The first thing you'll want to do is find a car that fits your needs. That means matching the make, model year, and general condition of the vehicle with what it is you want in your used car. It's important to remember that used cars depreciate quickly, so do your research to make sure you can afford the payments on whatever car you buy.
New cars depreciate quickly because they are sold at a discount from the car's list price. They may still have factory warranties, but they lose value fast. Used cars depreciate slowly because they are sold at the prevailing "used" price, which is typically much lower than the new price. Of course, the used car was previously owned by someone else, so it isn't brand-new anymore.
Depreciation can be different by market and differs from car to car. The faster a car loses value, the more you will typically pay in depreciation than insurance, maintenance and fuel costs. As a result, depreciation is the biggest cost of owning a vehicle after just one year. That's why new cars depreciate so quickly.
Used luxury cars are a great option for people interested in buying something that doesn't depreciate quickly. Pre-owned luxury cars tend to lose value at a much slower pace than the average car. This means that you are more likely to get a good deal on a luxury car.
How much are you able to spend? Consider what your budget is and stick to it- if you find a car that seems like it will meet your needs but is outside of what you can afford, then keep looking. You'll get a much better deal on a used car if you wait for the right vehicle rather than settling, so don't rush the process. There are a lot of great used vehicles to get under $15,000, so you should be able to find something that works for your needs.
What type of vehicle do you want? Do you need a family car, sports car, truck or SUV? Are you comfortable with a smaller vehicle or need the extra space of a larger vehicle?
