Buying a used vehicle does not have to be a challenge. A little preparation and planning in advance will allow you to purchase a reliable and affordable pre-owned car, whether you will be paying cash or need to apply for car loans in Everett.
Before starting your used car shopping, you should carefully consider the following:
- Your budget. When deciding how much vehicle you can afford, be sure to include not only the car payment, but fuel, insurance, maintenance and licensing. Do not be tempted to buy an auto that is more than you can reasonably afford.
- The actual vehicle price. When you find a car or two that falls in your budgetary range, feel free to negotiate with the sales staff at the dealership. You can almost always secure a better price if you put forth the effort.
- How you will pay for the car. If you plan to finance, know that you can likely get auto loans with any credit This also covers a poor credit history. If you bring a copy of your credit report with you to the dealer, this can help you when you try to strike a bargain. Be more concerned with the APR or annual percentage rate rather than just the monthly payment.
- The contract. Closely read and re-read the contract. Before signing, discuss rebates, warranties, incentives, interest rates and package deals. Be certain that you understand everything you are signing as this commitment will follow you for several years.
