Got a Quick Question for a Car Dealer?

    True, true but while every new car is the same, every used car is different, (in terms of condition), so it's hard to say what is the "better buy".

    To exaggerate a little---a $15000 car in Maryland that needs tires and a timing belt change, if you include the shipping, is the equivalent of an $18,000 car in California that has good tires and doesn't need a timing belt.

    "well, going from CA to FLA is of course to the extreme. I was thinking more like drawing a circle for a day trip. As he noted, So Cal is certainly easy to do. Maybe north of San Fran? "

    Sacramento is a no-brainer. But you should look farther east. Reno is still withi a day's drive.

    I think there are bargains to be had in the Sacramento Valley, you know, Modesto, Fresno, that area.


  • Yes I agree that prices trend lower in the Sac and San Joaquin vallleys from what I see. They also have CarMax there for increased competition and we don't have CarMax in the Bay Area....yet.

    Have been there a few times lately and yesterday they gave me a trade figure of $7k for a '06 Civic LX with 47k on the clock and a few scrapes on the rear bumper due to the garage door. looked on and that price is for a "fair" vehicle though I think it's more of a "good" condition right cleans up real nice actually and the front seats have had covers on them since day 1. They have a price of $7850 for "good" condition. Understand though why Carmax gave me such a low number as the market is flooded with Civics so plan to either sell it privately or just keep it another year or two. Will have to price it there and also look at some other sites to see what to ask for it. Thinking $10k asking and take anyone with cash that offers $9k...don't want to be to greedy here. The car drives perfectly and there's no need to swap vehicles, it's just that I'd love something a bit more lux!
