What to Look for When Buying a Used Car

1. Before Your Current Vehicle Gives Up

Buying a Used CarThe best time to buy a used car is before the vehicle that you’re currently driving breaks down. You need a vehicle that you can rely on, so you can get to where you need to go: you don’t want to waste time waiting for a pickup truck when your car breaks down. Switching vehicles before your current vehicle will not only save you time, but also money because you can trade in your current vehicle.

2. After You Have a Workable Budget

Another great time to buy your next used car is when you can afford it. Before you jump into a big purchase, such as a used car, you need to have a budget put together that you can work with. To put together a budget that you can afford, sit down and thoroughly inspect your income and existing monthly payments to see how much you can afford for monthly car payments and a down payment.

3. When the Seasons Change

Winter TiresDepending on the kind of vehicle that you want, which season you shop during can have an impact on how much you save on your next used vehicle. If you want a convertible, which is more of a summer car, then shop during the winter. If you want a vehicle with all-wheel or four-wheel drive, which are good for winter, shop for it during the spring or summer.

4. Around Specific Holidays Throughout the Year

Like many other shops and stores that you visit, used car dealerships have big sales around certain holidays throughout the year, including President’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, the Fourth of July, Black Friday, and Christmas. Shopping around these holidays could get you an even better deal on a used vehicle you’re looking at.
