What to Look for in a Used Car

November 3rd, 2020 by

There are lots of things to consider when you’re used car shopping. Our team at Woodhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM Sioux City has a few tips to help when you are shopping used cars Sioux City, Iowa.

Start with Your Must-Haves

One of the biggest perks of shopping for a pre-owned vehicle is the endless amount of options available. After all, working with a limited budget can really restrict your choices when you are shopping new. But, shopping such a vast array can be overwhelming. Start with your must-haves:

  • How much passenger space do you need?
  • What is your preferred body type?
  • Are there certain features you can’t go without?

Take a Test Drive

It’s important to take a test drive when you are car shopping, but it’s crucial when shopping used cars. As always, you want to make sure you feel comfortable behind the wheel, whether navigating stop-and-go traffic or parking.

But, you also want to make sure the car still has the get-up-and-go you desire. Does it accelerate with ease? Does it drive smoothly? You want to ensure the car is in good condition and is damage-free.

At Woodhouse CDJR Sioux City, we make sure every vehicle that crosses our lot is in peak condition, but if you find something amiss, just bring it to the attention of your dealer. We’ll find a solution that works for you.

Consider a Certified Pre-Owned Option

If you need added peace of mind, consider a certified pre-owned vehicle. It can seem risky to shop for a used vehicle. But, while all of our used cars are quality vehicles, the certified pre-owned models have added assurance.

The vehicles go through a meticulous inspection to make sure they are running good as new. They are also protected with additional warranties to protect you if they don’t.
