I want to buy a used car; how do I know it will be roadworthy?

It is usually cheaper to purchase a secondhand car, since the value of a new vehicle depreciates quickly – as soon as you drive it off the lot, in fact. You should always personally check if a used vehicle is roadworthy before you purchase. For starters, you should never buy a used car without taking it for a test drive at least once. You may not notice every single problem, but the worst issues can become evident almost immediately.

Be sure to request all documentation related to the vehicle, including a car report that details how many owners the vehicle has had, any and all accidents the vehicle has been involved in, and whatever repair work the used dealership or garage has completed. Such information should be readily available to a used car buyer. Take some time to research the exact vehicle you are buying.

How do the finance options work?

When it comes to buying a used vehicle, you have two financing options available: direct lending and dealership financing. Direct lending requires receiving a monetary loan directly from a bank, finance institution, or credit union. In order to receive the loan, you must agree to repay the entire amount, plus interest and finance charges, over a period of time. Keep in mind that you enter into a contract to repay the loan amount.

As for dealership financing, you and the car dealer enter into an agreement. Again, you will repay the amount of the vehicle over a specified period of time. The amount financed also includes a finance charge, so be sure to have the contract in print and read through everything. When it comes to financing, it is recommended to shop around before making a firm decision. Consider offers from several sources before purchasing the vehicle.
