Has anyone ever bought a seized auto? How does it work? Am I just asking for a peice of junk this way or can you really find good deals? Finally, can you recommend a good service?

Thanks in Advance,
Bill

hi bill,
i worried about it too. but last year my son turned 16 and he wanted a little blow-about car he could drive around town. he didn't have a lot to spend so i promised to match whatever money he could come up with. it still wasn't much he he found a deal on this website - http://tinyurl.com/2j2azj
he got a great little 8 year old toyota for a lot less than market.
it went so well that i bought myself a used grand cherokee (i'm a sucker for jeeps) this past spring from them. both deals worked out great.

Just buy an off-rental Chevy Malibu or Impala and you can get a low mileage car for under $10K. If you listen to the others on here, they are great cars and built to last a lifetime.

Or go to eBay and pick up a $30k+ Buick LaKern for about $12k with less than 20k miles. Stay away from Camrys and Accords they are way to high on resale. You get what you pay for....those high resale cars like accord and camry last forever and you will pay for quality. So stay away if you are looking for a CHEAP car. Go with a Malibu.

Ohhh please. Show me a Lucerne with under 100k miles for 12 grand. You are correct in telling him to stay away from camry and accord though, camry is very unreliable (50% reliability rate) and accord will start to rust within 3 years if you live anywhere north of maryland. If you are looking for a cheap car that will outlast a camry of the same year and wont rot out like an accord, go with the pre-07 malibu, but steer clear of that 3.1...

All you get with subscriptions to websites is a list of local auctions, NOT online auctions. Very few offer that, and those that do, there are few cars under acceptable price range. If you wanna get a real deal, go to an auction. Talk about cheap cars, but you never really know what youre bidding on...

I have never been to an auto auction but I have herd from some that have been to these auctions and my family member bought a 2005 BMW for four thousand dollars and he said that if he would have went to a dealer he would have a 800. dollar payment every month. I really would like to know how all of this works I need a car but I don't want payments and I don't to buy a cat to where I have to put a lot of money into either.

Hi guys, to you from St.Persburg, Russia.
Buying a seized or damaged car isn't so dangerous if you're a handy & experienced driver.
But if you don't know much about cars, better stay away from this business. You might have to spend much more on repairing the vehicle than you originally intended or you might simply get frauded. On the other hand it's possible to catch a nice late-model car at a little price. In any case, get ready to face some difficulties both when seeking the right item and while fixing the problem.
Thanks for reading! Bye!

Nice locator they've got here!
I'm here in Russia, but for some reason it puts me into Belarus. Funny thing!
Good luck & safe ride!..
