Who knew selling a car privately would be such a pain in the ass? lol
It's much more of a pain to sell via third party.

I personally think you're nuts for requesting/expecting cash. Talk about a safety risk! A bank check is going to be just as good... you can call the bank before you hand over the car and verify funding. If it bounces, you just report it as a stolen car Only half-joking, no way any respectable dealership would risk that kind of situation.
