right? Peace..

I have purchased a lot of cars over the years and had the opportunity to paint an old 68-70 Ford panel van with my mechanic friend. His dad use to own a body shop. That being said it is very difficult to find a nice vehicle. In the late 70's the other mechanic told me when we buy used cars we are buying someone's else problem.

Of course the problems may not always be major but whoever is selling has something causing them to sell it. That being said good deals can be had even with problematic cars. It's a matter how much you are willing to spend besides time and effort.

Click the link below and you'll see it has been damaged twice, taking turns with the rear area and potentially quarter panel. Hard to say if it was hard impact or scraps without the pictures. The paint is not that shiny in the rear quarter area, no depth. Could have blend it forward from the bumper?

Looks like Single Owner and timely maintenance.
