Buying A Used Car From A Dealer Sucks

…and some times it doesn't!

Can anyone remember someone selling a perfectly good working car? Nope. Well maybe 1 out of 100 sell or trade a great car. When the car is sick, the owner tries to sell it (rather than sink cash into it)! Beware FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and dealers that slam a car out front then worry about what's broken later. If the used car you're looking at is not being offered for sale by a reputable dealer, then you might be buying someone elses money pit!

As a buyer, you must be aware of the things to look for when wanting to buy a quality used car (see my previous blog titled: "8 Keys To A Better Car Deal"). You must also know who the reputable dealers are.

So...what's the bottom line? It's simple: "If you don't know cars, you'd better know the dealer." And knowing the dealer is easier than ever. Visit "Dealers That Don't Suck" for a state-by-state listing of the most reputable used car dealers in the nation.
