Complete Guide: How to Buy a Used Car

  Complete Guide: How to Buy a Used Car ​The single easiest way to save money when buying a car is to purchase a used model instead of a new vehicle. When you buy a new car, the second you leave the dealer's lot, it starts to rapidly depreciate, losing a significant amount of its value in the first few years of ownership. When you buy a used car, the original owner absorbs the pain of its steep depreciation during its early years. You pay far less than you would have if you had purchased the car new. There may be more maintenance required on a used car that's out of warranty, and its financing may be a bit more expensive.

SINGAPORE - In Singapore’s worst cyber attack , hackers have stolen the personal particulars of 1.5 million patients.
