It is Important that you buy a second hand car for yourself so that you can check it out by yourself. Never send someone else to buy a second hand car for you or you may be sorry when the person brings a tow truck along with the car he or she picked up for you. If you are a ‘green’ advocate, you won’t run out of green cars that are second hand in nature. Green second hand cars are often sold at cheaper rates than other types of cars. A second hand green car is much cheaper than a brand new green car. Used cars auctions are among the best place to get a car cheaply. You can bid for a used car for as low as a hundred dollars at a used car auction. Not all auctions sell good cars, so you have got to be on the alert. Do not buy a used car that is older than five years because there will be a high risk that it will not last long. Cars that are less than 5 years are often safer to buy because they tend to have a few years ahead of them. The mileage of a used car should not be more than 60,000 miles, if you are to enjoy it well.
