Buying a Used Car is a Breeze With These Simple Steps

At Community Honda, we want all of our customers to find the perfect used car, so our staff works hard to make this happen. While we know that finding a car that stacks Auto Financeup in terms of price, mileage, and amenities can seem impossible, we encourage Orland Park drivers to take a deep breath, read through our tips on purchasing a used car, and enjoy the newfound simplicity of adding a used car to your personal fleet.

Know What You Want

While this may seem like an obvious suggestion, deciding what you want before you head out to the dealership is an important step. Not only does it help your on-site search, but it can also help you from falling prey to temptation. Staying within a budget is important when you buy a new car and by researching prices and reviews before you swing by for a test drive can help you do just that. Typically, the average car payment should amount to about 20% of your monthly income.

Another decision to make when it comes to purchasing a used car is whether or not you want a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. CPO vehicles receive a thorough inspection before they are released for sale and come with their original manufacturer’s warranty. Another way to rank your available options is to request a vehicle history report. This allows you to learn about the car’s previous life and alerts you to any accidents or other mishaps it has been involved in. If the report is negative, you should move on to another candidate.

The final step in finding the right used car for you is to take it on a test drive. If you drive through rugged terrain on a daily basis, test the vehicle in those conditions to make sure it is the right choice for your lifestyle.
