If a car GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Elk Mound WI 54739 seller takes the time to tell you that the body of the car is in good shape, they should take the two seconds it takes to type “interior too.” This may be a sign that the minivan you are about to buy has crayons melted to the seats.

This is a Great Deal – Rarely will a Craigslist seller say this; in most cases, they What Are the Advantages of Searching for a Used Car Online? GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Elk Mound WI 54739 are just trying to convince themselves that they are asking a fair price when they aren’t.

A Good Car for Parts – This car may run, but it isn’t in drivable condition. Likely, it wouldn’t be able to pass an inspection. Although you can use these cars for parts, they are basically junk, but “a good car for parts,” sounds a lot better than “junk car for sale.”

From North Carolina or Another Southern State – You will see this phrase GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Elk Mound WI 54739 used a lot in the Northeast. In most cases, the seller just relocated from down South and is now trying to sell their car in the Northeast.

Passed Inspection Last Year – When this phrase is used, the seller is basically trying to say “the vehicle did GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Elk Mound WI 54739 pass inspection last year, but I don’t know about this year because I am not going to try.” It might be because the seller bought a new car or because they fear the vehicle will not pass.

Truck Has a Few Dings – “Hey, I got into a couple of accidents, but the truck still runs.” A few is the keyword; if the truck only had one small dent, the seller would say so. Since there is cosmetic damage, GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Elk Mound WI 54739 make sure you get a discount.

$6,000 or OBO – “Although this means best offer, it also means a realistic offer; so don’t contact me offering only $2,000.” It is funny, but some car sellers put in OBO when they are really only willing to lower their price by $50.
