Buying A Used Car? Make Sure You Dodge That Lemon!

Used cars often provide a very attractive way to get more car for less money.  However, if you fail to ask the right questions BEFORE you sign on the dotted line, you could find yourself on the road to numerous car problems.

When it comes to used cars, the biggest assumption is that dealers have to disclose if the car has an accident history.  Unfortunately, when it comes to accidents, it’s don’t ask, don’t tell.  Dealers are only required to disclose if the car has a lemon, salvage, flood, or reconstructed title.

To make sure your car buying experience runs smoothly, we have created the Lemon Dodger, an all inclusive worksheet that provides all the questions you need to ask when dealing with the dealer.  Remember just because a car is new to you does not mean it’s  new to the repair shop.  Ask the right questions now to avoid headaches later.  Happy shopping!
