Should I Buy a Used Car from a Dealership?

What Questions Do I Ask When Buying a Used Car?

When you're ready to buy a used car nearby, you'll want to be prepared with the right information so that you can make an informed purchase decision. To that end, we recommend you ask your auto sales associate the following questions when you arrive at our dealership for a used Lincoln test-drive:

  • Does the car have a clean Vehicle History Report?
  • Are there maintenance records or receipts to verify any prior servicing?
  • What safety features and other technologies is the car equipped with?
  • Is the vehicle still covered by the factory warranty? If not, is it eligible for an extended warranty?

How Many Miles is Good for a Used Car?

Generally, lower mileage is more ideal, as a vehicle that hasn't seen as much road time will usually have less wear and tear compared to a high-mileage car. That said, well-maintained vehicles with higher mileage are often available for a highly competitive price point, making them a great choice if you're looking for a reliable used car under $20,000 or less. Our used Lincoln SUVs near Windsor are thoroughly vetted to ensure they will offer many miles of trouble-free driving, so you can buy from us with confidence. Whether you want a low-mileage CPO Lincoln Aviator or an older used Navigator, we can find you the perfect car for your needs.
