Some essential advice before buying a used car according to Mike Brewer Wheeler Dealers
" If you're in a market for a used car you might want this old Ferrari 308. They aren't just folding. There are a few things that you should do if we set off to go and buy a car. The first of which is to use your phone, maybe your landline or your mobile phone, and phone with data service. Somebody like HPI or the AA, and they can give you all the information you would need to know whether the car is pretty involved in any accidents, whether the police have got an interest, but more importantly, if it's got any finance outstanding. Now, the only information you need to give him is a registration number of a car. And if you can, get the chassis number of the owner as well. That way, you can find out that the car you're buying is genuine rather than setting off to go [unk] in the first place. All it cost is the same price as a tanker fuel, and it's the best money you'll ever spend. Secondly, when you arrive to go and see the car, make sure that the car has not been previously rammed before you got there. What I mean by that is put your hand on the body, although dirty on this Ferrari, or look can be stupid because the engine on this car is down the back. So, when I do get to the car, I can put the key in ignition and see if there's any nasty fumes or black smoke coming out the Exhaust pipe. Now, the other thing to do is when you do go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork tallies to the place where you're actually standing. You'd be amazed of the amount of people who buy a car from the petrol station or from a pump carpark. What you should do, is when you go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork says you'll stand in the barn any town. Make sure you all stand in at the barn any town to come and see the car. That way, you know that you're buying a genuine car of a genuine owner. Now, when you do finally get there, and you've checked that it's not been previously rammed, you're standing in the right place, and you've done your days check, don't let your heart rule your head because you can't get carried away, especially with something as evocative as this lovely 308 GT4. You want to make sure that you've got yourself a price and stick to it. Don't go above it; otherwise, you could end up to shell your money out forever in a day to keep that thing on the road. If the car has got any outstanding finance, then make sure you speak to the finance company before you go to see the vehicle and find out what that settlement figure should be. That way, you can give the owner the balance of the vehicle that you've agreed to purchase it from, and send the settlement figure directly to the finance company. That way, you know it's been paid. Other than that, happy motoring."

Used Car Buying Guide & Tips
In this video I go over the basic checks, and practices that one needs to
do when buying a new old car. If you stick with this guide then you should
greatly reduce your chances of getting stuck with a problem stricken car.
Also, this video is intended to address the needs of a cheap used car. I
say in the video between 1 and 3 thousand dollars. If you are purchasing a
more expensive car you may also need to check into if it has a salvage
title, or has it just been painted, and other things, but given the price
range this video deals with, those things are not important.

13 Car Buying Mistakes - How Auto Dealerships rip you off - by The Homework Guy
http://www.thebusinessforumshow.com/ Kevin Hunter, Host of The Business
Forum Show, spent countless hours researching and compiling the information
and data shared on this video.
People in the car business who profit from your mistakes by taking
advantage of you will rant about things we share here and disagree with the
content, but don't be fooled by their rhetoric. A dishonest car salesperson
absolutely loves an ignorant car shopper. We will try to help you avoid the
common mistakes, and assist you in sorting the facts from the baloney in
this business. We profit nothing regardless of what you choose to do, and
we don't mind if you choose to not use the information. If you do, you'll
find yourself walking away with a much better car deal. If you don't, you
don't have much room to complain when this stuff happens.
How do Car Dealers rip you off? This video presents 13 different car buying
mistakes that you can't afford to make when car shopping. If you're going
to car shop and don't want to be taken advantage of, it's up to you to
learn about car salesmen and auto dealerships, and the dirty tricks they
play to rip people off. You also need to learn about the scams and
inappropriate products sold by both new and used car dealers, and why some
things dealers offer should NEVER be purchased. These include things like
the theft protection scam, GAP insurance that is sold to consumers who
either didn't need it, or could have purchased much cheaper from their own
insurance agent, and extended warranties that are often sold to buyers who
didn't want them or need them. To make matters worse, there are also
thousands of car dealers who employ finance officers that are some of the
most unscrupulous people you'll ever meet, willing to tell you any lie they
can come up with to sell you everything I've described, and more. The worst
ones will even claim your interest rate on your loan is only available if
you buy all the added products they are proposing. They claim the 'bank'
wants the car protected.... which is BS... On the contrary, the bank wants
your loan as small as possible so if they need to repossess the car, they
can get their money out of it.
This video was published to help you discover how you can save time and
money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your homework first,
and then going car shopping as an informed buyer.
Is it unreasonable to expect a little old-fashioned honesty? We don't think
so, but we are more than amused by the countless car salespeople or car
dealers who contact us and state that we are making a 'small problem' sound
far worse than it is. They also tell us the entire video is completely
fabricated baloney. Really? Are you kidding us? We know there are honest
people in the car business, and we receive positive comments from many of
them, but it's definitely a buyer beware world out on the car lot!
For all of you car buyers who are well steeped in reality, if you watched
the video "Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this
video. By understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a
smarter car buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car
dealer when buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up
front with an honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority
of dealer owners (truly transparent and honest dealers make up about 40% of
all dealers), and you are unlikely to know the difference until it's far
too late. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car deal
that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is all
about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some
customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car
from a dealer. If you do stuff like this, that makes you a crook too,
doesn't it? When a car dealer loses money on a deal, they just take it
from the next unsuspecting person. We don't think your neighbor should have
to pay for your car, so we encourage you to be fair and honest. Everything
we talk about has to do with fairness and honesty, and that works both
ways. Respect the dealers right to make money in your quest to get a fair
and honest car deal, proving to them you're an honest person too. It's this
kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers alike that will change the
car business. We wish you the best!
