Basically the same procedure each time I buy a car, regardless of make:
-Do the research (internet, publications, etc.) on the make(s)/model(s) I'm considering. Don't rush this process.
-Check out actual car(s) in person
-As pointed out, arrange for PPI from dependable source if used purchase. My experience is 90% new car purchases.
-Test Drive. I sometimes start over after this step.
-Arrive at agreed upon price (this can take days of playing chess)
-Either walk away or plunk down the money and drive away
I've purchased over 31 cars of all kinds (ones that I can remember) for myself and my family during a period of over 50 years, and I've rarely had any regrets about the decisions I've made.
When out on the road, it's always best to watch out for Pot holes, Sink holes, and those other Holes!
