Don’t do these 5 things when buying a used car

1. Don’t buy a car in the first ten days it’s been listed. Unless you have a great deal staring at you in the face, be patient. Dealerships don’t typically lower the price of a vehicle in the first ten days of listing it online. Any cars still available after that ten day window are fair game to negotiate and bargain your way to a great deal. If the price is still high after a price drop and you’re not in a rush to buy, just keep waiting. The typical used car on Mojo Motors drops in price about three times before being sold.

Cool Used Car of the Future: Rossion Q1

The Rossion Q1 is sexy and American which is saying a lot since there aren’t many American super cars.

Rossion has the exclusive rights to use the M400 platform and rebrand the super car as the Q1 right here in the USA.

Camo'ed out: Ram Mossy Oak vs Chevy Silverado Realtree

In a recent Mojo Motors survey of our Facebook fans, we wanted to find out their favorite camouflage brand: Realtree or Mossy Oak. There were over 400 responses and Realtree came out on top with 61% of the vote. This is good news for Chevrolet who recently showed off their 2500 HD Silverado Realtree concept. The two brands teamed up to create the “ultimate hunters truck” even though minus the custom paint job and some camouflaged accents, the truck is no different than a normal 2500 HD Silverado. Alright, we lied. The concept pickup truck has a custom winch, custom shell and over-sized tires, but other than that, it’s nearly identical to a normal 2500 Silverado.
