Frequently Asked Questions When Buying Used

Everyone knows that buying a used car can save you thousands of dollars, but that doesn’t make it any less complicated. If you have any questions about buying a used car, here are a few common questions and answers.

Q: Why should I buy a used car?

A: In addition to saving you money, used cars are more reliable than ever. This means, used cars are much less of a gamble than they used to be. And, by getting a car only a few years old, you can still get some great modern features.

Q: Why should I buy from the dealership?

A: Buying from a private-party seller may seem like a good idea, but you take on a lot of risk when you take that route. Since they are not a business, you cannot verify their reputation or get any kind of guarantees from them. When you choose a dealership like Tipton, you can rest assured that we only sell the highest-quality used cars that we would buy ourselves.

Q: What is CPO and what is the difference between a CPO car and a used car?

A: CPO stands for “Certified Pre-Owned.” These cars are technically used, but have gone through an extensive inspection and reconditioning process before being put up for sale. In addition, most CPO cars also come with some kind of warranty coverage.

Q: What is a vehicle history report?

A: This is a report that shows the history of a used car. You can look up a report for any car by using its VIN. This will show you some of its service history, if it has been in any accidents, how many owners it has had, and more. You should always check a used car’s history report before buying it.
