Apart from a home, a car will be one of your biggest financial investments. AANT’s expert advice can help you with your buying decision. Whether you are buying from the current owner or a dealer, there are three main factors to consider when buying a used car:
- Your needs
- Safety and reliability, and
- Cost (including purchase price and ongoing maintenance costs)
We recommend you take your time, ask to see the vehicle’s service record and go for a test drive. To make this process easier, the AANT has produced a Used Car Buyer’s Checklist to help you identify potential safety and maintenance issues. And before you agree on a price, call the AANT Technical Advice Hotline on 1300 661 466 for an independent RedBook valuation.
