Before you begin to shop for a new car, you will need to do some research. Taking the time to investigate vehicles now could end up saving you significant money in the future. There are books and magazines that compare the costs of cars, different models and options, as well as information about safety and repairs. When doing your research, consider your needs, budget, and driving habits to find the car that best suits you. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has several tips for buying a used motor vehicle that many consumers would be wise to follow.
Used cars can be purchased at various places: rental car companies, used car stores, leasing companies, or franchise or independent dealers. Used cars can also be bought online at popular sites such as Craigslist. It is also recommended that you purchase a used car from a dealer that doesn’t have any complaints filed with your state’s Attorney General or the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You should also ask your family, friends, and co-workers for any recommendations.
