When the time comes to close the used-car sale, there are a few important items to take care of. Have the seller get a smog test for the car if your state requires one. Check the registration to ensure it is current. Make sure the seller gives you the title (also called a "pink slip"). If the owner still owes money on the vehicle, you may have to contact his or her bank or credit union to complete the transfer of ownership. Some states require the seller and buyer to complete a bill of sale. This document is good to have in case you are pulled over and haven't yet registered the vehicle. To prevent any hassles like that in the first place, go to the Department of Motor Vehicles as soon as possible to register the vehicle in your name and pay any appropriate taxes.

Let's take a closer look at each of these aids to easier used-car shopping.

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.


Most private sellers aren't as experienced in negotiating as dealers, nor do they want to negotiate as car dealerships do. Use this to your advantage and make a fair but aggressive offer. If the seller turns it down, be persistent and counter with a slightly higher amount. Remember, it might be OK to spend a little more than you'd hoped if you found the perfect used car.
Infiniti hopes the new 2022 QX55 will remind people of the original FX35, but there isn’t much tying the two models together aside from a fastback roofline and the automaker’s endless highway logo. The QX55 is basically a QX50 with less interior room, Infiniti applying the same recipe to its compact crossover that BMW and Mercedes-Benz do to theirs (and now Audi, too). As is true of other SUV “coupes,” you’ll pay more for less with the Infiniti QX55.

What is a new car model? New car models wear nameplates that either didn’t exist before or are resurrected from the past. Examples among 2021 model-year vehicles include the Kia Seltos, a new nameplate, and the Ford Bronco, a resurrected nameplate. Sometimes, a new model is based on an existing vehicle but has a dramatically different mission, such as the new Ram 1500 TRX or the Volvo XC40 Recharge P8.

The next thing to do is get an idea of maintenance costs on any car you're considering. Proper maintenance is especially important on a used car since it may not have a warranty to protect it if anything breaks down. People buy used vehicles as a way to save money but often overlook the cost of maintenance, which might end up pushing them beyond the limits of their budget. The car's owner's manual, which is often available online, will tell you what you need to know about maintenance services and intervals. A phone call to a dealership service department or a trusted independent repair shop will get you pricing information. You also can check resources such as RepairPal.
Long rumored but never delivered, a V-8 engine finally returns to Jeep’s legendary off-roader. Based on the Wrangler Unlimited, the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 gets extensive engineering modifications to accommodate a 6.4-liter V-8 making 475 horsepower. It comes only in off-road-ready Rubicon trim, and with a healthy load of standard equipment. According to Jeep, quantities will be limited.
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.
In 2022, Volkswagen is discontinuing the Golf for the U.S. market, leaving only the Golf GTI and the more powerful Golf R available to American driving enthusiasts.

There's a big safety benefit to buying the newest car you can afford. When you buy a new car, you're ensuring you're getting a car that's up to the most recent safety standards in both crash testing and in safety technology. A new car compared to a used car from even five years ago can have big safety advantages with things like more airbags, a more rigid construction, and more advanced technology like a backup camera which is now mandatory on every new car sold in the U.S.
