Buying a used car is a big deal. After rent or mortgage payments, it’s usually one of the most important purchases you’ll make. But buying a used car can actually save you money today and in the long run. By being prepared to ask the questions below, you can take the worry out of your purchase.

  1. Can you show me the service history? A full service history of a vehicle is a detailed record that tells you any maintenance or work the car has undergone—like oil changes, tire rotations, body repairs, etc. Auto Connection provides a free AutoCheck report with the purchase of each vehicle.
  2. Where’s the title? A car’s title is the document that identifies the legal owner of that vehicle. If you buy from a dealership, the title should be in the dealership’s name. When you buy a used car from Auto Connection, you’ll get a Clean Vehicle Title Guarantee. 
  3. Can I take it for a test drive? This one may seem obvious, but you should definitely test drive any used car you want to buy! In addition to making sure the used car is comfortable and fun to drive, have a checklist of other items you may overlook, like checking the air conditioning, making sure all the windows roll down, the amount of trunk space, etc.
  4. Has this car been inspected? The Auto Connection thoroughly inspects each and every car before we put it on the lot for sale.
