Easy Guide to Buy a Used Car in St Catharines

Easy Guide to Buy a Used Car in St Catharines

With new car prices rising daily, if you are looking for a “good deal,” your best option may be to buy a used car in St Catharines instead


While buying a new car is excellent, the pandemic has caused a shortage of new cars.


This “shortage” means you could wait a few weeks or months to get your new car, that is after you paid for the vehicle!


Identifying the right make and model used vehicle


You will need to do some research to find the vehicle that is right for you. A great example of a used vehicle that is reliable and keeps its resale value would be a Jeep Wrangler.


These vehicles have stood the test of time and are very popular.


Pick a vehicle with great resale value


Are you planning on keeping the used car forever, or will you buy a new car in a few years?


If you want to buy a new car in a few years, you should buy a used car that retains some of its resale value.


Depreciation will impact the value of your used car. Don’t worry about depreciation though, used car prices are high and should remain high for quite some time to come.


Don’t buy from private sellers


You may be tempted to buy a used car in St Catharines from a private seller, and while it may seem convenient. There are some risks that come with buying from private sellers.


If the seller did not download the official used car sales kit from the Ontario government, you could buy a car that does not belong to the private seller.


Even if the car belongs to them, there is no guarantee the vehicle is in good shape.


Stick with reputable, local used car dealerships


Protect yourself from disappointment by going through a local car dealership. The dealership is going to provide you with a great vehicle buying experience.


When you visit the dealership, they can give you the full maintenance record of the used car. This maintenance record shows the car is in good condition.


To help give you added peace of mind, you can run a CarFax on the car to see if the vehicle was ever involved in an accident.


Another benefit of going through a dealership is most of them will offer an extended warranty if the current one has nearly expired.


The dealership can help you secure a competitive car loan. Your credit score will profoundly impact the interest rate you are charged. Something that dealership can help show you how to rebuild your credit if your score is not high enough to get a competitive rate.


There is a shortage of used vehicles; you should visit your local used car dealership today. You will have a better selection of cars to choose from and can save money before interest rates start to rise.


Now that you know how to get a great deal on a used car, you should make it a priority to contact the dealership today.
