There are many used cars available here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Smyrna, and asking the right questions can help you ensure that you get the vehicle that’s right for you. Here’s what you should ask when you start browsing through our selection of pre-owned vehicles.
Are There Maintenance Records?
A used car can have many years ahead of it and many miles left to drive, especially if it was well-maintained. If there are maintenance records, they can show you how good previous owners have been about getting oil changes and other routine maintenance that keeps a car running smoothly. A car that wasn’t well-maintained could be more likely to run into mechanical issues later.
How Many Previous Owners Did This Car Have?
Knowing how many owners a car has had can be valuable. A model that’s only a few years old that has already gone through multiple owners could have some issues.
Has This Car Been in an Accident?
Many drivers want to know if a car has been in an accident before they buy it. You can ask about repairs and ensure that there is no major underlying damage that could shorten the life of this used vehicle.
Is There Warranty Coverage?
Some used cars might still be covered by a warranty. Depending on how long a new car’s warranty lasts, it may be able to transfer to another owner.
Is This Car Certified Pre-Owned?
A CPO vehicle sets itself apart by meeting a brand’s high standards and offering a few extras that the typical used car might not. These vehicles usually have to pass a rigorous inspection. They often come with warranty coverage and access to roadside assistance programs as well.
