I'm Too Picky
A couple of my friends have recommended CarMax.com to me for when I decide to find myself a new car. Since I wasn't too interested in the Monday Night game I decided to give it a look.
I plugged in my location information and the car I was looking for -- a Honda Accord. Sorting the list on multiple columns (nice touch, even though it's fairly easy to do) I was able to find V6s with manual transmissions and low mileage. CarMax has two. In the entire country. And they're both the coupe model, which is built slightly differently in the back than the sedan model, and I like the sedan better.
On the upside the one I checked out came in about $1,000 under NADA's average retail price for that type of car. So when I finally decide to retire the old Civic it may take me a while to find what I'm looking for.
