5 Tips On Buying A Used Car

Buying a used car makes sense financially; with hundreds of vehicles available at Motor Hub Group in Truro, Nova Scotia, you're sure to find one that fits your budget-considering a new car? Here are some tips and advice to consider before you start the buying process.

Understand Your Wants and Needs

Before committing to a purchase, you need to narrow it down to the specific car you want. Some features to consider:

  • How many people have to own the vehicle before you
  • Legroom and headspace: You should factor in that when purchasing the car if a family member is tall.
  • If you have children, buying a car with advanced safety features and plenty of storage space is essential.
  • Technology: if you are keen on having technology features throughout, looking for a vehicle with Bluetooth connectivity and driver-assist technology may be essential for you, too


Is it essential that you check with your insurance company to establish their rates on the vehicle you're about to purchase? You don't want to be stuck with a car that you cannot pay monthly insurance premiums.

Examine the vehicle

The interior and exterior of the vehicle say a lot about the car's condition. Thoroughly inspect the vehicle for any dents, scratches or rust. Remember to open the doors, trunks and hood to ensure they haven't been replaced from an accident. For the interior, carefully inspect the seats and any wear and tear on the upholstery, not forgetting the floor mats and carpet.

Test Drive The Vehicle

A test drive is crucial because it lets you feel the vehicle before the final purchase. Bring along your family during the test drive to ensure everyone is comfortable.

Trade-in Options

Consider trading your old vehicle for money to go towards your new purchase and saving you money in the long run.
