#372 of 381 How much to offer on a rebuilt title...
Jun 02, 2007 (12:11 pm)
Hi there, new to this forum, and I have to say it ROCKS! Anyway, I'm looking at buying an 03' infinity G35 40K miles, in perfect condition. He his asking $13500. There's the catch, it has a rebuilt title. I've driven the car and checked it over, there are no signs of damage, or anything. It drives straight, tires are worn normally. etc...
Edmunds says the PP value is $18754 with a clean title.
So how much to offer? Should I just run the other way?
Thanks in advance for any help.
#374 of 381 State-to-state registration on new car
Jun 13, 2007 (11:03 am)
Help! Is there a forum or thread that already deals with this?
I am moving to Georgia next month for a new job, but plan to buy my new Honda Fit in Texas, my parents' home state, before moving. Should I register my car in GA or TX?
According to GA state law, I must register my car within 30 days of residency. However, in talking to a few dealerships in TX, it seems that I may be able to keep my registration in TX under my parents' address for a period of time?
I wouldn't want to pay double taxes. If I buy as an out-of-state buyer, I can waive the TX sales tax, and just pay GA sales tax at the point of registration. If I buy as an in-state buyer, I pay TX sales tax, but once I register in GA, I'll have to pay GA sales tax anyway (or so it seems). Is there a time limit on these things?? I've read in the forum of people waiting a year to register (e.g. in GA), saving on taxes for that year. It seems to be much cheaper to own a car in TX than in GA, but in my online research, it seems that living in GA and having my car registered in TX would be tax fraud.
Help me understand!!
#376 of 381 2007 Carsdirect.com experiences?
Jun 14, 2007 (9:54 am)
I seem to be having trouble starting a new thread. I hope it worked this time.........
I thought maybe its a strong disservice to the readers to have to weed through 38 Plus pages of a thread that began back in 2001. Especially if you want to hear about how is the Cardirect.com company treating people TODAY?
So even if you already posted your experience in that other thread, maybe with a quick COPY N PASTE you can repost those experiences here.
the question today in 2007 is:
How was your shopping experience with Carsdirect?

#378 of 381 Not sure of what Car to buy
Jun 25, 2007 (5:07 pm)
Hi, I am in the hunt for either a new or used car this winter and I am very undecided what to buy. My limit is around 35K. I was hoping to get a used Audi S4 (2004-2005) but I hear of reliability problems, plus the usual cost of maintaining a German car. I am hoping to get my hands on a reliable, fun driving, quick (fast), women approve kind of car.
Thanks for any direction you can get me in.

#380 of 381 Made a BAD financing decision. What now?
Jul 01, 2007 (5:48 am)
Long story short: my fiance and I bought a Scion a few weeks ago, and while the payment is within our means we ridiculously overpaid by getting suckered into the lower interest rate with the Toyota financing add-ons.
What is the best thing to do at this point? Just pay the loan off as quickly as we can? I am kicking myself over this because I knew this was a bad move but was a first-time buyer and trusted my fiance's judgment.
