Summer Cars

Buying a new or used car is an event that usually comes up every few years or so. There are a million different ways to do it--dealership, online, or even driving around and looking for "sale" signs. Many people don't mind buying a used car, but at the same time not enough people know the inner workings of a car well enough to really know what they might be getting into with a used car. The key is trying to find a happy medium.

Most used car dealers can seem pretty shady--even shadier than just buying a car off an abandoned lot. The best way to find a trustworthy dealer is to find one who A: sells new cars as well as used cars, and B: has been around for more than a few years. For instance, finding a dealership that sells used Fords and well as new Fords is a great find. This lets the buyer know that this dealership has a reputation to uphold, and wouldn't sell used or new cars that weren't up to par.

Buying a new car--whether it's new to the buyer or literally new--is a decision that needs to be made carefully. For most of us, it will also be a decision that needs to be accompanied by some kind of associate who can guide us to what we really want. We shouldn't let that old stereotype of the greedy, sneaky car dealer scare us away--going to a used car dealer is not a bad thing to do. The only trick they might pull is trying to talk you out of buying a used car in favor of buying a new one!
