Buying used vehicles sounds like a simple task that most every adult in America has done in their lifetime. This is true except for the fact that in today's inflationary times, a vehicle may well be the second largest purchase a person makes next to their home. What is truly amazing is the very little thought and research typically done by today's average vehicle buyer. Most people go out on a Sunday afternoon and in the space of a few hours, sign a contract for anywhere from $20,000-$50,000. This is of course assuming that they decide to buy something new instead of "pre owned". This book is designed to assist the average buyer into the wonderful world of used vehicle purchasing. The ideal of buying used is very frightening to many Americans. The fact is that "buying somebody else's troubles" is reminiscent of many people's attitude. I submit that with the help of a book such as this, a buyer can get a vehicle that will last for many years for a fraction of the cost of buying new. Buying Used Vehicles is not a scientific study by any stretch of the imagination. It is simply a set of experiences put down by an average person with a slightly larger than average amount of purchases and sales to his credit. This book is very short so it would not take a great deal of time to read and absorb, which given the pace of most people's lives these days fits in better than a long textbook on the subject. If just one of the precepts shown herein allows a vehicle buyer to avoid getting stuck with a "lemon" than it probably would be worthwhile. This is the only goal I had in my mind when I put this book together. Some very simple things can sometimes spell the difference between getting a serviceable vehicle and buying a pretty but useless showpiece. In the years I have been buying cars, motorcycles and boats, I have learned that some very common misconceptions exist in the motoring public. One of the biggest is that they learned how to buy vehicles by observing how their parents did it. I was the same way as a young man when things were much simpler and far less legislated. This chronology of vehicle purchases hopefully will illustrate that although fraught with pitfalls, the purchase of something used can be rewarding and very cost efficient. As a somewhat "certifiable" vehicle "nut" I hope that there may be at least a single passage is this work that will help someone avoid the many possible mistakes in buying used. "Good Hunting" to you all!!!!
