How to Handle a Used Car Purchase

Use the following tips to help you prepare for your upcoming vehicle purchase.

> Plan ahead.

For many, a car is their second most expensive purchase, next to a house, and will require some financial planning. Much like a house or other large purchase, the entire cost of a vehicle includes more than just the base-line monthly payment. Before you buy, deduct the base-line monthly payment and all other associated costs, including maintenance, gasoline, insurance and taxes. Otherwise, you won’t have a realistic number and may find yourself buying more from used car dealers than you can afford.

> Research car quality.

Used car dealers should guarantee the quality of their vehicles, as Monarch Auto Sales does. However, it’s always wise to do your homework. Either take someone with you who knows what to look and listen for on a test drive, or pay a mechanic one hour of labor to check the major systems on the car. Most used car dealers will allow this, and it is the easiest way to keep from buying a problem car. You can also access title searches online from CARFAX, AutoCheck and other related websites.

> Compare car price.

While you can certainly visit other car dealers in Greensboro to compare prices, an Internet search on the Kelley Blue Book website or the NADA website will give you a good idea of range. Wholesale, trade-in and loan value are all pretty much the same kind of number. Retail is the marked-up price. You will generally pay somewhere between those two numbers. Be aware, you definitely get what you pay for.

> If you finance, shop rates.

While cash is the best way to pay for a car, banks, manufacturers and secondary vendors all offer financing options. Which one is best for your situation and how do you know what rates to expect? Banks have the lowest rates, although secondary financing may be needed if you have poor credit, or even no credit. While many used car dealers in Greensboro offer financing, Monarch Auto Sales specializes in helping customers with no credit or poor credit issues.

> Consider a warranty.

Reputable car lots guarantee the quality of their vehicles, but warranties and GAP insurance can be a cost-effective way to account for the unforeseen. Ask our team what kind of coverage you should consider and what is best for your financial situation.
