Buying a New Car: Tips from an Expert
There is nothing more exciting than buying a new car, so long as you have done your due diligence in creating the right budget and payment scheme. As you probably already know, you can find the best deals in the used car market – but you can also find the worst. This is why it is so important to do your research not only on the make, model, and year of a car,but also on each individual vehicle’s history and true value. In order to accomplish this, you should set certain standards as you browse the web to find your perfect vehicle. Here are three to consider:
First off, filter by mileage – not price. A car’s mileage can often be the best indicator of its quality. As a golden rule, previous owners should have put no more than 10-15k miles on the road per year. Cars with high miles bring unexpected maintenance issues, surprises in the Carfax,and unsightly dings and scratches.
Next, know the reputation of your seller. If you are purchasing from a dealer, you may judge their credibility by reading past reviews available on sites like eBay Motors. The quality of the pictures they take is also a great indicator. The clearer, more plentiful, and larger the photos, the less the seller is trying to hide. Some dealers are able to establish such high esteem and quality online presentation that buyers can be confident of a purchase without ever seeing the car in person.
Finally, pre-inspect the vehicle for piece of mind. There is nothing more frustrating than running into engine problems before you get the chance to enjoy your purchase. Even if you are covered by warranty, the risk of the hassle alone is worth the pre-inspection.
These three tips are certainly not the only criteria you should consider when purchasing from the used car market, but they will steer you in the right direction. Remember to think conservatively about your purchase, and realize that if the price is too good to be true, then you can expect problems in the near future.
