It has been a while since I’ve posted a Squawkback reader question. I’d love to hear your tips, gotchas, and tricks when shopping for and buying used cars. Ever since my “better half’s” 2005 Subaru Impreza was in a crazy accident and declared a total write-off by the insurance company, we’ve been in the market to replace our wheels.
The challenge is, I have no idea how to buy a used car. We’ve looked for used cars online, used cars by owner, and checked out various used car dealers. I’m stumped. I’m not loving the “wheelin’ and dealin’ games” and I want to avoid buying an expensive lemon.
So if you’ve got some ideas on how to save money on a quality used car I’d love to hear from you.
What are your tips, tricks, and gotchas for buying used cars?
