Pros and Cons of Selling Your Car to a Private Party – Used Car Tips by Get My Auto

Hey Everyone, its me Sahara with get my auto.

Here to give you your next tip in when considering to purchase your new used car.

Especially, if you currently still have a car you don’t know if you should, trade it in or privately sell it. Well, basically, we’ll just break it down really quick on the pros and cons of each one so you can see which one fits you and your priorities.

So basically trading it in, let’s break that down. The easiest way. No Logistics. No extra paperwork. It’s smooth and easy. Basically, you drive your vehicle straight to the dealership. They give you an appraisal. Look at the vehicle, and then give you a price. You sign the papers ride off with your next new used car, and that’s it.

Now if you want to know how much they are going to offer you.

Probably, a trade in value. A trade in value is gonna be less than the retail value and that’s gonna be all based on the mileage, year, make and model of your vehicle.

So if you want to know what you going to be expecting before you visit the dealership, just go to and that way you can actually see what you can get as the retail value, and that is gonna be a little more important for you, having it be more lucrative that way you can do private selling. Basically, you would sit on Craigslist and other websites, but, you do have to remember you’re gonna be compromising time and safety.

You have to meet with different people that might want to test drive the vehicle.

And of course, answer some of the questions and something you have to with waiting of time.

Because it’s not always going to be right there where the buyers will be available for you when you’re ready to sell the car. So, that’s a compromise you will be making.

Get My Auto – Benefits of Buying a Used Luxury Car

Hey everyone welcome to Get My Auto!

My name is Sahara and I’m here to tell you that you can own that luxury car that you’ve always wanted. Most motorists want nothing more than to drive a true luxury, plush, fully loaded sporty car. But the problem is that it’s usually pricey and out of the budget for most buyers. But there is an obvious way around, buying a used luxury car.

So there is something to be said about this theory, most luxury car buyers tend to buy a car every 2-3 years. Meaning they are not necessarily conquers as a used purchased car. So you can probably find it for a fraction of that vehicle’s specific original sticker price and have great value left in it. So if you want to know where to get started pay us a visit at but here’s some helpful hints first and for most go ahead and type in your zip code. Find some used car dealerships near you. Narrow down which brand you like the most that fits your lifestyle needs and that way out take it for a test drive. Make sure it has a clean title through CarFax, and then of course you can also pay us a visit at our website and see some choices of our favorites like the Audi A3, A4, 2 liter, 4 cylinders, turbo, or even the Cadillac CTS both the Wagon and the Sedan.

Phenomenal combination between performance technology and design, or one of my very own favorites the BMW 128I, amazing power to weight ratio. This is the last of the naturally aspirated inline 6 engines offered by BMW.

Now this is one that I am very passionate about, why?
because, I too purchased one used. For only 27,000 miles from that original vehicle. Now that was fully loaded and sport package, bottom seat interior, navigation system the whole nine and I purchased it for $25,000 off of its original sticker price. And then 4 years 40,000 miles later I just flipped it for $12,000 to get into my brand new baby, my starlet. So yes ladies and gentlemen it is possible for you to own a luxury, sporty, plush, fully loaded car. And for all of those do’s and don’ts, like I said pay us a visit at
