I'm selling both my car & my son's car on Craigslist, but I've got a question about listing something about mine.
My 2001 Toyota Corolla occasionally has the Check Engine light come on and it always shows a code 420 for the catalytic converter efficiency. My mechanic has said it probably needs the converter replaced (about $500), but another mechanic who handled fixing something on my door mentioned that on his daughter's Toyota (different model though) it actually was the sensor itself that needed replacing (about $150 fix). I haven't mentioned it in the ad yet, but I'm thinking I should just say it up front. When someone calls me (from the sign in the car) or emails me from Craigslist, I'm telling them this when talking about the car.
As I said, I'm inclined to go ahead and just add it up front. I'm guessing many of you will say likewise, but I thought I'd check with the wise folks here.
Also someone did email me today expressing interest and asked for the VIN #. After researching that, I saw that it's a fairly commonplace question and it was noted someone could just get it from a car if they were physically by it.
