Auto People, What Mistakes Have You Made?

I just totalled my car (insert wailing sound here) and have to get yet another used car. You know what they say, better to learn from others' mistakes, than to make your own.

My question is; if you could turn back the hands of time, what about your car buying experience, would you change?

What mistakes did you make when you were buying your car (past or present) that you wish you could undo?

I'll share mine:

1. I once got a car without getting the manual with it.

2. I once got a car with those silly added warranties (are those ever any good use?) I once got a car without checking the history (silly, i know. Hey, I never said I wasnt silly and impulsive lol)

3. I once got a car with (tan colored) cloth interior (BADDDD IDEA! as much as I despice leather interior, they are so much easier to clean lol)

Please do help by sharing your experiences.

I want to make sure I do it right this time and hopefully, this will be my last used car.

If anyone has any specfic tips for buying volkswagen beetles, please share.

Sorry to hear that your ride was totaled, hope life was not lost.

Good luck dealing with those insurance people, however, i am sure you will be driving around town with a nice rental now.

Good luck with your new purchase
