Why do I need the car?

Always make sure to ask yourself why you need a car. If you have recently landed a new job and need it for commuting purposes, maybe a car that has great gas mileage would be important to consider. Maybe you are a college student and features like a sunroof are more important to you than gas mileage. Whatever the reason may be, make sure you know what you want before you start blindly looking for a vehicle.

What are my must-haves?

Before even looking at a car, you need to ask yourself what are your must-haves? If you are living in a big city and will be parallel parking often, maybe a rearview camera is a must-have. If you find that you are going to possibly be raising a family in the near future, maybe you need extra space and a very safe, reliable car.

How much can I afford?

Possibly one of the most important questions to ask, this is something that you need to ask yourself before even thinking about buying a car. Set your budget and be realistic.

May I see a copy of the car's history report?

If you have decided that buying a used vehicle is more your speed, make sure to always ask about the accident history of the car. Ideally, the dealer will provide you with both the CARFAX report and an AutoCheck report so you will know about a potentially bad issue that the car may have.
