Tips for buying a car

If you’re in the market for your next car, you may be feeling overwhelmed or unsure where to start. Here are our top tips for buying a used car, to make sure you get the right motor and the right deal.


Do you really need a huge 4x4 for you and your pug? Probably not.

Do you think you can squeeze everything into that slick sports car? Again, probably not.

Size is such an important factor when choosing your next car. Too big and you will be wasting fuel and money, too small and you will be forever sighing at the lack of boot space when you come to load it up with your Tesco food shop.


You need to have a clear idea of what you want to spend on your next car. It can be easy to get caught up in the vast choice of cars available, but you need to stick to the budget you have set. Whether you have an overall total spend in mind or a monthly finance budget, stick to what you have set and know what you can get for your money.


If there are any little extras you are adamant on having in your next car, be that heated seats or a sat-nav, make a note of what you’re looking for. While it isn’t wise to have a list as long as your arm, it is a good idea to know what you want before you head into your search.


Before you step foot into any dealership or enquire about any vehicles, make sure you have done your research. If you already have a vehicle in mind, it is good to know what you can get for your money across the board, including age of vehicle and anticipated mileage.
