What is the Cheapest State to Buy a Car?

What is the cheapest state to buy a car?

The price of the car depends on its condition and age, not the state where you buy it.

I heard that the price of a car can vary based on where you live.

The price of a car is affected by the sales tax rate. Some places like Texas charge you

sales tax on the car purchase in addition to title and licensing fees.

That hits 10% of the purchase price, doesn't it?

But it is worth it to some people. For example, a lot of Oklahomans buy cars in Texas and

register them there because the sales tax one time is cheaper than the thousand dollars

a year to register the car in their state.

In the case of sales tax, it might be cheaper to shop in a county with a lower tax rate.

And shop the outer edges of a metro area. They'll have lower real estate and overhead

costs, so their cars cost less.

A two hour drive isn't worth it.

It is if you can save a few thousand dollars on a vehicle.

*Where is it cheapest to buy a car in the entire country?

Miami tops that list, but you risk buying a car that was flooded in one of the hurricanes.

I heard that you can get a car really cheap in Detroit.

You can also buy a house for a thousand dollars. In some cases, you can get a house cheaper

than a running used car.

I've read that Ohio has a lot of cheap used cars.

Ohio is deep in the heart of the rust belt. Lots of unemployed people selling rarely driven

cars to pay their rent.

I heard that cars in New York are cheaper than average.

The cars are cheap, but the gas is a killer and the parking space costs more than the

car.
