Buying a Used Car

Looking to buy a used car? We have plenty of tips to help you find the right car at the right price.

Use These Steps to Find the Perfect Used Car

  • Decide on your budget. Know what you can afford, and search for something you can pay for.
  • Build a list of vehicle makes and models you're interested in and fit into your budget. Check out our video to help find the right car for you.
  • Do your research. Find web reviews for the models you're interested in, and if you're able, talk to other owners of these specific cars.
  • Find used cars in your area, using several different websites, and narrow down your list of price ranges and cars you're interested in.
  • With your narrowed-down list of cars, check the vehicle history reports. Avoid cars that have been in major accidents or required significant repairs.
  • Time to contact the seller! Have questions ready. Set up a time for a test drive.
  • Schedule a test drive for daylight hours, when it will be easier to see any problems with the car.
  • Go for a test drive. Drive the car like you would on a normal day, doing things like traveling on the freeway.
  • Have the car evaluated by your trusted mechanic for any hidden problems. If you are looking at a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, the inspection isn't needed as it has already been done.
  • Negotiate and close the deal. Make sure the seller has transferred the title and registration to you.
Using these helpful tips, you'll be on the road before you know it!
