So, My Acura has not sold yet and I have been inundated with text messages and emails offering $3,000 to $4,000 cash today from lame inquires. At $4,650 firm, from $5,000, have I priced my car out of the sale to a new buyer or are must if not all people ignorant and opportunist scum trolling CL?

Your price is fine, just need to wait for a buyer that knows what they want. Also your CL ad comes off as very passive-aggressive which might be why you're getting a lot of troll inquires. Literally has all the things people meme car FS ads for.

DTvn- I do not disagree with you.

Unfortunately, over the years I have sold cars online and through CL and have been non-passage aggressive about my ad and gotten the same ignorant comments and text messages.

Most CL ads today for items sold by the owner are somewhat PA on the matter of low ball offers time wasters, etc....perhaps I went out of my way to highlight my feelings up front, looking at the glass half empty.

Too much information, sometimes less is more.

You're going to get lowballs regardless, this is craigslist we're talking about. I've sold a few cars and i've learned that you really have to be flexible with people. Not saying you are but your ad kind of makes you out to be a prude that people wouldn't want to deal with. Also agree with dopeboy, sometimes less is more. Getting a serious enough buyer to come see the car is the hard part but with all of the paperwork and knowledge you have on the car you shouldn't have any problem locking down a deal if the buyer has any type of sense. Give people a reason to come check out the car and hope that they fall in love when they see it in person.

I'd say delete the ad and re-post it so that the date resets, add a screenshot of KBB value and lose half of the maintenance stuff you have listed. I usually list my ads as "pretty firm on the price" but I only negotiate the price in person

Not quite sure how your post applies to me as I am an extremely diligent and caring owner of all my cars.

Car is better off with me than your average car buyer/owner.

Because if you do sell it to the average car owner, your meticulous TL maybe backslide.

If another Acura lover buys it, then its pristine legacy will continue.
