If you are considering the purchase of your next used or second hand car, you might at this point be very nervous. Its not a purchase you make regularly like going to the supermarket for your monthly shop or buying that next outfit for hitting the town. Its something you might only do every three or four years sometimes longer.
Some popular makes are:
Audi, Alfa Romeo, Bmw, Citroen, Ford, Fiat, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus,Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mg, Mini and Mitsubishi.
Confused? Who should I buy it from? A large garage group, a medium sized independent, a small independent, or a back street garage? The Answer? Whichever of these have the vehicle that you want! (With certain reservations which we will explore later.)
A common mistake is to go out in the car and visit all local sellers in the hope you see something you like, if you do this you will be at your most vulnerable and may well find that you buy something on impulse and may not in the long term be the best for you.
With the world wide web at your fingertips it's a great place to start. By using it and visiting some of the better used car classified sites you will be able to narrow down your choices before even leaving your home.
Ideally you should list your requirements in order of importance for example:
1. Insurance Cost 2. Fuel type 3. Economy 4. Vehicle size 5. 3/5/4 door etc 6. Price 7. Colour 8. Specification
Don't get to carried away other wise the whole thing will not be the enjoyable experience it should be. Okay get surfing and find that combination of your dreams.
More of the most popular makes of vehicles to search are:
Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Rover, Seat, Subaru, Skoda, Suzuki, Toyota, Vauxhall and Volkswagen.
Happy hunting and watch out for the next instalment. "The negotiation."
