What You May Not Know About Used Cars

1. Pre-Owned Certified Vehicles Offer More Than Extended Warranties

Many people assume purchasing a pre-owned vehicle offers an extended warranty and that’s it. Purchasing certified pre-owned cars provides much more than longer warranties, as these vehicles have also been meticulously inspected and repaired to meet their manufacturers’ standards. Warranties have the support of the manufacturers, so you can trust you are purchasing a quality car.

2. Most Vehicle Transactions Involve Used Cars

used carsSurprisingly, most vehicle transactions involve used cars. Pre-owned cars and trucks not only provide the benefits mentioned above, they are not subject to sales tax. Washington and numerous other states require used vehicle buyers to pay “use tax”; however, this tax is rarely as high as sales tax.

3. Flood-Damaged Vehicles Still Get Sold

About half of vehicles in floods are dried out and resold. They present serious maintenance and safety issues because these vehicles frequently sustain serious undercarriage rust. Additionally, previously-submerged airbags do not function properly and may not work in the event of an accident. Purchasing a pre-owned car from a reputable dealer such as Pac Ave Auto Sales is strongly recommended to avoid the flooded vehicle issue.
