  • Check the paperwork. Always read before you sign. Many consumers have complained that they end up with a contract that have terms that don’t match what they agreed to verbally. Make sure the vehicle identification number on the contract matches the actual car.
  • Always have any used vehicle checked by an independent mechanic.
  • There are many popular websites to shop for cars, and you can use those listings to get an idea of what sort of price is reasonable, as well as possible issues with some models, such as recall alerts.
  • Beware high-pressure sales tactics. You always have the right to walk away if someone won’t give you clear answers or is encouraging you to make a decision before you have time to think about it.
