Ford dealers

The US has a great system of buying and selling cars. Everything is quite regulated, systemized and straightforward. Well, at least that what I experience when as a college student and while working in Kansas City. It was just so simple to go and buy a car, and generally you were quite sure that you were not being made a fool of.

My first car was a Ford Escort, a four door, red hatchback that made me feel on top of the world. It was a good college time car, gave me almost no trouble at all, considering I had almost no idea how to look after it. With my very limited budget, I set out to look for a nice, clean and cute car that wouldn't leave me stranded in the middle of nowhere...and in Kansas, a lot of places can be the middle of nowhere.

The great thing about buying a car in the States is the ease access to dealerships, the rules they have to follow and the open knowledge of car values of every make, model and year. Take the Maryland Ford Dealers for example, they have a good listing of all the dealers in the area, based on where you live, what model you are interested in buying and whether its a new or used vehicle. Its a great resource for someone who is wanting to buy a car, really simplifying what earlier used to be a crazy run-around process.
