The CAI Consumer Protection Program has advice for area consumers who want to buy a used car in a private sale. CAI Consumer Protection Director Tom Joy said first of all, a private sale car price may be cheaper because the seller does not have the overhead or warranty requirements that a dealer has. The buyer should always inspect a car carefully before buying it, including the body, tires, suspension, fluid leaks, the interior for rust, holes, and cracks, the oil and exhaust, heater, and air conditioner.

Nancy is currently the Director at the Newburyport Learning Enrichment Center, offering programs and services for at-risk, low income students and families. She currently resides in Newburyport, MA.
