Find Used Cars in Salt Lake City, Utah

Salt Lake City is the capital and the most populous city of Utah. The name of the city is often shortened to Salt Lake or S.L.C. The city was founded in 1847 by a group of Mormon pioneers. Mining booms and the construction of the first transcontinental railroad initially brought economic growth, and the city was nicknamed the Crossroads of the West. Salt Lake City has since developed a strong outdoor recreation tourist industry based primarily on skiing. Salt Lake City was host to the 2002 Winter Olympics and is the industrial banking center of the United States. The total area is 110.4 square miles and has an average elevation of 4,327 feet. The city is located in the northeast corner of the Salt Lake Valley surrounded by the Great Salt Lake to the northwest and the steep Wasatch and Oquirh mountain ranges on the eastern and western borders. The city is laid out on a grid plan; most major streets run very nearly north-south and east-west. There is about a fourteen to fifteen minute of arc variation of the grid from true north.

The Salt Lake City metropolitan area has a total estimated population of 1,099,973. The west side of the city has historically been a working-class neighborhood, but recently the more affordable nature of the area has enticed many professionals to the neighborhood. The eastern portion of the city has higher property values than its western counterpart. The climate of Salt Lake City is characterized as a semi-arid steppe climate, with four distinct seasons. The modern economy of Salt Lake City is service-oriented. In the past, nearby steel, mining and railroad operations provided a strong source of income. Today the city's major industries are government, trade, transportation, utilities, and professional and business services.

For every accident with used cars there are many near misses that statistics don’t reflect. Different vehicles have different avoidance capability. The two most important factors are braking and emergency handling. Make sure your used car is sufficient in this area.

A little known safety hazard is from power windows. Children, in particular, can get caught while leaning out the window. Some vehicles have rocker- or toggle-type power-window switches that will raise the window when they are pressed down or forward, and this is a risky design. It is best to get a used car that has a lever switch, which raises the window only when it’s pulled upward.
