Recently I drove by car dealership and could not help but notice a large banner that states “Lets Face It…Who Has Good Credit, Everyone Approved”. Though there is a lot of truth to the banner one thing is certain buying a car at a dealership is typically not a fast process. There are plenty of car auctions in Los Angeles where you can buy a car in approximately 30-60 seconds!
Dealing with a salesman and the finance manager can be a long unpleasant experience. If your in the market for a quality used vehicle you may want to consider buying at a public car auctions in Los Angeles.
