Default Buying repossesed cars...

Found a good price on a Honda s2k, a few grand under book, so I called up and found it was a repossesed car that a local repo depot bought from a credit union in Florida. Should I even consider this? Would Carfax be a reliable source in this case?

I think that these can be pretty good deals, as long as you do a little research.. I bought a Honda Accord that was repossesed after it was stolen, for a few k under book.. There were some fishy repairs made to the vehicle that were not disclosed to me, but that the seller re-imbursed me for after they were repaired correctly. A letter from the insurance company accompanied the vehicle, and car fax did say it was stolen and recovered, so all the stories corroberated w/ each other. I went for it and have been happy since.. Just make sure you bring it to a shop that can do a full diagnosis on any problems with the car, and try and be a good judge of the poeple your dealing with.

Good luck,

I bought a repo'ed 2002 Mazda Protege 5 wagon this past August from a credit union. I got it for way under book. It only had 4k miles on it and i got it for 13,500. The lot right across the street was selling one for 15,500. No problems at all with it. I financed it through the bank that reposesed it . THey gave mje the best interest rate that i couls find! 3.9%.

I would run a carfax on it and if everything checks out go for it man!

Hope this helps,
~ Joe
