Secondhand cars or used cars are not hard to find. So never limit yourself to just one dealership or one owner. The technique is to scout for the make or model that you want and compare the rates, mileage and the over-all condition of the car. Check the buy and sell ads, your local newspaper and you will find used car that sells at a low price.
Some will advise you to get an established car dealer whether online or otherwise. How do you know if a car dealer is established? Well, they should have a large database of second hand cars to choose from. The next step is to decide what kind of car that you like. Get as much information on the car itself. Then get as much information as you can about the car’s history. When you have all of these information, you can compare and contrast all of them and make a short list of the dealers that you want.
The next step is to inspect the car yourself and this includes asking for a test drive. Never buy a car without driving it. The car should feel solid when you drive it. Check all the features such as the wipers, the headlights, the radio, the air conditioning unit, the heater and others.
Make sure that they are all in running condition. If you are satisfied, then it is time to strike a deal with the car dealer. Try to get as much freebies as you can so you will be able to get as much value as you can for it.
