  1. I’ve been looking to buy a used car for my son and it has been a hassle. I think these tips are great and I one hundred percent agree with the suggestion to look at the recalls. We were so close to finding a good car for him when we learned that the model we were about to buy had been recalled several times for different reasons, so we’re still looking. I might have him start looking at different online shops while I continue to look around town.

  2. One of the main benefits of buying a used car as opposed to a new car is the cost. Used cars will always be cheaper than buying a brand new car. However, there is a catch. Being used, the car or truck might have some mechanical problems that could be costly. Like the infographic says, do a bit of research to save yourself some trouble.

  3. I really appreciate these tips on how to have the best experience while shopping for and buying a used car. It is interesting that this points out that it is usually a safer bet to buy a used car from a dealer. It must be because of the inspections they do to make sure everything is working how it is supposed to. Thanks for the information!

  4. In April, I will be buying my first car. I can’t afford an expensive car and so I will have to buy used. I don’t mind that, but right now I am trying to learn all I can about buying one. There is a lot to consider. For example, I will have to also get auto insurance and I am very inexperienced in that as well. However, I notice that the inforgraphic didn’t mention it at all. Is buying auto insurance for a used car any different than it is for a brand new car? http://www.insuranceholtandassociates.com/auto.html

  5. I’ve only bought used vehicles in my lifetime. It’s a great way to save money. However, you make a great point about doing your research to ensure that there aren’t any recalls on a vehicle. Additionally, your tip about reading reviews about makes and models you are interesting in getting can help you know what to expect out of your vehicle. This way you will know if a car will be able to meet your lifestyle needs.

  6. I appreciate your tip on reading reviews and ratings on different used cars that you are looking into buying. It seems that putting a bit of time into researching a car would be really helpful when it comes to the point where you are going to buy it. My wife and I are looking into getting a used car so well have to research the car we want first. http://www.airportautorvpawn.com

    Thanks buddy πŸ™‚

  8. Thanks for the post. I think this is great information. I found it interesting that dealers make so much off of cars. It looks like there is definitely room to negotiate. I think dealers expect to negotiate as well so make it a point to do that.

  9. The tips are precise. However, I would like to suggest that after all these checklists mentioned in infographics the last but not the least that is car valuation should be done and you should do this to know the details of, the car in depth.

  10. It is incredible that 20% of reviews online can be fake on popular websites. If that’s the case, then it sounds like it might be a good idea to find someone who has the car you want, and then ask them about their experience. Reviews online can be good for helping you get a general feel for the public’s opinion about it, but I wouldn’t just rely on that.

  11. Your blog is as amazing as always … I am a regular visitor of your blog due to its innovative and interesting content, they are helping me in my career a lot. Thanks for sharing this amazing information.

  12. That’s crazy that in 2014 62 million vehicles were recalled! I should do some research into what models were recalled. That would be dangerous if I bought a faulty car. I’m a little stressed out about having to buy a new car soon.

  13. Next month, I am going to be buying my first car and it’s going to be a used one. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to want to haggle, like this infographic suggests me doing. However, I would never have thought that a dealership can gain a lot of money when a used car is bought. Yet, what tactics can I use to negotiate a lower price?

  14. These are some great tips, and I appreciate your advice to do your research before buying a used car. I’m going to be purchasing my first vehicle in a couple of months so I have a means of transportation while I’m at college. I’ll definitely make sure to do a lot of research to figure out what kind of car would be the best fit for my needs. Thanks for the great post!

  15. Thank you for this great infographic about buying a used car. I really like that you say to feel free to negotiate. I know that there are a few cars out there that might be a little too pricey.

  16. I really like the last tip to buy online! My husband and I have been thinking about buying a used truck for a while now to use on our ranch. We have looked at a lot of different vehicles online and it has really helped to see a lot of different options. We will have to keep these tips in mind while we continue our search. Thanks for sharing!

  17. I am going to be starting classes soon and will need a good commuter car to make it to and from campus. I plan on buying a used car and I liked your recommendation of checking online for an estimate and using that as leverage to negotiate a fair price with the dealership. Once I decide on the type of car I want, I will surely check online to find a fair price before heading to the dealership.

  18. I agree that it’s important to consider how many times a car model has been recalled before buying it. That could help you prepare for future problems might come with buying a used car. I also think buying cars online is a good option to find what you’re looking for beyond your area. But it’s important to be careful when choosing a deal.

  19. I like how you talked about reading reviews and ratings for used car dealerships. I’ve been looking at getting a newer car as a little bit of an upgrade, and I would love to check out used car dealerships that could have something to fit my needs. I’m going to have to look into a few of the local used car dealerships and their ratings and reviews online to see what happens!
