Where to Start When Buying Used

With the used car market on the rise, many people are taking to the internet as the start of their research, and sometimes that is the only place you need to go.

Buying used cars

You can have everything picked out for your new used car before even stepping foot into the dealership.

So where do you start? What sites should you use? How do you know a reasonable price for a vehicle? While there are many sites you can use, some are more efficient than others. The first step, as in any process, is to figure out what you would like. The car industry is huge and there are too many choices, so you need to know what you would like before you start your search. After you’ve determined a car or two you’re interested in, Cars.com, Autotrader.com or a local used car lot is a great place to start.

After you’ve found the car near you, you want to make sure the vehicle isn’t being overpriced. You can check Kelley Blue Book (KBB.com) to compare makes, models, and suggested prices for the vehicles you’re looking at. You can also check average prices on Edmunds.com.

Before you agree on any purchase, you need to always check the vehicle out in person. You want to test drive it and make sure it is a trustworthy car, coming from a trustworthy person. Cars can also be found on sites like Craigslist and Ebay Motors from private sellers. We suggest buying from a lot, however, because this will usually offer a warranty and will provide you with piece of mind that the car has been properly taken care of.
