Used Car Buying FAQs


Buying a used car is exciting. It’s also a big decision. Anytime you make a big decision like that, it’s normal to have a few questions. To help drivers in Aiken and Graniteville, SC, with shopping for a used car, Miracle Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram decided to answer some used car buying FAQs.


Upside to Buying a Used Car

What’s the Upside to Buying a Used Car?

Used cars are an excellent alternative to buying new cars. They feature a similar style, often include some of the same features, and they offer great value. This gives you a reliable way to get the car, truck, or SUV that you’re interested in.


Are Used Cars in Good Condition?

Every used car on our lot is kept in good condition by the highly trained and certified technicians in our service center. They provide routine maintenance and repairs for all our used cars. Plus, they install Mopar® Performance Parts that were designed for that make and model, so everything will be as good as new.


Is it Better to Buy a Used Car from the Owner or a Dealership?

Buying your used car from a dealership offers some key advantages. For starters, you can be confident that you’re getting a fair rate. Rather than relying on the previous owner to set the price for you, we pay close attention to fair market value.

We’re also committed to being upfront and honest with you about the vehicle’s service history. With our service center and high-quality parts, you can also feel good about the condition that the car is in.

Not only that, but if you’re trading in your car, our finance center can step in and apply the value of it toward the purchase of the used car that you’re interested in. Essentially, buying from a used car dealership is safe, simple, and streamlined.


Used vs CPO

What’s the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned Cars?

Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles are held to a strict set of standards. These requirements vary by brand, but typically these models are only a few years old, have low mileage, and must pass a thorough inspection. Used cars aren’t held to the same standards. However, we strive to keep both our used and CPO inventory in top shape.


Is Buying a Used Car Different Than Buying a New One?

The process of buying a used car is actually the same as buying a new one. You’ll apply for an auto loan, put a down payment on the car, then start making monthly payments until the vehicle has been paid off. Our finance center can work with you every step of the way to negotiate a fair rate.


How Can I Learn More About a Used Car?

Before you buy a used car, you’ll want to learn everything you can about its background. We make it easy to do your homework by offering a free CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™. This comprehensive report includes a rundown of its service history and a profile on its previous owner. Just click on the used car that you’re interested in, and you can read the report in no time.
