Are used cars that have been on car gurus for more than a month easier to negotiate a lower price?

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I  am looking at two 2014 Toyota's Corollas. One has been listed for 37 days,
the other over 200 days.
      Will the dealer be more willing to drop the price on those listed over 30 days
?    If a car has been listed for over 200 days does that mean there is
something wrong with it ?

Hard to answer that question. Yes, your right to assume the longer the car sits, the better the dealer is willing to negotiate a lower price. Doesn't mean something is wrong with it, maybe a color no one wants. But those numbers can be misleading on the ad. It could have been an ad that was re-listed or the car was sold a long time ago and the 200 days is false. Cargurus is a listing site and you can only compare and price so much online. It's when you get to the dealership to talk price and actually drive the vehicles that matters. You might not like the car that was sitting longer. Good Luck with your hunting and decision. As always I recommend once you pick a vehicle have it look over by your mechanic so they can check things before you buy it.
