2. Car of the week
My personal pick of the week!
2022 LUCID AIR
Final bid: $46,250
Solid first effort from a brand-new automaker. It's insanely quick, spacious, and turns heads like a supercar. However, it has flood damage. Sold to Ukraine!
Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
This week, I am taking a look at one of the most popular off-road SUVs: the 2012-17 Jeep Wrangler.
2012-17 JEEP WRANGLER
You can see that the average price for the car was the cheapest in December 2022. Now is the best time to buy a Jeep Wrangler.
