This book is obviously for used cars, but while you may think it's outdated (1995 and all) it REALLY helped us buy a vehicle.
My husband and I are both non-confrontational and this book helped me know what to expect and reinforced that it was okay to ask for some things.
The salesmen literally went through the very steps the book outlined. Some of the scenarios could have been identical to our dealings with the dealership.
I think we either would have left a lot more money on the table than we needed to, or would have left looking for a less-nice car. I'm so thankful I checked this book out of the library!!

---CAUTION: MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS BOOK ONLY IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A *USED* CAR, AS IT DOES NOT COVER *NEW* CARS!!!---

****IMPORTANT: This book mainly covers buying a used vehicle from "Private Parties", or, in other words, a person selling their own car/truck/SUV/van/etc. directly to a buyer. HOWEVER, this book also decently covers Test Driving, Negotiating, and Inspecting vehicles sold by DEALERSHIPS.
This notice is here ONLY to inform you that, while old, this book is EXTREMELY helpful with how to *properly* inspect and test drive a car. Thanks for reading these two notices!****

**REVIEW**

This book is a very in-depth guide to buying a used car. I particularly like how David J. Buechel (the book's author) details each and every step of buying a used car, and especially how to inspect the exterior & the interior. The information on what to look and listen for during the test drive is something that I never would have thought of, yet it is VITAL to figuring out if the vehicle has any major or minor problems BEFORE you offer a price for the car.
