Buying a used car can seem scary and feel like you're taking a big risk, but if you follow these simple tips below, you'll be ahead and the curve and well on your way to scoring a great deal.  See how easy it can be to get the next used car that you want without much of a hassle.  


 

1. Budget. Before you start doing any car research at all, you have to know how much you can afford. Determine how much you can spend per month, and don't forget extra costs like fuel, repairs, insurance, etc.

2. Research. What kind of car do you want/need? A family a four with a new baby on the way will have needs that are drastically different from a single person just starting their first full-time job. Once you know what segment you're looking at, narrow it down to the top three models. This is also when you would determine which features you want versus what you actually need.

 

3. History. Make sure you get a history report, like a CarFAX, for any used car you are considering purchasing. These reports should show you if the car has been in any accidents, along with any other issues you should know about.  At Heuberger Subaru, we provide this information for every used vehicle!  Check out our online inventory to see this feature for yourself! 

  

4. Test drive. Take every vehicle you are considering out on a thorough test drive. Don't just drive around the block for a few minutes. You want to spend as much time in the car as you can testing everything, from the sound system, to engine noise, seat comfort, steering vibrations, and brakes.  This is when you may potentially find issues that could come up down the road, or even before you get it home. 

 

5. Negotiate. This is surely the most dreaded part of buying a car, but if you have prepared well and know what price you want to pay, you can help make it as painless as possible. We want you to enjoy your car-buying experience, which is why we work with you to find a reasonable price within your budget!
