How to buy a used car and avoid car dealership scams.

A great way to save money when buying a car is to purchase a used vehicle instead of a new one. The moment you drive a new car off a dealer’s lot, it starts to depreciate rapidly. That means it’s worth less than what you paid for it. You can save thousands of dollars by letting someone else absorb the steep depreciation of the first few years of ownership.
