IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 26, 2002

Kelley Blue Book, the trusted resource for used and new car information, invites consumers to use its name and seal to help sell their vehicles.

As of today, consumers can log on to www.kbb.com, research the suggested private party Blue Book value of their vehicle and then quickly and easily print a personalized "FOR SALE" sign with the recognized Kelley logo.

When consumers decide to sell their cars, they turn to Kelley Blue Book to determine the fair, private party value. In July, consumers generated more than 10 million private party pricing reports on cars they were looking to sell or buy. As a champion of the transaction, the company now offers this simple tool to assist owners in selling their cars quickly and easily.

"With this new window sticker, sellers can compare their asking price to the trusted Kelley Blue Book value," said Stephen Henson, vice president of marketing, business development. "It helps build credibility and trust with any potential buyer."

The window sticker is topped with the words "FOR SALE" in large 30 point type, so that drivers at a car-length's distance can read the sign. The Kelley Blue Book seal and suggested private party value follows, letting potential buyers know the seller had done their homework.

The sign also includes the year, make, model, mileage and condition of the car, along with a list of the vehicle's standard and upgraded features. In the center of the sign is a large box with a dollar sign for consumers to write in the amount they are seeking for the vehicle.

To print a personalized window sticker, go to kbb.com and click on the 'Private Party Values' link on the home page. Quickly select the year, make, model and condition of the car to be sold. When the final pricing report is displayed, just click on the 'Print For Sale Sign' link.

The Evolution of Car Buying

Car Selling Websites

In early 2015, I began hearing rumors of the new Ford Focus RS. I had been toying with the idea of buying a new daily driver, since my bright idea to daily driver a Lamborghini was not turning out the way I had planned. The rumors slowly became facts, and the car hit many of the things I was looking for. It was fast (I can track it!), it had all wheel drive (for the Seattle rain), it had four doors (great for hauling my pug around), and most importantly it was going to be cheap enough that I could justify giving away our other car to my wife’s parents, who desperately needed a new vehicle.

In September 2015, before the order books were open, I began searching for a dealer who actually had an allotment. I had heard stories of people who ‘ordered’ other high demand cars such as GT350s only to find out, months later, that their dealer in fact was never going to receive one. Luckily, a friend of mine knew the General Manager of a Ford dealer located 4 hours away who not only had a single allotment, they would sell it to me for MSRP! I want to stress that this dealership has been GREAT through this whole process. They are also victims in Ford Corporate’s horrible bungling of the situation and I’m sure they want nothing more than to get my car to me.

The order books officially opened on October 12th of 2015 and I placed one of the very first orders for a fully loaded Nitrous Blue Focus RS. My dealer commented how, due to how fast we placed it, this could be one of the first 5 delivered on the West Coast. We tentatively thought it could arrive as soon as January, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

January came and went with no car. This wasn’t a huge surprise to me as they had just started building them. My dealer kept insisting my car should enter ‘Production’ status any day now, so I still kept tabs every couple of weeks. In February is where things started to go wrong. The factory was shut down for 3 weeks to fix something on all the cars produced to that date, and to change the tooling to prevent whatever issue was plaguing them from happening any more. Ford never officially communicated on this, but rumors were that it had something to do with the Rear Drive Unit (RDU) on the car. The RDU unit was brand new, cutting edge technology so some hiccups were to be expected.

Cars were being built, but mine was nowhere in sight. We obviously weren’t going to be one of the first 5 on the West Coast, but I was sure I’d get my car in due time. The only problem was this — Ford wasn’t giving anyone any information. The production process was and still is a complete mystery. As of this writing, there are people that ordered the same day as me (October 12th) whose cars have STILL NOT BEEN PRODUCED.

The savior of both myself and everyone else on the Focus forums were two anonymous Ford employees who, in their spare time, were secretly giving us information of our cars. It was through these two heroes that I was told the day my car started production — March 13th. My car’s production was halted at one point (as were others) to fix yet another issue, but it was ready to be shipped out in April. Along with a couple hundred other cars, it was loaded onto the Grand Legacy late April and made way for Newark, New Jersey. The Focus forums had a lot of fun as we all tracked the ship in real time — and one fan even snuck on to the boat to take pictures once it docked!

Users tracked the Grand Legacy in realtimeSomeone even snuck on the boat. My car is somewhere in there!

And this is where the fun stops. Ford found out about the employees on the forum and told them to cease all information exchange. My car was unloaded in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th and that is the last time I’ve heard anything. Seriously. It has now been 10 weeks since my car has been unloaded and I don’t have it. I don’t know what it’s doing at the docks. Ford won’t tell me. I don’t know when it will be delivered. Ford won’t tell me. Ford told all RS owners to start contacting Ford Service on Facebook (seriously), who are outsourced customer support who read off scripts.

This helpful nugget was after 8 weeks sitting in port.

And that’s where we are today. My dealer can’t get any information — literally. His calls to Ford Corporate go unanswered. I tried emailing up the chain and received this absolute gem of an email from their crack support team:

They flat out tell a customer buying a $40,000 car they will no longer respond to them

I tried contacting them on Twitter. On Facebook. I even e-mailed Mark Fields, the CEO. I thought that was going to get the ball rolling as I received an email response from a real human, but it’s been 3 weeks and my car is still missing. I’ve offered to fly in and pick the car up, they won’t allow that. They can’t even give me an ETA. I had registered for the Virginia City Hillclimb after the car docked in May, figuring 5 months was plenty of time, and now it looks like I’m going to miss it.

What’s even worse is I’m not even the worst off. As I previously mentioned, there are people who ordered the same day I did who don’t even have production dates yet. I’m hoping Ford sees this and begins to fix their atrocious customer support system, and actually gives information to consumers. It’s insane that in today’s Same Day Delivery world, we can’t track something as major as a car.

To end on a funny note, there was someone in my position who got tired of waiting. In the time his car has been sitting in purgatory in Newark he went out, ordered a new STI, they built it, shipped it to him, and he took delivery before his car made it out of Newark. Maybe I should do that instead.

Rental cars have a reputation for being abused, which makes some people wary of buying one. However, the reputation is exaggerated, and rental car sales are in fact a legitimate and growing business. Rental cars do have abusive drivers on occasion, but they are well-maintained by the rental company and usually retired after less than two years of service. They are then inspected before being offered for sale. They also come with pretty good warranties, so far as used-car warranties go. If you're in the market for a new car, consider buying a rental.

Never forget you are in charge of the process when it comes to buying a car. The retail car sales industry has its share of salespeople who want to rush you into paying too much money for a car you may or may not actually want. You are the consumer. You hold the purse strings. Never get emotional. Do not be afraid to walk out and never, ever forget you are the one in charge.

Autos For Sale

With rising gasoline prices and highway toll charges, one would think automobile sales, especially luxury vehicles, would be negatively affected, but that hasn't necessarily been the case in Puerto Rico, reports Caribbean Business (Oct. 26, 2005):

According to the "Automobile Retail Sales Report" prepared by Plaza Motors Corp., new-auto sales during the month of August, the latest numbers available, was 11,896 units, up 14.6% from same month last year, and 10% higher than July 2005. Year-to-date sales of 90,488 units reflect a 6.7% increase over the same period in 2004, when the industry sold 84,789 units. Despite concerns about the government's fiscal crisis, the effects of increased taxation on vehicles, as well as rising gasoline and toll charges, industry observers contend local auto sales are on track to match and even beat last year's record of 134,391 units sold;

The reason? Although attractive manufacturer discounts and special offers by local financing institutions certainly have enticed a large number of consumers to change their old car for a new one, the lack of a reliable public transportation system, plus the Urban Train's limited coverage area have turned the automobile into a necessity rather than a commodity in Puerto Rico. According to Department of Transportation & Public Works statistics, there are 2.5 million registered vehicles on the island. In fact, Puerto Rico has one of the highest concentrations of vehicles and paved roads per square mile in the world. Of the new units sold in August, 6,935, or 58.3% were cars and 4,961, or 41.7%, were sport-utility vehicles (SUVs), which include light trucks, pickups, and minivans.

