My mother is going through the process of buying a new car and selling her old one, and all the complications that arise have reminded me just how complicated this process can be! Every time we buy or sell a car, we learn a lot... why not write down those lessons learned and share them in Hub form?
This week, for the sake of my dear mother and all the car buyers / sellers out there, I beseech you to share your tips on:
1. Choosing between purchasing new and old cars
2. Choosing the best way to sell a used car
3. Determine the important factors to compare when choosing between different cars
4. Determining how much you can afford to buy given your current financial status
5. Deciding whether to sell or donate an old car
6. Negotiating with car dealers (or private sellers of used cars)
7. Car sale and purchase etiquette
8. Important paperwork to have ready when buying / selling a car
… and anything else that crops up when one is faced with the daunting task of acquiring and passing on automobiles!
Don’t have a particular Hub in mind? Here are some search-friendly titles to consider using:

Oh, and do you want your WTI Hub to have a shot at becoming a Hub of the Day? Make sure the images are legally used and properly attributed!
Here is my hub...
Purchasing a Car with Bad Credit
http://jillkostow.hubpages.com/hub/Purc … Bad-Credit
Read and commented! You were super quick getting this one out!
Nice job and have to 2nd Denise as you were super quick publishing this one, well done.
Read, commented, voted up and ticked. Great info especially now when Banks are unfairly squeezing everyone globally and they, The Banks, caused most of the problem.
You may have guessed that I'm not keen on Bankers but then again I'm not keen on Politicians either.
As I know a little about cars I'll have a go at info on buying used motors. Coming soon if I can get the fingers to work.
Jill, you're a total speed demon! This is a lovely, succinct, helpful resource- and it's great to see those fab original photos, too!
Very opportune, we are considering selling our present car and upgrading to an SUV. Will be writing a hub soon.
My offering to this title: http://ruchira.hubpages.com/hub/A-Compl … -a-New-Car
Ruchira, you're so good with these WTI Hubs. Nicely done.
Might I recommend tweaking the title so that it's "A Complete Guide to Buying a New Car"?
"To" seems more appropriate than "on". Could be wrong. Just wanted to toss that out there.
This is my new hub "The Complete Guide to Hassle Free Car Buying and Selling "
Waiting for your reviews and feedbacks

Finally finished my hub for this topic...
Keep Your Old Car Or Buy A New One
http://glennstok.hubpages.com/hub/keep- … -a-new-one
Here is my Hub on the topic:
Buy A Newer Car Or Keep Your Old One?
http://caseymel.hubpages.com/hub/Buy-A- … r-Used-One
Great topic! I wrote an article about selling my car and it won Hub of the Day in August. A lot of people are looking for advice on this topic. My hub about selling my car is still one of my top performers. Check it out.
Here is my hub for this week's topic.
http://blond-logic.hubpages.com/hub/whe … -used-cars
Hi Simoney Your highness
and esteemed guests
Back again with a little offering from a little man with a little car knowledge and a little late. You may want 2 pots of coffee for this one:
How to buy your first used car.
or you may want to try this shorter more general one from a while ago:
How to buy your first car.
Well done everyone this week. Lots of great car buying and selling info produced this week.
I took a more "tongue and cheek" approach to the category and did a hub on tips to buying Hot Wheels cars online.
http://noveltreasure.hubpages.com/hub/C … heels-Cars
I just finished my entry on Used Car Buying Tips. That title was already taken surprisingly.
So I changed it to: http://austinstar.hubpages.com/hub/Top- … uying-Tips
Happy Monday, everyone!
The guides you've created rock. Thanks for participating with last week's theme and sharing your car purchasing/selling advice.
Our new theme is developing a good family budget. Stop by the thread and share your tips!
