At the time of purchase the car may seem just fine and even look and sound great, but later you start finding issues with it. Maybe it is scratches hidden by buffing or a strange sound from the motor. Maybe the steering seems to get looser and looser or an indicator light starts going off now and then. These things usually are not noticed when first buying a car because some of them are covered up by the dealership or owner selling it; and others are intermittent problems that will not be observed unless you are driving the car on a daily basis. All these possible issues though should be of concern if you want to make sure to get the best deal when getting that car.

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.

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.

You will need to ensure the car is thoroughly clean, both inside and out, and this can take hours; you may need to apply a t-cut solution to any scratches or simply to bring out the cars original colour, if it is a little faded. This all takes time, time, which in the modern world, very few people have. However, and fortunately for any person who is thinking ’I want to sell my car now!’, quick sales are possible – you just need to know where to get the best deals within the shortest space of time. Companies that offer cash for cars are normally very good. They have several reasons for buying your car and this means that your car is an attractive buy for them, and so they will offer a decent sum of money. The reasons that such a business will be able to offer good money in a short space of time are various. However, in short, if the car is old, and is not resalable they can remove serviceable and salvageable parts, which they will then be able to sell on at a profit. Private buyers and car dealerships do not offer such services because it is not their line of business and they do not have the appropriate contacts. Alternatively, if the car is resalable they often export the cars to countries where they can demand a higher price than they could if selling in the UK. For these reasons, they offer very competitive prices for used cars of all types and conditions.

Lets look at it this way, would you rather buy a car from someone who decided to upgrade to get more room for their kids or someone who says they wanted something better? Many sellers tend to answer this question quickly and on impulse so you should get an honest answer. Question: Can I come look at the car and take it for a test drive? If you are asking all of these questions over the phone or via email, you will want to ask this important question. It is always recommended that you take a vehicle for a test drive before deciding to buy. Just because a car looks good, it doesn’t necessarily mean it runs good or will be comfortable for you to drive. Run in the other direction if a seller keeps making excuses. The car might not run or they might not even have a car to sell (common with online scammers).

While usually good such repairs can raise safety concerns in the future as well as affect the car’s overall life span! Rust – Rust can be a problem for any car. Cars that were located in humid areas or near the ocean should be of considerable concern for the fact that rust could lead to needed repairs of the exhaust system and other important frame elements. Test drive: Car handling – Many people when driving a car will only catch the obvious issues. There are many small but very important things that can happen during a test drive though that will indicate if the car is in good condition and running as smoothly as it should. Sounds – One of the best ways to tell if things are right is by the sounds the car will make during different performance tests. Unless you are an expert you will probably not pick up on most of these as they can easily be masked by the overall sound of the motor or road noise. To get safe you need to have motor vehicle inspection.

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.

Tips and Tricks for Buying Used Cars ==> Avoid showing your interest or praising particular model ahead, I would better suggest you to talk with the dealer concerning minor defects you have noticed. Always let the dealer know that you may change your mind any time. Try to ask for lower price based on the drawbacks found. And the main rule: if you have not caught the sight of some car from the first glance, I would suggest to pass by and not to buy car under pressure. What to Check in Used Cars ==> Check the engine, the body condition as well as the hanger condition. The easiest way to find the rust is checking the boot floor. If, on some reasons you were not allowed to check the body floor, take care and look over your shoulder. Please note, sometimes polishes hide rust. Try to avoid buying cars damaged in accident. The payoff here is that your car can be infirm thus requiring new wheels more often. To get rid of the situation to buy that car, check the car body for gapping spacers on the doors, windows and other irregularities. Check it by sampling the diagonals (should be equal). If you find the car with original (factory) painting, that would be perfect, because in this case you see all the defects of the body.
