Buying a used car can be a rewarding experience. However, sometimes you end up getting a bad deal if you’re not careful. With so many cars to choose from its easy to make a decision very quickly. This is the biggest mistake that someone will make when looking for a used car to buy. If you’re not careful with your purchase decision it could end up costing you thousands of dollars.
The YouTube Strategy
If you are new to buying used cars the first thing you should do is find some one that is knowledgeable in cars. It’s almost like having a mentor in business, doing the same in making a purchase decision for an automobile is a wise move. If you cannot find someone that knows a lot about cars the next best option is to go on Youtube and search for something like “how to buy a used car” or something like that. If you are taking advice from one of these YouTubers, make sure you read the comments first. If you see many people are disagreeing with what was said in the video then chances are the information is incorrect. However, if you see lots of people agreeing with the video and commenting in a positive manner then it would be logical to assume that the information provided is good.
You can also find some information on buying a used car on blogs. There are many web sites online that talk about cars in general and I’m sure you can find some categories on car buying. Compare the information you find on the web site to what others are saying on Youtube.
When you are ready to buy and have all the information you need the next thing you will need to consider is financing and insurance. If you need to finance a car visit your bank and ask them how much you qualify for a loan. Most used car dealerships will be able to get financing for you on the spot but you really should check with your bank first to avoid disappointment. For insurance, if you already have an insurance company on a car that you own you can call them and get an estimate on the car you want to buy. Some people get shocked when they find out what the difference in rates can be on different cars. If you don’t have an insurance company there are tools online that help you find the best rate. Use these to get an overall idea of how much you might have to pay for the car you want to buy.
Private or Dealership?
You should consider both used car dealerships and private sale. If you have a certain car in mind which you should, do some research on the prices of these cars and include things such as mileage and features. You will see that this same car of the same year may have a large discrepancy in price. This could be a result of many of reasons such as mileage and general condition of the car.
If you’re going to be buying a used car from a dealership they may offer you a warranty or included with the purchase price. This is a good option to have as it will give you peace of mind. Make sure that you have any car that you want to buy checked out thoroughly by a mechanic. There could be hidden problems which you may not know about and even if you have a warranty from the used car dealership it may not cover those issues.
Buying a used car can save you a ton of money when comparing the prices of new cars. Keep in mind the older the car the more chances of things going wrong so it’s best to buy a car that is no more than five years old. If you are handy with cars and plan on doing mechanical work yourself then really age of the vehicle should not matter. Best of luck in your search for a used car.…

Transmission Repairs can Break The Bank
Transmission service and repair is anything but cheap. Therefore, when you choose a repair shop you had better ensure it is a choice you will not regret. On average, a transmission repair cost will range between $1000 to $4000. The last thing you want after paying this much is a slipshod service and you end up with transmission problems, again.
Poor repairs mean you end up spending more and unfortunately, the problem does not end. You must choose right and in most case pay the price for a good service. To cut the chase, there are a few things you must look into before settling for your clutches and transmission repairs shop.
Ask for recommendations
You are not the only one who owns a car. Your family, friends, and neighbors own one too and they must have experienced transmission problems. Ask them for recommendations for they may know some great repair shops. Your interest should be on their experience, how much they paid and if they got excellent customer service. If yes, you may not have to search any farther.
Keep away from cheap and over-the-top repair services
Well, repairs are not cheap. But this does not mean you have to pay an arm and leg for your car. Any shop charging expensively may not be honest. Can they really account for that exaggerated figure in what they will tackle in your car? Probably not.
On the other hand, cheap begets cheap. Be on the lookout for shops that charge low prices. What they never tell you is that their services are of low quality. A moderate transmission repair price is what you should go for. You can be sure of satisfying work done on your vehicle.
Anyone with spanners and greasy apron can claim to be a mechanic (after all, those are their tools of trade). But would you trust just anyone to work on your car’s transmission? No way. You have to check and ascertain that the mechanics are certified by the relevant national or state body. If they are, you can relax knowing that your car is in the best hands. This is someone who is trained for the job, has impressive experience in the field, and most importantly is passionate about their work.
Get an estimate
Have you ever taken your car for transmission repair and the mechanic has no clue of how much it will cost beforehand? You had better run because you are in the wrong shop. A great repair shop can diagnose your car’s transmission problem and tell you how much it will cost. That is a professional who knows their job. Getting an estimate even works to your advantage: you will not be slapped with surprise repair fees when all is done.
From looking around, you can tell whether a repair shop is good for your car. A clean and well-organized space is a good sign of professionalism. Bit off or sleazy shops should not even be in your list of consideration. But you may have to look deeper than the good appearance of a potential repair shop.
If you take your car seriously, as everyone does, you will not be taking chances when you are looking for a transmission repair center. It has to be certified mechanics, clean and organized shop, and the right price for the job.
