Too often used cars get a bad rap. There are many great used cars out there for sale.
How you end up feeling about your new used car will likely depend on your buying experience.
So to make the best of your car buying experience, consider the following tips when buying a used car.

Ask a lot of questions

You can't ask enough of them when it comes to buying a used car. Regardless of whether or not you are buying from a licensed car dealer or salesperson, or buying privately, you'll want to consider questions like:

• Are you the original owner (if buying privately)?
• Why are you selling the vehicle (if buying privately)?
• Are you the person who drove it the most (if buying privately)?
• How many people have owned the car?
• What is the car's condition? How about the body and upholstery?
• Has the car ever needed repairs that cost more than say $1000?
• Has the vehicle ever been in an accident?
• Have only licensed mechanics serviced the vehicle?
• Are there service records?
• Did the car come from another province? Country?
• Was it ever used as a taxi, police car, emergency vehicle, a lease or rental?
• Does the odometer accurately show the true mileage the car has travelled?

 
Understand how much the car is worth

If you're interested in finding the value of a used car, you have a couple of resources at your disposal: the Canadian Red Book and the Canadian Black Book.

As well, look for other cars of the same year, make and model online to see what others are asking for in price. There are oodles of online classified websites that you can check out to see what the going rate is.
