Top 4 ways to prevent used car scams

If you do anything at all, do at least these 4 tasks, it's your best odds for success.

1) Have a mechanic put the car up on a lift for inspection and to check for accident damage.

2) Run a VIN Report to see if the car was totaled, salvaged, rebuilt, flooded, failed inspection, stolen, or has odometer fraud.

3) Never sign an "As Is" paper at a used car dealer, get at least a 30 day warranty included.

4) Have your own financing and loan approvals ready BEFORE you go shopping, not after.

 

USED CAR TIPS

Choosing the right vehicle - Choosing the type of vehicle you want and need is a very personal decision. Sport utility? Truck? Family Sedan? Sport Coupe? Convertible? Performance? There are several very good buying guides and magazines available to help you make that decision. They have a good section of used car reviews from selected manufacturers dating as far back as 1991. It's always a good idea to do your homework and do some research on the type of vehicle your looking for.

Are there any outstanding recalls? - For you and your passengers safety, it's always a good idea to find out if there are any outstanding recalls on your vehicle. Online databases such as www.nhtsa.dot.gov has recall information of all vehicle makes and models.
