Buying Private vs. Dealer
Buying privately could save you some money, and as long as the car you buy is in the right condition for its price, you have yourself a bargain. However, this is of course a risk you take. It is your responsibility to check the car's condition and history, and you have far fewer rights if something goes wrong compared to buying from a dealer.
If you decide to buy privately we recommended that you proceed carefully. Even close friends can unintentionally give you incorrect information that could lead to serious problems later.
Buying from a dealer might initially seem more expensive, but in reality it will give you peace of mind, and it could save you a lot in terms of your time, money, and any disappointment you may later have.
