Therefore, we have decided to put together a list of questions you should ask yourself before buying a car. Hopefully this will help you throughout your car shopping experience.

Car KeyIs the vehicle 4 Wheel Drive? if so does it work properly?

This is an important question to ask, especially if you live in a cold weather climate that has snowy and icy winters. So we definitely recommend purchasing a four wheel drive vehicle to anyone who lives in those regions. Also, if your vehicle has four wheel drive, make sure that it is working properly.

If it hasn’t already, will the car pass safety and emissions?

Before you buy a car make sure that it can pass all safety and emissions testing requirements. In fact, many states have laws that require vehicles to pass an emissions test before it can be registered. Therefore, you should never buy a vehicle that has had the safety or emissions equipment tampered with.

How is the Tread on the Tires and Wear on the Brakes?

When you are considering a vehicle make sure that you check to see how much tread is left on the tires and how much wear there is on the brakes. If the tires or brakes will need to be replaced soon you may be able to negotiate a better price on the car.
