Looks pretty typical to me though good shape, but wouldn't doubt it has over 200k on the clock either though.

Not really. Seems like the average price for one of these in decent condition. He doesn't list the mileage, which either means he has no idea how to sell a car, or is scared to list it.

And it's ALMOST perfect. Hell, mine is ALMOST perfect, and I only paid 2K.

Listing mileage would eliminate a lot of tire kickers, especially if it's high mileage.

When the opening line on a car ad begins with " great sound system " and the miles are'nt listed I usually grin and go to the next ad. Jim

I called his number on Tuesday or Wednesday (forget which). Number is not in service. I almost flagged it, but got busy looking for a car.

EDIT: This is not the seller with bad contact information. I apologize. He is probably a great guy and completely truthful.
This is the bad ad: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/1487987736.html
