Used vehicles may lack that new car smell, but they more than make up for it in savings. Not only is a pre-owned vehicle more affordable than a new one, it's also cheaper to insure, maintain and own. And thanks to advances in technology, it's completely possible to keep a used vehicle on the road well beyond the 200,000 mile mark. Sure, the buying process may be different than it is with new vehicles - but different doesn't have to mean more difficult. As long as you follow the steps we've outlined in this guide and remember to inspect any vehicle thoroughly before signing a contract, it will be easy to find a great deal on a reliable used car. So the next time you're shopping around for a new car, make sure you stop by the pre-owned lots and see what's available. As far as vehicles go, you won't find a better deal on four wheels.
