At Patriot Auto Group, we have a large inventory of used cars for sale at our Philadelphia, PA locations. When shopping for a used car, it may be helpful to have a list of questions ready to ask so you’re fully in-the-know.

To help you out, our dealers have compiled these helpful questions that can guide you on your car-shopping journey.

1. Does the car come with a CarFax® vehicle history report? 

CarFax® vehicle history reports give you all the necessary information you need to make an informed buying decision. These reports verify past ownership, vehicle mileage, service history, repair work, and whether the vehicle has been involved in an accident.  

2. What type of warranty does it come with? 

Some used cars come with a limited warranty, which is valid for a specified number of months or miles, whichever comes first. Used car warranties are perfect for offsetting the costs of any repairs and replacements 

3. What features does the vehicle offer? 

More often than not, used cars come with the same great features that come in new cars. When shopping for a used car, make a list of what features you need versus the ones you want.  

4. Does your dealership provide used car financing? 

Whether you’re buying new or used, financing is important. Make sure to ask whether a particular dealership offers financing for used cars.

If so, find out more about the financing process, how to apply for financing, and what financing options are available to you based on your credit score.  

5. Can I trade in my current car? 

Trading in your current car is an excellent way to decrease the cost of your used vehicle. Find out if you can trade in your current vehicle, and if so, how much it will be worth. You can get more money off your car purchase if you take a cash offer for your trade-in.
