Dragon2U said:I used to live in CA not long ago so know all too well the cost of buying, inspecting, and insuring a car in another state. Yes, GA has no tax on private vehicle transfers, not sure how long that will last but it is an incentive to buy from a private party. Not sure what youre saying about adding $1700 to the selling price, if you pay it normally then it's not a big deal, I mention it to remind those that don't pay tax in private transactions that this is a private sale and ultimately less cost than a dealer.
Dealers here charge upwards of $500 for a "doc fee", I think that it is totally insane! CA had dealers doing the same thing but the Gov started capping it at $25, or at least it was that way when I left.
I really don't know where all these cheap SSR's are. I look in cars.com, autotrader, and other sales sites and the 03-04's are running at what I am asking, some quite a bit more for more mileage and less equipment. Within 200 miles of my address I am the second lowest SSR for sale at cars.com with 19 available. I am higher by only $500. I checked pricing in CA today just to see what they were in my old stomping grounds, lowest price on cars.com for 30 miles around 95993 (where used to live) is $30,000 for an SSR with twice the mileage at a dealer. I know EBay has a few priced in my range and lower, personnally I have not found a decent deal on EBay, when I have driven hundreds of miles and inspected prior to purchase they were not as advertised. I know they are not all bad though, I have not had luck though.
I realize that not everyone wants all the equipment, if you're interested in a lower price I am more than willing to keep some of the options to offset the cost, make a realistic offer. Or you can take all the options and sell off what you don't want and make some cash on the deal.
I don't mean to sound harsh if that's the way it sounds, I appreciate the response, I just don't know where all these deals are because they aren't around here or within several hundred miles of here. I really don't want to give it away as it really is a nice well cared for truck that I took a long time to find, it's not a dealer auction vehicle or an abused vehicle that I find often when looking at used cars here. I do see some nice classic cars in Texas at reasonable prices and one of these days I might get one. I think that your state has definately got the market for buyers.
Good luck in your search, if you're serious about mine but it's a little out priced PM me your best deal and what options you don't want and maybe we can work something out.
