SALT LAKE CITY — Aside from being home to palm trees and beaches, Miami is also the cheapest place to buy a used car, according to Car Gurus.

Cars are 6.6 percent less expensive on average in Miami than they are nationwide.

“Prices can vary substantially from city to city, and depending on where you live, it may pay to look beyond your ZIP code to find greater savings,” said Langley Steinert, founder and CEO of CarGurus, in a release. “At a minimum, understanding how an individual car listing compares to similar listings in the same market will help any car shopper make more informed, confident purchase decisions.”

Other affordable cities include Cleveland, Ohio; Rochester, N.Y., Detroit, Mich.; Stamford, Conn.; Akron, Ohio; Buffalo, N.Y.; Toledo, Ohio; New York City, N.Y.; and Minneapolis, Minn.

Among the cities most expensive, Jackson, Mo., was the priciest place to buy a car. In Jackson it is 9 percent more expensive to buy a car than the national average.

Along with Jackson, Seattle, Wash.; Montgomery, Wash.; Little Rock, Ark.; and Knoxville, Tenn., are the five most expensive cities to make a car purchase.
