I noticed that many people are using different web resources to find their 'next' cars.

It'll be nice to a have a thread that lists them....so here goes:

I am a big fan of ebay motors because of the many pictures.

Autotrader is a good one too.....a classic. I used them when they were just a print ad.

I like carsdirect as well, good for searching deals on new cars.

www.ebay.com
www.autotrader.com
www.carsdirect.com

Please add your favorite sites....I know there are others out there, I've seen many members post links to them.


Some places to get reviews from owners:

www.carsurvey.org
www.epinions.com

I've used http://www.cars.com

but my ad is on http://www.autotrader.com

I just put an ad in the local paper as well. Hopefully that will do the trick this weekend.

NEW:

USED:

http://autotrader.com/

There are others that I use for second opinion kind of stuff but these are the ones I use the most.

Here's a tip about autotrader: go to Yahoo! Autos. They use Autotrader's database but they have a search by keyword option which autotrader doesn't have. Useful for differentiating between Concours and regular DeVilles for example. Or DTS, DHS and DeVilles...

I'm with Katshot. I like MSN's used car owner's comments, etc. EBAY is cool too.

I've always had outstanding luck finding great deals on vehicles on www.autotrader.com (http://www.autotrader.com). I've also done very well selling my vehicles there. I like their tool to calaulate the value of used cars.....it keeps you from getting ripped off by used car dealers.

This is terrific. Now I can search for my cars based on individual preferences like Xenon lights.

Glad you like it. Never understood why "Yahoo! powered by Autotrader" has it, and not Autotrader themselves...

Yeah...amazed me!
Most of em are really good too.
(overall owner rating of 9.2/10 for the 98 Dev!)

Looks like there's only about 19 reviews for your model year.....I love the guy who just wrote one line "fleetwood very good" LOL!

Funny how some of them talk about the "fantastic" handling characteristics of the 98 dev.....doesn't leave me with much confidence in their reviewing capabilities! (I love my car, but it sure isn't one of the strongest points)

LOL! I did actually...interestingly the overall user rating is 8.9 (0.1 less than the 98 deville!?) I gotta read them with a grain of salt but it sounds pretty encouraging.

Wanna buy it....but the idea of car payments really bug me.

Yours is nice, but I don't like payments either and mines paid 4. :cool:

I'll just save up my money for one of the new Chinese cars when they hit NA..........................NOT!
