If you are
thinking about purchasing a used car, you know how
befuddling it can be. There is a large number of things to consider
that can be overwhelming. There are many things to look for when
purchasing a used car but one important factor is to give
the car a physical check before making your final
decision. They are some things you need to bear in mind
when buying such cars:
Do research before you buy
Research the car you have selected (sometimes to a fault) to
understand what model you want, known weak points, typical repair
and cost intervals and price points. Google is your
friend for finding tons of information concerning your vehicle and
Don't buy when you are "blind"
Don't buy "blindly" or by quickly looking at the car. Buying
blindly leads you to decide that you're going to buy the vehicle
before you've looked at it, and that makes you do things like
inspect the vehicle in the dark or in the rain, where you're not
going to see certain things. Those conditions can seriously blur
your decision because you can't possibly check all the right stuff
before you buy the desired car.

If buying person to person instead of through a
dealership, check enthusiast forums like Craigslist. Initially when
dealing with an individual you are more likely to be able to get a
better deal depending on the sellers situation. With good
negotiating skills and some friendly conversation the buying
process is more likely to come out better than if dealing with a
used car salesman. Another factor to consider is that forum users
are more apt to give deals to other users. You can get a lot of
feedback from guys posting about the car that might know more than
you, or if it is long distance forum users are often open to
checking out a car for you and you'll be getting an honest opinion
back. In this environment your car info is just in few clicks away.
Please do not hesitate to try different methods like searching
through the forums and search engines.
