What to look for in a used car

Before buying a used car, there is a number of considerations to keep in mind even after you research the make and model of the vehicle. Use your Home Loan Investment Bank auto financing to purchase a car that will take you anywhere you need to go in style.
Here are three things to consider as you examine a vehicle:
1. The condition. While cosmetics are not the primary concern of a vehicle, they are important. Dings, dents or a dirty interior may indicate the previous owner of the auto failed to maintain or was hard on the vehicle.
2. Vibrations or unsteady movement. Driving a used car is a crucial examination process. Not only will driving the auto allow you to determine if the car "fits" you and is comfortable, but also if there is anything wrong. Put a car through its paces by braking suddenly, taking sharp turns and traveling at different speeds.
3. Repair history. Use a car history report and your own examination of a car to identify any areas of damage or repair in the past.
