  4. Private Prisons

    The Black Hole

    Where do you all recommend I look to finance a car bought in a private sale. With interest rates going up perhaps just going to my local back is not the best idea. What are your thoughts or recommendations? TIA, Tom

  20. Trading-In vs. Private Sale - Which is better?

    Anything Auto
    Yes... the inevitable will happen, most likely sometime this winter. What I'd like to know is what is better, trading or selling? If I were to buy a new car right now, the trade in of my car is ~$13,000. The private retail value is ~$15,500. Is the extra $2500 worth the hassle of advertising...
