I guess it'll help cut down on the spam ads but still sorta sucks for us guys who just want to sell a car.

If you cannot afford $5 for an ad you need to re-evaluate your entitled life.

Interesting. I don't recall the other parenthetical stuff either. Where am I supposed to get my used p*rn now?

With FB marketplace now, time to call CL cars for sale dead.

CL is half of what it was 3 years ago. $5 isn't worth it with all the tire kickers, low ballers, and scammers. For $5 if they filtered out the junk it might be worth it and make it more like the old paper classifieds page, but at this point its a death sentence.

$5 isn't the problem, its still cheap, its just another hurdle to jump over and isn't worth it.

Maybe my cars will just identify as boats and farm equipment.

I have noticed more and more used car dealers bombarding the site with their used car ads. Cheap pricks can't spring for a legitimate ad in the local newspaper.
I've always been reluctant to place ads on CL due to the amount of scammers and time wasters.

Exactly. It's hardly worth the way it is now. Put in the effort to compose an ad, take pictures, post your phone number online only to get trampled with junk calls and tire kickers.