Good Used Cars to Buy

Best Car Selling Sites

When you don’t really need to drive all that much

As a designated Car Friend, people often ask me: Hey, James. Should I pick up a reasonably-priced used car and drive to the beach and sometimes suburban grocery stores? The answer to this question, of course, is yes, but that answer invites a much lengthier interrogation: What cars should I look at? What’s a good budget? Are private sellers trustworthy? In the spirit of that discussion, what follows is a comprehensive guide to buying cars for people who live somewhere that ensures they don’t really need a car, but maybe it’s nice to have.

It’s a good era to be shopping for used cars. Assuming you don’t rely on your car for daily transportation, it’s possible to get a perfectly decent vehicle for a small investment. Modern autos last far longer than whips of previous generations, and even a car fifteen years old in 2016 ought to feature a solid slate of creature comforts and safety features: power windows, AC, airbags, ABS, etc. The slings and arrows of depreciation ensure that used cars of a certain era trade hands at perhaps 10 or 20 percent of their cost new. What’s more, a savvy motorist can drive one of these used cars for several years, maintain it a bit, then sell it at nearly the same price. There’s a baseline where depreciation slows to a crawl.

You ought to plan on laying out at least $2,500 for a reliable set of wheels. It’s unlikely an example much under that price point will have many years of life left in it. Outliers exist, of course, but the risk somewhat overshadows the reward. On the other end of the spectrum, the once-a-week driver probably doesn’t need to spend more than $5,000. Between those points is the sweet spot for value and reliability.

What types of car am I looking for?

Japanese manufacturers tend to produce the most reliable cars. In the used-car bargain bin, Hondas and Toyotas are the longest lived, and also hold their value a bit better than the competition. Lexuses and Acuras are often perfectly affordable — these are just Toyotas and Hondas by another name. Nissans and Subarus are safe bets, too. Older cars from European makes are hit or miss. Plenty of folks drive their BMWs and Mercedes into the ground without experiencing a major repair bill, but frequent maintenance is critical for more complex, luxurious cars. An aging sports sedan with power seats, air-adjusted suspension and dual climate zones has a lot more components capable of breaking down. Low-end Euros aren’t safe either: elderly VWs in particular should be banished from your search.

American cars tend to be the least expensive on the lot, for good reason. There are certain models from Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and their sibling brands that are screwed together well (particularly trucks) but many of these products are real duds. Avoid anything that looks like it belongs at a rental counter in LAX circa 2005.

For a consumer in the market for a “regular” car, boring old sedans and compact cars deliver the best value. Trucks, sports cars, Jeeps, etc., are valued by enthusiast communities and command a premium compared to more sedate transportation.

What to look for in a used car ad?

Cliché, but true: the best marketplace to seek a used car is the same venue you used to sell your couch and find a Pokemon trainer: Craigslist. Certain regions have good local-paper classifieds, too, but Craigslist — temple of retro web design — always delivers.

Lots of people fear buying a used car from a private seller, but I prefer to do business with an individual. Dealers don’t know much about the history of their inventory, while a private seller can share the life story of their car. Private sellers are by and large honest, if occasionally less informed than automotive experts. Used car dealers specializing in the cheapest cars, by contrast, are often true bottom-feeders — the fount from which car sales stereotypes emerged. There are reputable used car outlets, but be on guard for a fly-by-night operation.

Here’s an ad that appears to have nothing to hide

In evaluating ads, you’re looking for two things: maintenance history and plenty of clear photos. The more photos, the more likely the car is in good condition. Cars that invite close inspection should be advertised with shots taken from a variety of angles, showing the inside and under the hood. Check that doors all sit level, and that the color of each panel matches exactly — uneven body fit or paint can indicate a prior wreck. Look closely for signs of rust. Rust is the worst, usually a terminal condition, and especially a concern when shopping in the snowy, salty states of the northeast or Midwest.

The more maintenance an owner can demonstrate they’ve performed, the longer their car is likely to last, and the less money you’ll have to put into it. Ask about wear items that need to be regularly replaced: tires, brakes, battery. The longer a car has been with a seller, the more likely it’s been well looked-after. Mileage isn’t an urgent concern — it’s better to buy a thoroughly maintained car with higher miles than a low-mile example suffering from neglect.

Be aware there are certain big-ticket services all cars require as they age. Every 90k miles or so, most cars need to their timing belt and water pump replaced. This can be a costly pit stop, and skipping it is not wise. Cars over 100,000 miles often, but not always, require new exhausts, shocks, wheel bearing or axles — it’s a good sign if these repairs were repaired by the previous owner. If you happen to be shopping for a car with a manual transmission, the typical lifespan of a clutch is 100–150k, so the cost of a replacement should be factored into the purchase of a car that has traveled that range on its original equipment.

I’m going out to see a used car — how do I inspect it?

So, you found a promising lead and it’s time for an-person inspection. Ask the seller if they can avoid starting the car before your visit. Certain ailments are more noticeable on a cold start, so unscrupulous car dealers sometimes take the liberty of warming their goods up. When you get out to see the car, before you turn it on, conduct a walk-around. Do the panels fit tight?

This is the kind of rust that can eat up a car — avoid it!

Is the paint color consistent all around? Is there any rust in the lower edges of the body. The tires should all match and show good depth. Make sure all the lights and signals work, then check that the engine is full of fluids: oil, coolant, power steering and transmission fluid. [note: definitely do NOT check coolant level on a hot engine!] While you’re under the hood, peep the sheet metal around the engine: does it look straight and original? Poke your head under the car and see if it appears to be leaving any puddles of oil or coolant from a fresh leak. If there’s water under the car and the AC was just running, don’t fret! That’s normal.

Assuming you made it this far, it’s time for a drive. Start the car up, listening for untoward noises like squealing belts or a rattling exhaust. Did the check engine light illuminate when the key was in “on” and go away after the engine was started? Test all the accessories: windows, AC, wipers, etc, and hit the open road. Leave the windows down to better hear any potential mechanical issues.

Once you’re on the open road, see how the car responds to changes in speed and RPMs. Does the engine sound smooth or does it stumble? Are gear shifts firm and quick? Are bumps absorbed with aplomb, or does the car feel like it’s too low or too bouncy? On a straight, flat, safe section of road, release the wheel and check that the car drives straight. Push the brakes: do they cause the car to pull to one side?

Once you’re satisfied your potential purchase drives the way it should, it’s time to make an offer and do some paperwork.

How much should I pay for this car?

Uncomfortable as it may be to haggle, negotiations are a fact of life in the used car game. Dealers and private sellers both set their asking price in anticipation of being knocked around a little bit. The typical wiggle room in a used car price is around 10 percent, but don’t let that stop you from bargaining your way to an even better price reduction.

