Check that Car: Clunker or Keeper?
Quick tip: ALWAYS have a professional mechanic inspect a used vehicle before you do any purchase paperwork. This is especially important if you are thinking about purchasing a used vehicle from a small, local dealer or a private seller. It may cost you a few bucks but having a stamp of approval from a mechanic you trust on a used vehicle is essential to making an informed decision regarding whether to purchase the vehicle.
A vehicle is usually a person’s second-most expensive investment [after her home] so, just like when buying a home, it makes common sense to have it inspected prior to purchase. It may even be a good idea to obtain a warranty for your used vehicle. A poor quality used vehicle will wind up being a money pit and source of constant frustration long after the purchase is made.
