Buying a used car requires careful thought, research, and thorough inspection of cars on a dealership’s lot. There are a few things to always check when at a luxury used car dealership to ensure you purchase a vehicle that delivers the luxury driving experience.
- Obtain a CARFAX Vehicle History Report
CARFAX is an agency dedicated to documenting and making available vehicle history reports so consumers can always make well-informed decisions. CARFAX keeps track of accidents and insurance claims made on a vehicle and compiles them into an easy-to-read report. When shopping for a vehicle, you may not be able to tell if a vehicle has suffered damage from a collision, but with a CARFAX report from a certified dealer, you can be confident in your car’s quality.
- Before you Buy, Test Drive the Vehicle
A test drive is an essential step of the buying process, allowing you to evaluate a car’s performance. Stat-lines and reviews can only tell you so much, and the best way to decide on a used luxury automobile is to drive it yourself. During a test drive, don’t forget to drive the car in all the scenarios you expect to encounter, including highways and interstate freeways.
- Always Test the Features
Buying a product that doesn’t meet your expectations can be disappointing. If you like a feature of a vehicle, then test it out and ensure it works before you drive off the lot. Turn every knob and press every button on the stereo, try out the backup camera, and recline the seats. Even if it’s summertime, test the heater and heated seats to guarantee your satisfaction.
