Buying Used Cars: The Do’s and Don’ts

ABC News wrote a nice article on the do’s and don’ts of buying a used car. While the advice is sound, it does appear the website favors major brands over smaller dealerships. Here are the biggest reasons you should be buying a used vehicle: Save money on the purchase price – if you can live without the new-car smell. Lower insurance rates, because one of the key factors in the cost is the vehicle’s value. You can drive a “better” car than you might be able to afford otherwise.

As a very broad, general rule, and depending upon where you live, tax, license, assorted fees and other costs will add roughly 10 percent to the purchase price given by the used car dealer when you purchase. This makes the price of a $30,000 car actually about $33,000 and, if you’re financing the deal, you will be paying interest on that additional amount.
