5 Tips for Buying a Used Car

1.Decide where you want to buy - Buying from dealers is usually expensive than buying from individuals. But buying from dealer provides you additional peace of mind since those car come with some kind of warranty. You have to make a decision on your own. I once bought from a car mechanic and regretted it and the next car I bought from an individual and had a good experience. If you follow rest of the steps then buying from an individual should not be an issue. You can also check for cars available in your area.

2.Do check the car's history using services like AutoCheck or CarFax. You can Get a FREE VIN Check from AutoCheck. here.

3.Test drive the car to make sure you are comfortable driving the particular car. If this is your first time driving, ask a friend who has gone through this process to help you with test drive.

4.Do take it to a mechanic before you buy and let them check a car, you can check the list of mechanics here.

5.Negotiate the price - check a service like Kelly Blue Book etc. to find what the right price for a particular make/model is. These services will help you figure out the maximum price you should pay. Make an offer lower than those prices and then move upwards.
