Nothing ruins your mood more than having to stand in the pouring rain after a long day’s work, waiting to hail a cab. You have just come to realize the necessity of having your own private vehicle. While it may be more reassuring to get a brand new SUV, sometimes our budget just doesn’t cut it. So, you are left with the option of buying a second-hand car.
More than a glossy exterior, you’d want to be sure you’re getting a used car that won’t give you a headache when it comes to repairs. If possible, get a trusted mechanic to come with you when choosing a used car.
Taper down the list of used cars you want, and research on the current prices of these in your area. You could start by browsing through classified ads, both in print and online. Prices usually vary from place to place. Private sellers usually sell cars cheaper than dealers too.
Never underestimate the power of negotiation. Try to haggle for the lowest price possible.
