How to Buy a Used Car and Save Money

Always Test Drive It

Used car buyer’s guide that will help you save money when buying a used car, truck or SUV.

Buying a used car instead of a new car has its advantages. First off, someone has already taken the huge initial depreciation loss on the vehicle when it was purchased new. Second, you can buy a used car just a couple of years old, with a lot more bells and whistles, for a lot less money.

There is not a factory invoice associated with a used car so you will have to estimate what a dealer paid for the vehicle.  Other than that, there are only a couple of additional steps you should take to ensure you don’t end up buying an unreliable vehicle or someone else’s problem.
