5 Tips To Choose A Used Car Dealer

By John Hayden

Of course, owning a car is a necessity, but you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars more for a brand new car when a good quality used car can serve the same purpose. For one, it loses value very quickly  as much as 20% in the first year of ownership! Besides, most new car purchases are dictated by emotions rather than factual information. If you are planning to buy a used car from a dealer, here are a few things to remember while choosing used car dealers.

Check their reputation:

One of the biggest aspects of buying a used car is choosing the right dealers. More often than not, it is because of a few bad dealers the few good ones get a bad rap. Ask for recent testimonials and references from past customers. Yelp and Google reviews are also a good source of information. Friends and family are also a good place to start.

Does the dealer offer inspection:

Reputed used car dealerships always make sure that they are inspected and offer a new-like warranty. This means that you can be sure that the car is in good mechanical condition. For example, at Hayden Agencies, we offer a thorough inspection so that you do not have to worry about your car repairs or other problems.

Does the dealer offer financing options:

Good user car dealerships offer in-housing car deals and financing options. At Hayden Agencies, we offer auto loans for all credit situations, good, bad and zero credit. We also offer cash back offers and run special discounts.

Does the dealer offer trade-in option:

If you are looking to replace your old car, buying from a dealer that offers to take in a trade-in is a good choice. This not only helps you pay for the one you are now buying but also saves you the hassle of trying to sell the existing vehicle.

Does the dealer offer a wide range of options:

The last thing you want to do when buying a used car is to be restricted to choice. Look for dealers offering a wide range of options.
