Buying a used car can often seem like a big gamble with a lot of uncertainties, but it really is not as bad as many people think. Here are some used car misconceptions.

THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW A USED CAR'S HISTORY.
With services like CARFAX® it is easy to learn a lot about any car's history. Just look up the VIN and you can see how many owners it has had, if it has been in any collisions, or if there are any issues with the title or odometer. 
USED CARS DON'T LAST VERY LONG.
Not too long ago, buying a used car really was a crap-shoot. You never knew if the car you got would last for 10 years or fall apart in just two years. Now, however, cars are more reliable than ever. If you buy a well-maintained car that is just a few years old, you can feel confident that it will last for years to come. 
NEW CARS ARE BETTER INVESTMENTS.
Unless you are planning to buy a new car and drive it until it falls apart, used cars are a much better deal. New cars lose about one-third of their value as soon as they are driven off the lot. When you buy used, you can get a lot more car for your money.