Before you seal the deal, tell the seller that you’re ready to buy, but you’re concerned the asking price is just too high. Often, a seller will do some negotiating on your behalf, and throw out a slightly lower number. Whatever the response to your initial entreaty, don’t accept the quoted figure immediately. Instead, suggest a price twenty-five percent under the most recent offer. That’s an amount close enough to ask to demonstrate you’re serious, and it’s further than halfway under the typical negotiations (ten percent), stacking the deck slightly in your favor. There may be a little back and forth from here out, but stick to your guns. It’s very, very rare to meet a seller with no willingness to deal.

The voyage home

I prefer to bring my used car purchases home immediately after negotiations. I head to the bank and withdraw the full amount (this probably means a visit to a live teller, not the ATM) and fill out the paperwork with the seller on the spot. The seller needs to sign over the title (check that it is “clean,” i.e., not salvage or repair branded), and provide a signature on a bill of sale. The BOS is not a complicated document. In nearly any state, the DMV will accept a handwritten agreement that lists the car’s selling price, Vehicle Identification Number and the names and addresses of the buyer and seller. A couple oddball states like Pennsylvania require this documentation to be notarized—a quick visit to Google should clear up the rules in your state.

If you don’t plan to bring the car home the day you viewed it, leave a deposit (10 percent of the sale price, or $500, whichever is less) and write up an agreement to provide the remainder.

One final hurdle in the transaction process: physically getting the car home. Odds are that on the day of your purchase, you are not equipped with valid registration and license plates for the new car. The easiest solution: drive it home with the old license plates still on the car (they’re valid until the previous owner cancels the registration) and mail the plates back to the seller. If the previous owner balks at this plan, you could ask her to drive the car herself to your home, and then offer to ferry her back. If these options are both off the table, you’ll need to leave the car with the seller and head to the DMV to secure registration. After getting license plates at the DMV, you can return to the seller and drive off into the sunset 100 percent legit.

For most people, buying a used car is a rare occasion indeed, and it’s easy to feel intimidated by the process. Don’t sweat it. There are lots of great used cars out there, and a little bit of research and preparation will go a long way toward a successful purchase. You’re going to do great!

Jim Dykstra: The evolution of car buying. From horse trading to the self-driving car. The most important thing to understand about a horse trader is, horse traders didn’t price horses, they priced people. “How much can I get from this gal? How much from that guy?” Not surprising, that that led to more than a few disagreements. Then in 1908, Henry Ford begins mass producing the Model T. The dealership’s born. But as we move from horses to cars, dealers continue the tradition of pricing people rather than products. It’s still buyer beware when it comes to buying a car.

Car Buying Online

Technology has dramatically simplified our most complex task. It’s made it easy for anybody to buy and sell stock online at E-Trade, to prepare and file your taxes with TurboTax, buy a ticket to a concert tonight with StubHub, or book a trip around the world. But when it comes to shopping for a car online, every click seems to lead you to the dealership. Why do you have to sit in a dealership for three hours while people run in and out and throw numbers at ‘cha, asking you to buy a car? Why is it that car buying has become the land that time forgot? Look, Eli Musk made battery-powered cars cool and sexy, his next project is put a man on Mars. Some people say he’s from there, so hashtag, going home. But the real question here is, why is it still so hard to buy a car?

My name’s Jim Dykstra the Founder and CEO of vinadvisor and it’s our mission to transform the purchase experience. To make it easy for you to buy any vehicle from any dealer on any device. We put the essential market data and easy to use tools into your hands so you can confidently buy a car online.

It’s easy for the first time ever. Because nobody should have to sit in a dealership for three, four hours to buy a car. Look at your vehicle shopping cart when you’re ready, click to buy, choose a local dealer. You’ll negotiate online and once you and the dealer agree to a price, set an appointment to sign and drive. When you get to the dealership, the car’s ready to go. The paperwork’s ready to go. In and out in less than an hour. You don’t have to buy a car the way your grandparents did.

What you may not realize is that paying with cash may negatively affect your bargaining position.

Where To Find Cars For Sale

Lets face it, buying a car is not easy. When you need help, you turn to the internet but many times,the internet either does not have what you need or it has too much of information. So, we at Zoomo decided we will create the ultimate used car guide which will have everything you need to know about used cars and simplify the process of buying used cars. In this article, we talk about why buying a used car is better than buying a new car.

First of all, let me state the obvious, buying a new car is not exactly a good idea. The only good thing is that you don’t have to be that careful and you get the new car smell but you are paying a huge price for that smell. When you sell the new car, you will lose more than you would want to. Buying used cars does not drain your wallet. Its just that you have to becareful and not buy the first car you find. Its important to do good research on the cars regarding which wewill be creating more guides soon.

Reason No. 1 — More car for same amount of money

Think about it, if your budget is 6 lakhs,you can buy a brand new Maruti Swift, it’s a nice car, but still tiny littlecar. Not the type people would have a second look at or not the car to enjoy long trips. Now, if you were to buy a used car, you could be driving a Honda City. It’s a beautiful, quite luxurious and a powerful car. So why settle for something small when you can have it big? Check out this table which shows more examples of how you could buy a bigger used car

Reason No. 2 — Same car for less money

There is one more angle to the earlier point, Lets take an example of mid-range sedan like the Honda City 1.5 MVT. For a new Honda City, you will have to spend around 13 lakhs including road tax etc of over 2 lakhs. Now, if you were to sell the car within the next two years or so, you would lose at least 3–4 lakhs, which means the depreciation is over 2 lakhs per year. Instead, if you buy a 2 year old used Honda City, you would be spending only around 8.7 lakhs. Now, when you sell this used city after driving it for 3 years, you will lose only 3 lakhs in 3 years depreciating at 1 lakh per year. So what we can see here is that,by buying a used car, you are incurring less depreciation, avoiding paying all the road tax and in total, making a smaller down payment

Reason No. 3 — Cars are meant to last looong

Cars are built to last years, and most cars for at least 2,00,000 kms. So when you are buying a used car which has run less than 40000 kms, you have nothing to worry about because they will easily run for another 100000 kms without any major changes. If you give it the right amount of care, you will only have the occasional trips to the service centre.

Not only that, Usually most first owners love their car and take it around carefully. They wash it regularly, and service it only from the company itself. They are probably the only one driving it so the car will be pretty smooth. To ensure that the car was maintained well, you should either buy certified cars or get the car inspected with the help of an expert which Zoomo provides.

Reason No. 4 — Used cars are ideal for beginners

Bought a new car and didn’t like it? Sell it and you are gonna lose a lot of money. Bought a used car and didn’t like it? Just sell it and you are not going to lose much money. You don’t have to worry about giving the car too much care because, a little scratch or dent, here or there is not going to affect the value as much as it would have if it was a new car. This means, used cars are always best for first time drivers.

Buying a used car involves pretty low risk, unless you did not get the car inspected. It’s very crucial, that you get an expert to inspect the car and that you test drive it. Zoomo offers inspections for only Rs.299 on any car in Bangalore. Having said that, buying used car has low risks and is also a good idea for anyone who is buying cars for the first time.

Reason No. 5 — Used cars are better for the planet

If everyone kept buying new cars, there is going to be more cars than the world can handle. Companies like Airbnb and Ola cabs is encouraging more and more sharing of each other’s resources and it’s important that we continue to move towards a society which shares and utilizes its resources smartly. Used cars plays a crucial part in helping us have a better planet to live in. Think about it, when we were small, we used to wear our elder sibling/cousins clothes and play with their toys, and now that you have grown up, you could own cars similarly.

