Where to Buy?
There are different pros and cons to buying privately or through the trade. You normally pay more through the trade, but you can also buy a warranty to give you peace of mind. Private sellers are not always the cheapest option, though, as many sellers overprice their cars. You generally have no legal comeback with a private seller if the car goes wrong, so it's best to get the car checked over by a professional first. You may be able to sue the seller if they deliberately mislead you, but this could prove costly.
