What To Look For When Buying a Used Car

The advantages of opting for a pre-owned vehicle are undeniable. They often come in at a lower price tag than newer vehicles and offer plenty of other benefits. However, there are some nuances involved with purchasing a used vehicle that you should be aware of. Let’s take a look at what to look for when you’re buying a pre-owned vehicle for your Queen Creek drives:

  • Don’t Overspend: It can be tempting to opt for a shiny pre-owned vehicle. However, only do so if it’s part of your budget. Consider the cost of the vehicle, registration fees, and even insurance when you’re looking for a pre-owned vehicle.
  • Read Reviews: From real-world reviews to reviews from industry experts, it’s a good idea to read a plethora of reviews to ensure the vehicle you’re getting is a good fit for your Tempe lifestyle.
  • Test Drive: If possible, take a test drive on the vehicles you’re interested in. This can give you a good idea if they offer a driving experience that you enjoy.
  • Explore Financing Options: Keep in mind that much like financing a new vehicle, you’ll want to explore different financing options to find the right one for your budget. Our finance team works with a variety of lenders to ensure that you’re getting the best financing rates and terms.

What To Ask When Buying a Used Car – Common Questions

Once you’ve found the perfect vehicle that you think checks off all of your boxes, there are some questions you can ask to help you determine if the vehicle you’re getting is truly the right one. Some of these questions include:

  • What’s The Maintenance History? – Asking about the maintenance history can let you know if the vehicle has been well taken care of.
  • Where Was This Vehicle Owned? – Vehicle’s in colder and wet climates can see more wear and tear than vehicles in warmer and dryer climates.
  • Can I Take The Vehicle To a Mechanic For an Inspection? – If there’s nothing wrong with the vehicle, you should be able to take it to a mechanic for a thorough inspection.
  • Is There a Warranty? – If a vehicle doesn’t have a warranty, keep that in mind when factoring the vehicle into your budget
