How to Choose a Used Car

Buying a pre-owned car can be a stressful experience with all the options available. With a range of models, makes, and years available, it's pretty much impossible to buy a used car without a plan. At Perrysburg Auto Mall, we want to help you find the pre-owned car, truck, or SUV that fits your lifestyle. Explore our huge inventory of high quality used vehicles and find the perfect match for you with this helpful guide to buying used.

Set Your Budget

Take an honest look at your finances and decide what you can afford. When you're figuring out your budget, make sure to consider the monthly payments of your used car, as these will likely make up the bulk of the cost.

The trick to budgeting correctly is to make sure you don't stretch yourself too thin. Just because you make the money to afford something doesn't mean it's going to be easy to fit those payments into your lifestyle. Consider how much you're actually spending each month and decide on a reasonable sum to stick to.

Decide What Type Is Right for You

Whether you need a used car, truck, or SUV, it can help to choose the body type before going any further. If you have a family or need some extra space, then an SUV is a great option, but if you value a compact ride then a sedan is the way to go. Drivers who want some extra utility can always go with a truck.

Consider Features

A good exercise to narrow down your choices even further is to make a short list of must-have features. This is great for drivers who really want leather seats, an HD radio, or other luxury features.

Take a Test Drive

Once you've narrowed your choices down to a couple options, head down to our dealership in person and take a test drive. Our sales professionals will help you make the final decision on your pre-owned vehicle in Perrysburg.
