Craigslist is fine. Nothing wrong with it, many people put cars they are selling on autotrader on Craigslist as well. Just depends on who is selling it mostly. It's free to list on usually, so everyone uses it.

I'd rather a used car via private party than any type of dealer every time.

Most dealerships will still give a warranty on used cars they sell, even if it's for 90 days. Buying from a private party is at your own risk. I would suggest taking the car to a trusted mechanic to see if their are any problems before you purchase.

Edit: Seems like everyone's already mentioned the Pro & Cons.
Why did you even reply? What you went through is not a likely scenario and is not a situation he'll be going through.

you my friend, missed the boat entirely on this one.