How to Buy A Car

Used Car Buying Sites

In early 2015, I began hearing rumors of the new Ford Focus RS. I had been toying with the idea of buying a new daily driver, since my bright idea to daily driver a Lamborghini was not turning out the way I had planned. The rumors slowly became facts, and the car hit many of the things I was looking for. It was fast (I can track it!), it had all wheel drive (for the Seattle rain), it had four doors (great for hauling my pug around), and most importantly it was going to be cheap enough that I could justify giving away our other car to my wife’s parents, who desperately needed a new vehicle.

In September 2015, before the order books were open, I began searching for a dealer who actually had an allotment. I had heard stories of people who ‘ordered’ other high demand cars such as GT350s only to find out, months later, that their dealer in fact was never going to receive one. Luckily, a friend of mine knew the General Manager of a Ford dealer located 4 hours away who not only had a single allotment, they would sell it to me for MSRP! I want to stress that this dealership has been GREAT through this whole process. They are also victims in Ford Corporate’s horrible bungling of the situation and I’m sure they want nothing more than to get my car to me.

The order books officially opened on October 12th of 2015 and I placed one of the very first orders for a fully loaded Nitrous Blue Focus RS. My dealer commented how, due to how fast we placed it, this could be one of the first 5 delivered on the West Coast. We tentatively thought it could arrive as soon as January, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

January came and went with no car. This wasn’t a huge surprise to me as they had just started building them. My dealer kept insisting my car should enter ‘Production’ status any day now, so I still kept tabs every couple of weeks. In February is where things started to go wrong. The factory was shut down for 3 weeks to fix something on all the cars produced to that date, and to change the tooling to prevent whatever issue was plaguing them from happening any more. Ford never officially communicated on this, but rumors were that it had something to do with the Rear Drive Unit (RDU) on the car. The RDU unit was brand new, cutting edge technology so some hiccups were to be expected.

Cars were being built, but mine was nowhere in sight. We obviously weren’t going to be one of the first 5 on the West Coast, but I was sure I’d get my car in due time. The only problem was this — Ford wasn’t giving anyone any information. The production process was and still is a complete mystery. As of this writing, there are people that ordered the same day as me (October 12th) whose cars have STILL NOT BEEN PRODUCED.

The savior of both myself and everyone else on the Focus forums were two anonymous Ford employees who, in their spare time, were secretly giving us information of our cars. It was through these two heroes that I was told the day my car started production — March 13th. My car’s production was halted at one point (as were others) to fix yet another issue, but it was ready to be shipped out in April. Along with a couple hundred other cars, it was loaded onto the Grand Legacy late April and made way for Newark, New Jersey. The Focus forums had a lot of fun as we all tracked the ship in real time — and one fan even snuck on to the boat to take pictures once it docked!

Users tracked the Grand Legacy in realtimeSomeone even snuck on the boat. My car is somewhere in there!

And this is where the fun stops. Ford found out about the employees on the forum and told them to cease all information exchange. My car was unloaded in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th and that is the last time I’ve heard anything. Seriously. It has now been 10 weeks since my car has been unloaded and I don’t have it. I don’t know what it’s doing at the docks. Ford won’t tell me. I don’t know when it will be delivered. Ford won’t tell me. Ford told all RS owners to start contacting Ford Service on Facebook (seriously), who are outsourced customer support who read off scripts.

This helpful nugget was after 8 weeks sitting in port.

And that’s where we are today. My dealer can’t get any information — literally. His calls to Ford Corporate go unanswered. I tried emailing up the chain and received this absolute gem of an email from their crack support team:

They flat out tell a customer buying a $40,000 car they will no longer respond to them

I tried contacting them on Twitter. On Facebook. I even e-mailed Mark Fields, the CEO. I thought that was going to get the ball rolling as I received an email response from a real human, but it’s been 3 weeks and my car is still missing. I’ve offered to fly in and pick the car up, they won’t allow that. They can’t even give me an ETA. I had registered for the Virginia City Hillclimb after the car docked in May, figuring 5 months was plenty of time, and now it looks like I’m going to miss it.

What’s even worse is I’m not even the worst off. As I previously mentioned, there are people who ordered the same day I did who don’t even have production dates yet. I’m hoping Ford sees this and begins to fix their atrocious customer support system, and actually gives information to consumers. It’s insane that in today’s Same Day Delivery world, we can’t track something as major as a car.

To end on a funny note, there was someone in my position who got tired of waiting. In the time his car has been sitting in purgatory in Newark he went out, ordered a new STI, they built it, shipped it to him, and he took delivery before his car made it out of Newark. Maybe I should do that instead.

Secondhand cars have a lower depreciation rate compared to new cars. You can acquire your ideal car easily, quickly and cheaply. But take a few well-established steps when buying secondhand cars to successfully close the deal.

Promoted by

Step 4: Negotiate

Do research on the pricing of secondhand cars to know the car’s worth and thus identify a suitable price. Decide how high you can go and make your initial price offer low. When you reach your limit -- and there is no deal -- walk away.

Step 5: Check the Paperwork

This will provide you with the details about the car ownership and the history of the car. Ensure the documents are genuine. If the car’s history report is filled with issues, do not proceed with the deal. If you are not convinced by the history report, ask for the car’s financial records -- such as the receipt for its most recent sale or receipts for maintenance work -- to make sure it is not stolen. Ensure that you have all the important documents before closing the deal. Check that the vehicle identification number recorded on the log book is the same as the one displayed on the car.

Kelley Blue Book, the trusted resource for used and new car information, invites consumers to use its name and seal to help sell their vehicles.

As of today, consumers can log on to www.kbb.com, research the suggested private party Blue Book value of their vehicle and then quickly and easily print a personalized "FOR SALE" sign with the recognized Kelley logo.

When consumers decide to sell their cars, they turn to Kelley Blue Book to determine the fair, private party value. In July, consumers generated more than 10 million private party pricing reports on cars they were looking to sell or buy. As a champion of the transaction, the company now offers this simple tool to assist owners in selling their cars quickly and easily.

"With this new window sticker, sellers can compare their asking price to the trusted Kelley Blue Book value," said Stephen Henson, vice president of marketing, business development. "It helps build credibility and trust with any potential buyer."

Used Vehicles For Sale

In early 2015, I began hearing rumors of the new Ford Focus RS. I had been toying with the idea of buying a new daily driver, since my bright idea to daily driver a Lamborghini was not turning out the way I had planned. The rumors slowly became facts, and the car hit many of the things I was looking for. It was fast (I can track it!), it had all wheel drive (for the Seattle rain), it had four doors (great for hauling my pug around), and most importantly it was going to be cheap enough that I could justify giving away our other car to my wife’s parents, who desperately needed a new vehicle.

In September 2015, before the order books were open, I began searching for a dealer who actually had an allotment. I had heard stories of people who ‘ordered’ other high demand cars such as GT350s only to find out, months later, that their dealer in fact was never going to receive one. Luckily, a friend of mine knew the General Manager of a Ford dealer located 4 hours away who not only had a single allotment, they would sell it to me for MSRP! I want to stress that this dealership has been GREAT through this whole process. They are also victims in Ford Corporate’s horrible bungling of the situation and I’m sure they want nothing more than to get my car to me.

