Buying A Pre-Owned Vehicle? Know What To Ask At The Car Dealership

Have you decided that you want to purchase a pre-owned vehicle but aren't sure about the best way to go about doing it? It will help to know the following questions to ask when you are at the car dealership. 

What Additional Fees Are Required When Buying The Vehicle?

Any time you buy a car, you'll want to know what you will be charged for beyond the price of the vehicle and the sales tax. This can help reveal a few things about the price of the car, such as dealer fees and additional markups. There may be charges associated with your state, such as electronic registration fees. You can also use this as a negotiating tactic later on. 

Are There Non-Factory Items On The Vehicle?

An important question to ask if there are any non-factory items that have been installed on the car. It's not necessarily a good or bad thing if there are non-factory items installed, but it lets you know what the dealership has done for additional markup on the vehicle. They may not know for sure what a previous owner has done to the vehicle, but the dealership will know if they've got any upgrades that are being included in the vehicle's overall markup. You can use those non-factory items as a negotiating item so that you can have the cost of those items removed.

How Did You Acquire The Vehicle? 

It's also worth asking how the dealership acquired the vehicle that they are selling you. Sometimes cars are trade-ins from people buying a new vehicle, they could be from a rental car company, or they might be from an auction. This is a personal preference for what you're looking for, since you may be looking to avoid rental cars that have had a lot of different drivers over the years.

Is There A Return Policy And A Repair Policy?

Every dealership handles returns and repairs differently. Some give you a couple of days where you can take the vehicle back if you do not like it, while others have no return policy at all. The same can also be said for a repair policy, where you can come back and have something fixed if you discover something wrong. It is good to know what the policies are so that you know if they stand behind the vehicle they are selling. Those that offer generous repair and return policies mean that you will have some peace of mind that you have coverage if you discover a problem soon after driving off with the vehicle.
