Buying a car can be scary, used or new. You certainly hear more about sketchy car salesmen than you do the honest ones. But getting a used car can be extra intimidating. Who knows what’s really wrong with that car you want?

These tips are super helpful so you don’t end up in a bind over buying a piece of crap car. Find out exactly what you need to keep an eye out for and some of the tricks that could be used to con you.

And many of them were ready to call a tow truck and pay for a shop to fix the problem! That could cost hundreds of dollars for something that would take you a couple minutes to fix yourself!
You don’t have to be a mechanic to have a basic understanding of your car. I like to take my car to a parts store and get advice from them before taking it to a shop. Lots of times, they help me for free when I buy a part there.
