    Honestly thats pretty foolish for a number of reasons. One is depreciation. The other is there is almost always problems..... even large ones.... with a new car. Your father sounds like mine!

    A man who buys a used car has had someone else fix the problems. I usually buy 12-18 month old cars with 10-15,000 miles.

    The best time to buy a used vehicle is between Christmas and New Year's. You pick the year.

    Worst time is right now. Dealers jack up the price of used cars around tax season. Get one around the onset of winter.

    Just before it's used.

    Re: When is the Best time to Buy a USED Vehicle?

    I would suggest it depends on how "used" it is

    A leased back (meaning a newer car being brought back from a lease would best be purchased just after the new years models are being brought on the lot ( ie late Oct, Nov and Dec)

    A throughly used car that is going to be treated as a throwaway (when something major goes wrong it is tossed) when ever you can find a good one.

    I expect though that for the majority of used cars more will be on sale for a good price just after christmas or right around income tax time. Ie when people need money to pay for unplanned for bills

    Winter.

    Tax refund (aka spring stimulus) and people just buy more crap in warmer weather to.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
