The Back Wall

Car dealerships get cars in every condition as trade-ins. Sometimes as in the case of the Subaru Dealership I work at in Fresno, we buy lease returns from Subaru only auctions. Regardless of how we get them, they all get parked on The Back Wall. From there, they go through our shop for mechanical checks, smog and safety.  If they pass those inspections, they will go to the detail shop and eventually make it to the front line on Blackstone Avenue with the bright price stickers on the windshield and catchy phrases like “affordable”, “Great Value”, “Family Car” or “Certified”. So far I have not seen this dealership us the “Cream Puff” sticker.

What will you get by checking The Back Wall?

  • See cars traded in that day or very recently
  • See cars before they get advertised
  • See cars in their original condition (the way they were lived in before meeting the detailers)

What should you know about cars on The Back Wall?

  • They may never make it up to the front of the store – we may not be able to sell them
  • They may have issues that – if you can deal with them – will help you get an otherwise nice used car at a very low price
  • By California Law, you can’t drive one of these cars until they’ve passed inspections.

So, with my help, maybe you’ll find the next car for your family or the first car for one of you teenagers, here on the back wall and you and I will follow it together from the time it comes in until it is cleaned up, reconditioned and in your driveway.

2003 Honda CR-V LX for Sale in Fresno $5,995 on The Back Wall

2003 Honda CR-V LX

These cars are exactly what gets traded in on new Subarus. It was traded in this weekend.  Should be ready to drive  any day now.  This Silver CRV was purchased in September of 2003 and four years later it was traded in to a Honda dealer in Fresno. That owner took very good care of it with regular service and a dash cover, and eventually traded it in on a Subaru here at the Subaru/Mitsubishi dealership where I work in Fresno. It’s clean, well cared-for and has only 112,000 miles. That’s an average of 8,600 miles per year over two owners.   Kelley Blue Book usually allows 15,000 miles per year!

The Honda CRV is a car that will last a very long time if well cared-for. On the Back Wall, you see the trade-ins first and before they get cleaned up and certified by our mechanic shop. There is a chance that this clean 2003 CRV will not make it through the shop and we’ll have to send it to the wholesale auto auction. If it does make it through our shop’s smog and safety inspection and it deemed road worthy, drivable and sellable… it can be yours for just $5,995. Remember, these older cars are harder to finance because the banks don’t make any money on these small loans, but I will do everything I can to make this car work for you.
Thanks for checking the latest deal – an being one of the first to see it – on

VERY LOW MILEAGE 2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback from the Back Wall

Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium 5-Door

It’s another EdsCarpage low mileage special. If this car is still here in 30 days I am going to sell it to my niece! Check out this 2013 Subaru Impreza 5-Door 2.0i Premium. I helped my customer lease this car on Sep 15, 2013. He has put 3,100 miles per year on it. He used it instead of renting a car when he came to Fresno once a month:

It was traded in today, July 31, 2016 with only 9, 300 miles. The Retail Kelley Blue Book on this car is $18,655… AMAZING! A new 2016 one just like this is $23,070. My dealership in Fresno California will probably sell this car for $17.995. We price our cars to be the lowest of their kind in a 200 mile radius. You can buy it now through me, just click “Ask Ed” or call me at any of the numbers on this webpage. I’m thinking $16,500, how about you? Of course, it’s not my car to sell, and I have to take you offer to the sales desk, but the whole idea behind checking out these back wall posts is to learn about these opportunities first.
If you need a well-engineered, perfect condition, pre-loved car with the lowest possible miles, this is it. This 2013 Impreza is about a “like new” as a car can get. Driven once a month or so and probably a California road trip or two in three years.
The 2013 Subaru Impreza Premium came with all power (windows, doors, locks), air conditioning, Bluetooth, aux plug & USB, 2 12-vold chargers, cruise control, paddle shifters, alloy wheels and up to 36 miles per gallon as estimate by the EPA.
You’ll need to act fast… just click “Ask Ed” on the top right side of this page and I’ll have this car ready for you, parked in the shade, when you get here.
