My daughter is going to commute to college this year and need to buy her a car.

I know there are some really good deals on good cars out there and are looking to buy a sound pre-owned.

Don't know if we should buy a certified from a dealership or privately owned.

Money is tight, have around $6,000 to spend. Don't want to take on a car loan right now.

Any Zoner know someone or have any advice?

Jon

cash for clunkers. Get an old truck turn it in for 4500 add your 6000 and get a stripped down tiny little car for 11k. I think I have to help pay for it so go ahead.

You must have active registration and insurance in place for the previous 12 months in order to trade a vehicle on that program. Can't just grab a car from the corner and trade it.

Get in touch with patrick lockwood @ mark mitsubishi off of 47 ave and glendale. He has taken care of several people on this web site. I have bought a couple of vehicles from him and it was no b.s and the best price right up front.

That would be sweet though,... go by a $1k car to turn in for $4500.

Here are the stipulations

  1. New vehicle cannot retail for more than $45,000.
  2. New vehicle can be purchased or leased.
  3. Purchased or leased vehicle must be a new vehicle.
  4. Trade-in vehicle cannot be older than 25 years old.
  5. Trade-in vehicle must have been owned for at least one year by the purchasing party.
  6. Discount is determined by the difference between the combined fuel economy of the vehicle that is traded in and that of the new vehicle. If that difference is greater than ten, then a $4500 discount will be applied. If the fuel economy difference is more than 4 but less than ten, the discount is $3500.
  7. Only one discount per person can be used.
  8. The discount is not considered income for the purchaser of the vehicle, although state and/or local taxes may apply. Consult a tax adviser for details.
  9. Upon purchase, the buyer will need to provide proof of insurance and ownership of the vehicle for the last year and clear title.
  10. Credit Union financing can make this deal even sweeter! Check out our great new auto rates and get pre-approved before you shop.
