How Do I Get a Great Deal on a Used Car, Truck, or SUV?

Car buyers of today have almost too many options to shop. From social media marketplaces to classifieds to websites, we are overwhelmed with options and a nearly endless supply of cars. So where can you go to find the best deal? It comes down to 3 choices: a small car lot, a private transaction, or a dealer. Every option has its good and bad parts, but when making such a large decision you want the best deal possible.

Purchasing From a Used Vehicle Lot

An independent pre-owned car lot can offer some of the benefits of a bigger dealer, like a large choice of cars and the possibility of viewing them online. You can still get a big choice of cars, trucks, or SUVs and the ability to browse them online at an independent used car lot, but they also do offer more risks to shoppers. While some could be an established part of the community, several others seem to come and go quickly. Here are some of the other important differences between a dealership and a used car lot:

  • Inspections – Inspections at used car lots are generally not quite as comprehensive.
  • Pre-Sale Repairs – ‘Quick fixes’ may be employed to save money and maximize profits.
  • Mechanics – Limited on-site service technicians, some with minimal experience.
  • Character – Some car lots choose profitability over customers.
  • Condition of the Vehicle – Watch out for vehicles that have high miles with potentially vague pasts.
  • Financing – The rates are usually higher than most if they even have in-house financing.
  • No Certified Pre-Owned – CPO cars, trucks, and SUVs are only available at manufacturer-authorized dealers.

Independent Seller Sales

Buying Used From Independent Sellers

If you’re looking for a rare car, particularly an old vehicle, then a private seller might be your only real option. You might be able to get a great price on the car you’ve been looking for, but you as the buyer take on nearly all of the risk. You will be accountable for all of the features found at the dealership:

  • Customer Reviews – Good luck finding any information. Do you trust the seller?
  • Warranty – Caveat Emptor, Buyer Beware
  • History of the Car – You are responsible for paying for the vehicle history reports.
  • Pre-Purchase Inspections – A 3rd party inspection is suggested before you buy, but you would be on the hook for the cost.
  • Financing – While many personal sellers want cash, you can also try getting a loan through your own lender. Either way, your choices are smaller.
  • The Vehicle’s Current Condition – There may be unknown or underlying reasons for selling the vehicle.

Pre-Owned Car Buying From Your Local Auto Dealership

While a lot of folks would agree that it is the most convenient way to buy a pre-owned car, some believe they can get a better deal somewhere else. While you may get a lower price somewhere else (likely with a lot of miles and fewer guarantees on condition), absolutely nothing can equal the customer service we provide.

Advantages of buying here include:

  • Lots of Options for Financing – We offer multiple ways to get you financed.
  • Lots of Customer Reviews – It’s easy to see what others think.
  • Vehicle History Reports – See the history of the car you may purchase.
  • Objective Pricing – Our trained vehicle specialists work diligently to set fair prices.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles – We offer CPO vehicles for your peace of mind.
  • Selection – We have a much larger selection than most.
  • Speedy Delivery – We will deliver. Just ask and we’ll see what we can do. (Exclusions apply)
  • Buy Online – When you can’t make it to the dealership, you can buy online 24/7.
  • Helpful Open Hours – We have extended hours of business to be ready when needed.
