At New Jersey State Auto Used Cars, we're dedicated to helping you find your dream car, and we can help you with all the necessary paperwork. Let us offer you some advice for when you're shopping for a pre-owned vehicle.
Many people would like the opportunity to buy a brand-new vehicle, but for the shrewd buyer, a used car makes much better sense financially. Firstly, a new car starts to depreciate as soon as you drive away from the dealership. When you buy a used vehicle, you get the satisfaction that the original owner took the biggest depreciation hit and that you're getting a great value car.
With our large range of used cars, it's easier to find the type of vehicle you want within your budget, with a higher specification and all the extra features you want. You might also save money on insurance as earlier model cars tend to be cheaper to insure than new cars.
At one time, buying a pre-owned car could bring concerns about reliability. That's not usually the case now, as modern vehicles are designed to last longer, and even a high mileage car should give you no worries. For additional confidence, many of the pre-owned vehicles at New Jersey State Auto Used Cars are covered by a limited warranty.
When you find a vehicle that takes your fancy, you should inspect it carefully, inside and out. On the bodywork, look for dents, scrapes, and rust patches. You'd usually expect some small dings or scratches, but larger areas of damage might need a closer inspection. Check for uneven panels that might indicate the vehicle has been damaged and not repaired correctly.
Open and shut the hood, trunk, and doors to see if they move smoothly and line up as they should. Ensure the paint color matches on all the panels, and check the inside of all openings for paint overspray. Slightly off-matched paint or overspray could show that the car's been repaired and resprayed.
Inside, look for excessive wear and tear on the seats. Sit in each seat and check that the adjustment controls work properly. If you notice a musty interior smell, look at the carpets for signs of current or past water leaks.
When considering a car, a test drive can help you decide if it's the right vehicle for you, and you can also pick up on any potential faults. Before you start the car, turn the ignition key to the On position and make sure that all the instrument panel warning lights come on. Most of them should go out when you start the engine, and if they don't, there might be a problem.
Before driving away, listen for any odd noises from the engine. Knocking, clicking, or tapping sounds could indicate faults. When you drive the car, drive at different speeds and on a variety of road surfaces. Ensure the transmission shifts smoothly between gears and pay attention to any unusual noises from the transmission, engine, or brakes.
At the end of the test drive, check beneath the vehicle for oil or water dripping from the engine, transmission, or cooling system. At New Jersey State Auto Used Cars, all of our pre-owned cars have been extensively inspected to the highest standard, but you're welcome to arrange your own inspection.
