Aside from our homes, the next largest purchase that we make is often our vehicles. When it comes to the cost of a vehicle, a used car is always a better value. Seeing as how a new car will start to depreciate the minute it leaves the dealer’s lot, a one to two-year-old car is not only going to be in nearly mint condition, but it will cost you thousands less. When it comes to purchasing a used car from a used car dealer, make sure you get the best deal by following some of these steps.
First and most important, do your research. One of the worst things you can do when it comes to buying a vehicle from a used car dealer is to walk onto a lot without any ideas of what you’re looking for. Decide what features are most important to you and then narrow down the vehicles that have those features. Furthermore, choose a few vehicles and determine what makes, models, and mileage generally cost. Armed with a bit of information, you can better narrow down the search from the sea of vehicles.
Second, don’t let your emotions get in the way! Buying a car can be a fun experience, but it won’t be much fun long term if you’re stuck with a car that you don’t like or paid too much for.
Third, know your financing, and get it beforehand if you can. A lot of dealers will try to get the buyer to focus on a monthly payment instead of the overall cost.
