Today's Sweet Drive-by Advice

Lately my hubby has been dabbling around in used cars. He seems to think that by buying them cheap and overhauling them a bit he can make a profit. I'm skeptical, but to avoid a fight I've let him do it. (Laughs at the word, "let") We've found a useful site that maybe you would enjoy, if you're like us and never buy new. (An automobile depreciates thousands as soon as you drive it off the dealership lot.)

You can find Cars For Sale in these Used car and truck classifieds. You can list your auto for free. 10 pictures and unlimited text. No credit card is ever required, and your listing stays active until sold. And it's 100% free.

The search function is easy to use. You can search by price, mileage, year and newest. You can also search by location, if you're looking for a car in your area.

You can find the crash test ratings, fuel economy, and recall information, which is hard to find on most used car sites.

There's a loan calculator, insurance quotes available, and auto shipping quotes. There are also reviews you can read, which we found helpful. We looked up our Sebring and our Aveo. It even tells you if your model has had any recalls.

Just passing along that little bit of info in case any of you are looking for a Christmas present for your teen or yourself. As you may have noticed, I'm trying to boost my readership a little bit with more varied content and outgoing links. I'm also experimenting with Google adsense. I'll let you know how that turns out.
