Benefits of Buying a Used Car From a Dealership

Buying a car is a huge investment for anyone. It’s the largest ticket item they’ll buy after a house for many people.

 

If you’re looking to buy a vehicle, you will look into what car you want, its fuel efficiency, space, looks, technology, and a host of personal conditions until you arrive at the make and model. 

 

Once you have the make and model, you’ll search for a car to match. You may find a used car dealership Courtenay but the cheapest example would likely be from a private seller. Now is the time to stop and think carefully; buyer beware! 

 

There are some excellent reasons that you should consider more than the upfront cost and look into buying used from dealership.  

 

Benefit #1: History

Benefit-1-History

 

The dealer can provide you with the complete history of a vehicle. From a private seller, you only have their word for the life of that vehicle, and that would only be from when they owned it. If the car has had several owners, you lose that information.

 

The private seller may not disclose water or accident damage, or other potential problems with the car, which is quite likely when checking out used cars Courtenay.

 

The continuation of a dealer’s business rests mainly on their reputation, so they will ensure that the car that’s being sold has been adequately inspected and any defects corrected.

 

Benefit #2: Warranty

Benefit-2-Warranty

 

Buying privately means you have little or no redress if things go wrong, or you may have to resort to expensive litigation. Buying through a dealer will give you peace of mind because buying a used car doesn’t mean you have no warranties. Your used car dealership Courtenay will have a range of warranty options for you to consider. These will help offset the costs of any failures in the future.

 

Benefit #3: Finance

 

The likelihood of a private seller being able to offer to finance your purchase is very slim. Your dealer will be able to provide several finance alternatives, and their in-house representatives will ease the process. Whether you are looking for an upfront payment from a loan, accepting a higher interest rate for lower monthly payments, or lower interest rates for higher monthly payments, the dealership will work with you to ensure the finance option you choose will fit your pocket; a big advantage to buying used from dealership.

Buying from a dealership will give you peace of mind. You know the car isn’t stolen, and you can arrange warranties to suit your needs. 

 

Dealerships also have a vast network of contacts to track down a specific vehicle for you. You do not have to buy a car that is not what you want because it is the only one the private seller has. If you want a different colour or a newer model, the dealer can likely locate one for you through those contacts.
