Helpful Tips for Buying a Used Vehicle


Used Car Buying That Checks All of the Right Boxes

Your ideal used vehicle is right around the corner at Kia of Orange Park. Get a running start on finding your perfect pre-owned model by utilizing Kia of Orange Park’s online used inventory search filters that prioritize vehicle preferences like color, transmission variety, engine type, and more.

A lack of transparency can put a damper on your used car shopping experience. Receive the used vehicle buying clarity that you deserve with Kia of Orange Park’s pre-owned inventory that offers you access to CarFax vehicle history reports. Kia of Orange Park offers a Lifetime Warranty on select pre-owned Kia vehicles and other used makes and models so you can gain exceptional protection on affordable used cars.

There’s no need for a mechanic’s second opinion on a pre-owned model when you buy Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) at Kia of Orange Park. Every CPO model on our dealership’s lot has undergone a rigorous multi-point inspection to ensure that the vehicle’s “certified” label speaks for itself.

It’s essential to stay safe when shopping for a used car since some models can be unreliable, unsafe, and overpriced. You can hurdle these used vehicle buying problems with some thought-out preparation.

How to Begin Your Used Car Search

Your budget is the first thing that’s helpful to consider when shopping for a pre-owned vehicle. A proper used car buying budget goes beyond monthly payments and includes associative costs like insurance and maintenance. You can always pay extra for a CPO model to take care of your pre-owned model maintenance needs through the CPO vehicle’s manufacturer warranty coverage.

Quality used car financing can help you make the most of your pre-owned buying budget. Kia of Orange Park offers you access to convenient online tools that help you take significant used vehicle financing steps at home. Calculating your credit score, getting pre-qualified for financing in less than 60 seconds, and filling out Kia of Orange Park’s Finance Application can all be accomplished through our website.

Once you establish a budget, you can match that budget with models that meet your specific driving needs. You can define your driving needs by asking yourself questions that include but aren’t limited to how often you drive, how far your drives typically are, if you’ll regularly have to carry passengers, and what features you’ll most benefit from.

Elements to Inspect When Viewing a Used Vehicle

So you’ve found a pre-owned vehicle that looks like a great match.
Now what?

A thorough used car inspection will go a long way toward fostering pre-owned buying satisfaction.

Once you walk up to the car you’re interested in—think about your first impression before you study vital components like the vehicle’s paint, tires, and interior upholstery. A test drive will allow you to access a pre-owned vehicle’s performance, test technology features, and verify the functionality of other significant elements like lights.
