Should I Buy a Dodge Charger on the NC State Surplus Auction Website?

If you are looking for a used Dodge Charger or used Dodge Charger Pursuit in North Carolina you have likely stumbled upon the NC State Surplus Auction website or If you have scoured the site, you have seen a number of items up for auction. A few items that are always available are used Dodge Charger models. They can range from $500 to $15,000 depending on the condition of the car and the mileage. So, should you buy a used Dodge Charger from this website?

Before making a bid on any used vehicle, it is important to remember that this is going to be a vehicle you drive off the auction block without having the chance to drive it. You may get the key, turn he ignition and the car doesn’t start. If that is the case, you still have to pay the amount you bid on the auction. You must also remember that these vehicles do not have a warranty nor do you know the actual maintenance on the vehicle. It might be the case that this particular Dodge Charger went for 25,000 miles without an oil change. It could also be a Charger that has been in multiple car accidents.

If you are willing to take the risk, you will be able to save some money. That said, you may through all your money down the drain if things do not work out when you drive the car away. If you happen to be very good under the hood or know a mechanic that can fix almost anything, this might be a good opportunity to buy a Charger and save money. If you have no idea what you are doing under the hood and you don’t know any mechanics, you might want to steer clear of buying a vehicle at auction.

It is also important to note where the auction is located. If you are in Asheville, NC and the auction is in Raleigh, you are going to have to find a way to get to Raleigh to drive the Charger back. This is an important factor as getting someone to drive you three hours is not easy. That is also a very expensive Uber trip.
