Frequently Asked Questions
What is Value Pricing?
Paul Barker (founder of Goliath Auto Sales, LLC) checks the internet prices of our vehicles everyday. He uses this research to ensure our used automobiles are competitively priced. This means we price our vehicles based on the current market’s supply and demand. This method of pricing ensures you get a fair price. We use this information to ensure our prices are some of the lowest in town and list our prices on our website. Our CarGurus badge lets you know how we compare to similar used vehicles for sale in the local area (you can use it to find out how our price compares to market value). Along with our sales tax savings and low Dealer Doc fee, we think you'll agree our deals are hard to beat!
What other costs do you charge in addition to the Value price?
All prices are plus sales tax (ONLY 6.1% at this location with no CITY sales tax), title, license and $349.50 dealer DOC fee. If you trade in your vehicle, you will only be taxed on the difference between your selling price (Value price) and your trade-in allowance. As an example, if if the selling price is $9,000 and the value of your trade is $5,000, you will only be charged sales tax on the difference ($4,000 in this case.

- What is FWD? FWD stands for Front Wheel Drive. Many vehicles use this type of engine and transmission layout where the power is put only on the front wheels of the vehicle. This allows for better traction and performance in poor weather conditions.
- What is RWD? RWD stands for Rear Wheel Drive where the vehicle is propelled only by the rear wheels. Older vehicles were almost always RWD. Both pickup trucks and American Muscle Cars like the Mustang and Camaro still utilize this layout. The main advantage for trucks is the added traction when carrying a load. Vehicles with high horsepower benefit from RWD which separates the steering of the front wheels from the power of the rear wheels.
- What is AWD? AWD stands for All Wheel Drive. This type of system puts power to both the front and rear wheels. Typically, there is an additional differential system in AWD vehicles that can vary the ratio of power between the front and rear axles as required for better handling and traction. There are full time and part-time AWD systems. As the name suggests, full time systems operate all the time while part time systems apply power to both axles only when needed and engage automatically.
- What is 4WD? 4WD stands for Four Wheel Drive. This type of drivetrain utilizes a transfer case to provide power to both the front and rear axles. The transfer case has both a low and high gear range. The low range allows for better low-speed climbing and pulling power. You usually find 4WD systems on trucks and Jeeps and other vehicles designed with all-terrain abilities
