Car Buying Websites
For anyone interested in buying a car, there's no shortage of online
opportunities, these days. Basically, car buying websites fall
into three broad categories. One category contains sites that
represent companies selling cars from their premises or via a
network of dealers in the case of car manufacturers. Another
category contains sites that connect potential buyers with
dealers and private sellers. The third category contains
websites that give useful advice and information to anyone
interested in buying or selling a car. Here are a few of the
more popular car-buying websites.
