Follow Our Simple Guide to Find the Best 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 reviews online for the models you're interested in, and if possible, 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 large accidents or required significant fixes.
  • Time to contact the seller! Have questions ready. Schedule a time for a test drive.
  • Set up that test drive for daytime, when noticing any issues with the car will be more simple.
  • Go for a test drive. Drive the car like you would on a normal day, such as driving on the freeway.
  • Have the car inspected by your trusted mechanic for any problems that are hiding. 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 handy steps, you'll be on the road in no time!
