About Us

used car on sale

We started in 2006 with the idea of helping the small cars dealers of the state by publishing a magazine with the 10 cheapest used vehicles in their stocks. Because of the recession during those days and the low budget, we decided to do it on-line nationwide. So far, our goal remains: find and publish cheap cars for sale. Any private owner or dealership can publish free car classified ads here.
