A Guide To Purchasing A Pre-Owned Car

by | Jul 20, 2015 | Automobiles

The principal reason why people opt for a pre-owned vehicle rather than a new one is their budget, but this is not the only reason. Modern cars, even if they have been owned and driven by others are designed to run thousands of miles, far more than cars did as little as 30 years ago. Because of this fact car buyers today can purchase a high quality used Subaru in Chicago with plenty of added extras that they may not be able to afford otherwise.

There are people, lots of them, that don’t believe in buying new cars. Everyone is well aware of the amount of money that is lost as a result of depreciation the moment a new vehicle is a mile down the road. Other people see a car as little more than a conveyance to get them from where they are to where they want to be, a car to them is not a status symbol.

The only person that can decide whether to buy a new car or a pre-owned car is the buyer; take time to review all the alternatives before you decide.

What are your needs?

As you begin to think about buying a pre-owned car you must take into account the purpose of the vehicle. If you have a new addition to your family a sedan may no longer be big enough and a minivan might be the ideal purchase. If your job takes you off-road or you enjoy off-road activities then perhaps an SUV is the ideal purchase.

As well as the type of vehicle you should consider the options that are important to you. Your list of “must have” options might be automatic transmission, great gas mileage or fully adjustable seating. Although it may not be an absolute necessity you may want your used Subaru in Chicago to be a specific color or have a great sound system.

What’s your budget?

Many people will buy a pre-owned car outright with cash; this is especially true when the vendor is a private party who does not wish to get involved with financing. If you are buying from a dealer it will not be necessary to purchase the vehicle for cash, most dealers offer financing arrangements on their own account or through lending institutions or in most cases you can arrange to finance your used Subaru in Chicago through your own bank or credit union before you even open discussions with the dealer.