The order books officially opened on October 12th of 2015 and I placed one of the very first orders for a fully loaded Nitrous Blue Focus RS. My dealer commented how, due to how fast we placed it, this could be one of the first 5 delivered on the West Coast. We tentatively thought it could arrive as soon as January, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

January came and went with no car. This wasn’t a huge surprise to me as they had just started building them. My dealer kept insisting my car should enter ‘Production’ status any day now, so I still kept tabs every couple of weeks. In February is where things started to go wrong. The factory was shut down for 3 weeks to fix something on all the cars produced to that date, and to change the tooling to prevent whatever issue was plaguing them from happening any more. Ford never officially communicated on this, but rumors were that it had something to do with the Rear Drive Unit (RDU) on the car. The RDU unit was brand new, cutting edge technology so some hiccups were to be expected.

Cars were being built, but mine was nowhere in sight. We obviously weren’t going to be one of the first 5 on the West Coast, but I was sure I’d get my car in due time. The only problem was this — Ford wasn’t giving anyone any information. The production process was and still is a complete mystery. As of this writing, there are people that ordered the same day as me (October 12th) whose cars have STILL NOT BEEN PRODUCED.

The savior of both myself and everyone else on the Focus forums were two anonymous Ford employees who, in their spare time, were secretly giving us information of our cars. It was through these two heroes that I was told the day my car started production — March 13th. My car’s production was halted at one point (as were others) to fix yet another issue, but it was ready to be shipped out in April. Along with a couple hundred other cars, it was loaded onto the Grand Legacy late April and made way for Newark, New Jersey. The Focus forums had a lot of fun as we all tracked the ship in real time — and one fan even snuck on to the boat to take pictures once it docked!

Users tracked the Grand Legacy in realtimeSomeone even snuck on the boat. My car is somewhere in there!

And this is where the fun stops. Ford found out about the employees on the forum and told them to cease all information exchange. My car was unloaded in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th and that is the last time I’ve heard anything. Seriously. It has now been 10 weeks since my car has been unloaded and I don’t have it. I don’t know what it’s doing at the docks. Ford won’t tell me. I don’t know when it will be delivered. Ford won’t tell me. Ford told all RS owners to start contacting Ford Service on Facebook (seriously), who are outsourced customer support who read off scripts.

This helpful nugget was after 8 weeks sitting in port.

And that’s where we are today. My dealer can’t get any information — literally. His calls to Ford Corporate go unanswered. I tried emailing up the chain and received this absolute gem of an email from their crack support team:

They flat out tell a customer buying a $40,000 car they will no longer respond to them

I tried contacting them on Twitter. On Facebook. I even e-mailed Mark Fields, the CEO. I thought that was going to get the ball rolling as I received an email response from a real human, but it’s been 3 weeks and my car is still missing. I’ve offered to fly in and pick the car up, they won’t allow that. They can’t even give me an ETA. I had registered for the Virginia City Hillclimb after the car docked in May, figuring 5 months was plenty of time, and now it looks like I’m going to miss it.

What’s even worse is I’m not even the worst off. As I previously mentioned, there are people who ordered the same day I did who don’t even have production dates yet. I’m hoping Ford sees this and begins to fix their atrocious customer support system, and actually gives information to consumers. It’s insane that in today’s Same Day Delivery world, we can’t track something as major as a car.

To end on a funny note, there was someone in my position who got tired of waiting. In the time his car has been sitting in purgatory in Newark he went out, ordered a new STI, they built it, shipped it to him, and he took delivery before his car made it out of Newark. Maybe I should do that instead.

How To Sell A Car On Craigslist

Websites To Buy Cars

When you don’t really need to drive all that much

As a designated Car Friend, people often ask me: Hey, James. Should I pick up a reasonably-priced used car and drive to the beach and sometimes suburban grocery stores? The answer to this question, of course, is yes, but that answer invites a much lengthier interrogation: What cars should I look at? What’s a good budget? Are private sellers trustworthy? In the spirit of that discussion, what follows is a comprehensive guide to buying cars for people who live somewhere that ensures they don’t really need a car, but maybe it’s nice to have.

It’s a good era to be shopping for used cars. Assuming you don’t rely on your car for daily transportation, it’s possible to get a perfectly decent vehicle for a small investment. Modern autos last far longer than whips of previous generations, and even a car fifteen years old in 2016 ought to feature a solid slate of creature comforts and safety features: power windows, AC, airbags, ABS, etc. The slings and arrows of depreciation ensure that used cars of a certain era trade hands at perhaps 10 or 20 percent of their cost new. What’s more, a savvy motorist can drive one of these used cars for several years, maintain it a bit, then sell it at nearly the same price. There’s a baseline where depreciation slows to a crawl.

You ought to plan on laying out at least $2,500 for a reliable set of wheels. It’s unlikely an example much under that price point will have many years of life left in it. Outliers exist, of course, but the risk somewhat overshadows the reward. On the other end of the spectrum, the once-a-week driver probably doesn’t need to spend more than $5,000. Between those points is the sweet spot for value and reliability.

What types of car am I looking for?

Japanese manufacturers tend to produce the most reliable cars. In the used-car bargain bin, Hondas and Toyotas are the longest lived, and also hold their value a bit better than the competition. Lexuses and Acuras are often perfectly affordable — these are just Toyotas and Hondas by another name. Nissans and Subarus are safe bets, too. Older cars from European makes are hit or miss. Plenty of folks drive their BMWs and Mercedes into the ground without experiencing a major repair bill, but frequent maintenance is critical for more complex, luxurious cars. An aging sports sedan with power seats, air-adjusted suspension and dual climate zones has a lot more components capable of breaking down. Low-end Euros aren’t safe either: elderly VWs in particular should be banished from your search.

American cars tend to be the least expensive on the lot, for good reason. There are certain models from Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and their sibling brands that are screwed together well (particularly trucks) but many of these products are real duds. Avoid anything that looks like it belongs at a rental counter in LAX circa 2005.

For a consumer in the market for a “regular” car, boring old sedans and compact cars deliver the best value. Trucks, sports cars, Jeeps, etc., are valued by enthusiast communities and command a premium compared to more sedate transportation.

What to look for in a used car ad?

Cliché, but true: the best marketplace to seek a used car is the same venue you used to sell your couch and find a Pokemon trainer: Craigslist. Certain regions have good local-paper classifieds, too, but Craigslist — temple of retro web design — always delivers.

Lots of people fear buying a used car from a private seller, but I prefer to do business with an individual. Dealers don’t know much about the history of their inventory, while a private seller can share the life story of their car. Private sellers are by and large honest, if occasionally less informed than automotive experts. Used car dealers specializing in the cheapest cars, by contrast, are often true bottom-feeders — the fount from which car sales stereotypes emerged. There are reputable used car outlets, but be on guard for a fly-by-night operation.

Here’s an ad that appears to have nothing to hide

In evaluating ads, you’re looking for two things: maintenance history and plenty of clear photos. The more photos, the more likely the car is in good condition. Cars that invite close inspection should be advertised with shots taken from a variety of angles, showing the inside and under the hood. Check that doors all sit level, and that the color of each panel matches exactly — uneven body fit or paint can indicate a prior wreck. Look closely for signs of rust. Rust is the worst, usually a terminal condition, and especially a concern when shopping in the snowy, salty states of the northeast or Midwest.

