Used Prius Car Hunting
Finding a used car---especially a popular model that everyone is on the look-out for---can be a frustrating experience: pricing is outrageous, availability is low. However, knowing where to look and what to look for can put you ahead of other shoppers.
As an example, here is a very useful video from the Car Care Nut who shows us a 2009 Toyota Prius “…that most people wouldn't look at twice and would completely ignore in their used car hunt,” says the video’s host.
Although the showcased Prius has obviously had a rough life, it was exceptionally well taken care of mechanically and had actually came from a government vehicle fleet with some extras you would want.
Here’s some sound advice from the host who shows why you should not judge a car by its cover; but rather, “Judge the used car by looking at areas no one would think to shine up and make look pretty, underneath!” as he points out some of the benefits of buying a used government vehicle.
