    I just got a new-to-me car and I think the check list for everyone is different, but think of features in your current car that you like or dislike.

    For me, it had to have the outside keypad (only Ford's have this) and room for a carseat and my dog. I also wanted the hands-free calling feature.

    I would do an insurance quote (even if you just have year/make/model you can get a ballpark) to make sure it isn't going to be a crazy difference. There's some cars that can be really expensive to insure for whatever reason ... older model harder to find parts for, more likely to be stolen, etc. etc.

    All the things mentioned above are excellent. Also be sure to check to see if it has been in a flood. Those are bad news also.

    Yes! My insurance actually went down with a newer vehicle, which shocked me!

    Good one!! It will work seriously if the mechanic honestly inspect the car for you.

    Um, you are bumping some old threads, to not really add anything to the conversation. It's a bit odd.
