08-23-2000, 02:58 AM
I was looking around for used cars and i happen to stumble upon this website http://www.fsg500.com/ they say that u can but a car for about 200$ nearly new and stuff. They get their cars by the government confiscating the vehicles. i thought it was a deal so i suggested to post this forum up in here. I think its a pretty good deal, but you will have to pay a 45 doller fee for registering i think...

SCAM SCAM SCAM
NO such thing as govt acution cars for $100 (or $500, etc) unless theyre total junk....
THERE WAS one fluke recently, an SFPD cop car ( a good one) complete with light bar, siren, computer, etc. was mistakenly placed in the category of non-running cars in a local auction, so someone got a running cop car and about $3000 extra equipment for $700 (police cars are normally stripped before beign sold)

"I'll take two Mercedes one Lexus and a large Coke please!" "What?.........$75.00! Your out of your mind"....." I paid $45.00 Last week!" "What's going on"? "Are you trying to rip me off?" Cheesch!"

i dont know how many of you have been to these auctions, but there are no deals to be had. they cannot verify whether a car has a salvaged title or not before you buy, so you may actually get ripped off if you dont know what to look for. if you want a crappy car that gets good gas mileage you may save $1000 bucks at an auction, but the risk really isnt worth the reward unless you are good at repairing cars. i cant tell you how many stories i've heard of people buying a lexus for $2000-$4000 less than street value only to find out it needs at least that much in repairs or has $2000 worth in dmv fines

You can get decent cars from auctions who sell cars from the Federal GSA fleet. I bought a '93 Dodge Spirit 4 years ago for about $2000 less than market value. I have had excellent results from this car and would buy another one in a heartbeat. This is no repo Lexus, though.
