... with impound auctions.

Taxes are back, and my wife wants me to get an SUV, and we don't want another car payment because it'll be another $300 per month that we don't want to spend anyway.

The last time I went to a car auction was 2011, when retail prices for used cars were ridiculous. I had $1500 in my pocket hoping to get into a retired police car. The only car that sold for less than $1500 was a 95 Ranger with a rod knock.

So have prices settled back into reality or should I try another avenue to get a cheap Jeep/4runner/etc?
