When it comes to shopping for a used car, truck, or SUV, you usually have two aspects nailed to the tee: budget and brand. While those are two areas that are important to pinpoint, you now have to narrow down your choices. Past the price and brand, other areas to check when shopping for a used car should include past history, safety and technology features, and performance levels.

If you are left asking yourself “what are the most important features to look for in a used car”, you have come to the right place. Here at Gunn Buick GMC, we help outline the important details to look for in a used vehicle before you make any commitment or purchase.

Key Features of a Used Car

Past Ownership
One of the top priority things to look at when purchasing a used car is past ownership. Being a preowned vehicle, it is known that you are not the first owner. When learning more about the ownership you will want to know current gas mileage, any previous accidents, maintenance, or even if it was used for commercial or personal use. Luickly, here at Gunn Buick GMC, our used inventory comes with a CarFax history report for ownership transparency. 

Performance Levels
When it comes to inspecting the performance levels of a used vehicle, it is not just based around how it runs, but its capabilities with towing and payload, fuel economy, and safety. If your area of concern is towing or hauling, then you’re going to want to make sure the vehicle you are choosing is up to the task. Things like payload and towing capacities should be considered, along with the available horsepower and torque. Our towing capacity guide will be of great benefit to your search. For everyday use vehicle performance is going to be determined by what you plan on using it for and how long you expect it to last. Whether you plan to use it for off-roading, or daily commutes, learning more about the performance levels of your interested used vehicle is important to take into consideration.

Safety and Technology Features
Even as a used vehicle, our inventory offers San Antonio area drivers the latest modern features for an enhanced and safe riding experience. One of the many benefits of buying used include the access to several safety and technology features including, All-Wheel-Drive, forward collision warning, entertainment system, wireless charging, navigation system, three-row seating, and much more.
