Follow these tips to protect yourself:
Before you buy a new or used car, do some research to determine which car is right for you and what you can afford.
Check the vehicle's safety rating.
Search for a licensed car dealer.
Conduct a quick Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) search. A PPSR search checks for financial interests, written off records and stolen vehicles.
Report unlicensed motor vehicle dealing in the community to firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 304 054.
