Used Cars - Things To Consider

Aug 17, 2007
More and more people are buying used cars in particular Japanese cars this is due to the fact that they are usually maintained in mint condition along with Japan being one of the leaders in car manufacturing.

Japanese used cars are also popular because they are not only cheap but have a sleek comfortable feel.
You do not always need to have loads of money to purchase a used car, you can always pick up repossessed cars that are often sold at auction and are priced considerably lower than they are worth.

Another option available at car auctions is police used cars, please bear in mind that when entering into used car auctions there are certain rules and laws, always make sure you know and understand the terms and conditions before you enter or place a bid.

Make sure you have an idea in mind before attending auctions for used cars, know your budget, have a type of car in mind, try and remember what it will be utilized for.

It is always wise to take a friend with you when going to an auction, preferably someone who knows a bit about used cars.

Details of car auctions can be found on the internet, in local newspapers and magazines. If you have the money it is worth travelling to find the best deals.

If you decide to buy used cars from a newspaper advertisement or other mean make sure you always view it in the day time, so you can see any obvious bumps and scrapes

Again, taking a friend along would be handy, especially if they know a little about cars, get them to check the engine and overall condition of the car before you agree a sale.

If you are presented with a car that looks clean and immaculate do not be fooled, it is easy to hide bigger problems. Always ask for any background the owner has on the car and ask to see copies of any history such as services or work done.

Try to do as much research as possible on the car you are looking at, look into what these used cars are going for else where, when you speak to the seller be confident and know your stuff, that way if you offer less than the asking price they may just go for it!

Alway be cool, calm and know your stuff. If you come across as not knowing what your buying then you are more likely to be ripped off.
