When it comes to buying a quality used car, many people turn to Craigslist. Though the prices on their vehicles may seem like a great deal, buyer beware: It may not be what it seems. Here are 3 cons of buying a car on Craigslist.

  1. No Vehicle Report

If you don’t know where a car’s been or what’s happened to it, you run the risk of driving away with a lemon. Just because you don’t see damage doesn’t mean it isn’t there. That’s why a vehicle report is so important. (Craigslist sellers may not offer one, but every quality used car at The Auto Connection comes with a FREE AutoCheck report.)

  1. Harder to Get Financing

Buying a used vehicle through Craigslist can mean difficulty in finding financing, especially if you have bad credit.

At The Auto Connection, we’ve been putting drivers in the driver’s seat for over 20 years, regardless of their credit history. Our Buy Here Pay Here program makes picking out and financing your quality used vehicle a breeze.

  1. No Mechanical Inspection

When you look at a Craigslist vehicle, chances are it hasn’t been inspected by a professional mechanic. You could get it inspected, but you’d have to pay for it (and it won’t be cheap).

Every car at The Auto Connection goes through a 100-point inspection to ensure it’s in great shape for its new owner.
