CR Expert Advice
What You Need to Know About Buying a Used Car
Focus on Reliability
Narrow your shopping list by targeting models known for reliability, a virtue that becomes more important as a car ages and falls out of warranty.
Know the Value of the Vehicle
Condition, mileage, age, equipment levels, and the region all affect vehicle value. Know the true value of your candidate car, regardless of what the seller is asking.
Be Wary of Costly Add-Ons
Service contracts, glass etching, undercoating, and paint sealants are all unnecessary add-ons to help the dealership maximize its profits. Don't buy them.
Get Your Financing Secured
Go to a bank or credit union and be approved for a loan before you go to the dealership. The dealer may even try to beat their rate.
Visit a Mechanic
Don't let the dealer tell you they've inspected the car for you. Take the vehicle to a qualified mechanic that routinely does automotive diagnostic work.
Skip Extended Car Warranty
Surveys show it is rare that the premium you pay will equal the amount of a paid repair claim down the line—unless you choose a model known to have a troubled reliability history.

About Our Used Car Marketplace

Whether you’re shopping for a new or used car, Consumer Reports knows that marketplace transparency is the key to helping you find the right car at the right price. We are dedicated to bringing to buyers a comprehensive view of their local marketplace as well as transparency around vehicle pricing and condition.

Consumer Reports partners with Cars.com and TrueCar.com to provide car buyers with over 1.5 million local used cars. We partner with CARFAX to provide transparency on the condition and maintenance history of these vehicles.

Consumer Reports collects a fee from Cars.com when users check availability on a specific vehicle. Consumer Reports collects a fee from TrueCar for vehicles purchased from a TrueCar dealer.

100% of the fees we collect goes to support our nonprofit mission. Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with any dealer.
