There are a number of places to purchase a used auto. Here's a quick rundown: CarMax offers no-haggle pricing and cars that are in good condition, but its prices are a bit higher than you'll find elsewhere. Private-party sellers have lower prices and can be negotiated with more easily, but the burden is on the buyer to get the car inspected. Major dealerships sell certified pre-owned cars that are in excellent condition and backed by factory warranties. This option will appeal to buyers who want to minimize the risks of buying used and are willing to pay extra for it. Independent used-car lots are another alternative but can vary wildly on price and the condition level of their cars.

With the demise of the Regal, Buick is now a premium SUV company. The redesigned 2021 Buick Envision occupies the compact slot in the lineup, and it’s a handsome thing, inside and out. With a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the latest in safety and infotainment systems, and an available luxury Avenir trim level, expect more people to envision themselves in a Buick.
A sibling to the just-launched Land Rover Defender 110, the new Defender 90 is shorter in length, smaller in size, and cheaper in price, but is no less capable when it comes to exploring the great outdoors. Plus, thanks to a front-center jump seat, it carries up to six people. Two turbocharged engines are available, each paired with permanent 4-wheel drive.

A vehicle history report from services such as AutoCheck, Carfax or the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System is worth the money and could help tip the scales in favor of one car over another. Pro tip: Check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.gov) website to see if the vehicle you're considering is under an active safety recall.
Buying a used car is one of the smartest financial decisions you can make. You pay less for the automobile and avoid the depreciation that new-car buyers face the moment the vehicle rolls off the dealer's lot. Buying used has a number of other advantages as well. You will pay less for registration and insurance. Also, the margin for a discount may be greater when you buy a pre-owned automobile. And if you purchase the vehicle from a private party, you will likely get an even better price than you would at a dealership.
CarFax is well known for providing comprehensive vehicle history reports that detail all previous damage and ownership history. It works with over 28,000 dealerships nationwide to sell a variety of used cars. You can sign up for alerts on recalls and necessary maintenance reminders to make sure your car is in tip-top shape. The accompanying mobile app receives strong reviews from users.
To date, Nissan has only shown a prototype of the redesigned Z sports car, which is rumored to carry 400Z nomenclature. That name would be derived from its twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which is expected to make 400 horsepower. In any case, the new Nissan Z blends heritage design cues and a familiar shape with modern performance and technology. And yes, a manual gearbox is planned.

Infiniti is planning to replace its midsize 3-row SUV, the QX60, with a vehicle that looks like this. Dubbed the QX60 Monograph, this SUV shows nearly production-ready design details for the all-new 2022 Infiniti QX60. Expect it to share a platform with the upcoming redesigned Nissan Pathfinder, and perhaps installation of the same turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 found in the Infiniti Q50.
If you are financing the vehicle, it is a good idea to get preapproved for a loan. This way you'll know your purchasing budget and the interest rate for which you qualify. Some lenders won't offer a loan if the vehicle is passed a certain age or if it has too many miles. The limitations will vary by lender. In this case, your next move might be to apply for a personal loan. Just be aware that those interest rates are typically higher than for auto loans.
Volkswagen has rapidly improved its SUV game in recent years, rolling out the Atlas, Atlas Cross Sport, and redesigned Tiguan in the sizes, shapes, and flavors that Americans prefer. Soon, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos joins the roster, a small SUV about the size of a Kia Seltos – and the original Tiguan. Turbocharged power, a roomy interior, and classic VW driving dynamics are hallmarks of the new 2022 Taos. 

Though based on the existing Lexus IS, which debuted for the 2014 model year, you’d need to look closely at the 2021 Lexus IS in order to tell. It’s more obvious on the inside, and the car is basically identical when it comes to powertrains. But Lexus swears it has fine-tuned the ride and handling to make this the most fun-to-drive IS ever. Well, except perhaps for the IS F.
Read Edmunds reviews and best vehicle lists, such as those for best midsize sport-utility vehicles, best sport sedans and best pickups. Then narrow your choices, settling on the vehicle that fits you best, whether that's a minivan or a subcompact. Shopping online is the fastest way to get a great deal, so these steps assume that's what you are doing.
