It makes sense to use the Internet to hunt for the cheapest 4X4 trucks for sale. From early 2000, pleople started to consider listing websites like Craigslist for price savings when it came to purchasing 4X4 trucks. However, due to some incidents and reports people have raised questions about its reliability and the whole operation of the such Internet websites. There have been reports of some dealers throwing vehicles on Craigslist that were just this side of falling apart, while other sellers have honestly tried to do their best. With that said, here are five ways you can obtain the cheapest 4X4 trucks for sale.
1. Ask a Neighbor
Sometimes you will find you can get a better deal from a private party, such as a neighbor. They may be looking for some quick cash for a down payment on a new 4X4 or for some other purpose. You may be able to work a great deal to your advantage on a vehicle that is in good shape.
Using an Internet source with a great reputation, such as CarsDirect.com for used trucks for sale, should put your mind at ease about the quality of the vehicle, because they have certain agreements with sellers (and buyers).
Surprisingly you will find some great pricing and recommendations on these sites. For example, Edmunds.com has called the Mitsubishi Endeavor a good performer and while it doesn't have a third-row seat, an equal number don't care about the third seat. You can pick up a 2004 for about $8,251.
4. 2003 to 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe
Although this is a full-sized vehicle, you will find it's a great buy if you do lots of driving with a lot of people. It will seat up to nine in very nice comfort. If you plan to tow also, this series is a good idea because the 5.3-liter V-8 does a good job of towing up to 6,000 pounds. A 2003 model Tahoe should set you back about $10,000.
5. The Best Truck Buy on the Road
The best 4X4 truck buy on the market is any Honda CR-V, made from 2003 to 2008. The reason it is a great buy is because it is a very efficient small SUV with more than enough room for five and plenty of cargo space. The amount of cargo space available can rival some of the larger SUVs out there. Hondas have a great record of reliability and have a strong parts supply chain, so getting parts to fix your CR-V will be easy. For all these reasons, the CR-V is the SUV/4X4 for you to look at now. You can find a good 2003 available for about $10,900.
With the top five places in hand, you can save some of your hard earned money to buy your 4x4 truck.
