Step-2: Refer more number of sites that will really sell genuine cars and among them see which sites are having good customer reviews and more ratings. Do it with thorough research and guidance. Few tips that will help to choose the secured sites are, those sites that starts with “https” in the URL, if your browser is a latest version then the address bar or the site owners name will turn in to green color, there should a padlock symbol in the window frame of the browser when you are attempting to log in or register. This all indicates the credibility of the site.

Step-4: Among the sites check for the brand you are looking for.

So, see to it that they are same in all the sites with slight price variations. This will show you the site is really authenticated or not.

See if the sites of the dealer asks for advance payments, if so don’t pay them and better don’t trust those kind of sites.
Step-6: Next ask them for the warranties that they offer and choose the best one even though it is bit costly than the other warranties offered by other sites. Better don’t go with the cheaper ones as they may not be credible. You must also check whether the car really exists that you have seen in the site because some people may cheat you.
Step-7: Once you trust the credibility of the site and the dealer. Purchase the car through safe payment. If it is online payment then you must be very careful as it is a huge amount. You must also tell the car dealer you will make the small payment at first and once you get the car with all the documents, manuals and tool kits what ever the car dealer promised then you will make the full payment.
