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.
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.
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.
