Car for sale: Is it too cheap?! Something wrong?

I came across an ad for a 2008 mustang bullitt, and its for sale for $14,000 with only 23,000km on it. Automatic. I read other listings for vehicles similar and they sell for $25,000 and up. This seems like a strange occurance, what do you think? Would there be something wrong with the car? (They have pictures of the exterior and interior and under the hood and it appears nothing wrong with it)

I'd love this car.

"something" is wrong with that car. It ran kilometers in the US, that is really weird, maybe it fell off a boat to europe ?

Run a carfax on the VIN number. If the car has a "rebuilt" title or "salvage" title, that means the car has been involved in an accident so bad that it would cost 75% or more of the value of the car to repair. In that case, it would be a bad idea to purchase the car. Usually these cars are fixed up in the cheapest way possible to make the car look good on the outside but is a mess under the hood, and are sold for cheap.

Take it and have a Mstr. Tech look it over for you, do a compression check and shake it down for you. With the way things are today, their just most likely trying to save their credit and get out from under an expensive toy. I always loved the Mustang, but people beat them into the ground and sell them. Be careful, have a professional look it over.

That's way too cheap for that car unless the guy / girl selling it beat the crap out of it, it's been in an accident, or something negative like that... maybe he just wants to be a nice guy and give someone a deal?
Some people are strange in ther own way. Remember 23000 miles driven hard and at the track every other weekend is more like 123000 miles driven normally.

Hi: Run a car-fax on it and a lien check. Then have a mechanic check it out. It may cost you a few bucks but it will be money well spentt if something is wrong.
That is a low price but the seller may just need fast cash.

Let me guess u saw it on Craigslist?

Contact the seller......... if he says he's overseas and will ship for free if u pay by eBay protection then the ad was bogus.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
