In addition to purchasing a used car from local dealers, it is possible to buy one through various online retailers, including Cars.com, Auction Auto USA and Usedcars.com. The websites provide detailed information and tools to help customers find suitable cars for their needs.
Cars.com provides an online application that enables buyers to search for used cars near their own physical locations. The website automatically detects the location of the website visitor and provides tools to search for a preferred car within a specific budget. Auction Auto USA utilizes a bidding formula that requires a user to place a bid, and at the end of the auction, the highest bidder becomes the owner of the car. Usedcars.com requires users to manually select preferences in the search for a used car.
