The Director of Consumer Affairs for Bucks County says, it’s important to know what you want before you step on the lot. Mike Bannon was on the WNPV’s AM-Edition Tuesday Morning.
“You should never walk on a lot unsure of what you want. It gives you less control of the buying process. So try to get a good idea of what you want and do your homework. You can find helpful information from CARPRICE.COM and you can find information at the library from Kelly Blue Book.”
Bannon says, Pennsylvania does not have a lemon law for used cars. For information from the Bucks County Department of Consumer Affairs on buying a car call 1-800-942-2669 or visit BUCKSCOUNTY.ORG
