    Every fucking car that is worth looking at, is over priced in Halifax.

    You can't get shit for $4-5,000 that is worth buying.

    People are selling Civics that are 15 years old with 300,000kms on them for $5,000. Fuck you all.

    Have a nice day.

    I was looking thought an Auto Trader on Friday while waiting to get my haircut and I noticed the exact opposite. I couldn't believe how cheap some of the vehicles were, mind you most of what was listed was domestics.

    Being in the business, used cars are probably the cheapest they've ever been. Alot of used 08 domestic cars can be had for 13k-15k.

    PM me with what youre looking for, and a price range.

    yeah I wouldn't buy shit from them. a friend of mine bought a shitty saturn from them, thought it was a great deal, has cost her like $4500 in repairs since she got it last November.. I figured at first well its a Saturn, of course it is gonna be garbage, but to sell something that fucked up really says something about what they sell.

    I find there are tons of great cars to be had these days. Make sure not to rush the decision and get the car checked out before purchase. Spending $50 at a mechanic prior to purchase can save you tons of headache in the future.

    MVI expired on it, it was starting to need work so I decided to sell it, cancel my insurance and just use a demo for now. If something comes along and catches my eye I'll jump on it

    I thing he could sell me a $500 car for $1000. We're in the same business, I know how it works. We don't have any here at the moment, but I just missed a Cavalier for $500 here by an hour. agh.

    It needs a coolant hose or something Dan, drips right down onto the manifold, I could get it to you for not much more than $500 if you actually want it.

    I paid $11,900 for my dog hauler (08 HHR, decently optioned) with 39K on it and bumper 2 bumper warranty until 100K.

    Hate the thing, but its quite a smooth driver suprisingly and its cavernous inside for the two dogs which is why I bought it.

    Best dog hauler for the $ in my opinion.

    BTW, I bought it from Race Auto Group (they were selling it for Forbes) and after 15K on it, not a single complaint except its cheap and ugly

    what is really a pisser is how cheap trucks are in AB compared to here. I'd love not to have to drive one home this summer and just buy it here but fuck paying another $5-6k more.

    what does a truck go for in nova scotia? if anything i would say ontario would be the cheapest. you could probably get a good weekend warrior truck instead of a beat up patch truck

    Who said anything about a patch truck? You couldn't pay me to drive a powerstroke.

    you do know that trucks other than ford are aloud in the oil patch right? i see just as many dodge, chev's and gm as fords.

    not sure what kind of truck your looking to get, but pretty much anything 3/4 ton and up has been either a patch truck or driven like a motherfucker offroad.
