Here at Western Used, we know that people often have many questions and concerns when buying a vehicle. Our goal is to make it as easy and hassle-free as possible for our customers to leave happy in a used car that fits their budget and lifestyle. We’ve rounded up some of the most important things to consider when purchasing your next vehicle.
The most prominent reason that we started this blog was to share my knowledge of vehicle financing. It is the topic that we receive the most questions about, and the topic with the least knowledge publicly available. Knowing and understanding how financing a vehicle works is key to making the purchase process run smoothly.
When you’re financing a vehicle, here are a few things to consider:
When buying a used vehicle, it can be tough to know the life it lived before arriving on the lot or in your driveway. Here at Western Used, we offer CarProof reports for all of our used vehicles.
CarProof reports allow you to see accident history, theft reports, registration status, and more. Using CarProof is a quick and easy way to know that the vehicle you’re looking to buy has never been in an accident and is of the highest quality. We only buy used vehicles that meet our quality standards and are proud to offer CarProof reports to back them up.
Beyond the technical details and history of the car, don’t forget to give the vehicle that you’re purchasing a thorough visual inspection. Look for any potential leaks, dings, or scratches. Ensure that the components are sturdy and well-built for your needs.
Take it for a test drive and get a feel for how it handles. While you’re in the driver’s seat, we recommend trying the different features of the vehicle. Test the heat/air conditioning, automatic seats, locks, speakers, and more. Make sure that the vehicle meets your personal standards and we’ll take care of the rest.
Any financing deal that you arrive at will have started from the agreed upon purchase price, so it is important to consider this number and not just your payments.
We know that used vehicle shoppers in Corner Brook and beyond are looking online to find the best deals. That’s why we partner with CarGurus to provide additional insights into our posted prices.
