Buying a used car

This article will help you find your next used car at Ringways Leeds and Doncaster.

If you’re thinking about buying a used car we’re sure to have the one for you, here are some tips to look out for when you visit our Leeds or Doncaster dealerships.

Are you looking at buying a used car but not sure where to start or what to look for? Don’t worry; our dedicated used car team have the following TOP TIPS when buying a used car….

Buying a used car is a great way of cutting the cost of your driving as most new cars lose around 40% of their value in the first year. But there are risks so it’s important to take your time, study as many used cars as you can and try to buy with your head rather than your heart.

Do your homework

Check used car specifications and compare similar cars so you know as much about the features of different cars so they suit your requirements.

Budget carefully

Used cars generally retail at a lower price; we suggest getting insurance quotes and checking car tax rates.

View the car in good light and weather

It may prove difficult in Leeds and Doncaster, but viewing car in poor weather means you won’t be able to check the condition of the car properly. If it’s wet – water hides scratches, dents and other problems. Make sure you can see the car clearly and from all angles.

Ask about the history

Most used cars have had some work done to them and may require more done in the future so make sure you consider the cost to repair a used car, as well as servicing and MOT costs. To put your mind at ease, at Ringways we have a unique value plus scheme. Some of the features include FREE MOT for life and up to 20% off your servicing.

Take a Test Drive

The test drive is your only opportunity to check the car’s general mechanical condition and to find out for sure that it meets all your needs:

• Is the driving position comfortable?

• Can you reach/operate all the controls easily?

• Do the child seats fit?

• Is the boot big enough?
