Things to Keep in Mind When Buying a Used Car

When buying a used vehicle, it’s important to prepare as much as possible to ensure you get the most out of your budget. Here are some tips to help you get started on your car-buying journey:

  1. Research: Before you start shopping around, research what specific make and model of the car you want, as well as its value, common problems, and similar models from other Brands for alternatives.
  2. Inspect the Car:  Be sure to check all areas of the vehicle thoroughly before making a purchase. Look for signs of wear and tear, like scratches, rust, or dents, and take the vehicle for a full test drive to ensure it runs smoothly. Listen for any usual noises or vibrations coming from the engine area. Check all lights, wipers, and electrical components.
  3. Check the History Report: Check to make sure the vehicle was well maintained with regular maintenance or has been in any accidents.
  4. Work with a Trusted Dealer: When buying any vehicle, you’ll want to work with a trusted dealer like Bob Moore Buick GMC. Not only will you have a wide selection of used GMC and used Buick vehicles, our team can give you the highest level customer service possible, and work with you to find the right fit, no matter your buying situation.
  5. Consider a Certified Pre-owned Vehicle: Certified Pre-owned vehicles are used cars that have undergone more rigorous inspections to receive a warranty, giving you extra peace of mind in your used car.

The Peace of Mind of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

If your biggest concern about purchasing a used vehicle is its quality and condition, then perhaps a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) model may work for you. For a GMC or Buick to be considered a certified pre-owned vehicle, it must meet the following criteria: current within six years, no more than 75,000 miles on the odometer, have a clean title, and pass a vehicle history report. GMC and Buick Certified Pre-Owned vehicles also come with the following warranties: a six-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, free vehicle history report, OnStar services trial, and a Sirius XM 3-month trial subscription.
