Buying a used car has many benefits over buying new, such as a lower cost, but there are also many potential pitfalls. Because used cars have a history, you could be subjected to a pampered vehicle that was well cared for, or end up with a vehicle that never received its regular oil changes.
We want our customers in Emmaus, Allentown, and Bethlehem to get the most value out of their purchase, so we decided to cover some tips for what you should look for when buying a used car.
When you take your test drive, listen for any unusual sounds, such as squeaking, grinding, or squealing. The engine should sound smooth and consistent, with no other sounds emanating from other areas of the car.
This is also an opportunity to put the car through the motions and check that the steering is even in both directions, the transmission shifts smoothly, both up and down, and that the car stays straight.
Now that you know what to look for in your used car, stop by Kelly Mitsubishi to check out our extensive inventory of used cars, trucks, and SUVs, and schedule your test drive!
