Maybe he means "turbo" in the noun sense?
.. "Hey Turbo, heres a car for you"...

or "SEC for sale, "Turbo"...?

He could be from New Jersey

Gen I euro though-- at least there's hope for it to be a nice example... wonder what's really under the hood?

Lay people are f-tards when it comes to cars.

He is likely calling it "turbo" because it is faster than any other appliance he has owned.

Or he stuck "turbo" on the advert to get some mouth breathing, flat billed kid's attention.

I'm not saying this is absolutely the case in this instance, but don't attribute malice to stupidity. (my attempt to not be completely cynical - in a cynical way)

If you are interested in the car ignore everything the owner says and do your own checks as appropriate.

Not one interior pic? Why some sellers never bother to post interior pics is beyond me. Doesn't matter how nice the paint or wheels are..if the interior sucks..and that's the part of the car I am mostly in..I'm not buying it.

I get concerned for another reason, car is in Colorado Springs, but the phone number you call is a Tampa area code. Something smells funny here.
