Planning to buy my first car and looking for some used ones. I am very uninformed when it comes to cars like i dont know anything. Is it advisable to look in craigslist or just go to a dealer? And also what to look for when buying a used car?
you can find much better deals buying from a private seller, usually.
number one thing, any car you consider buying. take it to a good mechanic to look the car over for any problems.
consumer reports car buying kit is a good investment also.
Try also ebay.com and autotrader.com - to get a idea of the prices.
the private seller thing isn't completely true. private sellers dont have to promise any warranty at all, while if dealerships sell you a later to be POS, can.
