Click the Cars+Trucks link under the For Sale section of your local Craigslist page. Choose All Cars and Trucks, By-owner only, or By-dealer only, depending on the type of seller you prefer. Browse all of the available options, or enter search criteria on the left to narrow the options.
Search options on the cars and trucks page include minimum and maximum price, make and model, model year, odometer reading and features of the vehicle. Analyze the ad to find a seller who is more likely to be honest. Poor grammar, few details or grainy pictures may be signs to keep looking. Call to get more details on the vehicle before meeting the owner.
