CPO are expensive
Craigslist is weird. Never used it before.
Online random searches have led me to nowhere. Can someone recommend an agent or a dealership for used vehicles?

Location: Bay area.

      Thats high mileage for a 2016 european car. Prepare for expensive maintenance

      What would be the ideal car for under 10k?
      May 19
    • Yelp yhfthbf
      i think that’s normal for a used car. make sure you have it checked every 3-6 months for maintenance.

      also, that’s a perf negotiating point to bring the price towards 8k

      Get a used Civic or Corolla if you want something reliable.

    Another weird source. Please don't take it politically but it is a fact. Go find a Chinese student association in a big university near you. Their students mostly buy new cars and drive only a few years. When they are leaving, they want to get rid of them quickly. You can get good deals .

    Don’t just focus on the price. Depending on what kind of car you are looking for, research maintenance expenses and past recalls. How many past owners?

    A $12k car in good condition will be a better investment than an ok car at $9k in the long run

    My guy Hank hooked me up with my $950 civic. Check out local junk yards for some good deals, they have cars that still run sometimes. Just missing parts like part of the chassis, a window, a seat, etc.

    Buy from dealer, they do good inspection and will not sale if it has some major issue.
    Reliability is more important than VFM when buying old car.
