That area of Chicagoland in Illinois that contains Cook County is said to contain close to half the total population of Illinois and is second only to Los Angeles County California in terms of population. Whichever way you look at it that’s a lot of people and it is certain that many of them will be old enough to have a driving license and, in our culture, that will mean that most of them either own an automobile or, plan to get one as soon as practical.
Choice Of Automobile
This is usually based on a blend of practicality, wishful thinking and economic considerations. At some point, a decision is made as to whether the vehicle should be a sedan, a compact, an SUV or, a pickup truck, etc., etc. The starting up entrepreneur may decide on a modern pickup truck to double up as his delivery vehicle and his family transportation; a young family may choose an SUV to get the kids to school in and the driving commuter might opt for a fuel efficient or hybrid compact saloon.
At this point, the economics kick in. Should they buy a brand new auto or a preowned one that is in as good a condition as possible? Will it be an outright cash purchase or, will some form of financing be required?
Maybe they have a manufacturer preference in mind, or possibly that is considered a secondary facet amongst their choices. Obviously the likes of Ford and Chevy will readily spring to mind; whereas many are somewhat wary of buying an import.
For those economically sound enough to afford brand new; the final purchase can be easily arranged through the main dealership or distributer for the vehicle they have in mind. But, what about those who have little choice but to purchase a previously owned auto; how do they arrange this?
The Second Hand Car Market
Cars can and are regularly sold by one individual getting in contact with another but such “direct” buying does carry risks for those without a good knowledge of motorcars. For this reason, many will prefer the security available from using a second hand car lot. In this respect, it should be noted that all the dealers in new cars offer part exchange on any new vehicle that they sell. This means that they usually have quite an inventory of older cars for sale. Let’s say that you are looking for Used Fords In Hickory Hills; your local Ford dealership would have taken any make in part exchange but it is more than likely that, brand loyalty on the part of his customers, has resulted in the majority of his used car inventory in Hickory Hills being used Fords.
