New or Used Car?
The idea behind buying a used car is to save some money. However buying a used car does not necessarily save you any money. You get what you pay for – a used vehicle, 4-5 years old with 60,000 miles has definitely less motor capacity and life than a new vehicle, so if you wanted to drive it for another 5 years, you will probably have to pay more for repairs than if you bought the new vehicle. You can't save money if you buy a used car, you can save money if you make a good deal. The only way to do that is to be very well informed and to know exactly what you are doing!
Buying a used car is a risky job - there is no guarantee that the car is accident-free, has real mileage, and was properly maintained. There may be some hidden problems with transmission or the engine. There are however a lot of things you can do to minimize the risks associated with buying a used car. There are certain things you should do and there are things you shouldn't do and if you read carefully the rest of the sections of this website you will be able to enjoy your new purchase even though it is a used car. Besides a buyer of a new car is not guaranteed perfection as well – many new cars come with some minor factory issues and some problems that are less known because not too many people had the chance to actually drive it.
