The FIVE things you should do when purchasing a used car.

1.  Come up with a budget!

2.  Narrow down the type of car and research its suggested value.

3.  Negotiate your deal.  Do not take the deal on the spot; give yourself some time to think about it.

4.  Check and double-check before you write the check.

5.  Go to to see how good your deal is.
