Six Important Aspects to Check When Buying a Used Car

New cars become used cars as soon as they leave the dealership lot. In every situation, it means hundreds of dollars in depreciation. Because many in the Triangle and Apex use vehicles for basic and local transportation, it might be a good idea to buy a used car, truck, van or SUV. There needs to be careful consideration when choosing the right one. We all must be very careful of history and of the possibility of flood damage. There are thousands of vehicles that have flooded and are now being sold. Often, only professionals can tell when a car is flawed.

Let Premier One Automotive help when considering a used vehicle purchase. We can do an inspection of any used car. Our ASE certified mechanics are trained to spot faulty and damaged components that could lead to more time in the shop.

Our local certified technicians at P1A will inspect the following areas:

  • Brake systems
  • Tires and wheels
  • Engine and transmission
  • Timing belts and exhaust
  • Electrical systems and air conditioning

An inspection before buying is essential. We ensure the safety and quality with a thorough inspection. One test drive will tell a lot about drivability. But, every used car buyer needs to do a little homework; check the operating costs for miles per gallon, average maintenance and repair costs. This can easily be done online or by calling the dealer; it is all about safety and cost. A safety check is always important when it comes to buying a used car. Check the crash test ratings and look for the vehicle’s history.

Questions are a must when it comes to purchasing an automobile in a private sale or from a local dealer. Call us and schedule an appointment for your used car find. Every seller will allow this opportunity. If the seller does not, do not buy it.

Our friendly and professional staff wants to build a great relationship with Triangle motorists and we do not want to see anyone ripped off. An inspection will tell the complete story. Call us today.

If you own an Audi, BMW, Volvo, Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, Porsche, or Jaguar; we are the only automotive service center you will ever need.  Of course, we work on any domestic and import and are certified to do every major and minor repair.
