Robert Appel's The Used Car Believer's System is a proven system for assisting the used car buyer when purchasing a car, and used cars are what Appel believes in. Besides presenting a thirteen-point system of buying a used car, the book offers tips on how to keep your car running well and keep it in good shape by rust prevention and regular maintenance, how to choose a reliable mechanic, how to ensure you do not get "ripped off at the repair shop, and how to do some of your own. As well as telling people how to get the most for their money through preventative maintenance, Appel offers advice on how to get the most amount of money when selling your car.

His humour and wit and straight talk have made Robert Appel the popular guest on numerous open-line radio and television talk shows.

The table of contents and extensive index helps make The Used Car Believer's System a valuable reference to any car owner or any prospective car owner.
