How to Start Shopping for Your Next Used Car, Queens, New York

Stepping onto a used car lot can be overwhelming, especially if you're not sure what you're looking for. Presented with a variety of options, you might just decide to wait or, even worse, make an impulse buy you'll regret later. Fortunately, with a little preparation and a solid plan, you can drive home in a great, reliable used vehicle with all the features you're looking for.

Doing Your Research

Before you visit a dealership, do some research about the cars you're interested in. Do you need a mid-sized SUV? Is gas mileage more important to you? Sites like Edmunds.com offer comparisons of used cars, with an emphasis on long-term reliability and common problems. If the vehicle you were interested in turns out to be a less-than-ideal investment, these sites will help you find similar, more suitable alternatives.

Where to Begin

used carYou never know what you're getting when you buy a car from a private seller, so your best bet is to visit a reputable dealership. Not all dealerships are alike, so you'll want to do some more research to find the best one in your area. Find out what other customers are saying about the lot you're considering on customer review websites, and check with your local Better Business Bureau and Consumer Affairs agencies for a history of complaints.

What to Look for in a Dealership

First and foremost, look for a dealership with a reputation for providing quality vehicles at fair prices, and who has been in business for a while. Established used car dealerships know how important word-of-mouth is, and try to give every customer the best treatment possible.
