Checklist for Buying a Used Car

When buying a used car, the name of the game is "check." Once you've decided on the make and model you want, check the seller's asking price against the going rate; check the cost of financing and insurance; check on the vehicle's history; check the engine, body and undercarriage when you take the vehicle for a test drive. To assist you in your checking, we've provided a checklist composed of these and many other helpful pieces of advice. Follow the link below and check off each of our tips before cutting a check.
