      Personally, I prefer to buy used cars from private people who are beyond anal about their cars. They tend to maintain them very well. Always have it checked out by a mechanic you trust. Pay for the full diagnostic (or have the seller pay for part or all of it).

      It is worth finding out what you are facing.

      Don’t tell them how much you are willing to pay.

      Do research online. Try, consumer reports (gives history/recommendations) – the car issue is out right now. Call your local bank for a price too, even though you are paying cash.

      They know prices too.

      The insurance company made it a salvage vehicle. I will be

      experience buying a used vehicle.

      The ones we have have been passed

      company ($10,250.0) to buy a vehicle and plan to pay cash for it. I
      have no extra money to make payments.

      Is it better to buy from an
      individual that owns the vehicle he is selling or to buy from a car
      dealer? Will the car dealers give you a discount for paying cash and
      how much would the taxes, etc. I would have to pay extra for from a

      I live in N.C. Any advice anyone can give me will be
      greatly appreciated.
