Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):

It was on and off the market for 6 months as the kid was still driving it around started at $22k and slowly dropped till about $18k, then i got interested. Take your time, do your research on this car, I had a spiral notebook filled with notes. Know what you are getting into, in terms of maintenance and cost. I did not have a PPI done, cause my dad and i knew what to look for.

Do not rush the sale, let them sit for a week or two after checking the car out, call them up and start negotiating, much easier to do so on phone than in person. Do not low ball them, don't expect to get more than 10-15% off the car if that. Start there and have them come down, if possible have them throw the first number out. Slowly work towards a price between your price and theirs. For example, i had them take $500 off for the rear tires straight up, then they were now at 17.5k. I then throw out 16.5k, and we go back and forth until we reached the middle number $16,750. Bring up concerns with the car, mention that you'd buy it right now for this price to help ease them into it. I was fortunate enough for them to be as flexible as they were, and i didn't have to walk away.
