Ask These Five Questions When Buying a Used Car

There are many benefits to buying a used car, truck, or SUV. Here are a few questions you’ll want to ask when exploring used vehicle options

1. What is the Accident History?

A small accident might mean nothing at all, but it’s important to know about any damage that might have occurred, so you can adjust your budget for potential repairs down the line.

2. How Many Miles Does it Have?

Modern vehicles last a long time, but mileage can indicate repair and replacement needs. It’s important to look at the mileage to make sure the vehicle is a fair price and that it will be reliable for as long as you need it.

3. How Many Owners Did it Have?

The fewer owners a vehicle has had, the easier it is to trace the service history. That means you’ll have a better sense of your cars needs and what they might cost

4. Was It Serviced Regularly?

Regular service can help to make a vehicle safer and more reliable and reduce the need for costly repairs.

5. What Needs to Be Fixed Today?

If there are many immediate repair or replacement needs, you’ll need to factor them into your budget, so it’s important to determine if any service has to be done right away.
