Best car experience...buying in low demand area, selling in high


Bought an 05 Subaru Legacy GT at the end of the model year in southern Indiana.

It was a really sporty, fast, fun car that you never saw in the area. I felt like I got a reasonable deal when I bought.

Fast forward a couple of years, I move to Colorado and wanted to buy something that would take me deep into the dirt tracks all over the mountains. I bought a Land Cruiser and traded in my Subaru. I think the difference between what I bought it for and what I sold it for was maybe $3k. Only time I felt like I didnt get hosed buying and selling a car.
