Common Mistakes When Buying Pre-owned Vehicles in Manchester

Don’t Make One of These Mistakes When Looking at Pre-Owned Vehicles in Manchester:

Mistake #1: Mistaking outward appearance for true quality.

If you’re looking at used vehicles, you may be tempted to think that buying from a private owner is the best way to go. Unfortunately, that ‘garage-kept car owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church’ is just a pipe dream. Most privately owned used vehicles are really other drivers’ mechanical problems, and unless you want to inherit those problems, you’ll have to perform due diligence to keep that from happening.

All of our vehicles at Merchants Auto have been thoroughly inspected by our technicians and put through a rigorous 128-point safety inspection to ensure they’ll provide years of value to our customers. It takes a lot for a vehicle to pass our inspection process, but once it does, its new owner can rest easy knowing every major and minor system in the vehicle has been gone through with a fine tooth comb.

Mistake #2: Thinking that all pre-owned vehicles in Manchester are pretty much the same.

You may think that it doesn’t make that much of a difference where you purchase your next vehicle, but the fact is, it matters a great deal if you plan on driving it for any length of time. Our vehicles at Merchants Auto are protected by our Merchants Pledge and backed by our signature 3-part guarantee that includes Certified Quality, our 5-Day Vehicle Exchange, and our 30-Day Limited Warranty. Visit our Merchants Pledge page online to find out more about how you’re protected under these programs.

We’re interested in more than just selling you a car at Merchants Auto. Our first commitment is to your satisfaction with the vehicle you’ve chosen. That’s why our sales staff will go to great lengths to help you locate the right vehicle for your needs- one that will fit your budget and offer the space, fuel economy, features, and safety you deserve. We invite you to come down and test drive any vehicle we have for sale.

Mistake #3: Buying the first vehicle that comes along.

It’s easy to make a snap decision, especially if you’ve been looking at vehicles for some time. You may decide to settle for a vehicle that doesn’t really meet your needs but seems to be in better shape compared with others you’ve looked at. Don’t make the same mistake so many car buyers before you have made. Stop by Merchants Auto and select from the best pre-owned vehicles in Manchester.

In the event that you do make a snap decision that doesn’t end up meeting your needs, we offer a 5-day exchange for another comparably valued vehicle on our lot. You don’t even have to tell us the reason you want to trade it in. At Merchants Auto, we’re not happy unless our customers are thoroughly satisfied with their vehicles- and we’ll do everything in our power to make that happen.
