Car, Truck, or SUV—Which One Should You Buy From a Used Car Dealer? January 12, 2018

Puyallup, Pierce
Car, Truck, or SUV—Which One Should You Buy From a Used Car Dealer?, Puyallup, Washington

The vehicle-buying process can be quite overwhelming for first-timers. Your initial decision of choosing between a sedan, truck, or SUV is already tough, especially since each has its own set of features to offer. That’s why before going to a used car dealer, you should have an idea of which type of car you want and the benefits that it can afford you.

Consider the following as you shop at a used car dealer:

  • Passengers: Sedans, hatchbacks, and coupes are best suited for individuals and couples who are not yet planning to have children. An SUV is ideal for a family of four to six because it can provide ample passenger and cargo space. Four-seater pickup trucks can also function as a family vehicle, but their main purpose is to transport cargo.

  • Location: Take into account where you live and where you intend to drive. For heavily populated urban areas, a sedan is the better option, as it can easily be maneuvered in tight spaces. If you have to drive long distances for work, you might want to consider SUVs and trucks because they’re sturdier.

  • used car dealerLifestyle: If you’re a single professional who needs a vehicle to shepherd clients around, you’ll need a more attractive ride such as an upscale sedan. Those who enjoy off-road adventures should go for SUVs or trucks because they are built to handle rough terrains. If you have kids, pick something that can offer a lot of space.

  • Driving Style: Your driving capabilities are also important for choosing the right vehicle. Sedans are easier to handle for inexperienced drivers, but keep in mind that larger models are more difficult to control. If you’re not confident in driving a full-size SUV, and you don’t really need one, it’s best to buy a compact or midsize vehicle.
