Buying a Used Car That’s Right for You


Replacing your vehicle doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive. If you’re not married to the idea of buying a brand new car, a pre-owned vehicle is just what the doctor ordered. Despite the bad rap used cars get in popular media, the vast majority of them are quality vehicles in perfectly drivable condition. Keep an eye out for the following qualities when looking for the right used cars.

Decent Mileage

When perusing pre-owned vehicles, limit your choices to cars that have been driven for less than 100,000 miles. This is the point at which many manufacturers’ warranties expire, so if something goes wrong, you may experience difficulty having the vehicle serviced free of charge.

Light Wear

Just because a vehicle is pre-owned doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be in good condition. Not only should the car be free of dents, dings and rust patches, it should also feature fully-functional, up-to-date parts. Ideally, the car shouldn’t have been involved in any accidents. Most of the used vehicles found at Kia of Auburn meet these criteria.

Car buyers on a budget stand to benefit from purchasing pre-owned vehicles. So if a brand new car is well outside of your budget, consider buying used.
