Throughout the Miami Valley and all over Ohio, driving during the winter months poses its own unique challenges since the roads are filled with snow and ice and there is less visibility. Whether you are just dealing with colder weather or have to drive over an area with black ice, be sure to keep the following winter safety tips in mind. They can save you from having an accident and get you to your destination safely.
Don’t Drive When Tired

Many people choose to buy a used car instead of a new one as a way to save money and get the same features or model. While opting for a pre-owned model will typically reduce the amount you pay, you need to be careful and ensure that the vehicle is in good condition. Otherwise, you may end up losing money on the purchase. To protect your investment, always check a few key things before you buy a used car, regardless of the brand or style.
Vehicle History Report
You should always ask to see a copy of the vehicle history report of the used car you are planning on buying. If the seller doesn’t have a copy handy, ask for the VIN and look it up yourself. Although it costs a few dollars to get a detailed report, you can get a basic one for free, and the detailed ones are well worth the money. [...]

With a little bit of research, you can get the best rates possible and start enjoying your car.
Check Your Credit Score
Before applying for financing, you will want to take the time to look at your credit score. While this isn’t completely necessary, it is a very good idea.
