June 29th, 2018 by

Fiat 124 Spider

There are many things to consider when you’re in the market for a used car near Federal Way. The team at FIAT of Tacoma came up with a used car buying checklist, so that Kent drivers can have a hassle-free car-buying experience.

What to Keep in Mind When You Buying Used or Pre-owned Cars

  • Be realistic about what kind of car you need based on your lifestyle and budget.
  • Check the value of the vehicle you are thinking about buying on Kelly Blue Book. Keep the make, model, year, and mileage of the vehicle in mind, as that will influence the value.
  • Purchase your used vehicle from a trusted dealership rather than a private seller.
  • Take a test drive and check the brakes and the electronics. Listen for any any noises coming from the engine or suspension, windows and locks, and windshield.
  • Ask for a vehicle history report and examine it.
  • Ask the seller if you can take the car to a trusted technician to examine.
  • Bargain with the seller to get a fair price.
  • Don’t be afraid to get up and leave if you feel you are not getting a fair price or decide you do not want to buy anymore.
