why is listing info. often different from photos?

Asked by Apr 15, 2013 at 02:32 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

1 Answer


Sometimes the ad is so new, the dealer doesn't have the photos uplinked yet. The use a stock photo at this point, not the same car. If it sits on the lot for a week or two, they add the actual photos to help sell it.
