12.0pt;font-family:Arial;”>Check out Craigslist.com 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.

Buying a used vehicle
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 bluebook.com, 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.
I am looking for a used vehicle to replace one that
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
