If you buy a used car, you can save up to 25 to 30 percent amount. This is a pretty good deal for one or two years’ old car.
You don’t have to pay insurance
If the seller is in a hurry, you can bargain and get a good deal

Assess your need of a car. Think about how much you are going to travel and how many passengers would usually be there in your car.
Once you come to know about the price of the car, analyze different finance options. Assess the need of taking financial loan.
Check the documents of a car including the V5 logbook, VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) insurance certificate, MOT certificate, financial documents, etc.
Check the body of the car carefully. Previous dents and mismatched paint can be easily traced.
While test-driving the car, check for noises or vibrations. Drive on different types of roads.
If the car is three to four years old, check the MOT certificates closely and if unsure about the details, call the garage where the MOT was done.
The price of a used car is the single most deciding factor today. Some cars come with manufacturer’s warranty. You can be assured, if the warranty is there. If the car history is good, then the car is not older than 2 to 3 years, and if it is a brand, go ahead and buy it. These auto tips will save you a lot of amount.
