If you are in the market for CUV (compact utility vehicle) or SUV, they now is the time to get one! I have posted up realistic prices that you can get these vehicles for. The Chevy Trax LS model can easily be had for under 15K with some negotiation. It is a very basic vehicle and does not even have cruise control!

I would step up to the Chevy Trax LT with convenience package model or even better the Buick Encore Preferred model. The Buick has a better warranty than the Chevy. Both of these can be had for under $16K with some strong negotiation skills. The Buick Encore Preferred comes well equipped as is. Both vehicles get fantastic gas mileage, easy to maneuver and get excellent safety data with 5 star rating.

Some people complain how slow they are. There is a fix for both the Chevy and the Buick. For the Chevy, they have a flash that can increase your power for $300. With the Buick, they have this option too, but you can get the more powerful direct injection engine. It does not get much better gas mileage than non-direct injection engine, but gives acceptable power. You can get a flash from Trifecta or Bad News Racing to give it even more power! Keep in mind that the optional more powerful engine will add about $1000 and hard to find right now.

If you need a larger vehicle, the Chevy Equinox or GMC Terrain might work for you. The Chevy has a 1.5 turbo engine that gets similar gas mileage compared to the Trax/Encore. It has a lot more room all around. You can easily get a the Equinox or Terrain for under $20K. If the 1.5 turbo is too slow for you, you can get the 2.0 turbo engine which is a lot faster. However, you will be in the low 20s for this engine option.

Keep in mind to get the great prices, you need to own or lease a 1999 or newer competitor vehicle. You don't have to trade it in, but to get the crazy advertised prices like $13795 for Buick Encore, you need a trade in too. All of these deals require financing, but you only have to finance $7500 for 3 months. Also, keep in mind most of these prices do not include dealer fees which vary from $199 to $1300 extra. Act fast as Monday is the last day for the deals!

Screw you for using the $0.01 price to get more views for your blatant advertisement. I'm sure you probably work in the marketing department for the dealership, but manipulating price fields isn't OK. Even if you're just some sucker who is promoting them for some other reason, it's not OK.

Sorry I did not add a price to the bottom column since this is for multiple vehicles. Idiots like you are the reason I never post on here! I don't work for a marketing department, just trying to get some people who need basic transportation for a good price! Be a lemming an buy a Honda or Toyota for $10K more.

You not posting here would be welcome in this case. And calling me the idiot isn't helping your case when you're already trying to use that as your own defense.

Not adding a price and putting in a fake price are two different things. The system doesn't default to a 0.01 price, you have to manually enter the price and if you don't, it won't allow you to submit.

Using 0.01 is a common tactic to get more views since it will often trigger deal alerts set for freebies.

I didn't put any price in the blank. I did notice that there was something in the column when I skipped but did not realize it would be on the title.

You are a complete joke to SD, being a member since 2013 and only having 42 posts and 61 reputation.

I created another one with one of the prices. Sorry I have not posted on here in a long time, due to all the hatred that is one the site recently.

We are not that lucky here in GA. We have to pay tax on the full vehicle price with a lease. Then if we want to buy the car at the end of the lease, we have to pay tax again! Such a rip-off.

Not if you keep the car for 20-25 years. I am rocking my mom's 1995 Maxima and it is better than a lot of the new cars out there. Better NVH than a brand new Camry!

Nothing you said has any relevance to my statement though. In fact, you then made a following statement which supports what I said but is still not very relevent. Are you doing ok? lol

I am just saying if you buy a new car to keep for a long time, then not a bad deal. If you pick a reliable car that needs minimal work to keep it going 20 years, even better!

Your chances of getting a new car to last a long time if you have owned it the whole time is usually much better than buying used. One guy at work went over 25K miles without an oil change!

Dodge/Jeep can't make a transmission last long to save their lives! The only missions that were decent were the ones that the Lexus LS400 used too.
