Tips How To Buy Used Cars And Save

By Emma Watson

Value-minded consumers know that buying a reliable pre-owned car is oftentimes the best choice but that finding one takes research. Used car dealers will offer used cars at a less expensive cost but more often than not, you’ll find a cheaper car but it will have been less serviced.

Auto Finance

Certified pre-owned cars are often sold with warranty, auto financial backing and roadside assistance options similar to their brand-new counterparts. A improve quality used car may command financing from a bank, but the payments should still be more affordable than those for a new car loan through a dealership.

Auto Insurance

Before you shop around for a pre-owned car, get car insurance quotes to find out just how much the insurance is going to cost you. When reviewing your budget, you should also take into specify other associated costs including fuel, permit, registration, personal property taxes and insurance.

Car Taxes

Don’t forget that apart from the sticker price you may have to pay extra for registration, taxes and there may be other charges to take into consideration. Tax rates vary by state. As soon as the car is registered in your name, the dealer should provide you with the original receipt from the Tax Assessor-Collector’s office. For tax records, take a photo of the car and keep copies of current classified ads or guide value estimates for similar vehicles. As a very wide variety, general rule, and depending upon where you live, tax, license, mixed fees and other costs will add roughly 10 percent to the purchase price.

Car Mileage

The greater the mileage a used car has, the lower its value, but a used car with lower than average miles can command a higher than average price. Some of the better auctions have the mileage written on the windshields so you can promptly walk up a row of cars in the lot and determine if it meets your mileage requirements without having to open each car up and check the odometer.

The total condition of the car needs to be taken into consideration. If the car looks like a clunker, you may want to move onto the next one on your list. Ask about oil changes and fluid changes that have been made as well as any other types of maintenance. This will let you see that you are buying a decent car that has been well taken care of, or a car that has been neglected


After you are satisfied with the answers to the questions you have asked, take the car for a little test drive. You should pay close attention to the way the car is handling and how you feel when you drive the car. If the car is too big and hard to drive, take a look at a different car. You want to be safe on the road at all times.
