No.

The car may be real but the price is bait to reel in a mark.

I was recently scammed by a low ball listing on CL. Long story but it starts with a low ball listing. Very comprehensive , sophisticated scam. Don’t go there !!

Does not matter what the plate says, these are likely photos pirated from some other for sale add lost in history. If you are curious or just want to make sure, go ahead and respond - no harm. But as soon as any slightly unusual circumstances develop, like “posting this for my aunt” or “ car not here, it’s in xxxx” or whatever, then you will know.

Like already, notice the emphasis on the light lenses? Think that a bit odd? Not if you are just snatching some portion of an old listing to fill out your fake CL add.

If it were real it would have sold within hours, if not less. The fact that the ad is still up is evidence of it being a scam.

I really like the descriptions of the standard features as if they were unique to this car... surprised they didn't mention vinyl seats, synthetic carpet and glass made from real silica... not plastic.

Easiest way to not get scammed on craigslist, is only look at your city, or within a 2 hour drive from your city. If the car is real you can say, "I'll be there in 20 mins, or 2 hours" . So there is no way you can get scammed because there is no reason to ever send money, if you can't put your hands on it, don't think about buying it.
