How Do You Know you're buying the Right Used Car in Delano, Ca?

How Do You Know youre buying the Right Used Car  in Delano, Ca?

Buying a used car doesn't have to be complicated. Some people have a difficult time when it comes to buying the right car for them. When buying a used car, your fear can come from finding the car that doesn't have any problems or underlying issues, finding something that doesn't have a lot of miles or has not been beat up from common driving wear and tear.

So when looking for a used car how do you know you are making the right choice?

When buying a used car, the least of your issues is making sure that the quality of the vehicle is in question. Here are some things to consider before you buy your next used car in Delano, Ca.
1.) Assess your needs
2.) Set your Budget
3.) Consider other Cars in the Class.
4.) Weigh the Cost of Ownership
5.) Set up a Test Drive

Assess your Needs

Picking a used car should be dependent on what you need for your driving needs. There is a car for every kind of driver, so don't think your dream car isn't waiting for you! More often than not, people just need a daily driver, something they can take to work, something that is comfortable, and something that gets a good fuel economy. These are just some of the basic wants and needs when looking for a car. If you are in construction, one of your needs may also be towing and storage. If you have a family, you may consider a vehicle with a larger cabin for extra room for all the people in the car, along with bonus safety features that may be included with the vehicle. Again, this is all dependent on what you need and your lifestyle.

Consider your needs then start looking for a car. The last thing you want to do is see a nice car on the street and be set on that car without looking at exactly what you need in a car.

Set Your Budget

This may come off as intuitive, but setting a budget for when you are buying a car is crucial in the buying process. Many people don't consider a budget based on their income, so they go into the dealership expecting to get the car at their price, running their credit through multiple lenders and still end up getting denied. A good rule of thumb is to look at your monthly income, and consider getting a car that's payments will equal out to about 15-20% of their total income. If you are getting an older model, you may even consider getting a vehicle that is about 10% of your monthly gross income because of any maintenance that may need to be done on the car regularly.

Consider other Cars in the Class

Don't make the mistake of being married to a single make or dealership. Although you may have some connections or you're used to driving a specific make of car, with the way that many vehicle manufacturers are developing, you can find many of the features you are looking for in more economical models without the extravagant price tag in some cases.

You may be looking for a Mercedes-Benz and it fits all your needs, but buying the equivalent Toyota or Ford vehicle may save you a lot more money, it would be easier to repair and you won't be stuck waiting for parts in the case there is any major issues with the car.

Weighing the Cost of Ownership

Buying a car is more than just getting approved on a loan. After you drive off with the vehicle, you need to consider the payments for insurance and any other maintenance you may have to perform given the condition of the car. Buying from a reputable dealership or a newer model may help with some of those extra costs, but what you are not paying in extras you are most likely paying on the actual car itself. The nice thing to consider when buying an older model vehicle is that usually the technology hasn't changed too much over the course of a couple years, so you may get all the features you are looking for at a much more affordable price.

Test Drive the Car

Lastly, when buying a used car, ALWAYS test drive the car. You have found the car that is perfect on the outside but you aren't buying a car just for looks usually, you are going to be driving it, a lot at times, so making sure the engine works under many driving conditions is crucial information when buying a used car. Check the interior for any defects, scratches or dings. Make sure all the buttons and devices are working. When you are driving, make sure the transmission is switching between gears properly. Listen for any strange noises when you turn on the car, when you are driving the car and when you push the car to a higher RPM. If you want to make sure you (safely) push the car to replicate your driving style so that you don't get hit with any unexpected issues in the future.
