Well ... Craig's List ... it's 'buyer beware' ... no surprise whatever it was wasn't as 'pristine' as it was advertised. Now as for leaving a car running unattended for 45 minutes ... isn't there a law against leaving a motor vehicle unattended while running? What did they expect? Oh well, you can't cure stupid!

No car should be left running for 45 minutes. It's bad for the car it's horrendous for the environment and is like pouring money down the drain. I'm sorry the car got stolen but cars should not be left running for an extended period.
