Things to Check When Buying a Used Car

Acura TLX

On our website, you can research makes and models, like the Acura ILX, Acura TLX, and Acura RDX, from the comfort of your home. When you see a vehicle you like, we recommend you ask our dealer experts for a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™.

CARFAX® is an extremely helpful tool that can provide you with detailed information about a vehicle’s condition, which has been compiled over its lifespan. The report will provide details about the used car’s:

  • Number of previous owners
  • Number, nature, and severity of accidents (if any)
  • Degree of significant bodywork
  • Current mileage
  • Maintenance history

The maintenance history section of a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ will give you detailed information about how often the vehicle received routine maintenance, like oil, brake, and tire service. This shows you that the used cars on our lot were well cared for by their previous owners.

Steps in the Used Car-Buying Process: Financing

When buying a used car, our Online Financing Application, Payment Calculator, and Value Your Trade tool can all help you provide a ballpark idea of the financing that will suit you. Then, our experts will take a closer look to develop a complete plan for you.

When you visit our dealership for your test drive, we will walk you through these steps:

  • Plan for your trade-in, if you have one.
  • Pinpoint the term, down payment, and monthly payments that fit your needs.
  • Incorporate any specials that may be applied to your purchase.
  • Discuss applicable warranties.

To prepare for this part of the process, it’s also a good idea to be aware of information that makes up your financial profile. Items like your credit report provide a clearer understanding of your financing requirements. No matter what kind of credit you have, our team will work with you to find fair financing to drive home in a used car you love.
