Vehicle Title Search
Used Car Lemon? No Way!
While buying a new car is expensive, the consumer is protected by a warranty. In the event that something goes wrong with the vehicle, the owner can have the problem resolved without worrying about the associated repair costs. Buying a used car, on the other hand, carries an inherent risk. There’s usually no warranty that offers comprehensive protection to the buyer. Plus, many sellers are less than forthcoming about problems that their cars are suffering from. That increases the likelihood of a buyer ending up with a used car lemon.
Fortunately, savvy shoppers can identify cars that suggest expensive repairs in the future. Today, I’ll describe how to take preventative measures to make sure you don’t buy a used car lemon.
Vehicle Title Search
Whether you’re buying from a private party or a dealership, you should invest in a vehicle title search. Again, you can’t necessarily trust what you’re being told by the seller. A title search eliminates much of the uncertainty. It’ll help you identify an odometer that has been tampered with (i.e. rolled back). Accidents and flooding will likely show up, too. What’s more, the title search will detail the number of owners and the history of the car. If the used car has had several owners, that’s a warning sign that the vehicle may be a lemon.

Hi, I am suggesting the Jacksonville>For Sale>Recreational Vehicles category be appropriately divided into the 3 main uses it currently attracts.
I have counted as many as 51 Dealer ads for 1 Dealer on 1 day; and, about 10 Dealers all post their ads daily. They seem to remove many of them from the previous days listings and repost to the current day. Out of state and o...ind what he seeks. It is hard to search 8 screenfulls of Titles without having to immediately back out of a lot of the commercial stuff. Quite surprised at the number of non-local Private ads.
I hear recreational people wishing this would happen; but, mostly we are pretty docile and I suspect not many approach you. What do you think?
Thanks for your consideration,
I just renewed my driver's license-I waited so2007-07-26 08:33:40 by Ukrainianfreak
Long-they thought I never had one and performed an international search. I also just got insurance for the first time since the 90's and a title for my vehicle. Had to take off the old tags from the garage (one of six sets) due to the officer's stopping me last Thursday. I guess I have to buy in to the system.
