Thursday, 03 August, 2017 |Maguire Automotive
Consider these few stop-offs on a veritable map of helpful advice, both from our Glenolden, PA pre-owned car dealer and from the research experts at Autotrader.
If you're one of our Aldan neighbors in search of a pre-owned vehicle at a conscientious balance of high quality, practicality, and an affordable bottom line, you're probably already faced with possibilities that seem as endless as they are diverse. Luckily, when it comes to used cars, that's actually a good thing.
When you go pre-owned, there's no set manufacturer standard on pre-established pricing. Value can present at a sales tag much lower than that of new, even for a highly comparable model year, because the costs of ownership, like initial, insurance, maintenance and depreciation, drop by nature. Plus, the selection on the pre-owned car market's often much larger than new, and that means choices abound.
Confused yet? Don't be. Once you've spelled out your needs and you've done your research, a test drive in that fuel-efficient, distance-going Chevrolet Malibu, Ford F-150 hauling champ, or off-road-traveler Hyundai Santa Fe is a matter of course. Take a few pointers from our Glenolden car, truck, and SUV aficionados, and take your search process off without a hitch.
- Define your needs, preferences, and tastes, and then explore your vehicle options. What are you looking for in a vehicle as pertains staples like passenger capacity, storage space, fuel economy, safety features, and so on. The kind of body style you're looking for, from compact coupe to space-efficient sedan and hatchback to more capacious full-size SUV or truck, may even come naturally.
- Visit websites like Autotrader.com and KBB.com to research makes and models. These websites are among the experts in auto research and valuation, containing not only ample vehicle model info, consumer and expert reviews, and vehicle value specs, but also side-by-side model comparison. They're excellent for creating a portfolio of details on several models at once.
- When your vehicle info's ready, set yourself a budget and put it all together in a file. Visiting our Glenolden pre-owned car dealer's inevitable, and it's a good idea to come prepared. Know your prospect's 17-character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and be sure to get a Vehicle History Report from CARFAX. Bring a copy of your credit report (if you're planning to acquire an affordable car loan or flexible lease here at our finance center).
- What's more, keep on hand any loan pre-approval information you've acquired. The same goes for any price, insurance and extended warranty quotes as well as trade pricing info if you plan to make one. Take along a notebook, too: dealer vehicle inspections and test-drive experiences will provide the most direct feedback you're looking for during your exploration.
