Our staff at Cox Auto Group in Newark, DE is always interested in helping our community learn about purchasing used vehicles. We have a few tips for you to make sure you get the used vehicle that you want the first time.

Consider checking your budget so that you know how much you can afford for a used vehicle. You may also want to get pre-approved, so you know how much you need for a down payment. If you are going to trade in a vehicle and put it towards a down payment, get a quote to know what your trade-in value is.

Once you decided on a vehicle to test drive, don't forget to check the vehicle history report. This report can tell you how many owners it had previously and if the car was maintained on a proper schedule.
