We (my wife, our 15m daughter and me) will live in San Francisco for a year. I will work and my wife will be at home with our daughter. All we need is a car (with 4+1 wheels) that does not need repair, can be used for shopping, moving around a little during the weekends, and can be sold again (for maybe 50-60% of the original price) towards the end of next June.
I found two low priced reasonable cars at craigslist yesterday, both gone (postings deleted) by today. I cannot tell whether they were sold. Shall I contact used car agencies? Or have a look at kbb.com? I was told several times that I should carefully “do my homework” (= check the condition of the car) when buying through individual ads.
Thanks in advance for any comments !!
