A Guide to Buying Used Cars

Ask for a Report

Even when used cars look like they’re in pristine shape, it’s necessary to trace their history. When you consult a CarFax report, you’ll be able to learn a lot of important information that may not be visible. In addition to mileage and other data, you’ll learn if the car has been in serious accidents and how often it needed to be repaired. When your choice has a relatively clean bill of health, you’ll know it’s okay for purchase. 

Take a Lengthy Test Drive

Don’t just go around the block — ask the salesman if you can try it out for a half day or so to really get the hang of it. That way, any issues the vehicle may have will have time to present themselves. 

Seek Out the Pre-Certification Inspection Form

It’s common for used car dealerships to do a thorough inspection of each vehicle before they greenlight it for sale. By perusing that paperwork, you’ll be able to learn if your vehicle has any weaknesses or vulnerabilities. If the mechanic only needed to make minor tweaks, you’ll know the car is in good condition.
