Craigslist funnies. . .

(a friend of mine in another city sent me this. .. guess he's in the market or thinks I might be lol)

This is why you should always check the VIN when buying a car, or even driving a good distance to look at one:

2003 SUBARU OUTBACK LIKE NEW GARAGE KEPT

Posted in the FSBO section but sure does read like a dealer wrote it.

Quote:
03 SUBARU LEGACY OUTBACK ALL WHEEL DRIVE, THIS IS A GREAT CAR THAT IS IN GREAT CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT! THIS CAR DOES EVERYTHING RIGHT. I WILL NEVER OWN ANY OTHER BMW,AUCRA,NISSAN,TOYOTA,HONDA.MERCEDES,SAAB OR AUDI. THE CAR HAS ALL THE RELIABILITY OF A SUBARU WITH ALL THE LUXURY STYLING OF A MERCEDES.. THERES A REASON SUBARU HAS THE BEST ALL WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM ON THE PLANET, THEY SIMPLY DO EVERYTHING RIGHT. THIS CAR COMES WITH EVERY OPTION INCLUDING.

POWER WINDOWS
POWER LOCKS
POWER SEAT
TILT WHEEL
CRUISE CONTROL
ALLOY RIMS
COLD AC
HOT HEAT
TIRES ARE VERY GOOD

THIS CAR IS IN ABSOLUTELY BRAND NEW CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT, NOT A SCRATCH OR A DENT, NEVER BEEN IN A ACCIDENT. THE INTERIOR IS LIKE NEW NOT A TEAR, RIP OR STAIN, NOT EVEN A WEAR MARK ANYWHERE. THIS CAR GETS 30 MILES PER GALLON.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A CLEANER USED CAR. TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF,

GARAGE KEPT. NADA BOOK VALUE 6200 MUST SELL 4600 OR BEST OFFER
A 2003 you say?



Ok, nice looking car. . .very clean. . but what's this?



That, folks is a 2000-2001 center console. No 2nd cupholder. Ok, lockmedic, you're just being picky. Maybe they replaced it with the downgraded version. . .that's possible, right?

Only if they did the front bumper too, because this:



. . . is a 2000-2002 front bumper.

Every option? Orly?

Doesn't even have cold weather package. This is as base as they come, save for the automatic trans.

Also 30 mpg? Does (s)he drive downhill everywhere?

I'm hoping this is someone who is just confused as to what car they have (maybe they inherited it), but it could very well be intentional. A year off I could understand, but 2-3 is pushing it.

Caveat emptor!

I seem to get a lot of "will xx fit in my car?" emails. . . I'm not the authority on everything Subaru, so I very well may tell you the wrong answer as there's nobody else to check me. Please search or ask via the forums first. . .when I answer you via email, it never gets posted and nobody else can confirm or refute my answer.

Just a typo, but still good. Or maybe a subtle hint at bad head gaskets.

Frankenstein H6

Please copy and paste the your links, as they expire on Craigslist.



If you want to see a real suspect Subaru look here, been on Craiglist for months the car with the ever falling price (what is in this car now? what was in this car before?): https://newjersey.craigslist.org/cto/4233358415.html

Ad contents 2003 Subaru Outback VDC 4D Wagon H6. Very convenient and reliable station wagon... with automatic transmission and 6 cylinders this car has lots of power perfect for your daily errands! =) Family car ready to take your family to the next adventure! 151K miles mostly highway miles, the body shape of the car is in good condition.... my price is negotiable to a reasonable offer!

If they don't come thorough I may upload the photos later.

This one is not so funny. It is sad. For the seller and the buyer. It looks like a good parts car, as it seems to be a Frankenstein Monster.

It is not a VDC, as no VDC off button or Onstar.
.
No under the hood pics, so I don't know if it is a H6. It has a H6 grill and hatch badge.
No VDC or LL Bean badges, on the front fenders, if the fenders were replaced then they could have left these off as the replacements are a few bucks from Subaru.

It has transplanted base model seats, no leather. Carpets look new, no mats.
No Wood steering wheel.

It has a subaru single disc audio system without tweets. It has a auto climate control though.

So I don't know, is it a flood, a wreck, or both. It looks like it was worked over, allot.

Who wants to fly into Newark Airport and give this one the smell test?
Its in North East Jersey around the Oranges. (... well if you like farts you can smell the sulfur meadowlands swamp gas too).

Actually, that's not weird at all. It looks totally unmodified to me. For 2003, there was a base H6. They didn't make many, but there are some out there. This is one of them. The only inaccuracy is that they listed VDC in the listing, which it would not have.

I don't think the body is in "good condition" like they say, though. It appears to be missing one fog light and certainly has some scrapes and dents. Interior looks beautiful, though.

I have seen some cloth interior 6 cyl's. . . never paid attention to if they had auto climate or not. Surprised me, too as I hadn't seen one with the 3.0 without it being a beaner or VDC.

Definitely not a VDC unless they've swapped the fenders.


This one is pretty cool:

but not $19k cool and BYOE. (bring your own engine). Given that it's in Nashville I wouldn't be surprised if that's the same folks that are importing the Subaru diesel powerplants.

Keep 'em coming! But yeah, gotta quote them, links will expire.
