Autotrader

Noticed there wasn't a Thread entitled AutoTrader in the X3 Forum so I decided to start one. Great source for finding used cars- mostly dealers and some non-dealers.

If one goes to www.autotrader.com and look up used cars CarFax reports are available for the lion's share of all the cars. You don't have to leave your home computer to do this and most car dealers advertise their used cars here- certified and non-certified.

Yes AutoTrader is decent, I didn't really like the interface too much.

I found mine on cars.com, carfax.com is also good, ultimately I found my car on penfed buying car service which gave me a better APR% since it was a certified dealer with them

I have a issue with auto trader that I do not like. If ads are close to expiring, I tend to get what I consider shill contacts that make it appear there is interest in your vehicle. No. One ever follows up when you answer their questions. I have no way of proving this, but it has happened to many times to be a coincidence.

Found a great (non-BMW) vehicle for my daughter. Saved thousands of dollars on the exact exterior, and interior (rare) colors and options. Had to drive 1 1/2 hours to pick it up, but well worth the effort. Vehicle was newer, had less miles, cost less and it was the exact one we wanted.
