You are in the market for a new used car. Where should you start to look? You do have some options like looking in the local newspaper ads or visiting used car dealers. Buying from an individual can be risky because they may be dumping a clunker. And they certainly won’t tell you this is what they are doing. They will polish and clean that car so it looks so pretty and shiny. They may spray stuff on the tires to make them look newer. But in the end they have sold you a bad deal. The worst part is they won’t take you old car as a trade in or take the car back.
Here’s a great example. I was talking to a gentleman the other day. He is getting older and is now retired. For years he worked in car sales. We had been working on finding a niche for quite a while when it came out he knew a lot about selling cars. When the topic was mentioned he automatically assumed I was talking about him going back into the workforce and selling cars again.
It’s amazing the things people have done for years, and yet they don’t consider themselves knowledgeable enough to tell other people about it. When it comes to online endeavors being an expert simply means “knowing more than other people” about any given topic. You don’t have to have a Phd in the subject to be an expert. Online, life experience counts.
Good news is that there’s a ton of information and resources available on the web when you decide that it is time to start looking for your used vehicle. In your internet browser type in “used cars pay as you go” in my area or vendita auto palermo for sale as you see there are millions of results that come up. With that being said there are many spammers on the web so being sure to do your research will really come in handy. Check for an address and phone number to make sure the company is not a spam site.
It is too easy for them to use that information and negotiate you down and out to where you lose almost all of your commissions if you still want to make a sale.
Check the tail pipe. With the engine running, go to the tail pipe and stand there and smell it. Yes I did say that. If it burns in your eyes and throat, it has a vacuum leak in the motor, often a simple fix but time consuming trying to find it. It will not pass smog with this problem. If the exhaust smells of gasoline and the tail pipe looks black, the engine is running too rich and will need an adjustment. It may or may not pass smog. Likely you will need to replace the spark plugs as well. If it smells like any other car with a catalytic converter, it is probably fine.
There are a lot of things to consider when making the decision between buying a new car or an older one. It really comes down to your financial situation and your comfort level.