The more maintenance an owner can demonstrate they’ve performed, the longer their car is likely to last, and the less money you’ll have to put into it. Ask about wear items that need to be regularly replaced: tires, brakes, battery. The longer a car has been with a seller, the more likely it’s been well looked-after. Mileage isn’t an urgent concern — it’s better to buy a thoroughly maintained car with higher miles than a low-mile example suffering from neglect.

Be aware there are certain big-ticket services all cars require as they age. Every 90k miles or so, most cars need to their timing belt and water pump replaced. This can be a costly pit stop, and skipping it is not wise. Cars over 100,000 miles often, but not always, require new exhausts, shocks, wheel bearing or axles — it’s a good sign if these repairs were repaired by the previous owner. If you happen to be shopping for a car with a manual transmission, the typical lifespan of a clutch is 100–150k, so the cost of a replacement should be factored into the purchase of a car that has traveled that range on its original equipment.

I’m going out to see a used car — how do I inspect it?

So, you found a promising lead and it’s time for an-person inspection. Ask the seller if they can avoid starting the car before your visit. Certain ailments are more noticeable on a cold start, so unscrupulous car dealers sometimes take the liberty of warming their goods up. When you get out to see the car, before you turn it on, conduct a walk-around. Do the panels fit tight?

This is the kind of rust that can eat up a car — avoid it!

Is the paint color consistent all around? Is there any rust in the lower edges of the body. The tires should all match and show good depth. Make sure all the lights and signals work, then check that the engine is full of fluids: oil, coolant, power steering and transmission fluid. [note: definitely do NOT check coolant level on a hot engine!] While you’re under the hood, peep the sheet metal around the engine: does it look straight and original? Poke your head under the car and see if it appears to be leaving any puddles of oil or coolant from a fresh leak. If there’s water under the car and the AC was just running, don’t fret! That’s normal.

Assuming you made it this far, it’s time for a drive. Start the car up, listening for untoward noises like squealing belts or a rattling exhaust. Did the check engine light illuminate when the key was in “on” and go away after the engine was started? Test all the accessories: windows, AC, wipers, etc, and hit the open road. Leave the windows down to better hear any potential mechanical issues.

Once you’re on the open road, see how the car responds to changes in speed and RPMs. Does the engine sound smooth or does it stumble? Are gear shifts firm and quick? Are bumps absorbed with aplomb, or does the car feel like it’s too low or too bouncy? On a straight, flat, safe section of road, release the wheel and check that the car drives straight. Push the brakes: do they cause the car to pull to one side?

Once you’re satisfied your potential purchase drives the way it should, it’s time to make an offer and do some paperwork.

How much should I pay for this car?

Uncomfortable as it may be to haggle, negotiations are a fact of life in the used car game. Dealers and private sellers both set their asking price in anticipation of being knocked around a little bit. The typical wiggle room in a used car price is around 10 percent, but don’t let that stop you from bargaining your way to an even better price reduction.

Before you seal the deal, tell the seller that you’re ready to buy, but you’re concerned the asking price is just too high. Often, a seller will do some negotiating on your behalf, and throw out a slightly lower number. Whatever the response to your initial entreaty, don’t accept the quoted figure immediately. Instead, suggest a price twenty-five percent under the most recent offer. That’s an amount close enough to ask to demonstrate you’re serious, and it’s further than halfway under the typical negotiations (ten percent), stacking the deck slightly in your favor. There may be a little back and forth from here out, but stick to your guns. It’s very, very rare to meet a seller with no willingness to deal.

The voyage home

I prefer to bring my used car purchases home immediately after negotiations. I head to the bank and withdraw the full amount (this probably means a visit to a live teller, not the ATM) and fill out the paperwork with the seller on the spot. The seller needs to sign over the title (check that it is “clean,” i.e., not salvage or repair branded), and provide a signature on a bill of sale. The BOS is not a complicated document. In nearly any state, the DMV will accept a handwritten agreement that lists the car’s selling price, Vehicle Identification Number and the names and addresses of the buyer and seller. A couple oddball states like Pennsylvania require this documentation to be notarized—a quick visit to Google should clear up the rules in your state.

If you don’t plan to bring the car home the day you viewed it, leave a deposit (10 percent of the sale price, or $500, whichever is less) and write up an agreement to provide the remainder.

One final hurdle in the transaction process: physically getting the car home. Odds are that on the day of your purchase, you are not equipped with valid registration and license plates for the new car. The easiest solution: drive it home with the old license plates still on the car (they’re valid until the previous owner cancels the registration) and mail the plates back to the seller. If the previous owner balks at this plan, you could ask her to drive the car herself to your home, and then offer to ferry her back. If these options are both off the table, you’ll need to leave the car with the seller and head to the DMV to secure registration. After getting license plates at the DMV, you can return to the seller and drive off into the sunset 100 percent legit.

For most people, buying a used car is a rare occasion indeed, and it’s easy to feel intimidated by the process. Don’t sweat it. There are lots of great used cars out there, and a little bit of research and preparation will go a long way toward a successful purchase. You’re going to do great!

Secondhand cars have a lower depreciation rate compared to new cars. You can acquire your ideal car easily, quickly and cheaply. But take a few well-established steps when buying secondhand cars to successfully close the deal.

Step 4: Negotiate

Do research on the pricing of secondhand cars to know the car’s worth and thus identify a suitable price. Decide how high you can go and make your initial price offer low. When you reach your limit -- and there is no deal -- walk away.

Step 5: Check the Paperwork

This will provide you with the details about the car ownership and the history of the car. Ensure the documents are genuine. If the car’s history report is filled with issues, do not proceed with the deal. If you are not convinced by the history report, ask for the car’s financial records -- such as the receipt for its most recent sale or receipts for maintenance work -- to make sure it is not stolen. Ensure that you have all the important documents before closing the deal. Check that the vehicle identification number recorded on the log book is the same as the one displayed on the car.

How to Buy a Car From a Rental Company

Sites To Buy Cars

Rental cars have a reputation for being abused, which makes some people wary of buying one. However, the reputation is exaggerated, and rental car sales are in fact a legitimate and growing business. Rental cars do have abusive drivers on occasion, but they are well-maintained by the rental company and usually retired after less than two years of service. They are then inspected before being offered for sale. They also come with pretty good warranties, so far as used-car warranties go. If you're in the market for a new car, consider buying a rental.

The Nightmare of Buying A Ford Focus RS

Car Auto Sales

Byline: Noelle Knox Associated Press

Renault, the French automaker that fled the U.S. market a decade ago with a reputation for poor-quality cars, plans to return by selling its cars under the Nissan brand name early in the next decade.

Renault also plans to build cars at Nissan's plants in Mexico and return to that market under its own banner.

The disclosures Tuesday provide examples of how the companies plan to make their new alliance work.

Nissan and Renault will combine their design, purchasing, manufacturing, and sales operations around the world. The goal is to capitalize on what the other does best.

Renault, which bought a 37 percent stake in the Japanese automaker last weekend, also announced a strategy for reducing Nissan's crippling debt levels by almost 70 percent within three years.

``The Nissan story could be a turnaround story in the same way, in the past, Renault has been a turnaround story,'' Louis Schweitzer, chairman and chief executive of Renault, told reporters Tuesday.

Just a few years ago, Renault was losing money and faced with too much capacity and a bloated cost structure. When it last competed in the American market, its lineup not only included the Medallion sedan and the subcompact Alliance but also the venerable Jeep brand it acquired in the takeover of American Motors and later sold to Chrysler.

