Seconded - plus most of the stuff on there is crap. The truth is, in the wake of Cash-for-Clunkers, used car inventories are so low and prices so high relative to wear and tear, that you're almost better off trying to negotiate a zero-down lease on a new vehicle if money is tight - you usually eliminate maintenance expenses this way, and get to drive a new vehicle. I am a convert to this approach after years of rejecting leasing.
I am an occasional buyer of "case leftover" lots, particularly of Bowman products - PM me if you have unsearched base/chrome/refractor/non-numbered insert lots from Bowman cases!
