4 Things to Consider When Looking at Used Cars


If you are considering a new car and plan to visit a used car dealership, you are about to be presented with a lot of options and decisions. Buying a used car can be risky if you don't know what you're looking for, but the right match will provide you with reliable transportation for years to come. So how do you go about finding the right car for you? Here are 4 things to consider as you look at used vehicles in Anchorage, Alaska.

Usage and Passengers

Whether you are getting a new or previously owned car, you should think about what you will be using it for. Are you looking for a new commuter car? A van for family road trips? A truck that will spend a lot of time on unpaved roads? When you get to the used car lot to start looking, it may help to explain your intended car use to the dealer. They will be able to make recommendations and point you in the right direction.

You will also need to think about the people who will frequently be riding in your car. Tall people will need more leg room and enough height to feel comfortable. Elderly or disabled passengers may do better with a shorter car that is easier to get in to with enough space for a wheelchair or other equipment. If you have children, keep car seats and booster seats in mind as you look at different cars. 


The primary function of a car is, or course, driving. It follows that one of your biggest considerations should be the way the car drives. This is the purpose of test driving, which you will be able to do with any car you are interested in at a dealership. Try to drive on different types of roads, including highways. 

When you head out on your test drive, pay attention to the way everything feels and your own comfort level behind the wheel. Test your brakes, turning, and gear shifting, and listen for any sounds that may indicate trouble. You should also check for any specific functions you need, such as four-wheel drive. If you don't like the way the car feels, it's best to keep looking, even if the car seems to be in good condition. 

Wear and Tear

Look over every visible inch of the car, both inside and outside. It is unlikely that the car will look as it did when it was purchased the first time, but the wear and tear should not be so extensive that you will need to make repairs before it can be used comfortably. Important features to check in the interior of the car include the air conditioning and upholstery. You aren't necessarily buying a used car because you like the look, but you don't need to settle for a car that is run down and dirty.

The exterior includes the fender, the mirrors, and the paint job. If previous damage is evident, you should feel that it has been repaired adequately and professionally. You should also look under the hood of the car. Even if you don't know much about the way things are supposed to look and run, you will be able to see if the engine and other parts are rusted or dirty. 

Car History

You should learn as much as you can about the car's history from the dealer. Beyond the miles on the car, get any available information about previous accidents and problems. This includes the inspection that the dealership will conduct on the mechanical and safety features of the vehicle. You should not invest in used vehicles in Anchorage, Alaska until you know that your selection is ready to pass all certifications and will keep you and your passengers as safe as possible.