The companies expect to save $568 million next year by combining their operations, but 86 percent of that savings is expected to come from squeezing suppliers, the executives told analysts Tuesday.

Just as badly as Nissan needs to cut costs, the company also needs to improve its sales of cars and trucks. Nissan, which builds the Altima sedan and Infiniti Q45 luxury car, saw its U.S. sales fall 14.7 percent last year.

Renault, which is still largely confined to Europe, also needs to expand sales of its Scenic micro-minivan and its Megane sedan.

So, the two companies plan to build and sell each other's cars.

Schweitzer said Renault had no plans to use Nissan's assembly plants in Tennessee, but he said, ``You may find a product (in the United States) that looks like a Renault, but they would be called Nissans.''

In Europe, Renault will take over most of Nissan's operations, so Nissan can focus its resources on rebuilding its business in North America and its home market of Japan. Renault, for example, which doesn't build any popular sport-utility vehicles might start selling Nissan's 4X4s under the Renault brand.

How to Buy a Rental Car From Hertz

New Cars For Sale

Jim Dykstra: The evolution of car buying. From horse trading to the self-driving car. The most important thing to understand about a horse trader is, horse traders didn’t price horses, they priced people. “How much can I get from this gal? How much from that guy?” Not surprising, that that led to more than a few disagreements. Then in 1908, Henry Ford begins mass producing the Model T. The dealership’s born. But as we move from horses to cars, dealers continue the tradition of pricing people rather than products. It’s still buyer beware when it comes to buying a car.

Car Buying Online

Technology has dramatically simplified our most complex task. It’s made it easy for anybody to buy and sell stock online at E-Trade, to prepare and file your taxes with TurboTax, buy a ticket to a concert tonight with StubHub, or book a trip around the world. But when it comes to shopping for a car online, every click seems to lead you to the dealership. Why do you have to sit in a dealership for three hours while people run in and out and throw numbers at ‘cha, asking you to buy a car? Why is it that car buying has become the land that time forgot? Look, Eli Musk made battery-powered cars cool and sexy, his next project is put a man on Mars. Some people say he’s from there, so hashtag, going home. But the real question here is, why is it still so hard to buy a car?

My name’s Jim Dykstra the Founder and CEO of vinadvisor and it’s our mission to transform the purchase experience. To make it easy for you to buy any vehicle from any dealer on any device. We put the essential market data and easy to use tools into your hands so you can confidently buy a car online. Assured you’re getting a fair price on your next car, and your trade, and fair treatment and financing because we only work for you. Vinadvisor does not charge dealer fees of any kind. Vinadvisor has dramatically simplified the purchase experience. We put the essential information into your hands in the form of a vehicle shopping cart so you can easily compare new or used cars, confirm incentive eligibility, trade value, and even shop by monthly payment. It’s easy for the first time ever. Because nobody should have to sit in a dealership for three, four hours to buy a car. Look at your vehicle shopping cart when you’re ready, click to buy, choose a local dealer. You’ll negotiate online and once you and the dealer agree to a price, set an appointment to sign and drive. When you get to the dealership, the car’s ready to go. The paperwork’s ready to go. In and out in less than an hour. You don’t have to buy a car the way your grandparents did. Because at vinadvisor, it’s your turn to drive.

How did we sell cars before the Internet? Newspapers and word of mouth, that’s how. Can you imagine anything more labor intensive? But then science discovered the Internet, and with it Craigslist, and BAM! People had an easy way to clear out their garages.

Craigslist KC — Kansas City or commonly known as K.C is the largest city in the United States, So people are struggling to sell/buy things via online. There is one most popular classified site that helps people to sell/buy things via online. It’s Craigslist

Last year, a few of us at Hagerty bought some inexpensive modern classics for a video shoot — a 1985 Mazda RX-7, a 1975 Chevy El Camino and a 1972 VW Beetle. Once the shoot was wrapped, we soon discovered that we had to do something with the cars. Instead of selling them, like we should have done, we found a nice warm garage, parked them, and let them appreciate. Now they are worth tens of dollars more than they were a year ago, and the time has come to pass them along to the next stewards.

With three cars to sell and the vast power of science’s Craigslist on which to sell them, we decided to vary our approach with each car, much the way you see varied sales approaches on Craigslist itself. Generally, people try to offload their old cars in one of three ways:

  1. From a “Here’s the analysis, look at the facts, this is an investment” standpoint.
  2. From a “Look how funny I am and look how funny you could be too if you buy my car” standpoint.
  3. From an “I don’t care about this car enough to give it more than seven words of description” standpoint.

Based purely on the amount of effort we felt each car deserved, we assigned them each their own strategy.

Thus, the RX-7 ad is designed to appeal to the collector who just wants the facts, the hard data.

The El Camino, funny car that it is, was assigned the ironic approach.

And the Beetle, well, it’s a Beetle, everybody knows what it is, and what more is there to say, really?

All three cars were priced roughly the same, which is to say the $3,000–$4,000 entry-level collectible range. And each was photographed appropriately, though in the case of the Beetle, that simply means a couple blurry, partially obscured shots. The only thing left to do, then, is to sit back and see which approach garners the most interest. And whether we can actually sell these things….

Which car do you think will sell first? Tell us in the comments.

To save ourselves from repeating this process, for our next 3 Guys video project, we’ll be selling the cars at Auctions America’s Fall Auburn sale next month. Check out the preview video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYsLVJek9hs

Just as badly as Nissan needs to cut costs, the company also needs to improve its sales of cars and trucks. Nissan, which builds the Altima sedan and Infiniti Q45 luxury car, saw its U.S. sales fall 14.7 percent last year.

Renault, which is still largely confined to Europe, also needs to expand sales of its Scenic micro-minivan and its Megane sedan.

So, the two companies plan to build and sell each other's cars.

Schweitzer said Renault had no plans to use Nissan's assembly plants in Tennessee, but he said, ``You may find a product (in the United States) that looks like a Renault, but they would be called Nissans.''

In Europe, Renault will take over most of Nissan's operations, so Nissan can focus its resources on rebuilding its business in North America and its home market of Japan. Renault, for example, which doesn't build any popular sport-utility vehicles might start selling Nissan's 4X4s under the Renault brand.

How to Buy a Car With Cash

Autos For Sale

In early 2015, I began hearing rumors of the new Ford Focus RS. I had been toying with the idea of buying a new daily driver, since my bright idea to daily driver a Lamborghini was not turning out the way I had planned. The rumors slowly became facts, and the car hit many of the things I was looking for. It was fast (I can track it!), it had all wheel drive (for the Seattle rain), it had four doors (great for hauling my pug around), and most importantly it was going to be cheap enough that I could justify giving away our other car to my wife’s parents, who desperately needed a new vehicle.

In September 2015, before the order books were open, I began searching for a dealer who actually had an allotment. I had heard stories of people who ‘ordered’ other high demand cars such as GT350s only to find out, months later, that their dealer in fact was never going to receive one. Luckily, a friend of mine knew the General Manager of a Ford dealer located 4 hours away who not only had a single allotment, they would sell it to me for MSRP! I want to stress that this dealership has been GREAT through this whole process. They are also victims in Ford Corporate’s horrible bungling of the situation and I’m sure they want nothing more than to get my car to me.

