Getting A Quality Used Vehicle


Although many consumers may think they know exactly what to look for in a used car, all too often there are certain things they can overlook when shopping. However, it doesn’t take too long to familiarize yourself with the best ways to asses a used car, and Popular Mechanics recently offered a few tips on the best ways to go about buying a used car.

Perhaps the most important aspect of buying a used car is the inspection you perform before you get behind the wheel. To start, experts suggest turning to the internet to thoroughly research the model you’re considering buying. Chances are if it has any problem areas there will be a message board or forum somewhere dedicated to letting everyone know.

Also important is how well you can give the car a physical inspection. There are a number of tell-tale signs that could be indicative of larger problems including rusty areas or the more subtle gouges along the outer-body, which could suggest that the car has been through a frame-straightening machine, the publication reports.

You will also want to be on the lookout for fluid leaks, which could signal a serious problem with the car. Even if it seems small, there is always the chance that it could grow larger very quickly, which could be a costly fix.

The test drive is crucial as well, and the publication says that there is not one specific thing to look for but instead the overall feel of the vehicle is important including how it steers, changes gears and how it brakes.

Of course, buying a used car from a reputable source is important as well.  Norton Automotive Group provides consumers with plenty of makes and models of used cars, at affordable prices with down payments as low as $500, no other dealer in town can do that.  Come check out our quality inventory, call (713) 426-4600 to schedule and appointment with Chris or Shaun and we will get you driving the same day !!!!ADNFCR-2112-ID-800620275-ADNFCR
