You might think that’s still a bit old. Not all old cars are that bad. Within the last 10 years or so regulations have been put in place to control emissions and get better gas millage. Some car companies like Toyota or Honda have been doing this all along regardless of laws. For example I drive a year 2000 honda civic. Its not the pinnacle of ’green’ technology but think on this I get around 25-30mpg. This car is now 9 years old. Many cars today can just match that, and some can’t even reach that high of millage. It also has always passed California smog check and emission checks. California is notorious for its strict emission control standards. So if it can pass those tests it’s a good, clean running car. And since the car is quite a few years old it’s not going to be all that expensive, especially if its found at an auction where you say how much you’re willing to buy it for.
Reasonable mileage ==> Listed prices for cars suggest that reasonable mileage should be around the range of 12,000 miles an year. For a car with much higher mileage or in a poorer condition, the sale price should be lower. Never sign an ’As Is’ agreement ==> Read all documentation before you sign. Agree a warranty for at least 30 days, you never know what to expect with a second hand car. By signing an ’As Is’ agreement, once you drive the vehicle off the lot, anything that goes wrong will be your problem. Do not share ==> Never share this information with dealer number with your dealer. Not recommended. Shop Around ==> Don’t settle for the first car that you see. There are a lot of second hand cars being sold, you can certainly find one that suits your budget and style. With these ideas in mind, you can certainly make an informed decision.
No matter whether you have purchased a used car or are bringing home a brand new car. These tips on buying a car will safeguard you from all the fallacies and fraud. * Start with checking the exteriors of the car. It should have a constant paint finish. There should be no scratches or abrupt paint. * Check whether the gaps between the panels are of the same breadth or not. If it is not, then it indicates that the car has met with an accident lately. * Open and close all the doors of the car and press the car down from all the four corners. If the car is in sound condition, it should return to its normal height smoothly. * Dont forget to check cars VIN or Vehicle Identification Number. * Check the engine and oil used. Color of the oil should be golden and it should be free from dirt and debris. * Also check engine coolant’s fluid levels. * Cross check the mileage and car’s odometer. You can make use of the car’s document for accuracy. * Check AC, dashboard, wipers, Head lights, indicators. Electric windows, seat adjuster, gears, breaks and every other thing present inside the car must be checked properly. * Checking car’s logbook, driving history, MOT certificate, servicing stamps for assurance.
What do you need to remember when buying a car? Remember, it’s an investment, so make sure it is the right one. Most people tend to go for the look, the glitz, the engine and other such features. It is recommended to make an informed decision by taking all following aspects into account: Car History ==> Buying a used car can be difficult, and somewhat of a gamble. You can put the odds in your favor by knowing all you can know about the car’s history. This includes number of previous owners, if the car was involved in any accidents, any previous mechanical failures and its maintenance history. Ensure that car Odometer has not been tampered with ==> Simply look at the dashboards to see for marks, or if it is loose. This generally is a sign of tampering. Also look for service stickers under the hood or inside of the car. They will contain latest readings, and you can match them against the current read.
Beside are the 10 tips to buying a car: 1) There is a ”right time” to buy a car whether you know it or not. This is generally when the new models come in. New model cars usually come in between August and November, so by shopping for a car during these months you will be able to have access to the newest model cars available. 2) Do not feel pressured to buy a car. Salesmen always try to make you make a decision to buy now, and will try to persuade you to make an instant decision. 3) Ask salesmen about unadvertised sales that may be going on. 4) The internet is a great place to look for cars! You can sometimes find good deals without wasting your gas or having to deal with any pushy salesmen. 5) Be ready to negotiate the right price for you. Almost everywhere you go a car price is negotiable, so be your own agent and negotiate a price you can afford. 6) Don’t go to car dealerships on the weekend. This is when most people go to the dealership to buy a car, so you won’t get as good of a deal if you do this. Instead go during the middle of the week when salesmen are more eager to make a deal. 7) Go to car dealers toward the end of the month when dealers are trying to meet sales goals. 8) Bring someone with you that is knowledgeable about cars if you are inexperienced. 9) Take your time when making your purchase. Remember this is a major purchase, and you should not be talked into buying something that you do not want. 10) Have Fun! I hope these 10 tips to buying a car will help you to make a better informed purchase.
2). Evaluate the condition of your ride- The price your car will fetch does not only depend on what model it is but it also depends on what state your car is into. If your car is running pretty well with only minimal defects or errors, you can expect to get a good profit for it. If your car is in a horrible state or is disabled, you’ll be lucky to sell it for something that even approaches market value. But if you’re selling a car in perfect condition, you can potentially make a killing on the marketplace. 3). Get your car in good shape- If you are capable of doing it and if you have the time and money to get it done, it’s best to get your car in great or at least respectable shape. Sure, it may cause you to shell out some cash as an investment, but the returns of having a presentable ride during the sale can be potentially huge. Prep your car properly and you’ll never regret it.
Now pretend that you keep your 2003 Toyota Camry or that you are the buyer this year that bought it for $6,000. You have no car payments, so if you get laid off from your job or have other temporary financial setbacks, there is no stress from the possibility of the car being taken by the repo man. Granted it’s a used car so we might need a little extra for repairs, let’s say $100 a month. You still need to get the oil changed and regular maintenance done on the car like the new car, but you don’t need to sweat over a few coffee spills on the upholstery or scratches and dings on the paint since you know the car will be worth little when you are ready to get rid of it anyway. Where will you be in six years if you sock away the extra $220 dollars a month in a rather lousy investment CD with a rate of one percent? You will have $16,000 in savings. That is surely plenty of money to buy another nicer and newer car.
