We’re thinking about possibly purchasing a car for our son (who is a teenager - newly minted driver) but don’t want to spend a lot of money. We found a state surplus auction site. Would it be worth taking a risk on one of the more reliable brands (Toyota Prius, or Honda CIvic, is what I’m thinking). We can’t bid on multiple auctions because the ones we are looking at all end on the same day and we don’t want to end up having more than 1 car (LOL)! but most likely won’t get any.
Sounds like a small pain to go and get the car (some fees associated with it, have to obtain a temporary plate, etc.), but if we get it at a good price…
(cannot test drive it, but can go see it and make sure it runs before - start the car that’s about it).
Does anyone have an opinion on this? Or have done it? Successes? Failures? Thoughts?
