“If you are buying a new car with a warranty, there is less risk when it comes to being taken advantage of, but it can still happen. You should always do your research when it comes to the actual value of the car. There are plenty of websites out there that will show you what other people are paying in your area for a similar car.
If you are thinking of buying a used car, you should also consider having it checked by a mechanic before purchasing it. Some things to watch out for include odd smells, uneven tire wear, vibrations, and oil leaks. “
