Although I've seen a lot of FB marketplace ads lately with "as is" cars from dealers. They hold on to trade ins for 30 days before going to auction, selling them with a great big "as is, no guarantee" warning. The warning sounds scary but it's just a mandated statement.
Any chance I could get as good a deal on one of these cars versus getting a private sale?

Or are you saying someone brings in a trade in and gets $5k as trade in allowance; they sell it to me for $6K and I only pay taxes on the $1K difference?

I'm leaning to the Accura because at under 14K km per year it's been babied.
