Every time you go in to purchase a new (to you) car, there is always something you wish you could have done better. Over the years, I’ve tried to note all of the screw ups I have made while purchasing vehicles. For example, I so fell in love with a 1983 VW Cabrio, I didn’t even test drive it! I forgot. I knew the car, I had owned a similar one! Why would I drive it? Well.. that was stupid. Please learn from my mistakes. When we get excited about the cars we drive, it seems we often forget some of the basics.
If you have a good “oops” story, feel free to email it in… I’d love to include. Going on the assumption (most likely accurate) that you are a smarter and more reasonable person than I am, I hope something on here is helpful.
Thanks for reading the car buying tips! If you have anything you’ve learned and would like to to contribute to this article, feel free to contact me!
