    Our car needs a few too many repairs (ie 1500+) and has over 200k miles, so figured we'd look into a used car. Does anyone have any suggestions for used car dealers in the Disney "area"? Preferably Clermont, but we'd take Kissimmee/Orlando too since we need one shortly (soon). Something reliable, with reasonable mileage, preferably Toyota/Honda (you guys swayed me in that other used car thread after reading all the replies). Thanks so much, we did see a Don Mealey on 50 in Clermont if anyone has comments on it, that we plan to check on Monday.

    The only place we've bought a reliable used car from was CarMax by the Orlando airport so I can't comment on any other places.

    Since I see you're in Clermont, any places you would recommend against in the area? We were considering just running down highway 50 towards Ocooe and seeing what was out there.

    Haven't heard anything bad about any of the car dealers in the Clermont area. We looked online and emailed back and forth with a salesperson from Ford of Clermont about a Mustang and they were very nice. Good luck!!

    Sorry, DH just told me it was Jarrett Ford in Davenport that we were talking to!

    Yeah, so far all communications have been pleasant with the used dealers in the area - just afraid of getting "that" car since we aren't too familiar with cars and our mechanic is in Davenport (15 miles).

    Ahh, I think I checked that one out. We've been in contact with them (since they're in my city, it'd be too perfect LOL) but no dice on a car in our price yet, at least with the brands we're looking at.

    Look up your area on Auto Traders. We have used it up here with great success.

    We tried Auto Traders, Cars.com, Craigslist, and googled the local places that I could think of. Probably a few others, too. So far, not much luck though.
