Be confident when you buy a vehicle by following these steps — and reach out for advice when you need it.

You don’t have to rely on what a car seller says. Knowing your options and doing pre-purchase due diligence checks means you’ll be equipped to make smart decisions and steer your own course. If you have any doubts, it’s always okay to walk away.

To get the best deal in the long run:

  • buy the safest and most efficient car you can comfortably afford from a car dealer 
  • understand your rights if there’s a fault with a car you have bought
  • keep your car road worthy and pay off any loans on time.

You also have certain rights when it comes to parking, fuel quality, renting cars and taking taxis.
