Used Car Buying Tips for Alexandria Residents

January 18, 2017  

used car buying tips for AlexandriaCarSmart Now has used car buying tips for Alexandria residents and others. Gently used, low mileage cars are often a good deal. They usually have a lower purchase price than new cars, and buyers will pay less sales tax, less insurance and have lower depreciation on their investment. With all of that said, there are some things to look for when buying a new car.

Buy from a reputable car dealer, such as our establishment. Purchases from individuals sometimes seem attractive, but often entail risks. If you do purchase from an individual, take the seller and the title to a notary and get all the paperwork straight before you pay out any cash. (We do all the heavy lifting in that department when you buy from us, as will any good dealership.) Look at its previous ownership and repair history. If the previous owner has kept up with regular maintenance and repairs, it is more likely that the vehicle will be in serviceable shape. If the dealership doesn’t have this service available, you can enter the vin number or other registration information into a free Carfax account and quickly discover the vehicle’s history. Ask about warranties and have your vehicle checked out by an independent repair person – just to double check. We do our best to be honest about a vehicle’s condition, but even our mechanics have been known to miss a thing or two.
