September 28, 2016
Looking for a used car? With nearly 40 million used car sales per year, you’re in good company.
With so many choices on the market, Tim’s Truck Capital and Auto Sales has created this list of steps to help you find your perfect car. Reach out to our experienced and knowledgeable team for more personalized help.
Step 1: Determine Your Car Budget
If you're taking out a loan to pay for your car, aim for a payment of less than 20 percent of your take-home pay. Used cars sometimes need a little extra attention for new tires and maintenance and the like.
Step 2: Create a Target List of Used Cars
Make a list of three cars that meet your needs and fit your budget. For example, the Ford Fusion or Kia Optima cost a few thousand less than the
Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Step 3: Research Online
One easy place to create your target list is at timstruckcapital.com where you can filter your search by many factors including mileage on the car's odometer, price and other features.
Step 4: Check the Vehicle History Report
AutoCheck and Carfax are reputable sources for vehicle history reports. All you need is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
Step 5: Test-Drive the Car
Test driving a used car is the best way to know if this car has the feel and features for you.
Step 6: Have the Car Inspected
If you are serious about buying the car, have it inspected by a mechanic.
