This project has been put together to show the cost of buying and using a used car for one year. To show the different costs for cars I have made a chart on a later page. First, though, It probably would be good to tell a little about used cars.
Used cars are, for some, a good investment. The used car is good for cheap transportation, and fun. Used cars also have many different uses besides just driving around. Some people buy used cars so they can restore them, while other people buy used cars for their children to drive. While still others get used cars for spare parts. The point is that used cars are good for many different people, for many different reasons.
Some people like to own new cars and so they get rid of their old cars to make room for the new car. This proves very useful for the person that cannot afford a new car.
Unfortunately, the used car is rarely in perfect condition, and can sometimes require some minor repair. Of course, one can't expect to find a great used car that does not cost more then a car in worse condition, but this is to be expected.
When one goes to buy a used car they should look for some key things, before buying the car:
1. Check the car's interior thoroughly. Was the car kept clean all this time or was it neglected? Is it up to what would be par?
2. Get an unbiased mechanic to look at the engine and look over the entire car. Do they think that it is in good driving condition? Do you think it is in good driving condition?
3. Look at the car's paint job. Is it what you would want? are there...
