In the market for a used car? You never just want to jump into a big purchase willy-nilly, which is why doing some thorough research is important. These are the areas you’ll want to pay close attention to for your used car search:

Start with the Body Style

The first thing to consider is the kind of car you’re looking for, and this could depend on the room you need. If it’s just you or one other person, a sedan or hatchback may be the right fit.

If, however, this will be a family vehicle or you will need to travel with a bunch of people, a used SUV is probably the better option.

Think of Your Requirements

In addition to enough space for you and your passengers, think about the other areas that are important to you. This could include things like smartphone connectivity, advanced safety features, or perhaps a 4-wheel drivetrain.

Once you have your must-haves, you can then start narrowing down your choices.

Check Out the Different Price Points

The nice thing about looking for a used car is that you have a lot of options when it comes to price. At Scott Lot, in addition to our regular used inventory, we also have a special section of cars priced under $10,000.

We also sell certified pre-owned models. While generally more expensive than used vehicles, they come with warranties and have to pass a comprehensive inspection to qualify.

Now that you know how to get started with your research, take a look at our big selection of used vehicles. When you find a few you like, come down to our dealership near Lehigh Valley to take some test drives.
