Let's make one thing clear: getting the best deal from used car dealers doesn't happen overnight. It takes time and preparation to do your research and compare options. If you want to find the perfect deal, putting in time and effort is key. However, there's nothing like the feeling of pride you'll have when it pays off and you find the perfect deal. Here are four tips that'll help you get the ride you want.

First you need to ask yourself some questions: What's your dream ride? What models do you like best? How old should it be, and how many miles should it have? How much are you willing to spend? By answering these questions, you'll have a better idea of what you really want and what you're willing to settle for. If you know this before you walk into a dealership you'll have a much easier time negotiating a great deal on the car you want.

Of course, knowing what you want isn't the same as getting it. When you visit used car dealers, you need to remember that the salespeople want to make a sale. If they see that you're unsure, they might try to guess at what you want, and suggest a different vehicle. If they think you're uncertain about the price, they might push you towards a cheaper option with more miles. That's why it's important to know exactly what you want; you'll be able to clearly communicate your main criteria to the dealer, and they can tell you if it's available. Don't worry if you have to be a bit stubborn from time to time, especially if you're considering a recommended sale.

Request a title and a Carfax record, which will rule out all scamming hacks and save you a hassle at the DMV. Try to find out other facts about the vehicles' history, such as who its previous owners were and any maintenance performed by the dealership.

When you've found a car you think you want, ask the salesperson if you can take it to your personal mechanic, if you have one. Having a trusted mechanic is like having a lawyer or accountant; they're a reliable source of expert advice that can help you make an informed decision. Used car dealers should let you drive a possible purchase to your mechanic for a real-time inspection during your test drive (let your mechanic know beforehand). This is the only way to know if what you're buying is truly worth it.

While motor oil is used in many different kinds of engines, we most often think of using it in our automobiles. Whether you change your oil at a dealership, in specialty business, or in your own garage, you will need to determine what kind is best for your car. It can make a big difference in how long your car's engine will last.
