There's some cheap cars at the auctions. Very good buys to be had. For eg 2000 AU2 Forte's around $16 or $17k (last year). I've bought a few cars from the auctions (Pickles/Fowles), but nothing that new though. Most newer cars (from the fleets) are usually in good nick, and a hell of a lot cheaper than buying from a car dealer. As Road Warrior pointed out, if there's an issue with the car (low k's) the warranty usually covers it.
