Before you start shopping for a used car, do some homework. It may save you serious money. Consider your driving habits, what the car will be used for, and your budget. Research models, options, costs, repair records, safety tests, and mileage — online and through libraries and book stores.
Used vehicles are almost always a lot less expensive than buying new ones, but they can also involve some uncertainty. Spending a little time on research may save you money and future problems.
