4. Where to Buy

Take your time to examine the options you have for purchasing your vehicle. You arenโ€™t limited to dealerships. You can also consider:

- A private seller through a direct connection or an online marketplace where individuals sell their vehicles to individuals instead of to a dealership

- Used car lots owned independently or by chain operations

- Local newspapers

- Craigslist or Facebook marketplaces in your area

- Consider buying at an auction as long as you know the rules and requirements since you can score a great deal at some auctions.

Take your time making your purchase because the car you select is one youโ€™re going to have to deal with for the next couple years at least, whether you decide to buy a car at auction or from a dealership. Make the car shopping process a bit easier by following these tips. Youโ€™ll have a better experience and get an even better deal than you expected.
