What to Ask Yourself When Purchasing a Pre-Owned Vehicle

August 29th, 2018 by

Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle gives you unlimited options on what to buy. Not sure what to look for when buying a used car? We can help you determine what your needs and wants in a vehicle are. Endless options await you.

What Am I Looking For?

Determining what you require in a vehicle is the most important part of owning a vehicle. Determine how many seats you’ll need daily, where it will be going, and which extra features you desire before you step into the showroom. This is the time to treat yourself to the car tech you’ve been drooling over.

Fill out our Vehicle Wishlist to determine what your vehicle needs are.

How much can I spend?

What Should I Ask?

You have the advantage when purchasing a vehicle. Here are some things you want to ask about when looking at a used vehicle:

  • CarProof/CarFax
  • Vehicle History
  • Previous Maintenance History
  • Owner History
  • Unique Features

Get Behind the Wheel

Every vehicle drives differently. Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle you are interested in can help you make your decision on which vehicle to go with. Observe how you feel in the driver’s seat, the vehicle’s visibility, and the stereo system. Test everything out that you would normally use on your drive home and see how you feel behind the wheel. If you are comfortable driving, test out how the vehicle brakes, takes sharp turns, and accelerates. Knowing how a vehicle performs is important when deciding on a vehicle.
