No! Don’t sell your car on Craigslist! Sell your car to CBU!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 29, 2017

I know I talk about my friends a lot on here, and mention their 5 brain cells from time to time, but this guy has all cells firing and simply didn’t know about Car Buyer USA. When he told me he was selling his truck, my quick response was, “No! Don’t sell your car on Craigslist! Sell your car to CBU!” We buy cars, 2004 and older, and we do it the right way. The convenient way.

Car Buyer USA - We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVss

Meet Rob, former owner of a black 2008 Honda Pilot. Nope, he didn’t sell it to us, but if he had he wouldn’t have had to deal with the frustrations of:

  • Price hagglers
  • Countless emails
  • Countless phone calls
  • No shows

If he’d known We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs 2004 and older, and that includes running or not and all those shiny without so much as a scratch or those all scratched or banged up, then he would have sold his Pilot 3 months ago.

I cannot stress it enough. The easiest, fastest, and the absolute safest way to sell your car, truck, van, or SUV is to fill out our short form and we’ll take it from there. Heck, you can even call us for a 20-second offer too and we’ll get the ball rolling for you!

Something car related, but not directly related to selling your vehicle we feel is important to spread the word on, is Car Buyer USA feels it’s important you know about diminished value. Ever heard of it? If not, you’re in the company of millions! Vehicles that have been in car accidents, no matter how well repaired, have a diminished value. Companies will lead you to believe the value of your car, truck, van, or SUV is still worth what it was before the accident. NOT TRUE! The value can drop drastically! Don’t let insurance companies fool you. After you’ve gotten your 20-second instant offer, pop over to and find out what diminished value is.

Don’t forget! You can sell your car, 2004 or younger car in any condition, running or not the easy, fast, and safe way. At Car Buyer USA we buy cars and we want your car, truck, van, or SUV! What are you waiting for? Fill out our short form for your 20-second offer now!

Cut to Scene 2: You Put Transmission Fluid Where? Dude, it’s time to run.

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 04, 2017

Bringing You Up To Speed

Boyfriend – as in man, male, guy, dude – decided I was “a girl” and wasn’t smart enough to put oil in my 1989 Chevy Z24 so “the man” better handle it.” Cut to scene 2 and I’m standing there trying to comprehend – “You put transmission fluid where?”

I’ll admit, I was a tad nervous and so excited I felt my southern redneck girl creep out. Before I knew it, it was all I could do to keep my calm. Then there was that awkwardness you feel because you’re not use to how the pedal responds; and the feel of that sound coming out of those dual exhaust pipes. It was music to my ears. I definitely missed my calling; should’ve done something seriously profound for a girl and cars.

Traffic is clear and it’s a go. I put a little pressure on the pedal, seriously just a little and that sucker peeled out. I was in love. One 1989 Chevy Z24 sold. It had a new home. Mine. Picked her up the next day bright and early and she was my pride and joy. Talk about “no one puts baby in the corner”, I could have written that line. And don’t you dare touch her; you put a smidgen of so much as a finger print on her and we’re gonna be rolling in the grass. Yep, this Georgia girl may be able to clean up all nice a proper, but I definitely know where my inner red neck is and when to bring her out.

Cutting to the chase, the poor dummy ex-boyfriend (as in male, man, guy) argued I was a girl and didn’t know how to check the oil much less add it. I should really just accept I knew better so the fault lies with me. It was him after all; the lawn man who put car engine oil in the lawnmower. Dead as a door nail. I swear I never laughed so hard. Well, that’s not true. He gave me many moments of “no you di’int!” Maybe this was a karma moment for me?

What person, male or female, doesn’t confirm what they have in their hand before they pour it into a car engine? I know one, and I lay odds he’ll never do it again. But seriously, learn your lessons on your own time and dime.

