BUYING A USED CAR: CHOOSING YOUR USED CAR
Buying a used car can have a huge number of benefits, but it is important to make sure that you take your time, rather than rushing into a deal. At franchised dealerships like CCR Motor Co, every used car undergoes a series of stringent tests to ensure that it is of the highest quality, so you know that your car of choice is in great condition, and you still save money. To help you find the perfect new used car, we’ve compiled a three-stage process to ensure that you buy wisely.
The first step is to choose the right car. Before visiting a dealership make sure that you’ve considered exactly what you want from your new vehicle. You should think about what you will be using the car for – do you need space for the entire family, or are you looking for a reliable and economical executive vehicle?
You’ll also need to think about your budget. Take into account the car’s upfront cost, but also consider its likely fuel costs, the amount of road tax you will be paying, and the car insurance group that the vehicle fits into.
Once you’ve chosen your ideal car, or have identified a vehicle class and a shortlist of potential models, be sure to conduct the necessary research online. Find out all about your chosen model(s), so that you know what to expect when considering the used vehicles at a dealership, or conducting a test drive.
Having decided upon the right car, you should also research potential dealerships. To find out about local dealerships it is worthwhile asking local friends and family for recommendations as well as looking online – you should be able to find plenty of feedback from customers to give you a good idea about a particular dealer, and to help you to make a decision. Try looking up CCR Motor Co – as a franchised dealer for Mitsubishi used cars, our excellent online reputation speaks for itself.
The importance of taking the time to research and choose the right used car for you, and the right dealership, cannot be overstated. For further information on buying a used car, please visit the next page of our three-stage guide.
