1995 SL1
Default Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Here is a good Craigslist joke of the day.... $4500 for an SL1!

http://norfolk.craigslist.org/cto/2776943741.html

2002 Saturn SL1 - $4500 (Virginia Beach)

Great running vehicle. Has 97,000 miles. Only selling it because it is too small for us. Call


It's rare to see a decent deal on a Saturn around this area. I'd love to find a low miles twin cammer to replace the SL1, but it's just not going to be easy.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Must be one doozy of a reverse slam; enough to push the car back through time. That's a gen-2 interior.

I'm willing to bet neither pic is of the actual car. I've seen postings for Gen2 sedans that say "not my actual car, but looks just like this one" and the pic is clearly an L series......

For an SOHC automatic, with a very interesting qualification wrt. the mileage? That's at best a so-so deal. And since when does having a title constitute a selling point? Would you buy a car other than for parts donation without a title?

Considering KBB has it for $2700 in very good cond. I would say its a good buy.
Why is it so many people poo poo at the price of a car. Sure, you can find a steal of a deal out there once in a while , but for most part I find KBB to be very accurate. If this car is in very good condition, and I was looking, I would hand him the 1700 and and feel pretty good about the purchase.

That's nearly my exact car, year, color, options, etc. I bought it with 110k for considerably more than that (yes, I overpaid and regret it). So the price is a good one, I think.

The fact that they mention "have title" right in the headline is actually more concerning then helpful... Why would someone feel the need to say that? Because someone might think it was stolen..? Or possibly to avoid the headaches of a bank-has-title-because-I-owe-money-on-it situation, I suppose.

Seems to be a common practice in Houston to say they have title in hand. Not sure the reason. Maybe to inform people that they are ready to sell and that there is nothing preventing it. There are lots of people apparently in Houston who own cars and don't have the title for it for whatever reason. There is a guy who actually advertises in the same section on how they can get you a title cheap for your car.

That, plus the "ODOMETER reads....." qualification doesn't exactly give one the warm-fuzzies.
