I bought a second-hand automobile in my local auto market one year ago. It is more cheap than the new one, it only cost 1/4 price, compared new car. I was satisfied for this trading. I thought I got a bargain. But after that day, I found I usually spent money to repair it. What is worse, it seems that the repairment is unlimited. Until now, I find the money I invest in the old one can but a new one. I am disppointed to this.

Years ago I also bought a used car for a very handsome price. I was really satisfied but after a year of using it, the car started behaving strangely so I went to see an expert mechanic for advice. His advice was for me to sell it before it gets worse and fetch a very low resale value. Buying used cars is sometimes good provided you have it checked by a qualified and experienced technician before buying it. And also, since it's very likely that a trouble may occur, it would be good if you know someone who is very good with cars or better yet you yourself are a good mechanic. Other than than, it's a lot wiser to buy a new one under an attractive plan if you haven't got the cash.

Your advice " see it before it gets worse and fetch a very low resale value" seems fit to me. I have no experience to bue the second-hand one.
