Choose a Reputable Dealer
Before buying a car from any dealership, do your research. Check online reviews, talk to friends and neighbors, and ask for references. There will always be a disgruntled customer or two, but that should not be the norm.
Avoid VIN Fraud
One of the frauds you could come across is VIN fraud. Stolen cars often have the VIN switched out for a vehicle that has not been stolen. If the paperwork is messed up or the car is stolen, the owner could end up out or a vehicle through no fault of his own. Here are ways to make sure everything is on the up and up:
- One red flag is vehicles for sale well below competitor’s prices and the car’s value
- The same VIN should be on the dashboard, under the hood, inside the door, and the paperwork
- Make sure the paperwork is error-free
- Examine the car’s history report carefully
