We know that there is a lot to consider when you’re buying a used car, truck or SUV. You want to drive away feeling confident that you’ve purchased a reliable car at an affordable price - and you deserve it, too! As one of the most trusted suppliers of top-quality used vehicles in Northern Saskatchewan, the North Battleford Hyundai team is sharing some of our best tips when it comes to shopping for a used car, from how to do an effective price comparison to leveraging an existing warranty to protect your purchase. Here’s a few key things to look for when you set out to buy your next used vehicle!
When you’re browsing through used vehicle inventory, there are a few factors that can affect the way they are priced, such as the manufacturer, mileage, features, number of owners and driving history. If there are specific brands that you’re interested in (like Hyundai!), you’ll want to compare models with similar specs to seek out the best deal. Look at the year, number of kilometres on each vehicle and any additional features that can affect price (for example, an upper trimline that’s fully loaded will cost more than the base model of the same vehicle, even if they have a similar driving history and mileage).
Although here at North Battleford Hyundai we work very hard to put an end to the “untrustworthy car salesman” stereotype, there is still merit in making sure you work with a trustworthy and reputable dealership. At a place like North Battleford Hyundai, we’re held accountable through things like our in-house Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program, our publicly available reviews and testimonials, our trade-in program, and our team of finance experts who can secure you an auto loan quickly and easily without running multiple credit reports.
We also work under full transparency, as is to be expected from any trustworthy dealership. You should be able to view all relevant specs of any used car, truck or SUV online, including make, model, year, mileage, features, and, perhaps most importantly, price. If a dealership doesn’t post their used vehicle prices online, it’s an indicator to steer clear of that particular dealer! We also believe it’s vitally important to have access to a vehicle history report for all used vehicles (not just certified pre-owned), which is why we supply a CARFAX Vehicle History Report for all of the used vehicles in our inventory. You can even view the CARFAX report for each vehicle online right from our used vehicle inventory page! The more you can learn ahead of time, the more prepared you’ll feel to make an educated buying decision once you visit the dealership.
Protect yourself and your new purchase by asking about warranty programs when you shop for a pre-owned vehicle. Warranties shouldn’t be reserved just for new vehicle purchases, and a good dealership will have in-house warranty programs designed to give you that added level of confidence about your purchase. Many national dealerships place major restrictions on their warranties for used vehicles, and independent dealers often don’t offer them at all - a place like North Battleford Hyundai with an in-house program will be able to offer you the best warranty possible for your new-to-you set of wheels.
Our team here at North Battleford Hyundai is dedicated to helping our community members who visit us from Unity, Maidstone, and as far as Shellbrook and even Prince Albert looking for a dependable used vehicle for a great price. We’re proud of the inventory of top-quality used cars, trucks and SUVs that we stock here at the dealership, and our experienced staff is here to help you with the vehicle-buying process every step of the way.
