Not all used cars are perfect. We want to help Winston Salem motorists find a gem when purchasing a pre-owned car from Greensboro Auto Center. That's why we've put together a helpful used car checklist discussing items you should be aware of and questions you need to ask.

What's the Status of the Car Title?

Asheboro drivers should steer clear from damage-related titles that have been declared total losses by an insurance company. Warning signs on car titles include:

  • Junk
  • Flood
  • Fire
  • Salvage
  • Recall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
  • Outstanding Liens

Has the Car Been In An Accident?

Minor collisions are one thing, but severe collisions and multiple accidents raises a red flag. The car's accident history can be found in a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report to inform High Point shoppers.

How Many Owners Has the Used Car Had?

Wise Winston Salem drivers will want a used car that's been driven by the fewest number of owners. At Greensboro Auto Center, we strongly suggest buying CARFAX 1-Owner Cars. Most used cars that have two to four owners are still safe buys. Surpassing four owners, or multiple ownership transfers within only a few years, is another red flag.

How Many Miles Has the Used Car Been Driven?

Greensboro shoppers shouldn't buy a used car that's been driven considerably more than 12,000 miles per year. These used cars suffer greater wear and tear. Used cars with fewer miles on the odometer will last you longer. Pre-owned vehicles that are driven fewer than 12,000 miles per year offer more value and greater dependability.

What Else Winston Salem Car Shoppers Should Check Before Buying a Used Vehicle

  • Maintenance Records
  • Vehicle History Report — from CARFAX® or AutoCheck®
  • Multi-Point Inspection report has been passed knowing all systems & parts are working
  • Why the previous owner sold or traded in the used vehicle
  • Any outstanding or existing warranties still effective on the used car
  • Take a test drive around Greensboro to make sure the used car isn't a clunker
