What Do I Need to Know Before Buying a Used Car?

Buying a Used Car Doesn't Have to Be Tricky—At Mazda Gallery, We Make It Easy to Get Both Quality & Value

Plenty of drivers know us as the place-to-go for a new Mazda car, crossover, or SUV, but what if you're looking for a great used car in Quincy or Wellesley, MA? Well we're a great place to go for used vehicles, too! At Mazda Gallery, we take pride in serving the greater Boston area, whether that's with our new Mazda inventory or our high-quality pre-owned inventory.

As you're looking around some of our featured pre-owned vehicles, keep these three tips in mind about buying a used car from Mazda Gallery in Norwood, MA:

Used Car-Buying Tips:

  1. Know the Value of Your Trade-In Vehicle: If you're planning on trading-in your current vehicle as part of your down payment, it's helpful to know what your trade-in is worth before you start shopping for your next used vehicle. Not sure how to figure that out? We've got you covered. Take advantage of our trade-in appraisal tool to get a sense of what your current vehicle is worth. When you know how much you can trade your current vehicle in for, it can help you better plan your financing, giving you more confidence and freedom to shop once you arrive in the dealership.
  2. Know the Car's History Before You Buy: Before you sign on the dotted line for any used vehicle, you're going to want to know a little about where it's been. At Mazda Gallery, we provide a FREE CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ whenever there's one available; many of our used vehicles show a 1-owner history, but you can learn all about where your used vehicle has been before you decide where you'll both be going.
  3. Know What Your Budget Is: If you've never owned a vehicle before, buying a used vehicle can be a big unknown; it's important to get a sense of what your budget is before you come into the showroom to shop so that you can focus on vehicles that meet your needs and keep you in-budget. We recommend spending some time with our Payment Calculator to see what your monthly payments might look like. You can adjust factors like down payment or loan term to find the parameters that best meet your needs. You know what they say: knowledge is power!

With so many high-quality, high-value vehicles for Natick drivers to choose from, we're confident you'll find your perfect match—then take advantage of the used-car buying tools we mentioned above to make sure you're well prepared when you come in to find your next daily driver at Mazda Gallery.
