(NAPSI)—One is the luckiest number when it comes to pre-owned cars—one owner, that is. Many car buyers prefer cars that have previously had only one owner.

Shoppers tend to pay more for these cars because they think they are more reliable and a better value—and they may be right. While cars with multiple owners can be a good deal, one-owner cars generally tend to have better trade-in value.

Either way, when it comes to buying used cars, the more you know, the better decisions you can make. It’s important to find out all you can about the car’s ownership history.

The two easiest ways to do that are to get an inspection and check the Carfax Vehicle History Report. You can also look for the Carfax 1-Owner Vehicle symbol when you shop to help identify cars with only one previous owner.
