What do you least like about buying a new or used car?

There's a lot of factors involved when buying a car, a survey done by consumer reports show what people least like about the whole process.

Here's what I least like about buying a car.

- Not knowing if you got a good price
- Researching
- Concern for Reliability


Quote:
Consumers are clear on the two things they least like about buying a new car: the cost (30 percent) and the dealership experience (22 percent). In a recent survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, adult car owners said by a large margin that these are the two greatest turnoffs.

The survey is based on 1,764 random, nationwide telephone interviews of adult car owners, exploring attitudes and trends related to car buying.

Cost of the car: 30
Dealership experience: 22
Financing: 6
Trading in or selling old car: 5
Not knowing if you got a good price: 5
Making the final choice: 4
Researching: 3

Concern for reliability: 1


When it comes to used cars, consumers are most concerned about reliability (24 percent), with dealership experience (11 percent) ranked second, despite that many used cars are bought privately.

Used cars are attractive purchases since the original owner suffered the steep, initial depreciation hit. However, there is greater risk when buying used, and there are valid concerns about how a vehicle has been treated and how it will hold up. Buying a car with a track record for above-average reliability and having it inspected by an independent mechanic can go a long way toward ensuring a relatively trouble-free ownership experience.

Browsing ads or classifieds: 2

I much prefer buying a used car, its cheaper, you get a way better deal, and if you know what your buying,and don't get fooled , its best to find a great deal! on used cars as new cars deprecate way too quickly!
