Finding a dealer for used cars can be a challenge. Car dealers have a bad reputation, but there are some reputable dealers out there and it's not hard to find one.
Use online reviews, recommendations from friends and family, equipment options and dealer prices to help you choose a good dealer for your next used car. You can also use the most popular instant digital vehicle appraisal software via Appraisee for used car appraisal software.
One of the first places to look for a local car dealer is online. This can reduce your list significantly once you start reading online reviews. Some used car dealers have a bad reputation and you can immediately see who they are and remove them from your list.
A few bad reviews shouldn't rule out the retailer completely, but if the majority is negative then it should be taken as a red flag.
Another great place to find a reputable used car dealer is with friends and family. Just ask these people where they bought their vehicle and if they would buy it again from the same dealer. People love to talk about their bad experiences, and if anyone you ask has seen a dealer, I'm sure they will. People also love to spread the word about great customer experiences and you're sure to hear about it.
After narrowing down your list a bit, you can take a look at what amenities used car dealers offer. You don't want a retailer with very few inventory options. You don't need to have the largest inventory, but you don't want to be limited either. No matter what type of vehicle you are considering, you want to have a wide range and many different manufacturers.
