What Can I Look for in a Used Car Dealer?

Choosing a Used Car Dealer

Used car dealers don't deserve such a bad reputation. Most are honest people working to make a living, just like everyone else. When you are ready to buy a used car it makes sense that you would want to work with reputable used car dealers. Here are some tips to help you choose one of the good ones.

Ask Around
Most of us ask for recommendations about schools, doctors and dentists. Why not ask friends, family and co-workers about used car dealers? If someone you know has had a good experience you can likely approach the dealer with confidence.

Check Out the Dealer
Agencies such as the Better Business Bureau, your local Attorney General's office or even a consumer protection agency can help you in your research of used car dealerships.

Visit the Dealer
Before you begin shopping, take a stroll around the used car dealership. Notice how the dealers behave. Is the dealership clean and well-organized? Is there a mechanic onsite? Is this a used car dealer you would feel comfortable working with?
