How to Save Money on a Used Car Audra Lowe: Deals are better than ever when it comes to buying a car. Jeanette Pavini is here with some better ways to save when you’re looking for a used one. Jeanette Pavini: Shopping car auctions is one way to find a great bargain on a used car but as with many car purchases, there are things you can do to lower your risk of buying a lemon. When shopping on auction, check to see if there is a preview date to look at their inventory. If not, arrive early to inspect the cars. You should research the cars you want ahead of time and know what they are worth and what you can afford to pay. For a better way to save, make sure the car has a clean title. The VIN number should match. Beware of problems with the AC or power windows because they’re expensive to fix and high mileage means low value. And if you bid on a car and win, you’ll have to pay a 10% to 20% buyers premium on top of the winning bid. So, keep that in mind. Audra Lowe: Alright, thanks a lot Jeanette. And on Friday, she’s going to tell us why brown bagging it is a better way to save and your waistline.
