Steps for Buying a Used Car

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 80

When looking to purchase a used car, you should always obtain a VIN (vehicle identification number) number so that you will be able to find out the history and ownership of the car. One thing that is especially important is whether or not the vehicle has been involved in an accident or if there might be possible liens against the car. Usually, though not always, liens have been paid-off by the owner of the car dealership. Next you will need to run the VIN number for a check of its history.

It's important to know the history of a used car and to know that there are no problems that might occur later. If the car has been wrecked and repaired, there can be multiple problems with the vehicle among them, a bent frame which will cause severe misalignment and the tires to wear out more-rapidly.

Some used car dealerships have an in-house finance option, and you will be able to get a loan through them. This can be important because if you can't get financed elsewhere, there are alternatives available that make purchasing less-expensive and will have a better finance agreement.

Another problem for many car buyers in today's market is bad credit. If you have had a car reposed or have bad credit due to circumstances beyond your control, this can make obtaining a loan very difficult. If you've had to file for bankruptcy, there can be even more problems involving the purchase of the vehicle. All these things add up to problems; however, there are solutions.

When you've found the right car and are ready to purchase, make sure the lending agency you choose has a good-working agreement with your local credit union or bank. You will need someone who can make you the best interest-rate offer and is able to do business locally in your area. Make sure you have followed the steps and are certain that you have the car that will best suit you and your family. Have all your information ready so that you can give the right information to the person you're dealing with, and be sure that you have checked to find out about extended warranties and any charges that will apply to that end of the purchase.

If you will be paying the insurance through the loan, you need to have that information in front of you, as well. Buying a used car doesn't mean settling, it means that you're purchasing a vehicle that will fit your budget and circumstances.
