Used Car Buying Tips - Corwin 

Buying a used car can be a scary thing-you don't want to buy a new "problem." You want to make sure you're getting a truly good deal, and you're not sure how old is too old. But buying a used car can also be an amazing value and a reliable purchase.

Here are a few tips on how to have a good experience in used car buying:

Check all prices and reviews online
The internet truly simplifies the process of buying a used car. Look up your target car's True Market Value (TMV) to know the best price, and get all the specs from sources like Car and Driver, Edmund's, or Kelley Blue Book.

Take it for a test drive and have it checked
A seller can give you a very shiny-happy history of the prospective car, so make sure you get to take it for a spin before you by (and bolt if the seller seems hesitant). Also, if you can, take it to a trusted automotive professional to give it a clean bill of health. It's worth it for your peace of mind!

Be open to negotiating 
You can usually work out a better deal for yourself than the sticker price. Come in with a lower offer (but not too low), and know ahead of time how high you're willing to go. Know what you want, and don't let yourself be pushed around!
