Things to Know When Shopping for a Pre-Owned Car
Shopping for cars can get overwhelming and even more stressful if you’ve decided buying a pre-owned vehicle is for you. You want to make sure that you are getting a car that still works like new, from a Hyundai dealer you can trust. O'Brien Hyundai of Normal can help you take the guess – and stress – out of car buying.
Online Vehicle Research
An important step in car buying is doing your research. In fact, we encourage you to shop online for pre-owned Hyundai cars before even coming to the dealership. Rather than looking at what you think is your dream car, look at the features you need out of a vehicle. Do you want a spacious sedan like the Hyundai Elantra or prefer to get off road in the Hyundai Santa Fe? Do you need optimal fuel efficiency? Or the best in technology? Refine your search before deciding which car is best for you.
Make sure you are also looking for a car within your budget. You can even apply for credit online at our Hyundai finance center to see what you will get approved for. Then, utilize our payment calculator to make sure the monthly payment works for you. Don’t forget to get an estimate on your trade-in value to see what you’ll have to put down, in addition to anything you’re willing to bring to the table.
Pre-Owned vs. Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned
You may also opt for a certified pre-owned Hyundai car, rather than a pre-owned vehicle. Our certified pre-owned vehicles are backed with a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. They are also safety assured with a 72-point inspection from an ASE-certified technician. However, if you can’t quite stretch your budget as far, a pre-owned model is still a great option and still thoroughly inspected to make sure it meets our standards – and yours.
