I think we need to see the car, I think you should check the carfax, I think you need to get a professional inspection, I think you couldn't possibly be more vague if you tried although I wouldn't like to be proven wrong.

Check the value against nada.com but the pure truth of the matter is, if it is too good to be true it usually is.

And this sounds too good to be true.

I guarantee you that that car has very VERY serious issues.

Take it for a professional inspection to be sure, but my bet is that the motor doesn't run quite right and he has transmission problems.

Take a good look: that is what a car driven by a retard looks like.

Also, @ $3500 premium sound system. That head unit is $100 and that's some cheap-ass no-name sub. $350, MAYBE.

Another rule of thumb, craigslist has more rip offs than it does deals.

Next the person selling will want to ship you the car for free, then they will want you to wire some good faith money to their cousin in nigeria, who can't even spell nigeria.

Moral of the story: Don't buy cars on craigslist.

Take it to a mechanic or shop that specializes in Subarus, tell them you want a pre-sale inspection, give them $100, wait for results.

Please read the car buying FAQ as you are just randomly looking at things on craigslist and do not seem to have any idea of what you want or how to get it.

And just by looking at the ads, the one on NASIOC seems a lot more credible than joe blow who screwed a sub to the back of the trunk and thinks it cost $3500.

i would get the one on here. i just put a $1000 system in my car and its much nicer then the one in the craigslist ad, and it seems like that one is owned by a kid, so it was probably beaten to hell.

Mileage is over twice what I'd be considering to buy. I would not touch that with a stick.
