    when

    I wonder if there is any difference between 3 sentences.
    1. When you buy a used car, you should check several things.
    2. When buying a used car, you should check several things.
    3. When you are buying a used car, you should check several things.

    No, except perhaps a slight but insignificant difference that in #'s 2&3 the "checking" should be done at the moment/time of purchase. In any case the difference among the three would be unnoticeable by the listener/reader and the statements would typically be considered a general caution to a buyer.

    Please make your thread titles more helpful. You're not limited to a single word.

    When you buy a used car would have been good for this topic.
