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.
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.
The days of spending hour after hour for days walking through car lots are all but gone. The modern car purchaser has many tools at his disposal. The chief tool is the internet. People can now watch videos to see reviews of cars from real owners and in some cases, they can see videos of the cars they are considering purchasing. The most popular use of the internet, however, is looking for cars for sale online. There are millions of searches monthly for cars for sale and specifically for no reserve cars. A no reserve auction means that the lowest current bid for the item wins. There is no reserve price that a bidder must bid above. People are looking for car auctions with no reserve pricing for two reasons. First, they are trying to get the best deal possible. If nobody else enters a bid, and the auction was listed for a very low initial bid, they can get great deals for potentially thousands below the value of a car. The other reason people look at no reserve car auctions is to establish a comparison price with other cars. They know that they shouldn’t just assume that a car has a great price because it is in a no reserve auction, but they can compare it to other cars for the best deal possible. It would be easy to assume that only private sellers are selling their cars online, but dealers are selling new and used cars online. Some of these dealers go the extra mile for the internet sale. For the modern car buyer, looking for best pricing on autos or looking for antique, classic, or exotic cars that are difficult to find locally, online auctions are a powerful tool.
4). Advertise- To get your car sold, you must get the attention of potential buyers. And the main way to do it is to advertise. A simple ”for sale” tag on your car is sure to get the attention of interested onlookers. You can also post your car at classified ads, both in print and online forms. When posting an ad, make sure to add as many photos and details as possible. You can also try some creative means to get buyers’ attention towards your car such as exhibition videos. 5). Seal the deal- This is the part that some sellers fail to execute. When presenting a car to a potential buyer, make sure to put your best foot forward. Also, be open for negotiations, but steer clear from those trying to lowball you. Establishing rapport and making the buyer want the car more will also help your chances. Once the buyer bites, seal the deal, and both of you will walk away happy.

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.
Accidents – Has the car been involved in any accidents? You can check this by contacting the DVLA as they have records of every car in their database. Reason for Sale – Are you buying from a private seller or a used car dealer? If it is a private sale, why is the owner selling? Ask them to be honest and admit any problems the car may have (e.g. oil leaks). Ask the seller if they have been happy with the car. Extras – What extras does the car have? (Air conditioning, electric windows, CD player etc) Check that they all work. Fuel Efficiency – Ask how many Miles per Gallon the car does. If you plan to drive the car over long distances you will want a car that is fuel efficient. Test Drive – Always take the car out for a test run to see how it handles. A test drive is a good way to see if the car has any problems.