The order books officially opened on October 12th of 2015 and I placed one of the very first orders for a fully loaded Nitrous Blue Focus RS. My dealer commented how, due to how fast we placed it, this could be one of the first 5 delivered on the West Coast. We tentatively thought it could arrive as soon as January, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

January came and went with no car. This wasn’t a huge surprise to me as they had just started building them. My dealer kept insisting my car should enter ‘Production’ status any day now, so I still kept tabs every couple of weeks. In February is where things started to go wrong. The factory was shut down for 3 weeks to fix something on all the cars produced to that date, and to change the tooling to prevent whatever issue was plaguing them from happening any more. Ford never officially communicated on this, but rumors were that it had something to do with the Rear Drive Unit (RDU) on the car. The RDU unit was brand new, cutting edge technology so some hiccups were to be expected.

Cars were being built, but mine was nowhere in sight. We obviously weren’t going to be one of the first 5 on the West Coast, but I was sure I’d get my car in due time. The only problem was this — Ford wasn’t giving anyone any information. The production process was and still is a complete mystery. As of this writing, there are people that ordered the same day as me (October 12th) whose cars have STILL NOT BEEN PRODUCED.

The savior of both myself and everyone else on the Focus forums were two anonymous Ford employees who, in their spare time, were secretly giving us information of our cars. It was through these two heroes that I was told the day my car started production — March 13th. My car’s production was halted at one point (as were others) to fix yet another issue, but it was ready to be shipped out in April. Along with a couple hundred other cars, it was loaded onto the Grand Legacy late April and made way for Newark, New Jersey. The Focus forums had a lot of fun as we all tracked the ship in real time — and one fan even snuck on to the boat to take pictures once it docked!

Users tracked the Grand Legacy in realtimeSomeone even snuck on the boat. My car is somewhere in there!

And this is where the fun stops. Ford found out about the employees on the forum and told them to cease all information exchange. My car was unloaded in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th and that is the last time I’ve heard anything. Seriously. It has now been 10 weeks since my car has been unloaded and I don’t have it. I don’t know what it’s doing at the docks. Ford won’t tell me. I don’t know when it will be delivered. Ford won’t tell me. Ford told all RS owners to start contacting Ford Service on Facebook (seriously), who are outsourced customer support who read off scripts.

This helpful nugget was after 8 weeks sitting in port.

And that’s where we are today. My dealer can’t get any information — literally. His calls to Ford Corporate go unanswered. I tried emailing up the chain and received this absolute gem of an email from their crack support team:

They flat out tell a customer buying a $40,000 car they will no longer respond to them

I tried contacting them on Twitter. On Facebook. I even e-mailed Mark Fields, the CEO. I thought that was going to get the ball rolling as I received an email response from a real human, but it’s been 3 weeks and my car is still missing. I’ve offered to fly in and pick the car up, they won’t allow that. They can’t even give me an ETA. I had registered for the Virginia City Hillclimb after the car docked in May, figuring 5 months was plenty of time, and now it looks like I’m going to miss it.

What’s even worse is I’m not even the worst off. As I previously mentioned, there are people who ordered the same day I did who don’t even have production dates yet. I’m hoping Ford sees this and begins to fix their atrocious customer support system, and actually gives information to consumers. It’s insane that in today’s Same Day Delivery world, we can’t track something as major as a car.

To end on a funny note, there was someone in my position who got tired of waiting. In the time his car has been sitting in purgatory in Newark he went out, ordered a new STI, they built it, shipped it to him, and he took delivery before his car made it out of Newark. Maybe I should do that instead.

Lets face it, buying a car is not easy. When you need help, you turn to the internet but many times,the internet either does not have what you need or it has too much of information. So, we at Zoomo decided we will create the ultimate used car guide which will have everything you need to know about used cars and simplify the process of buying used cars. In this article, we talk about why buying a used car is better than buying a new car.

First of all, let me state the obvious, buying a new car is not exactly a good idea. The only good thing is that you don’t have to be that careful and you get the new car smell but you are paying a huge price for that smell. When you sell the new car, you will lose more than you would want to. Buying used cars does not drain your wallet. Its just that you have to becareful and not buy the first car you find. Its important to do good research on the cars regarding which wewill be creating more guides soon.

Reason No. 1 — More car for same amount of money

Think about it, if your budget is 6 lakhs,you can buy a brand new Maruti Swift, it’s a nice car, but still tiny littlecar. Not the type people would have a second look at or not the car to enjoy long trips. Now, if you were to buy a used car, you could be driving a Honda City. It’s a beautiful, quite luxurious and a powerful car. So why settle for something small when you can have it big? Check out this table which shows more examples of how you could buy a bigger used car

Reason No. 2 — Same car for less money

There is one more angle to the earlier point, Lets take an example of mid-range sedan like the Honda City 1.5 MVT. For a new Honda City, you will have to spend around 13 lakhs including road tax etc of over 2 lakhs. Now, if you were to sell the car within the next two years or so, you would lose at least 3–4 lakhs, which means the depreciation is over 2 lakhs per year. Instead, if you buy a 2 year old used Honda City, you would be spending only around 8.7 lakhs. Now, when you sell this used city after driving it for 3 years, you will lose only 3 lakhs in 3 years depreciating at 1 lakh per year. So what we can see here is that,by buying a used car, you are incurring less depreciation, avoiding paying all the road tax and in total, making a smaller down payment

Reason No. 3 — Cars are meant to last looong

Cars are built to last years, and most cars for at least 2,00,000 kms. So when you are buying a used car which has run less than 40000 kms, you have nothing to worry about because they will easily run for another 100000 kms without any major changes. If you give it the right amount of care, you will only have the occasional trips to the service centre.

Not only that, Usually most first owners love their car and take it around carefully. They wash it regularly, and service it only from the company itself. They are probably the only one driving it so the car will be pretty smooth. To ensure that the car was maintained well, you should either buy certified cars or get the car inspected with the help of an expert which Zoomo provides.

Reason No. 4 — Used cars are ideal for beginners

Bought a new car and didn’t like it? Sell it and you are gonna lose a lot of money. Bought a used car and didn’t like it? Just sell it and you are not going to lose much money. You don’t have to worry about giving the car too much care because, a little scratch or dent, here or there is not going to affect the value as much as it would have if it was a new car. This means, used cars are always best for first time drivers.

Buying a used car involves pretty low risk, unless you did not get the car inspected. It’s very crucial, that you get an expert to inspect the car and that you test drive it. Zoomo offers inspections for only Rs.299 on any car in Bangalore. Having said that, buying used car has low risks and is also a good idea for anyone who is buying cars for the first time.

Reason No. 5 — Used cars are better for the planet

If everyone kept buying new cars, there is going to be more cars than the world can handle. Companies like Airbnb and Ola cabs is encouraging more and more sharing of each other’s resources and it’s important that we continue to move towards a society which shares and utilizes its resources smartly. Used cars plays a crucial part in helping us have a better planet to live in. Think about it, when we were small, we used to wear our elder sibling/cousins clothes and play with their toys, and now that you have grown up, you could own cars similarly.

Rental cars have a reputation for being abused, which makes some people wary of buying one. However, the reputation is exaggerated, and rental car sales are in fact a legitimate and growing business. Rental cars do have abusive drivers on occasion, but they are well-maintained by the rental company and usually retired after less than two years of service. They are then inspected before being offered for sale. They also come with pretty good warranties, so far as used-car warranties go. If you're in the market for a new car, consider buying a rental.
