Ask virtually anyone and they¬†will likely say that finding and purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is not on his or her top ten list of favorite things to do. This is typically the result of an overwhelming selection in a wide variety of price ranges and high pressure sales tactics from sales people pushing used cars in O’Fallon.

7 Tips for Finding the Best Used Cars in O'Fallon

However, if you are prepared, buying a used auto can actually be a pleasant experience while saving you money at the same time. Financing is often available for all credit histories, even car loans with defaulted credit.

Here are 7 excellent tips to follow to ensure that you come away from a dealer with a great used car and an even greater deal.

  1. Determine your budget. Decide what you can actually afford to spend; ideally this is less than 20% of your income. Using an online payment calculator can help you stay on track in this area.
  2. Save your money by purchasing an auto that is not at the top of the popularity list. Different manufacturers offer basically the same vehicle under a different name. Pick your top 3 choices.
  3. Look online at Edmonds or another source to locate the true market value (TMV) of your selections. Read customer reviews of each one.
  4. Check the vehicle history report with the auto’s VIN.
  5. Test drive and examine the service records.
  6. Get a thorough inspection by a mechanic or other knowledgeable person.
  7. Negotiate a fair price and get it in writing.
