Do research on each dealer before you go so that you know whether or not they have a good track record with other people who have bought used cars in Calgary. If you are buying from a private party be sure to conduct a car fax report prior to purchasing the automobile. Some dealerships offer great warranties and have mechanics on staff that are knowledgeable and will serve you well while others do not. Buying a car from a “full service” dealer is preferable wherever possible.

Do not worry about offending a used car salesman; they have heard it all twice. If you want a better deal than they offer initially tell them so.

When you are in a bartering situation never be afraid to represent yourself and be outspoken when doing so.
