Pick a Car, Any Car!

The first step is to think carefully about what you need and want from you vehicle. Do you need seating for six? Front-wheel drive? Four-wheel drive? Also consider your budget (including extras like insurance and fuel). Once you've asked these questions, you should have narrowed down your choices to a few different vehicles that suit your needs.

Research, Research, Research!

This is perhaps the most crucial step, as this will determine what vehicles you go see, what price you'll ask for, and what questions you'll ask the previous owner. Research each potential vehicle for items like known defects, owner's reviews, and how much average asking prices are. At this point you should have a much better understanding of the vehicles you're interested in.
