Buying a Used Car

Recent data indicates that 60% of US consumers have been priced out of the new car market. As a result, used vehicle purchases now account for 72% of automotive sales. With the average used car purchase price coming in just under $15,000, consumers can’t afford to make a mistake.  A vehicle history report can be a powerful tool in avoiding a vehicle with a troubled past. Few used car buyers have their prospective purchase independently inspected for mechanical issues before the sale. Ignoring these steps can be a costly mistake.
