Tips on Buying a Used Car with Honda Gallery

We know that not all Reading, MA drivers are on the hunt for something brand-new so, to give you the variety you deserve, we provide a wide selection of exceptionally high-quality and affordable used vehicles for you to peruse! Of course, we also know that many of you may be buying your first vehicle and could use some pointers. So, for your convenience, we have some tips on buying a used vehicle that will make your experience a little smoother. Let's take a look:

  1. Set a budget. It's important to know your price range and, most importantly of all, to stick to it. It may be tempting to spend a little more on that one used vehicle that has all the extra bells and whistles but, as anyone can tell you, spending more than you can afford is a bad idea. To help, we have a payment calculator tool on our site, completely free to use, that will assist in helping you decide your budget by showing estimated monthly payments.
  2. Choose the right vehicle for your needs. Just because you like that big SUV's huge cargo space doesn't mean it's the right vehicle for you; if you tend to only drive to and from work or the grocery store, alone or with just a friend or two, you'll probably enjoy a smaller sedan more than a large SUV in the long run. Do your research; no matter your daily routine, the right ride is just as important as the right price.
  3. Don't be afraid to ask for suggestions. Our auto experts know our lineup inside and out so, whether you have an idea of what you want or not, our team is ready and willing to point you in the right direction. We'll never steer you wrong!
  4. Know the value of the vehicle. It's incredibly reassuring to know that the vehicle you want is a good value, so be sure to check it out. You can use our free Value Your Trade tool to look up official Kelley Blue Book prices for any model, model year, trim, and options combination you can imagine.
  5. Run a vehicle history report. You can run a vehicle history report through companies like CARFAX or AutoCheck with nothing more than the vehicle's identification number. You deserve to know what your chosen ride has been through in the past to truly determine its quality.
  6. Go on a test drive. This may seem obvious but the only way to really know how a vehicle performs is by driving it. You can even request an extended test drive if there are specific, further-away roads or areas you travel often and would like to see how your chosen vehicle handles.
