Buying a car can be confusing. To help you get the best deal on the right car for you, we’ve put together some tips and checklists to help you through the car buying process and here we take a look at used car research.
The Internet offers an unrivalled resource for researching cars.
Check reputable sites like Whatcar.com for generic reviews to find out how manufacturers and models compare for reliability, running costs and depreciation.
Once you have drawn up a shortlist of the makes and models you like, research in-depth reviews to learn the specific pros and cons of each car.
Do enough research and not only are you more likely to end up with the right car for you, you’ll also find the dealers, classified ads and auction websites easier to understand.
