Benefits of Buying a Used Car
When you buy a used Honda, you're not losing as much resale value due to depreciation as you would when you buy new. You can also request a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report to get a clear view of the ownership and service history of the vehicle. Plus, you can often afford a higher trim than you'd be able to when buying new. That means that you can take advantage of even more premium amenities and features! We pride ourselves on providing a transparent car-buying experience, so our used Honda sales experts are available to answer all your questions and go over any details of the report with you. Always buy confidently when you do business with Honda of Jasper.
Buying a Used Car Checklist
Check for Exterior Damage
When you're shopping for a used Honda, be sure to do a thorough examination of the vehicle's exterior. Look for things such as scratches, rusting or dents -- our team members will also make note of any exterior damage.
Examine the Interior
Do you have specific features you prefer, such as a leather interior or cloth bucket seats? Whichever you desire, make sure to check for any stains on the interior or rips in the upholstery and bring it to our attention so we can make note of it.
Consider the Total Mileage
When shopping for a used Honda nearby, you should consider how long and how far you plan on driving your vehicle. For this, check the odometer and ensure the vehicle's mileage is what you’re looking for.
Take a Test-Drive
When you’ve found the Honda you want, then it's time for a test-drive! Taking a Honda test-drive will tell you more about the performance and handling than what the specs sheet will be able to.
Listen to the Engine, Brakes & More
Is the engine properly changing gears? Are the brakes making noise when you press down on the pedal? While you take a used Honda test-drive, it’s important to keep an ear out for any abnormal noises. If you hear or feel anything weird while you drive, let our team know so we can take care of any necessary repairs.
