How much money you have available to buy a pre-owned vehicle determines whether it is “affordable” or not. Spending more than you have allotted is not a wise idea. In addition, just because you have saved a wad of cash doesn’t mean you have to use it all on your purchase. There are literally thousands of affordable cars in Mill Creek from which you can choose. Don’t just settle for the first one you find.
You may even consider making a substantial down payment on a vehicle and then financing the rest. Carson Cars is pleased to provide a varied selection of used vehicles with many options for auto loans with any credit rating.
When buying a used car, be sure to evaluate these factors:
- The make, model, age, mileage and condition of the auto.
- Your transportation needs.
- Budgetary concerns.
- Fuel economy.
- Routine maintenance costs like tires and rotation, oil changes, etc.
- Financing versus paying cash in full at purchase.
- Compare similar makes and models of differing brands. Different automakers manufacture the same basic car with widely varying costs depending on name recognition.
- Take at least one test drive, but preferably several, in the city, country roads and the interstate.
- Inspect, or have your favorite mechanic inspect, the car to see if there are any problems that are not immediately visible.
- Completely look over any vehicle you are considering – inside, outside, under the hood, the undercarriage and beneath tire wells.
