FAQ You Should Ask While Shopping for a Used Car

Can I See the Vehicle History Report?

How well was this car cared for in the past? With a vehicle history report from CARFAX® or another third party, you’ll be able to see the car’s maintenance and accident history, which are important considerations when buying used.

Has the Dealership Serviced the Car?

used carsIt’s always helpful to know if the dealer has taken care of any repairs or routine maintenance since acquiring the vehicle. The more the dealer has done, the less you’ll have to worry about in the months ahead.

What Discounts Are Available?

While used cars are significantly less expensive than buying new, this doesn’t mean you can’t find more ways to save. Many dealerships offer discounts if you pay in cash or use their financing options. Be sure to ask so you don’t miss out on something that could cut the price.

Can I Trade in My Old Car?

Quite often, families buy used cars as an upgrade from another vehicle that they’ve outgrown. Don’t be afraid to ask about the dealership’s trade-in policy as it will only further lower your purchasing price and will help you avoid the hassle of selling your car yourself.
