What sites do you visit to find vehicles for sale?

I am certain many of us use the web to find vehicles for sale. (Personally, we need to purchase a tow vehicle capable of towing a 7200 lb travel trailer.)

I used the Chevy.com website to find the vehicle I wanted to buy. Since I bought the Avalanche 2500, which is hard to find, I narrowed it down to a dealer within 45 miles to purchase my dream tow vehicle.

So far I have had good success with Ebay. I must caution that I only buy where I can go and see the vehicle........

Bought my 1998 Suburban 2500 on Ebay. Flew to see it before handing over the check.

www.carsoup.com seems to have more individual owners, and fewer dealers.

So are we cleaning out the garage, or upgrading? Your Miata was sweet.

More like cleaning out "lifes" garage and I need a new project. After building it out I became bored with it.

I used Ford.com's dealer search to find the new truck we wanted.

Good point Maurice. I used www.jeep.com to find my Liberty.

The dealer locators are great if you are buying new. Punch in exactly what you looking for and it checks the inventory. Most have a copy of the window sticker with all its information. I did the whole transaction over the internet. Just had to go in to sign the papers. In and out in 45 minutes.

We have a weekly publication here in western Canada called the Bargain Finder Press. They allow free advertising (no photo) to private sellers of all items so it is often full of great deals on used vehicles. After their printed publication has been made available for 2 days in the retail outlets, they offer it online for free viewing at Buysell.com. I recently purchased my '95 Chev Cheyenne 2500 extended cab longbox w/ 350 auto, atc, 175k for only $4200CAN = approx. $3000US
