Regardless of whether you are looking for a new car or a used car, the process starts with research. First, you must identify what car you want, and then decide if you will buy it from a used car dealer or a private party. The one big difference when you buy a used car is you are not limited to looking at only one model year; there is a much larger pool of quality used cars available.
With such a large pool of cars available in the Cicero area, take your time and consider a few tips that will result in your getting the best used car for you at the best price.
Set Your Budget:
Nobody knows your budget better than you do. If you are going to finance the purchase, an accepted “rule of thumb” is keeping the monthly payment to about 20 percent of your net income. Used cars often need more attention than a new one, so keep in mind the possibility that you will have more maintenance.
Develop A List Of Used Cars That Suit Your Needs:
Look at more than one manufacturer’s products. You might like to consider a certified pre-owned car; these cars come with a warranty. CPO vehicles are only available from a used car dealer that is franchised by a manufacturer that also sells new cars of the same brand.
Locate The Cars On Your Short List:
A great place to start looking for the best used car dealer is the internet. Not only is the current inventory listed, but the vehicle details such as odometer reading, MPG stats, vehicle history reports, and prices are also shown.
All that is left is to arrive at a price that suits you and the dealer, complete any paperwork, and drive away in your “new,” high quality used car.
