    I'm 17 and I am getting my permit next week. I have looked nearby me and found several cars that fit within my price range but I am unsure which one I should get. They are all $1000 and under. Some of them have cosmetic issues but they don't have anything mechanically wrong listed about them. I don't need anything fancy, just something to learn in and get used to driving with. The choices are: 2000 Hyundai Elantra with 168k miles, 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis with 170k miles, 2004 Dodge Neon with 198k miles, 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 200k miles, 2001 Nissan Maxima with 184k miles, 2003 Hyundai Sonata with 180k miles, and a 2002 Ford Explorer with 200k miles. Are any of these good deals or should I keep looking? Any suggestions for a teen first car? Thanks for your help!

    I recently moved to central Florida and I have been driving an old Toyota Camry but I am looking to upgrade to a newer car soon. What I am looking for in a car is a stylish hatchback but I need it to be reliable. Out here it rains a lot and is very hot and humid so I figured I should get a car with reliable electronics that won't fail easily. The car should also have a reliable air con system because that is usually blowing 100 percent of the time I am driving. What I have found to be a good option so far is a 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback. Does anyone know how reliable these are/if they have problems with the electronics? Or any advice on a better car to buy?

    Best answer: There is a nationwide auction company that sells them in many areas. I think its copart.

    Many of the salvage auctions are only opened to rebuilders & salvage yards.

    But, rebuilding wrecked cars is not as easy as you may think. Plus getting a rebuilt title can be a pain and cost a hundred or so. They have to come out & inspect it. And a turn signal being out can have them turn it down.

    A large city near me has a huge auction every so often of cars usually left on the side of the road.

    Most don't have keys and most are sold to salvage yards for parts. Some are wrecked, others just broke down & left. I had a car stolen, police told me where it was. I went to look at it and determined it wasn't worth the tow fee to get it out because it was wrecked. And it was crap before it was wrecked. Never would have thought a lousy $600 car would be stolen.

  • Is owning a small car dealership worth it?

    Best answer: Buying cars is not a problem. I used to go to at least 2-3 dealer auctions a week. One was open to the public too but 90% of transactions were dealer to dealer.

    Best answer: Buying cars is not a problem. I used to go to at least 2-3 dealer auctions a week. One was open to the public too but 90% of transactions were dealer to dealer.

    Selling enough of them at a big enough profit is the problem many face.

    Very few people can make even $500 a month selling cars off the internet.

    This means you need a car lot. Car lots are expensive. Employees are expensive. Overhead is expensive.
    Garage liability insurance is expensive.

    97% of the dealers you compete against have much more experience and money than you do.

    I somehow made a living at it way back when for a dozen or so years.

  • Why are the same certified model car with silimiar milage more expensive than others?

    Looking to buy a used certified BMW 320i or 328d. I see that some dealers have the same model, year and similar milage but one would be priced like $3000 to $4000 more than the other one.

And some have 40,000 miles on it and it'll be priced more than a same model, year but with 20,000 miles. Is there anything wrong with these lower priced lower milage ones? Do they know that there's some issues with it so they price it according? Posted this an hour or so ago but for some reason everyone thought I was comparing a certified with a non certified. To clarify what I mean was a few dealerships had the same car (not the same car at different dealerships. THE SAME CAR model at the same dealership), model and year, they are both certified but one would have less milage and cost less and the other would have more milage but cost more. All the vehicles I'm looking at are certified only. I see one for $20,000 with only 19,000 miles but another one for $24,000 with 34,000 miles on it. They are both certified and both at the same dealership. I just looked at the highlights and they have the same options. I would rather go with the cheaper and lower milage one but scared they priced it lower because it has more issues? Or what other reason would there be for this price difference? Both certified, same year, and same model..

  • How to get out of a used car (as is) contract?

    My family bought a used car about 2 weeks ago (please note that we are not car experts and do not know what to look at or know if something is wrong).

    My family bought a used car about 2 weeks ago (please note that we are not car experts and do not know what to look at or know if something is wrong). It had failed DEQ the first time and we took it back to the dealers who said they would fix the problem and run it through DEQ for us again. It had failed a second time. We asked for the CEL to be fixed because it would not turn on when doing the self test. However, they ignored our request and fixed the fuel cap light (replaced the gasket). Something seemed wrong, so we went to Ford (they have been very realizable for us) to have it checked. We found out that they had messed with the car greatly and it won't pass DEQ and other things without extreme payments. It is not worth keeping the car and we want a refund. How do we get out of the contract (as is/with an arbitrator)? Firstly, it is illegal to sell a car that won't pass DEQ. Secondly, they lied and manipulated us to get our money and the car out of their hands. And lastly, we don't have the money nor trust with the damage done to the vehicle. If any advice or recommendations, it would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Every time you are ready to spend any money think if you could save that money instead and make do without. Cut your cell usage, cut you cable programming, cut your entertainment budget and dining out budget - it is called sacrificing - works well and becomes a habit after awhile.

    'need' = want
