Pre-Owned Car Advice

Here are a few of our top tips for buying a pre-owned car:

  1. Be sure to test drive every potential vehicle you’re considering. A vehicle may seem like a good fit on paper, but you won’t truly know until you’re behind the wheel.
  2. Always thoroughly investigate the vehicle’s history before making any serious moves toward buying the vehicle. You can use resources like CARFAX® and AutoCheck®  to do this, or you can also ask the dealership when you’re buying your next pre-owned car.
  3. Crosscheck the price of any pre-owned model you’re considering with resources like Kelley Blue Book®  and Kelley Black Book®. These will help you make sure you’re getting the best deal possible.
  4. Make sure you’re looking at options within your budget. Keep in mind: You shouldn’t be paying more than 20 percent of your monthly take-home pay on monthly car payments.
  5. Get the full scoop on the warranty coverage that comes with the vehicle. If it doesn’t come with any coverage, consider your options before driving off the lot.
