CHS Student Council ;bt lartaboa ltW things you can do to maximize your chances of satisfaction and mini- mize the likelihood that you'll end up with a lemon. Cars are high- ticket items. When making any major purchase, you should look before you leap. A bit of research up front can save headaches later on. Before you begin looking at used cars, think about what car models and options you want, and how much you are able or willing to spend. Check out you local library - it has books and magazines that compare and con- trast car models, reliability statis- tics, and prices. Libraries also can provide information about safety tests and mileage. Many on-line computer services have discussion forums where people trade infor- mation. When you settle on what you want, shop around. More than one place will offer you the car you want, but the price may vary. Kicking the tires Once you find the car you want, check it out thoroughly. You should consider having a knowledgeable friend or mechanic look over the car before you buy it. Some cities even have "lemon- busting" services that will come out and do a thorough and profes- sional inspection of the auto for a reasonable price. An initial invest- ment of a few dollars can con- ceivably save you from making a mistake worth thousands to you bank account. If the seller refuses to allow you to inspect the vehicle, that's a clear sign that you should walk away from the dealt There are some things you can do on your own. Don't belie everything you read. Investiga- tions by our office in the past have uncovered odometer shops that roll back the mileage of cars and provide "legitimate" certificates of authenticity. So when you look at an automobile, see that everything is consistent with odometer. Are the brake pedals and seat worn and slick? that doesn't gibe with a read- ink of 40,000 miles. Some people say not to buy a car that has had more than one owner. While that may be extreme, you can always ask to see main- tenance records. The very exist- ence of a record ofoil changes and routine repairs may indicate that a car has had good care. If you have problems If something goes wrong with your car and it is covered by a warranty or a service fontract, there are several steps you can take to get service. First, read the war- ranty or contract; the document should have instructions on howto get service. Try to resolve the problem with the salesperson or owner of the dealership. However, ifyou think you are entitled to ser- vice, but the dealer disagrees, you can take other steps. If the warranty is hacked by the manufacturer, contact the local representative of the car company. This local, or zone," representative, has the authority to adjust and make decisions about warranty service and repairs. Thursday, You might also consider using a dispute resolution or- ganization to arbitrate your dis- agreement - if both you and the dealer are willing. Under the terms of many warranties, this may be required before you can sue a dealer or manufacturer. In addition, you may contact our Consumer Protection Division (800-337-3928), which mediates consumer complaints. ffnone of these steps are suc- cessful, consider going to a small claims court, where you can resolve disputes involving amounts of less than $5,000.
