A Senior's Guide to Buying a Used Car

As a senior, you are probably living on a fixed income and can't afford to waste money, especially when it comes to buying a quality used car. Because there are so many choices out there, you may not be sure where to begin when choosing a make, model or realizing which features are the most important to you. We're ready to guide you through the process of choosing the right vehicle for your needs, from how to browse used cars to how to choose certain vehicle options, and more.

Create a Purchasing Plan  

Even if you have some idea about what kind of used car you want, the first step to buying it should be to make a purchasing plan. While you can customize this plan to suit your needs, it should include information about the car you have in mind, if any, your financial requirements and how you plan to pay for the car. Having a plan of action in place before you start to look at used cars can help you feel more confident when you visit lots.

Consider Safety  

Today's used cars include a wide variety of safety features, and making a list of which you prefer before you buy can help you narrow down your vehicle choices. For example, if your vision is not what it used to be, you may want to buy a vehicle with safety features such as a backup warning system or enhanced mirrors that eliminate blind spots. Our helpful salesmen can help you realize which safety systems you might need the most.

Keep Comfort in Mind  

If you have trouble with your back or legs, buying a used car that comes with a variety of comfort features, such as heated seats or lumbar support, can keep you feeling comfortable on the road. Remember to check for these creature comforts when you browse our lot.

With all the used cars available today, picking the right one can be a challenge for any senior driver. However, with a bit of planning and foreknowledge, you can make the right choice.
