What You Should Consider Before Buying a Used Car

How to purchase the right second-hand vehicle.

  Are you thinking of buying a used car? This can be a great option for budget-savvy drivers who aren't looking to purchase a new vehicle that may require a lease or a loan. A used vehicle can last you many years of hassle-free driving - if you choose the right one. Before you take the leap, here are a few things to consider first.   Your budget Before you set out to find the car of your dreams, define a clear budget and stick to it. This will help you to narrow down your search and save time by only looking at viable options.   Vehicle history Even if you scan the interior and exterior of the vehicle and everything looks spotless, don't be so sure. It may look right, but the vehicle may have had a rough past or been involved in some serious collisions. Always conduct a vehicle history search on the car before buying as this can uncover prior damage, odometer readings, and title information.   Driving It may sound obvious, but it's important to get behind the wheel of a car before you purchase it. Take it for a drive to test out its steering, speed, brakes, and listen for any noises coming from the engine.   Insurance Did you know that you need proof of insurance before you buy a used car? This is required before you close the deal and drive off the lot, so make sure you know who you're going with and what sort of coverage you want.   Whether your car is new or used, make sure to find the right protection.
