Lori Posted April 26, 2021 Share Posted April 26, 2021 It is looking like we have found the next roof over our head. Should be confirmed within the next 48 hours.So, if all goes as planned, we will need to buy a car. When we lived down South, we bought a new car, so that was pretty clear cut. Simple process, no issues. We sold it when we left and that was also fairly clear cut with no problems.This go round, we would rather not pay the price of a new car, so we're looking at used cars. It seems a bit safer to go with one of the larger car dealers as they offer one year guarantees (limited, I'm sure, but still) on most of their 'newer' used cars.We're looking at vehicles that are one to two years old. Probably a Renault as that is what we had before and we were happy with it.So, how does the process work here? Can you make an offer that is less than the dealer's asking price? This is common place in the U.S., but I don't know about here. I've read on here that payment can be made by wire transfer from our bank to the concessionnaire. I presume cheques for the amount of a car are not accepted, though I have no idea. I know cash cannot be used as the amount is over the legal limit for a cash purchase.So, can anyone offer us any tips for buying a used car?Thank you !
