Individuals can buy used cars in El Salvador by working with a private seller on classifieds sites such as Encuentra24.com, Craigslist.org, QuieroUnCarro.com or Used-Car.org. One can also locate a used car dealer using a dealer locator site such as Used-Cars1.com.
Encuentra24.com allows users to search through all available listings for used cars by several factors, including the price of the vehicle, the year of its manufacturing, make and model as well as special features such as transmission type. Users can also filter results based on the geographic region of the seller within El Salvador, such as San Miguel, La Paz or San Salvador. Each listing contains a picture of the vehicle and a description of its condition and any available features or special functions. Users interested in purchasing a vehicle need to work out specific details with the individual seller.
Listings on Craigslist.org also contain pictures of the used car along with a written description. However, as the site allows anyone with a valid email address to post to the site, rather than require a paid or free membership, the quality of each listing varies. If one needs to contact a seller to ask questions about a specific car, Craigslist provides an email relay service that protects the actual email address of both parties involved.
