couple driving quality used car on open road

When you visit a great used car dealer, shopping for a used car is like a treasure hunt. At The Auto Connection we have over 300 quality used cars for you to choose from—with so many options, the hardest part is narrowing down your choices. Here are a few pro tips on how to buy a used car.

Test Drive

This may seem like a no-brainer, but in the heat of the moment it can be tempting to purchase a car without giving it the proper test drive. Get behind the wheel to make sure it’s truly the used car of your dreams.

Set Your Budget

Knowing how much you can afford will keep you from worrying about payments later down the road. Even if you have bad credit, you can get in a car at The Auto Connection for just $1 down.*

Know the Car’s History

You may have to front some cash for a Carfax report, but it’s worth its weight in gold. Don’t want to pay for a report? Don’t worry. We offer a free Carfax report on all of our vehicles.

Just because it’s a used car doesn’t mean it shouldn’t come with benefits. Here at The Auto Connection, we offer a Best Friend Guarantee, which includes:
