Buying Used? Three Things to Look For

Buying a used vehicle is a great way to keep more money in your wallet. Most used vehicles have already experienced the highest rate of depreciation or loss in value over their first few years on the road. This means you’re paying closer to the actual value of the vehicle rather than that new car sticker price. This is a great incentive for shopping for a used model, but what else should you look for as you shop?

#1 Thoroughly Inspect It

One of the first things to look at when shopping for a used vehicle is the condition of its exterior and interior. As you walk around the exterior, look for scratches, dents, dings, and signs of rust. These cosmetic issues are often minor but, in some cases, they can point to hidden issues. For example, body panels that aren’t properly aligned indicate a previous accident and poor repair. The same can be said if you find paint overspray under the hood, around the trunk, or on the doors.

Inspecting the interior is also important. You’ll want to make a note of any excessive wear and tear in the upholstery since this can help you negotiate a lower price. Usual wear and tear or strange odors are red flags that the vehicle hasn’t been properly maintained. If the vehicle has a musty smell or unusual stains on the carpet and floor mats, this is a good indicator of water damage or a leak, both of which can be costly to repair at your own expense.

#2 Get Behind the Wheel

Once you’ve inspected the exterior and interior, it’s time to get behind the wheel. This is the best way to gauge how the vehicle performs and if there are any issues with the engine, air conditioner, heater, and other features. Throughout the drive, listen for odd sounds from the engine and test its capability at different speeds. Make sure the brakes are responsive and that there aren’t any dashboard warning lights. Test the air conditioner, heater, radio, cruise control, and every other feature you would typically use when on the road.

#3 Check the Tech

Automotive technology is constantly evolving, which makes shopping for a used vehicle even more enticing since you don’t have to sacrifice the latest features for the sake of saving a few bucks. This makes it even more important to check the vehicle’s technology features and ensure they work properly. This includes everything from the infotainment system, smartphone integration, and navigation system to the safety and driver-assist tools.
