I've bought my last three vehicles off craigslist. I'm reasonably familiar with evaluating used cars and, with 17 years in the business, know what a deal is.

If I were looking for something newer than five years old, I might try dealers. But I really like buying five+ year old vehicles, because they have a lot of life left but have experienced most of their depreciation.
