When it comes to buying a previously owned vehicle, buying from used car dealerships is typically safer than purchasing an automobile from a private seller. Buying a previously owned vehicle over a used one provides the consumer with a variety of benefits. While there are a huge amount of listings for private sellers located everywhere from local newspapers to the Internet, buying from a dealer will give you more protection than buying privately. Many dealers offer certifications and other protections. Plus, you will get the assurance that comes with seeing the automobile in person, test driving it, and having it checked by a mechanic before you purchase, while buying on the Internet may not give you all of those reassurances.
Used car dealerships cannot legally sell you a broken car, which is not completely true when buying privately. A vehicle must meet certain quality standards before a dealer can sell it to you. A vehicle that has a basic mechanical issue or problem that causes it to not operate properly such as brakes that don't function or broken shocks, cannot be sold by used car dealerships. It is also not in the interest of dealers, which are businesses, to sell improperly operating vehicles. Some vehicles may be sold "as is," in which case you should take extra precautions before you hand over any of your money. Dealers also sell vehicles that are "certified," meaning that the automobile has gone through some kind of thorough inspection, and it may come with a warranty.
Although buying from a private seller is often cheaper, there are more risks associated with doing so. The vehicle could be stolen, or it could be damaged in some way that may not be immediately evident or detectable. If when purchasing from a private seller you come across any damage or problems down the line, you will need to be sure that you have evidence and that you have a way of contacting the seller.
Used car dealerships can also help you with the process of transferring all of the associated paperwork involved with ownership, and they also may be able to help you with financing. Some even accept trade-ins. It is pretty unlikely that you will find any kind of deal even close when buying privately. Plus, when buying from a dealer, you will not need to have several meetings with people you do not know and go through the process of having the vehicle inspected by a mechanic, and test-driving the vehicle over and over again. Used car dealerships simply give you a variety of benefits you will not find elsewhere.
