Questions to Consider Before Buying a Used Car

January 22nd, 2021 by

Buying a used vehicle from our St. Charles auto dealers means you’re getting a great car at an even better price. Used cars offer consumers an opportunity to purchase a quality, long-lasting vehicle at a fraction of a cost of a new car. But before you pull the trigger on just any used vehicle, you’ll want to do your research.

Consider the following questions to help you decide if the used car you’re considering is worth the purchase.

How Many Accidents Has It Been In?

The vehicle’s accident report represents how many crashes it has previously been in. This is helpful in determining the type of shape that the used car is in. If possible, you’ll want to understand how many accidents the car was in and what measures were taken to fix any damage.

Was the Car Serviced Regularly?

Ensuring that the used vehicle still received regular service from our St. Charles auto dealer is essential. If service was often skipped, it’s best to consider another option. The last thing you want is to invest money in a car that doesn’t have a ton of life left.

How Did the Test Drive Feel?

There’s nothing more important than test driving your car to make sure that you enjoy the way that it drives. It may sound silly, but just because a car checks all of your boxes on paper doesn’t mean it will suit your needs when you test drive it. Ask our team as many questions as you wish during the test drive, and we are always happy to provide you with additional information!
