Searching for the right used car can seem like an impossible task. The sheer volume of vehicles on the market can distract buyers and lead them to purchase a subpar option. When searching for the best used cars for sale, knowing what to look for can help you find a vehicle without breaking the bank.
Start by inspecting the exterior of the vehicle. Are there any noticeable dents, dings, or discolorations in the paint? These are all indicators that the vehicle may have been involved in a collision at some point while they were on the road.
Another good indicator of this is a bump or dip felt while running your fingers along the seams of the vehicle. Be sure to check the doors and the hood for these.
If the inspection sticker is present, check the date. This can let you know how long the vehicle has been sitting in the lot. The longer it has been there, the more likely there is an unseen issue.
Next, used a coin to check the tread of the tires. Tires without proper tread will not pass inspection, so if you purchase the vehicle in this condition the cost of replacing these tires will fall on you.
