2007 on Ebay--would you buy a car from them?

Sorry... I just had to send this. Read the description from the sales rep starting in green. I had to read several times because I almost couldn't believe how bad it was.

Looking past the fact that he doesn't know how to spell Boxster or convertible, I don't think the price is too bad. There are only 5 '07 Boxsters with less than 15K mi for less than $34K across the nation on AutoTrader.

Pluses - still have factory warranty, not far from you to go look at it
Minuses - despite Leonard's opinion, this Box isn't what you'd consider loaded, but if these are the only options you "need", so what?

buying from a guy who can't spell - NEVER

Remember when you bought your last car and how many times you bragged to your friends how good the seller's English was! Quote: "Well, yes the car, so so, but man you should have listened to the salesguy citing from a "midsummer night's dream".

I mean you gotta draw the line somewhere.

My biggest concern would be that he's an independent dealer (and a small one judging by the fact that he only has 15 cars on his lot).

Where did he get the car? Auction is a likely guess. Why didn't a larger dealer jumnp on the car if it were so great?

I'm not saying it's a bad car, just asking questions that as a buyer, I would want a reasonable answer to.

Price seems OK, not great.

The add has the VIN, I'd find someone to run it through Carfax and see what it says.
