Obama promised to help fix the auto industry, and maybe this is his plan.
Tell Americans that just about all of their cars, trucks, and SUVs will no longer be available and they’ll run out and buy the last new ones around (like light bulbs). It’s working with me. I’m about to buy a large SUV that I have absolutely no use for...but may later on, and I figure it will now keep its value a lot better than my savings.
Just like a veterinarian, "fix" to Obambi (BIRD!) apparently means "neuter".
You're right. Used vehicles are getting pricey. Car dealers have been having trouble keeping up with the demand.
You're better off buying a used car sold privately, and detailing/ cleaning it up and doing any minor repairs yourself. If the dealers and brokers do it, they demand top dollar, because they know they can get it.
My husband and I bought a 2009 Chrysler minivan two months ago because we knew that this kind of car probably would not be available next year and also because once the inflation from the “stimulus” bill kicks in, the cost of cars, new and used, will increase significantly.
