3 Aspects to Consider When Buying a Used Car , Union, Ohio

Buying a used car is the best way to get the make and model you want, without the price tag of a new car. Many people that are new to car shopping think you should always buy new rather than used, but that is not the case. You don’t have to be a car expert to make sure you’re getting an excellent deal on a reliable used car if you pay close attention to three main factors.

3 Factors to Check in Used Cars

1. Mileage

No set number of miles determine if a used car is a sound purchase or not. The long-held belief that 100,000 miles are the deciding factor on a car’s worth is outdated. Cars today boast more sophisticated components and technology, and can easily surpass 100,000 miles with proper maintenance. Instead of a set number, look at how often each car’s previous owner drove them. Remember that, on average, a person drives their car about 13,000 miles per year. Compare the year of the vehicle to miles on the odometer. If the car has more than the average number of miles, it doesn’t mean that it’s a no-go. You can still get this car but scrutinize it beforehand.

2. History

Technology has made the world ofUsed Car used car buying more accessible than ever. Every car has its personal history tied to its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If you’re interested in a new car and you’d like to know more about it, paid services such as CARFAX® will tell you the car’s record. Accidents, liens, and recalls will all show up in a history report. 

3. Test Drive

Not only are test drives a fantastic way to see how the car feels, but it will also offer crucial insight into anything wrong. Listen carefully for any sounds you aren’t sure of and make a note. Drive the car on different types of roads to see how it accelerates on the freeway versus traffic on city streets. Make a note of vibrations, shaking, and ease of steering, and brake responsiveness. Address any concerns before considering a purchase.
