March 18th, 2020 by

We love our lineup of the new 2020 Hyundai models here at Woodhouse Hyundai of Omaha. However, we know that not every driver in the Omaha, NE area is looking for a new 2020 Hyundai model. In fact, a lot of drivers these days are looking to buy a pre-owned SUV.

What to Look For in A Pre-Owned SUV

Buying a pre-owned SUV is an extremely viable option when it comes to car shopping. After all, used vehicles come with many benefits ranging from lower costs to greater value. So, what do you look for in a used car?

As your Omaha Hyundai dealership, we’re here to help by providing a quick used car checklist of the main areas you’ll want to check out in your pre-owned SUV.

Firstly, start big by examining both the exterior and interior of the car. Do a walk around your vehicle and take anything we can repair before you complete your purchase.  You’ll also want to check the tires and lights to ensure you don’t need us to make any replacements. As for the interior, it’s mostly the same. You’ll want to look for damage and signs of wear. Try out all the seats, taking the time to sit in different positions.

Next, you’ll want to make sure everything under the hood is in order. You don’t need to be an expert here, but check the belts and hoses, as well as all your fluids. If everything looks good, take the car for a test drive. One of the best ways to see if a vehicle is right for you is to drive it. Try out a variety of roads to get the best sense of its capabilities.

Finally, you’ll want to see if you can get a vehicle history report before buying. The history report is extremely valuable as it gives you vital information from mileage to damage. Of course, as your Omaha Hyundai dealer, we’re always here to walk you through the process, and we’re dedicated to helping you find the perfect used car for you.
