No matter your needs, we’re sure to have something that’s right for you on our lot in Wilkes-Barre, PA. But what exactly should you be looking for when shopping for a pre-owned vehicle?

Benefits of Buying Used

While some drivers prefer to buy brand-new cars, there are many potential benefits to shopping for a used vehicle instead. Here are some reasons why it might be a good idea for you to purchase a used Genesis car.

  • Lower depreciation: When you buy a new car, the bulk of its drop in value happens in its first few years. Buying a used car means you can avoid this significant depreciation in value.
  • Wider selection: New cars limit you to a single model year. If you’re looking for options, a used car opens up more choices by letting you choose from multiple model years.
  • Save on cost: Of course, one of the most attractive parts about purchasing a used vehicle is the overall cost savings. Pre-owned vehicles tend to have much lower price tags than brand-new ones.

What to Look for When Buying Used

Shopping for a used vehicle at our Pennsylvania Genesis dealership is a bit different than shopping for a new car. There are a few things you’ll want to pay extra attention to, to ensure you’re getting a quality vehicle.

Mileage is always a big factor to look out for. Cars with extremely high mileage tend to have more wear and tear than a car with lower mileage would, and they might require larger repairs sooner.

Body condition and signs of rust are also important to look for in a pre-owned vehicle. Check to make sure the vehicle has not been in an accident with a prior owner, as this can sometimes lead to larger issues down the road.
