Buying a car is a huge decision that warrants a lot of thought and research. There are many things to consider when buying a car, including whether it's best to purchase a new or used car.
As of 2015, good cars to buy used include the 2008 Mazda3, the 2005 Toyota Avalon, Acura TL, TSX and RL; and the 2010 to 2012 Kia Soul. Higher-priced good used cars include the 2013-2014 Hyundai Elantra, the 2008 to 2012 Honda Accord and 2009 Infinity M.
In addition to purchasing a used car from local dealers, it is possible to buy one through various online retailers, including Cars.com, Auction Auto USA and Usedcars.com. The websites provide detailed information and tools to help customers find suitable cars for their needs.
To buy a used car, set a budget, create a list of vehicles that meet your needs and budget, research prices and customer reviews, and find used cars in your area through online classified ads or local used car superstores. Obtain a vehicle history report before contacting the seller.
The simplest way to sell a used car is to find a local buyer. To advertise a used car for sale, publish an ad in a local newspaper, or list the car on Craigslist. Social media, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram, provides another way to get the word out.
The top three best used cars by make and model are the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, as listed by About.com. Other great used cars are the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado.
