Today, many people search for used cars online and there are many good websites out there offering you great deals. Many used car search engines like AutoTrader, Motors.co.uk mainly feature cars from dealers, which may not always be the best deals. Buying a used car from a dealer may not be the cheapest, but listed used cars usually have a warranty period, which can be very useful, especially when buying an older car.
Alternatively, there are a number of websites that sell exclusively online and therefore don't have high overhead costs – they can offer very affordable and cheaper used cars than you would get from a franchise dealer for the same make/model.
Buying a car privately is considered the cheapest way, as you can negotiate directly with the car owner, excluding intermediaries. However, it's not without risk, so it's important to know what you're seeing (or ask someone to do it) and make sure you've done your homework and have all your paperwork. It may be helpful to get an HPI check to give you peace of mind that the car was not stolen or has outstanding funds.
Make sure you can afford a car, see what financing you need, and make sure you consider things like insurance, taxes, and maintenance costs. There's no point in buying a car if you don't have money for gas. Used cars tend to have higher value retention, so depreciating your car isn't that much of an issue when you're reselling your car.
Contact a reputable used car dealer that has a variety of makes and years of manufacture. Make sure you are registered as a member of a professional association such as RMI or SMMT.
Make a list of the features you will need. You have a large family and need space for a stroller, drive more highways, and travel long distances. The type of fuel you use matters, gasoline is better for city trips, and there are many more eco-friendly options on the market too.
