Purchasing a Used Car Wisely

Salvage Ferrari — front damage

Used cars have many advantages, apart from lower cost. First, if you choose to buy a pre-owned vehicle, you will get a car that has built certain character during the years spent on the roads. Second, you may be able to purchase a better or newer model than you could otherwise.

As a car shopper, the last thing you want is for your newly purchased car to turn out to be not exactly what you expected. Unfortunately, any car buyer is at risk from either lack of experience or dishonesty of the seller. Here are three questions you have to answer to avoid purchasing a lemon and make a worthy deal.

Which Car Do I Really Need?

Why do I need a car? This is the first question to think about before starting any research. Think about your wants and needs and figure out what you expect from the vehicle. Do you need it for everyday use or for business or family trips only? Keep in mind that if you are looking for your first car, it is better to avoid powerful cars that can be rather difficult to handle. Set your priorities and then start your research, and don’t forget about safety features and fuel efficiency.

Where Will I Buy From?

There are lots of places to look for secondhand cars. You can use any one of many websites to research different models and choose the one that meets your needs. You may also decide to go straight to the dealer. However, be careful, because if you haven’t decided which car you really want, a skilled sales person can make you buy the vehicle they need to sell, not the one you need. Keep your head cool and don’t buy on emotion!

And the last, but perhaps most important question, is which checks you need to perform. Unfortunately, not all sellers are fair, and some may hide issues your car may have. For that reason, you need to make your own little investigation and ensure that the car is in proper condition. The fastest way to check a car is to get a full vehicle history using VinInspect or EpicVin websites. With this service, you will easily see if the car was flooded, stolen, rebuilt or somehow damaged. You can also learn if an odometer rollback took place, or if the car was used as a taxi or police car.
