      12.0pt;font-family:Arial;”>Check out for cars in your area. My hubby
      listed my DD18 car yesterday morning and within ½ hour someone offered the full
      asking price, sight-unseen, knowing full well that it doesn’t run and
      needs over $5000 worth of work. Hubby said there were tons of cars there, but
      he doesn’t want to deal with that when buying DD’s new car.

      Personally, I prefer to buy used cars from private
      people who are beyond anal about their cars. They tend to maintain them
      very well. Always have it checked out by a mechanic you
      trust. Pay for the full diagnostic (or have the seller pay for part or
      all of it).

      It is worth finding out what you are facing.

      Don’t tell them how much you are willing to pay.

      Do research online. Try, consumer reports (gives
      history/recommendations) – the car issue is out right now. Call your
      local bank for a price too, even though you are paying cash.

      They know
      prices too.

      was involved in a

      wreck. The one involved in the wreck is a 1982 chevrolet full size

      truck. I can still drive it; it has been wrecked on one side all the

      way down. The insurance company made it a salvage vehicle. I will be

      getting around $10,250.00 from the insurance company. I have no

      experience buying a used vehicle. The ones we have have been passed

      down from family members. I will have only the money from the insurance

      company ($10,250.0) to buy a vehicle and plan to pay cash for it. I

      have no extra money to make payments. Is it better to buy from an

      individual that owns the vehicle he is selling or to buy from a car

      dealer? Will the car dealers give you a discount for paying cash and

      how much would the taxes, etc. I would have to pay extra for from a

      dealership? I live in N.C. Any advice anyone can give me will be

      greatly appreciated.
