Before you go out looking for a used car, you will need to do a lot of your research before you can feel comfortable with the decision. You should spend some time so that you can make a better decision that you won't end up regretting.  When you go to purchase a used car, you need to think about the needs and budget that you have. Do you need a car that is for weekends, or do you want to drive it back and forth everyday.

Think about what the car is for and what you need. Then decide how many wants you can satisfy with your budget. You will want to learn about the car that you are looking for. The model, the options, the prices, and how much it depreciates each year. Once you have made some decisions, there are a few things that you have to look out for when purchasing the used car.

First, look out for your payments. Make sure that there are no last minute surprises when it comes to getting a payment plan. Make sure that what you sign as all the information about your loan including the time period that you will have to pay and the amount of each payment.

You will also want to know when your payment is due and usually they will give you a payment book so that you can keep track of what you have paid for the car and what is left on your current balance. You should also know about any repercussions that you may have if you skip or send a payment late. You don't want to get slammed with bills because your payment was a day late.

Then you need to watch out for the dealer. You should ask around what some people think about the dealer and see if the feedback is encouraging or not. Then you can always get their rating at the BBB and see how many complaints where put in about the dealer and then you can decide rather or not you would like to push through with the deal.

Then you have to think about the warranty. There are a lot of used cars salesmen that have a warranty for thirty days and that's it. If you see that the dealer doesn't back up their cars, then you need to look at another dealer because there is something wrong with the car. Then there are dealers that give you tons of options. You should only pay for the extended warranty for what you think you might need. Make sure that you always have the major things covered, the transmission and motor, so that you don't get thousands of dollars in repairs.

You need to pay attention to the way that they treat other customers, especially those who are concerned. Also, make sure that you look around and observe the dealer and the body language. You can usually tell whose a snake by watching them.
