How can I find out when an ad was posted?

Asked by Apr 11, 2015 at 07:48 AM about the 2004 Ford Ranger 2 Dr XL Extended Cab SB

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I bought a Ford Ranger yesterday and after I got home I was looking at prices just to
see if I got a good deal.  I found my truck on your web site showing several thousand
dollars cheaper.  When I call the deal (well known) they said the ad was posted after I
purchased the truck as a gimmick to get customers in.  This does not sound right in
so many ways and I was trying to find out when the ad was really posted.  I am hoping
I will not have to get other people involved.

First, posting an ad for a vehicle that's already knowingly been sold is a "bait and switch" tactic. It's illegal!! Especially at a cheaper price!! If you saw the ad here I'd report the activity to cargurus' administration. I'd also report it to your local Office of Consumer Affairs. You can look at any ad on this site and see how long it's been up. You'll see something like "16 days on cargurus". HTH. -Jim
