Ask These Questions When Buying a Used Vehicle

When buying a vehicle that has been owned beforehand, you want to answer a few key questions to eliminate as many unknowns as possible. You want to gather enough knowledge to tell a story about the history of the vehicle you’re considering.

Instamotor pre-screens every vehicle and you can have peace of mind that you won’t be purchasing a vehicle that has any of the following red flags: odometer rollback, structural damage, a branded title, airbags that have been deployed, a lemon, total loss or vehicles that have been used for commercial purposes such as a taxi. We do all the legwork of screening out these types of vehicles. However, as a smart consumer you’ll want to ask some key questions:

– Has the vehicle been involved in an accident?
– Has the vehicle ever been repainted?
– Did anyone ever smoke in this vehicle?
– Do you have a clean title in-hand?
– Do do you have a smog check (for vehicles more than 4 years old in CA)
– Does the car have a spare tire?
– How many keys/remotes do you have?
– Do you have service/maintenance records?
– Can I test-drive the vehicle?
– Can I have my mechanic do an inspection?

These questions along with these tips for test driving will help you make an informed decision on your potential next vehicle.
