I was thinking of buying a 2 year old car but how can you be sure you are getting a good car. You dont know how a person has treated the car. Even if you get a mechanic to do a thorough check on it before you buy it. And yes I know I could save heaps if i went this option. Prob 10 K. ok, i think i have an idea! Mum said in the next couple of years she needs to upgrade from her hyundai sportswagon. Its an early 2000 model i think. I'll have to ask her. Anyway I know that she has treated the car well. Its in pretty good shape, hasn't done that many k's. I'm thinking I might buy it off her when she decides to buy a new car. This could be a good option. I wonder how much id have to pay for it? Any ideas?
