If you’re buying your first used car, you may be wondering how to begin. The following guidelines should help you decide which vehicles will give you the best value for your money:
- Usage: Consider who will be riding in your car and where you'll go. Are you just driving yourself to work and back, or do you have family members who will be riding with you? Once you've narrowed your choice down to the type of vehicle, start making inquiries to get a good idea of the market. The best makes and models depend on the vehicle type. The experts at Affordable Automotive offer excellent advice when it comes to selecting used vehicles, and often have a few on-site available for test drives.
- Mileage: Usually a car with a relatively low mileage will be in better condition, but mileage isn't everything. Use this information, combined with the car’s age and other factors, to tell you how well the vehicle was maintained in the past. Many buyers look for vehicles with fewer than 12,000 miles.
- Budget: Once you've determined the type of vehicle and the mileage range you want, the next thing to consider is the general price range of your target vehicle. If you can, buy the car outright. That way you won’t have payments to make later. If paying outright isn’t an option, consider your financing options. Affordable Automotive accepts all major credit cards, and will work with you to get you in the car you need.