Anyway, thankfully his best friend knew more than a thing or two about cars, told me what to do and I TOOK IT from there. The ex, however, he still gets called out on it. Thankfully, for the dummy, he didn’t seize the engine and I didn’t have to park baby in the corner; and he never put transmission fluid into anything where it didn’t belong again. Thankfully, for me I didn’t have to sell my car; I thought for sure I’d be looking for companies that buy dead cars, but nope. I drove that sucker until she’d only go in reverse. Now that was a fun drive home. Eh, this single mom wasn’t about to pay for a tow. The kids were expensive things, ugh I mean they came first and if I could save a buck, I saved a buck. I just backed it all the way home. Maybe I’ll tell you about that next.

Ever have anyone do something to your car by mistake? Something common sense says, don’t miss a step? Did it kill your car, truck, van, or SUV? If so, you’re in luck. We buy cars running or not so call us up and sell your car today easy peasy nice and squeezy, and safe and fast.

Scene 1: You Put Transmission Fluid Where? Dude, it’s time to run.

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 03, 2017

This started out as a compilation of funny car repair stories that I figure if I think they’re funny, I’d give you a good laugh. It took a turn when I realized the stories some of the mechanics were telling fell into that “I guess you had to be there.” I don’t know how some of the guys posting their “funny stories” think they’re funny; but again... I guess you had to be there. This little ditty falls into that “you’ll look back at this one day Linda and laugh.” It only took about 21 years. I’ll never get over the “My brain doesn’t’ register what you’re sayin’ fella; repeat that please. You put transmission fluid where? You cranked it to see if it’d work what way?” Ok, it’s time to run dude. “Pleeease tell me I won’t have to sell my car for junk.”

There it was, sitting there just waiting for me. Twice a day for weeks I drove by it. I’d have conversations with it. I’d tell it I loved it, that it needed to be mine. Then the day came; I pulled in and took it out for a test drive.

Listen to that engine.

I climb into the seat and buckle up, turn the motor over and that engine. It rumbled like my daddy’s ’59 Vette and sounded like its sole purpose was to own the streets. (Did you hear that engine in the video?) I ease up to the edge of the lot and stop…

Just like I used to tell my English Lit Professor at SUNY in upstate NY that emailed me so many times for how my essays was going to end, “You’re going to have to wait until tomorrow.” What? I’m not leaving you hanging. There’s a part two, you’ll just need to wait until tomorrow.

I will say this to let you know where this story is going.

I’m no mechanic, but I have enough sense to know you don’t put transmission fluid in the engine. “I don’t care if it is dark outside and you grabbed the wrong one! You’re a guy! What guy does that?”

By the way, I should mention; have I told you that you can sell your car to us New York? For that matter, anywhere in the continental U.S.? Well, you can if you fill out our short form for a 20-second offer or just pick up the phone and dial us up to get the ball rolling. Our live agents take calls all day and We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs in any condition all day too, transmission fluid in the engine or not.

Street Outlaws Busted – Sell Your Car and Get It Out of Impound

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 03, 2017

The first thing to note here is Car Buyer USA does NOT condone, encourage, recommend, or agree with anyone racing illegally. It’s not only dangerous for the drive, it’s dangerous for pedestrians and onlookers. I’m mean honestly; you can never say it “won’t happen to you” and know it won’t. Not to mention, close calls aren’t worth the adrenaline rush either. But, we are smart enough to know people like doing it; and people love watching it. So, this street outlaws busted gets published; and by the way. If you are busted and you can’t afford to get your ride out of impound, we’ve got you covered. Just sell your car to us.

For those who don’t know what street racing is, think of movies; like “Fast and Furious” (the whole franchise), “Cannonball Run”, “Street Racer,” “200 M.P.H.”, “Biker Boyz”, “Born to Race”, “Corrida Contra o Destino”, “Fast Track No Limits”, “Gone in Sixty Seconds”, “Need for Speed”, “Rapidos e Perigosa”, “Redline”, “Vanishing Point”, “Street Racer”, and so many more. I think that paints a good picture of what I’m saying here.

