Car sales are steadily increasing, and so is demand for used cars. However, just like buying any big ticket item, there are dos and don'ts when looking to purchase a used car. Whether you're a first-timer or a frequent used car buyer, here are a few tips you'll want to remember next time you're on the lot.
First and foremost, learn what rights you have when buying a used car, which your local consumer protection office can provide you. Once that's done, start looking at a few vehicles, but don't fall in love yet.
For any vehicle you're interested in, you'll want to research the vehicle's history. Ask about past owners, use, and maintenance. Inquire if the car has ever been damaged. Get its VIN number, which can provide lots of information. In Chicago, Infiniti QX56 owners couldn't have a higher opinion of used Infiniti vehicles. These cars are built to last, and even used models outperform the competition.
Ask about the dealer's return policy. Also, check the vehicle's warranty. If you're lucky and it's still in effect, contact the manufacturer to make sure you can use the coverage as well. Lastly, have the car inspected by a trusted mechanic. Once everything checks out, make sure to read all documents carefully before signing.
