Buying Used Car Tips in Washington DC

October 20, 2017  

used car buying tips in Washington DC

Coasting into the gas station, the woman stared in dismay at the needle on the oil indicator. After waggling wildly, it was lying flat and she had less than fifteen minutes to make it to an important meeting. Pulling out that ubiquitous modern accessory – her cell phone – she quickly called a friend, alerted the station owner that she would be back for the vehicle.

When the vehicle arrived at the repair shop, the mechanic had bad news for her: her vehicle, which had served her faithfully, had driven its last mile. Now, with no vehicle she had to shop for a new one. Enter, a hero to save the day: CarSmart Now with our used car buying tips in Washington DC. Our online shopping tool made all the difference.

The woman in our story not only used our online shopping tool, she made use of some of our shopping tips.

These include:

1.) Look for low mileage.

2.) Ask how many owners this vehicle has had previously – “one” is the best answer.

3.) Request records of past maintenance. Was the previous owner good about oil changes and those other little things?

4.) Shop around for a lender – we make that easy because we maintain contact with hundreds of lenders.

5.) Check the Blue Book value of the vehicle.

6.) Does the vehicle come with any kind of warranty?

7.) How much will the sales tax and insurance cost?

These are just a few of the important questions it is good to ask about your new-to-you ride.

You don’t have to wait for your current vehicle to go its last mile before looking at our inventory of thousands of gently used cars and trucks. Give CarSmart Now a call at (888) 292-8115 to learn more used car buying tips in Washington DC.
