Find used cars in South Dakota at CarsDirect.com. Most Americans who are familiar with the state of South Dakota know that it's not exactly one of the nation's big population centers. With a unique location in the north of America's very center region, South Dakota has historically not gained a lot of population growth from either the eastern seaboard (a highly populous area) or the major cities of the Northwest. Less than 1 million estimated residents are scattered over more than 77 thousand square miles, making South Dakota a very wide-open state. Along with this relatively low population, the state has some very relaxed legislation, specifically regarding vehicles. The kind of cars and trucks that you may see in South Dakota may be different than what you would be used to in a more populated state. They also may be in differing conditions, due to the fact that the state of South Dakota has no annual inspection mandated for car owners. Drivers coming from states on the eastern seaboard or other areas, where such inspections are routine, may be surprised by some of the vehicles that they see legally on Dakota roads. Because of South Dakota's uncommon situation in regard to vehicle inspections, and also because it's rural topography may affect local demand on the used car market, it can be tough for those new to the area to figure out what's available in used vehicles and how to get the best deals.
