      You can definitely find a great deal on a “new” used car right now. My

      husband is owner of a Nissan dealership and people are walking in and

      dropping their keys on his desk because they just cannot afford the

      payments anymore. I know he says that they have around 100 repo. cars

      a month. Just research your price VERY well. Every new Armada that

      he sells is $15,000 profit for him. So don’t be fooled by great deals.
