Default Used car dealer recommendation

Anyone has any preferred or good experience with used car dealer to recommend?

Probably "honest" and "reliable".

Thanks in advance!

It's difficult to get a stick to one dealer to buy a used car, isn't it?

In my opinion, it's really difficult to find a 100% honest dealer. And even if you find one, he won't have the car you want. Besides, he may be genuinely honest, but he won't know the full history of the cars he is selling.

A better solution is to bring a car-nut friend with you during all viewings. Or send the selected one or two for STA inspection. This won't guaranteed that you'll get a perfect car, but at least you've done the due processes to weed out the lemons.

Let me know if you need my help. I'm don't have mechanical knowledge but I generally can sense out the more reliable cars thru meticulous inspection, hearing, feeling and a little bit of gut feel.

Bro, thanks for yr offer. will seek yr help if i can spot a reasobable price one.

I asked some of my friends for recommendation and they told me the same thing too. Lol.

Does the lemon law help the buyer? Actually some of the dealers claimed now that they will provide 6mths warranty.

Depending what car u have in mind.

Chassis inspection is easy, mechanical is rather difficult. I say 95% of the used cars out there all have the mileage tampered.
