It really depends. If you see it online marked $0, they want you to inquire. Dealerships sometimes have online special prices (lower) than if you walk into the dealership and check out the same car in person. Its best to check out the car you want online to get an accurate price range and see if they have it advertised for a specific price. You then could make an appointment and mention where you saw it. Old listed arent always honored and usually will say prices subject to change. As for an individual party, they technically can ask what they want even if different from original price. You dont see it too often if the posting isnt old, but sometimes typos can happen or they seek more if KBB/Black List/ or Autotrader report the cars worth going up in value.
