Questions to Ask When Buying Used
Shopping for a used car has a number of benefits, ranging from a lower price tag now to a higher resale value down the line. Shopping for a used car can be a bit different than buying a new one, though, and shoppers should come with appropriate questions to ensure that they get the information they need while choosing the right fit.
At our Cleveland used car dealership, we believe that well-informed shoppers make the best customers, so here are some suggestions of what to ask when choosing the vehicle for you!
Is it 4x4?
A four- or all-wheel drive vehicle delivers better traction of tough terrain and slippery surfaces, but also requires more maintenance than a front- or rear-wheel-drive vehicle. As such, you should check the drive system on each car you look at and decide accordingly as to whether or not it fits your needs.
Does it Have a History of Accidents?
Even if a car looks good, there’s a chance that it’s been in an accident before. While a car can certainly be worth buying after an accident, knowing all of the facts can help you to decide whether it’s right for you and your plans. It never hurts to ask.
What Extras are Included?
From the manual, to spare keys and fobs, to the spare tire and jack, most new cars include several peripheries like these. They might not always be present and accounted for on a pre-owned car, though, so be sure to double-check if these are of particular importance to you.

We take pride in offering quality vehicles, as you can see from the latest reviews of our Cleveland used car dealership. We’re always open to questions about recent services and the state of a vehicle’s tires or brakes, so don’t hesitate to ask!
