Buying a used car can be exciting and scary at the same time. You are excited that you are getting something new to you, but at the same time, you don’t want to get scammed or ripped off. Think about it, you buy a used car that seems great, but months down the road, the car says, “Pull over, check engine.” I’ve had this happen when buying an undisclosed flooded car with electrical issues.
If anyone tells you a vehicle is an investment, don’t trust them – they’re lying! Unless you own a vehicle destined to become highly collectible, you’re going to lose thousands of dollars through depreciation. That’s not to discourage you from owning a car. Just be aware that it’s all but guaranteed to lose value between the time you buy it and when you sell it.
