Used Audi Five Tips For Buying
As much as we would all like to buy a brand new Audi, sometimes it makes more economical sense for you to purchase a used Audi instead. After all, you're still buying an Audi, right?
There are some important things to think about before you go out and buy a used car. If you're an expert in this, I'd love for you to share a comment and offer your own thoughts or tips.
Here are my 5 tips:
1. If you're buying from a private seller, ask to see receipts for any repairs that were done to the vehicle. This will give you an idea of how much maintenance has gone into the car and the costs involved.
2. Do your due diligence and compare prices online. You can use sites like www.buyacar.co.uk to find out if there are other people selling the particular model you’re interested in and what it’s being valued at.
3. Read online reviews of the model you’re interested. Audi cars come with a wide variety of features that you may be able to do without if you’re on a budget. Don’t just read reviews published by car magazines. Make sure to check out Audi forums and blogs as well.
4. If your concern is the reliability of the car, you may want to consider purchasing a certified pre-owned Audi from a dealership. This means that you will have a car that has passed a 300+ inspection, plus you’ll get a limited warranty and any other bonuses the dealership wants to throw in. Keep in mind that you may pay a little more than if you were to buy from a private seller, but at least you’ll have some peace of mind.
5. If you do decide to buy an Audi from a private seller, have your mechanic do a thorough check of the car. Also, take an extended test drive on various roadways and highways.
When buying a used Audi, the more thorough you are with your research, the more confident and empowered you will feel when it comes to making the actual purchase
