    Better check your figures. If it is the LS, clean trade-in is around $11,500 and retail is $15000 according to NADA. Loan value is still around $11,000. I trust NADA over KBB. The dealerships and banks go off NADA.

    I wouldn't pay retail, but somewhere between trade and retail.

    I have a cap of $12,000 for anything I buy but these guys are all so proud of their trucks. Thanks for the tip to use NADA, will do.

    Cash is king. If you show up with 120 $100 dollar bills, it will peak their interest no matter what the price. (Within reason)

    Anytime I advertise on Craigslist, I always price high. That gives the customer room to talk me down and feel like they got a good bargain.

    I hear all that. Funny thing with me though, when these guys are asking $15,000 and I tell them $12,000 is my limit they get offended. :shrug: The one guy has had his truck for sale for two months now and still owns it.

    Offering and showing a lot of cash are two different things.

    I did KBB and NADA on same vehicle and they came out about the same, both 4k below the trucks price. But if that truck was listed at that price, it would have probably sold in a matter of hours..lol.
    Are you familiar with cargurus? they don't go below 1999 but, it shows "great deal" "good deal" etc compared to what they think cars "market value" should be, I don't know where they get market value though, trying to find out
