When it comes to used cars, you have many options to pick from. That’s where our team here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Smyrna can help. We make it easy to take home the cars you like best at a price that fits your budget, and purchasing pre-owned is the best way to save. Here are the top things you’ll want to consider when picking out the next pre-owned vehicle.


Mileage is one of the most important elements to keep in mind when it comes to pre-owned vehicles. In fact, it’s more important than the age of the car, since it can give you insight into how the vehicle was driven and the age of individual components and systems. Low-mileage vehicles will last longer, and their parts will have less wear.

While higher mileage isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker, you’ll want to look for low-mileage cars when you can. The type of mileage matters as well—cars with highway mileage typically have less wear than cars with city mileage, since the latter puts more of a strain on the vehicle’s parts. However, mileage isn’t the only factor to consider when looking at used cars.

Other Important Considerations

You’ll also want to look for vehicles with fewer previous owners. When you have just one or two previous owners, it’s easier to follow up on the service and accident history of the vehicle. It’s also easier to verify the mileage, especially if the mileage is very low.

Another important thing to look at when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is the vehicle’s service history and log. A vehicle with a regular and comprehensive service history will likely run for longer and have fewer repair needs than a vehicle with a more sporadic service history.
