I retired from being a Car Salesman in 2017. Within one week of beginning my retirement I started getting calls from lots of my previous customers.
They were in the Market for another car or a car for the kid, yea, the freshman.
Anyway I would jot down as much information about the Car they tried to describe to me. Then, I would go online and start searching.
I noticed that one of the most valuable and informative vehicle search sites was Edmunds.
In my mind I had struck gold. Everything is there. Location based, lots of clear vehicle images, expert reviews, vehicle history reports and so on.
For this Tip; My best advice is to use Edmunds.com to Find the Perfect Car
