Nothing fishy about one of the most well known national auto auctions in the country. Just because a Hummer says it's current bid is at $4,000 does not mean that you can buy it for $4,000. It is an auction, there is a date at which the auction ends. Just like ebay, 99% of the time and people bid at the last minute where the price is more realistic.

If you're looking for a GOOD used car, than go to a dealership and buy a new car or take your chances with a preowned car. If you're looking for a cheap car that you can either fix on your own for cheap using resources available to you than Copart and other auto auctions may benefit in your favor. I have used Copart for buying a donor car for myself or friends when building a car and you need more than just a few odd things here and there. Whatever you don't use, you can just sell.
