How to Prepare to Buy a Pre-Owned Vehicle

February 17th, 2020 by

Even when they say they want a new Hyundai model, buying a new vehicle isn’t a wise move for every driver. Buying a pre-owned model is sometimes the smarter move.

Pre-owned cars are more reliable today than they’ve ever been, so buying a pre-owned vehicle doesn’t carry the same risks as it did decades ago. Plus, vehicles often go several years between redesigns, so there might not be too much that’s changed from one model-year to another, which can make it difficult for even discerning onlookers to tell the difference between new and pre-owned cars that share the same model name.

You should do some prep work if you’re going to buy or lease a new vehicle, you should do the same when you’re in the market for a previously owned automobile. The first thing you should do is prepare a budget.

As a general rule, it’s wise to devote no more than 20 percent of your net monthly income to your car payment. If the pre-owned car you want to get is no longer covered by a warranty, you may want to dedicate less to your car payment and save the difference so you’ll have funds available if your automobile needs a repair. For help figuring out an affordable payment, you can use the Payment Calculator on our website!

Once your budget is done, it’s time to apply for financing. The experts in our Hyundai finance center work with a network of proven lenders you can trust.
