Learn Steps To Buying A Car

There are a number of ways to find and buy a used car:
  • Classified ads
  • Online sites, (Edmunds.com),(Auto-Trader)
  • Used car dealers
  • New car dealers (many offer used cars as well)
  • Relatives or a private party
When shopping for a used car be sure to have it checked out by a mechanic. You can get a vehicle history report by using carfax.com.

Their report can tell you if:
  • The vehicle was salvaged or even stolen
  • Previous owners
  • Inspection failures
  • Dishonest odometer readings
  • Never sign a document that says you are buying the vehicle "As is" You want the car to have some sort of warranty.
  • Be pre-approved for a loan with your own financing

When buying a new car or pre-owned car you want to be an informed buyer by researching and learning as much as you can about the vehicle you are purchasing. This can make your car-buying experience seamless and enjoyable.
