They could pull that name of if they pronounce it Hay-la-u-jalay. I doubt their target base would even notice.

So finally someone picks up the landline. Sold! Holy shite does anyone delete their damn autotrader ads or what? More importantly: what's with this luck? I give a smoke to the same bag lady every single workday..where my karmic points? Lol.

Two '96 broncos and an '89 blazer. How is this a hot market? I guess other oddballs out there like these dirtcheap beaters. Ain't many of'em. I'm outta old Ontario trucks of this vintage for now frown.gif

The Bentley SUV is surprisingly small in person. Or maybe it seems that way because the Flying Spur, CGT, and Mulsanne are so damn big.

why not just look on Craigslist etc instead of autotrader?

or car lots, which for some reason is where my true bastard emerges. i'm not at all a jerk, yet i wholeheartedly embrace the fun of breaking salesmen.

Autotrader can work in some instances from what I've heard. However on decent cars, not a chance. I used their 'VIP' program which has a money back guarantee - which worked out. From the one guy I actually met for the P85D, felt he just wanted a joy ride. Another offered me 60k - it had about 5k miles and was spotless. His claim was gasoline is less than $2.50 a gallon and it was devalued because of that.

Tesla gave me 87k on a straight drop off and 97k if I got the P90D ludy. No bullshit negotiating. They have some algorithm so everyone gets the same deal.

Autotrader and those sites attract the lowest of the low.

plus if you ad on auto trader you get hella come-ons from the consignment lots.

I dunno. CL and Autotrader I've found is just like an apartment: you find dual listings.

Yeah, it was terrible - I would like to meet the guy who proposed 60k on a 2015 optioned out (exception of no rear facing child seats or cold weather package) P85D and thought that was a starting point.

If I had a lower priced car, I'd use CL maybe (though that might be bad as well) and on a somewhat higher end one, anything other than cars.com, autotrader, etc. Worthless sites that waste your time imo.

Dang it: I missed the Wrangler discussion. I had a 1992 Wrangler for several years (bought it new). It had the leaf spring suspension and was a rough ride.

Now we have a 2013 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited (four-door). It has a coil-spring suspension and actually rides pretty nicely for what it is. It was relatively inexpensive and from what I have read the Wranglers hold their value quite well. It's a great road-trip vehicle and is quite capable off-road (certainly more capable than I am willing to try to exceed). We bought it new and have never had a single problem with it.

I'm interested to see what the upcoming wrangler pickups will look like. Also to see if they can get an engine in it that doesn't get abysmal fuel economy. I know they're not the most aerodynamic vehicles, but I feel like every time I go to the website to spec one out I get to the fuel economy figures and nope out of there.

92 Wrangler bought new, about a week old in this pic. I had to buy the additional rollbar pads as well as the radio later
