3 Great Tips for First Time Used Vehicle Buyers

Tips for First Time Used Vehicles Buyers

Purchasing a new or used vehicle can be a difficult thing for first time buyers, especially if they’re not knowledgeable on the process. It’s also very important to make sure that you get the best deal possible as well as a vehicle that will last you! To help with all these things, we at Heritage Ford have created a small list of tips we recommend you employ when shopping for a used vehicle! Continue reading to see what we’ve prepared!

1. Ask About Fees and Taxes

When you’re making a used vehicle purchase you might be tight on budget. And whether you’re purchasing from and individual or from a dealership like ours you need to make sure you’ve set aside a bit for all the necessary costs. These include sales tax, registration, documentation fees, and more. Never be afraid to ask for the fee breakdown so that you won’t be caught off guard!

2. Make Sure you Test Drive

Nearly 20% of all used vehicle buyers don’t take their purchase for a test drive before they buy, and that’s not a good idea! You need to make sure the vehicle suits you, after all, and that it has everything you’re expecting. This includes space for car seats, comfort features, how the gas and brake pedal feel, and more! Always ask to test drive before buying.

3. Get the Vehicle History Report

Another key detail of a vehicle purchase, especially for a used vehicle, is the vehicle history report. Always make sure you get this, either from the dealership or from a third-party source like CARFAX or AutoCheck. We recommend getting it from a third part using the vehicle identification number or VIN. If the dealer seems to be a little hesitant about providing this, take your business elsewhere! That’s a red flag. These three tips are just some of the steps we recommend you take when you’re out shopping for a great used vehicle. There are many more that we can offer!
