Your used car: the definitive guide

Every day more dealers join the digital transformation. Not only forced by new consumer trends but also trying to change that uncommendable stereotype that the car salesman has had over the years.

It is evident that a bad experience is shared 10 times more than a good one, but regardless of the specific cases; The advantages and disadvantages of buying used cars in modesto from a dealer are undeniable and here we are going to explain them to you.

Advantage #1: Insurable Vehicles

Insurability is a determining factor when choosing a vehicle, especially where 7 out of 10 vehicles are purchased on credit and insuring them is an obligation. This is why many dealers have adopted the insurability standard on their vehicles, leaving uninsurable vehicles out of their inventory or referenced as such.

The concept of insurability is obtained from a technical expert report that is carried out on the vehicle internally with the dealer’s experts or outsourced to companies. It is important to emphasize that these standards are imposed by insurers and they are ultimately responsible for validating the condition of the car before purchase.

Advantage #2: Ready to trade

A mandatory aspect for carrying out the transfer is that the vehicle is free of embargoes, arrest warrants, pledges, refrain from marketing, or other impediments.For vehicles purchased at a dealership, this is not a problem because they are all transferred to their name and any impediment was previously resolved.

Advantage #3: Advice on financing and insurance

For cases of purchases on credit, dealers have specialists who will advise you on the application of the same. In addition, you will be able to find staff from different financial institutions within their offices where you can submit your applications directly without having to go to the banks.

Similarly, they will advise you on insurance issues, where you can request quotes from multiple insurers from the same place. In the end, the dealer will handle the communication between the insurer and the financial institution.

Advantage #4: Warranty

Although the SIC does not oblige to give a guarantee for the sale of used vehicles, many dealers offer different protections as a benefit. One, which is common in all dealerships, is the documentary guarantee, that is, that the vehicle does not have any hidden defects and that the transfer is done correctly. Similarly, as all vehicles are appraised, many guarantee the condition of the engine and gearbox, obviously limited to certain months and under certain circumstances. Understandably, problems caused by misuse do not fall within the guarantee. There have been cases of claims for damage to the gearbox due to the inexperience of its new owner.
