Ami katz is good (no personal experience with him)
Just keep in mind all his cars are ex-rentals (I think from enterprise) usually with some minor damage, could be only cosmetic.
I don't believe you can check out the car first. (Unless he has it in his driveway)

who pays 'extra margin'?  :D

They're actually both competitively priced and reputable.
Esp if you're not buying a standard used (i.e. off-lease Accord/Camry/Odyssey/Sienna/Pilot), it always pays to shop around.

I personally would, as a good number of people don't treat rentals well.

Old argument. Well maintained vs likely/possible abuse.
But the truth is, you have the same problem with off-lease vehicles. Potential cheap repair jobs and abuse. Speak to people who lease their cars and ask about the TLC their vehicles receive. You have to do your due diligence and not just write it off cuz it's a rental...
Although my theory is, if you're going to be buying a minivan, most minivan renters are not hormone-fueled male drivers in their teens/early 20s, or stressed out BMG guys coming back from a bad date...

Agreed. How about buying a used car off someone who bought it brand new?

Do you know them personally? Do they have maintenance records or maintenance records showing on Carfax?
Do they have teenagers?  ;)

I bought my car from Lakewood Auto Sales. I'm liking to sell it now... it's a 02 Avalon XLS with 77K. It's yours for $7000
