It’s important that you get a vehicle history report and thoroughly research the history of the car you’re interested. A vehicle history report provides crucial information like auto service records, accident history, recorded mileage, and more.
Myth #3: There's no need for a test drive.
FALSE! Before you sign on the dotted line for any vehicle, you should always take it for a test drive. Getting behind the wheel and out on the road is important to making sure you are comfortable in this car. It’s also important to know whether the car is truly reliable and quality. When you take a test drive, pay attention to the way the car accelerates, brakes, turns, and handles overall.
Myth #4: You can bring the car back in three days if you don't like it.
FALSE! A lot of people believe that you can bring a car back to a dealership if you decide you don’t like it. This is often not true. Dealerships have laws and regulations they must abide by. To avoid being stuck with a car you don’t like, you should ensure that it’s the right ride for you before you sign! This includes taking it for a lengthy test drive and examining the interior and exterior before you buy.