People, me included, love the thrill of meeting in what I used to call the “rush spot” where there is so much excitement in the air; you can feel the rush of the engines revving and there was always just something about being on that street running parallel to I-85 not far outside Atlanta. A bunch of dumb kids, and those older boys who were old enough to really know better all lined up sitting there in the pitch black dark. You could smell the rubber burning and when the engines rumbled, man; this tomboy loved it!

Car Buyer USA - We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVss

Yep, I’d either be sitting in a ’72 Cutlass, a ’71 Pontiac Grand Prix, or my favorite that would have gotten my butt whooped if my dad knew, a ’59 3-speed, hard top Corvette. Talk about a car that rumbled. I knew absolutely no fear back then; being the only 17-year old girl doing it the goal was to win at all costs. It was all about beating those boys at “their game”. I still have that competitive drive in me, but I’m not stupid anymore. I’ve still never told my dad I took his baby out for rides on that stretch. Something tells me he’d still get mad before he’s see how proud he should be. And, I figure him being proud of me scooting full speed across K-Mart parking lot in the ’71 Grand Prix is enough pride – yep, I got busted! Although, he didn’t tell me about watching from McDonald’s with his date, but did mention all he said was, “That’s my girl.”

Something I will NEVER forget; the night Ray didn’t check his oil. His shiny sweet Chevelle went from vroom, vroom to this kind of clunk sound and then just rolled along in dead silence. Ouch. Took more than a hot moment for what happened to register in his noggin. Actually, it took a while for all of us. It was a new sound. LOL, yep I won that night.

Car Buyer USA - We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVss

True story btw.

Can you imagine? The ’59 Vette? Seriously, what an idiot. All fiberglass and motor. I’m lucky I’m alive and didn’t kill anyone. So, I had my street outlaw moments and even though it took years, I still got busted. Funny how kids think parents won’t ever know about the stupid things they do.

Like mentioned above, Car Buyer USA does NOT condone any illegal activities even draggin’ it down a deserted road in the dead of night. But, if you do it and find yourself in a pickle, fill out our short form or give one of our live agents a call for a FAST 20-second offer. Just tell them “I’m a street outlaw, I got busted, now my car is locked up; and I need to sell my car.” Our agent will take it from there; we buy cars even if they’re in the slammer. Then? Well, we recommend you think about using the cash to hire a good lawyer!

Sell Your Car to CarMax and Get Low-Balled – But We Beat Any Auto Buy

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 01, 2017

That’s a strong statement up there and pretty bold of us to tell you if you want to be low-balled then sell your car to CarMax. How do we get away with such an outrageous claim? Because We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs 2004 and up; and we beat any auto buy you’ll find from any other car buyer. We’ll pay you more for your vehicle; we know it and we’ll prove it.

Car Buyer USA bought 2011 Porsche Cayenne

When writing these magnificent posts for you (yep a shameless plug and we’ll just let me think you feel that way), if it’s not something I know from firsthand experience and rattle off without a second thought, I hit the web and do my homework. This one started out as “let’s find some comical bad car sells” to share. Boy was I surprised when my search delivered a bucket full of CarMax complaints. Actually, that’s not really a good description. It’s more like a 5 ton truck! There are TONS OF CARMAX complaints, so many in fact I got tired of reading them. Don’t believe me? Google “I sold my car bad experience” and just start scrolling down. You won’t get far before you see stories of the top 601 complaints on Consumer Affairs; not to mention the ones on other websites, forums, and blogs giving you horror stories, and people down right mad at CarMax.

What did I find that Car Buyer USA does differently? Well for starters, we may buy any car online and we may give you a 20-second instant offer, but we do NOT tell you we’re not interested in inspecting your car to help us pay you the exact number your car is worth. We don’t just go off the cuff at your expense, and time, and tell you a number based on make, model, year, and mileage alone and deliver a firm low-ball number. We invest in you and your car. We know your time is valuable and we don’t make you wait a long time while you’re anxious to know the true number we will pay you for your vehicle. We’re fast, we’re easy, and we promise you’re safe in our hands.
