What to Look for in a Used Vehicle
Step 1 – Make a List
Think hard about what you really need from a vehicle; good fuel economy? Plenty of space? All-weather traction? Considering what you need, do some research and find vehicles that meet your needs. This way you can spend your time of vehicle you know you actually want, and it will make it easier to shop around.
Step 2 – Go For A Test Drive
Once you’ve narrowed down the possibilities, it’s time for a test drive! While driving the vehicle, imagine yourself using it everyday – does that excite you? Will it work for your needs? Also consider the vehicle itself – does it have unusual squeaks or rattles? Is the engine smooth? Does the transmission shift cleanly?
Step 3 – Inspection
If you’ve found a vehicle that piques your interest, the next step is to carefully inspect it for damage or problems. Do all the lights work? Are there rust spots? Is the body dented and bent? How much tread is left on the tires? All used vehicles will have their minor problems, but does yours have any deal-breakers?
Step 4 – Run a CarProof
A CarProof is an online tool which searches a vehicle’s history to tell you where it’s been registered, and if it’s ever been in an accident. This is extremely important for your peace-of-mind, which is why Great West Chrysler provides a free CarProof report on every used vehicle it sells!
Step 5 – Let’s Make a Deal!
The last step, assuming you still like what you see, it’s to make an offer on the vehicle! Most private owners ask much more than what the vehicle’s really worth in order to make more money. Here at Great West Chrysler we keep our prices as low as possible in order to give you the best deal possible!
