I wonder where I can buy a good used honda in Los Angeles. Do you have any ideas? Should I go through a dealership? Or just try to find one through a private party?

Our main site, which is US-centric is Temple of Vtec at http://www.vtec.net. We have some arrangements with Honda dealers for readers interested in new Hondas. I recommend you go over to our main site and towards the upper half on the left hand side, there are options for readers to make enquiries for new Hondas. Do check it out to see if it might be able to help you. Of course I will still strongly advise you to also shop around to get best deals. Plus make a visit to the dealer most convenient to you and check the car out for yourself, test drive etc. For used Hondas, our TOV Forums allows you to make enquiries if you join as a member. There are some car salesman in the forum and they are pretty dependable so far. Hope you find your Honda soon.
