I totally disagree with you. I sell and buy on Craigslist quite a bit. Just buyer beware as anywhere else. I don't dump any problems i have on Craigs list. I TELL THE TRUTH.

Screw CL and Dealers, go straight to the source!

First thing is to locate the bus you "like" - if it is advertised on craigslist, chances are it will be advertised elsewhere on the internet. Just search the same post "heading" on google to find the bus advertised elsewhere, google the address, then go check it out unannounced. Look at other equipment on the lot first. Don't be so eager to run to the bus when you see it. If the bus is advertised at $6,500 make sure you have a method to pay it right away, even if you need to get a personal loan prior to arrival. If you're certain it is the bus you want, ask the owner "hypothetically speaking", Would they accept selling it to you with TTL (tags, title, and license plates) out the door for perhaps 2K lower than the advertised price, TODAY? If you don't have the means to pay for it right away, don't bother haggling the price lower than advertised. It will just put you in a bad position to begin with.

Before asking to lower the price, take as much time as you can looking at the engine oil, P/S oil, and transmission fluids, undercarriage etc. Inspect it like you want it and then wheel and deal. It doesn't hurt to ask to lower the price if you are willing to buy it ASAP.
