Four years ago I totaled my car and I needed a new vehicle. A friend and I looked for a new or good used car for a couple of days. We had trouble finding a trusted dealer in the surrounding area. We would go to a car lot and check out cars, but there was always something wrong with them or the price was too high. Finally, we decided to check into a different kind of car dealership.
I was looking for a Toyota Corolla and the people at the dealership was nice. They didn't try to shove the first car down my throat. They didn't try to sell me something expensive so they could make money off of me. The dealer listened to what I wanted and showed me the exact type of car I was looking for. I test drove the car, decided it was for me and bought it on the spot. It is hard to find a dealer you can trust. If you want to make sure the used car you’ll buy is still in good condition, you may want to have it thoroughly checked by a qualified mechanic.
A trusted dealer is like a real friend who wants what is right for you. If somebody tries to sell you something you do not want or are unable to afford, make sure you turn and run the other way. Only buy the car you want and not the car a particular dealer wants you to buy to line their own pockets with your money.
