Default Craigslist purchase.....any good?

Does anybody here use one of these gas grills? For $25.00 it seemed like a steal plus its one block away from me. I'm picking this up tomorrow. Can anyone vouch for this particular grills performance?

might have to cut copy paste this:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Totally agree there.
At that price, you could upgrade with some new grates, cast iron if you will.
Good luck with the purchase.

Have an identical one to it. Some of the shields above the burners seemed to rust away prematurely and had to replace the drip pan. BUT, it cooks well and does a good job.

You can easily order replacement parts from charbroils website.

In summery, I like mine, just had to replace a few parts.

Thanks everybody for your input! I figured it was a good deal but just needed some reassurance. Anybody interested in buying this off me for $100.00....?

Just kidding.
