1. No Accidents

Accidents come in many shapes and forms. From simple fender benders to the worst case scenario, a salvage title. Different accidents have different effects on the long-term survivability of a car.

Tip #1 It is important to note that many accidents that occur aren’t even reported to insurance companies. In situations like this, even companies such as Carfax will not have any data logged for said accident. This is why it is imperative to perform an accident check prior to purchasing a used car.

2. The Importance of Highway Miles

When looking for a used car, people most commonly look for cars with the lowest number of miles on the odometer. It is only natural to assume that the lower the mileage a car has, the better chance the car has less wear and tear. This being said, there is one major flaw in this assumption, the way in which the car was driven plays a crucial role in the potential lifespan of the car.

Tip #2: When a car gathers a lot of city miles (driving in the city), the car never has the chance to properly warm up essential engine parts, putting a heavy strain on said parts. This eventually leads to additional wear and tear and future, potentially very expensive repairs.

There are several other factors that you are going to want to know about, which you can read about here.

  1. I like that you suggest getting an accident check before buying a pre-owned car. My daughter is turning 16 next month, and my wife and I want to buy her a cheap car that she can drive through the rest of high school. I will keep this in mind while we are picking the best car for her.

  2. It makes sense that you said that the way the car is driven is what is important. I drive in the city a lot so it will put more strain on parts of my car. I will make sure when I look for a car to consider the way it was driven.

  3. It’s good that you mentioned to buy used cars during the weekdays instead of during the weekend. My wife and I are looking to get our son his first car and we want to get a car for as cheap as possible. I’ll be sure to go with my wife and son to a dealership on a weekday instead of a weekend.

  4. That’s interesting that the day you buy the car could affect the price. I feel like it would be good to do some research to see when the prices are lowest if you are planning on getting a new car. I’ll have to make sure to do that when it comes time to replace my old car with a new used one.

This will be my brother’s first car so I will try and find one that is dealer-maintained so that he can hopefully get good deals when it’ll need maintenance.

  7. My son has been saving up for a long time and wants to buy his first car. I’ll let him know that it’s important for him to check the car history to make sure there are no accidents in it’s past. Accidents can cause serious issues with cars and limit the number of miles you can get out of them.

  8. I like how you mentioned that you should find a used car that is dealer maintained. My wife and I are wanting to get another car and we were wondering what we should look for. I’ll be sure to look for a used car that is dealer maintained.
