Simple Tips When Buying a Second-Hand Car

With the current economic situation not showing any kind of real change, more and more people are looking at a second-hand car market when thinking of getting the next vehicle. Because of this second-hand car prices have not fallen as much as people initially thought they would. Therefore, if you are in the market for a second-hand car. I hope the tips in this article will provide you with some essential tools that will enable you to get the best deal possible.

Although very obvious, the first thing that you would want to consider is what kind of car you want to purchase. And in fact perhaps even before that, you need to determine what your specific requirements are. If you have ever bought a car before, especially a new one, then the salesman will ask you searching questions about yourself such as the size of your family, whether you travel to work or not etc, your interests and so on. All of these questions, although polite and sounded like the salesperson has an interesting new, they are really all aimed at establishing what kind of vehicle would most suit your needs so that he would be better equipped to sell you it. Just as the thousand does this work, so why not ask yourself the same question so that you are clearing your mind exactly what kind of vehicle you want.

I will give you an example: my brother, who works in the aerial installation business once went out to purchase a new van, but came back with a sports BMW!


Once you have concluded the make and model of vehicle that would best suit your needs, now you need to decide whether you are going to purchase it out right in cash, get financing for all or some of the amount and also whether you intend to part exchange any vehicle that you currently have.

If you are going to go down the finance route, then find out what kind of deal you can get from a finance company independent of the car sales dealer. After that, find out what the car dealer can offer you on a finance deal. Sometimes, because they want to shift the vehicles, they can actually offer you a better deal than you could get directly from the finance company.

Now we have that out of the way, let's look at second-hand car dealers. There is a massive range in the quality and type of used-car dealers. There are the out and out sharks, and all so the highly respected and extremely trusted local car dealer advisers. I suggest you do a little bit of homework regarding the dealer you intend to visit. If they have been selling vehicles from the same location for quite a number of years, then that is a very good sign. Also, you could ask around the local neighbourhood to find out any experiences people have had dealing with the second-hand car dealer in question. Lastly of course, you can simply just get a feel for whether the car dealer is honest or not.

Well, before this article gets too long, I will end it here and hope that you have got at least one good tip for buying a second-hand car in Stroud. Autodeals of Stroud have been in the business for over a decade and are very highly recommended. Give them a call if you are looking for a second-hand car in Gloucester. www.autodealsofstroud.co.uk

  1. Yes, it’s important that you figure out what kind of car completely answers your needs. You need to factor in the lifestyle that you have before purchasing a car. Ask questions like “Are you going to use it for yourself only or for your family as well?” Likewise, knowing your financial capacity is essential, so you know exactly what type of vehicle you can afford to pay.

  3. I definitely agree with you, Clint. You must buy a car with a full service history. This will ensure you that the vehicle you are going to purchase is still in good condition. It’s a great way to know if the car is properly maintained, and this will guarantee you that it can still serve you for a long time. You should not just rely on the words of your seller. You still need proof! ;) Make sure that you ask for documents and service history first, before you totally decide on buying a secondhand car.

  4. Nice tips, I am also studying on Car purchasing. When you purchasing a new car out of the shop, it immediately loses about 20% of its value directly away - which goes to say that purchasing a car is never going to be an financial investment. However, if you buy a second side car, you will discover an cost-effective engine at a price which won't devalue as easily as that of a new car - so purchasing a second side car can confirm to be a much cheaper buy than purchasing new.

  5. I agree with this! Ultimately, we should always do our homework before buying a used car. As for me, the most important thing to remember is to be realistic (from the price range to the car’s features) with your expectations.

  8. The most basic and simple thing to look out while buying a car is the history of the vehicle. A well maintained car will always have a service history which is kept up to date with timely service an maintenance. Another good idea is to check up the history of the seller and the reason of selling the car. After these parameters are done, one should check the condition of the car - interior, exterior, engine condition, mileage accumulated and such things.
