Tips for buying a used car

If you’re in the market for your next used motor, it can be hard to know where to start and what to look out for. At Oodle Cars, we have years of experience in the motor trade and have put together our top tips for buying a used car.


When looking for your next vehicle, one of the biggest things to consider is the size of the car. Do you need something to accommodate a large family, or is it just you and your dog? It is easy to get carried away when you see a car you like but it needs to be an appropriate size for your lifestyle.


What will you be using your car for on a daily basis? Whether you’ll be doing a lengthy commute or nipping to the shops and the school run, the car you choose will be very different. From a car designed for city life to something that can tackle rugged roads at the weekend, consider what you will be using the car for and what will serve you best.


You need to have a clear budget in mind before you start your search and stick to what you have agreed. Whether you opt to buy with cash or have a monthly figure in mind for finance, being strict with what you can afford is key to finding a suitable vehicle.


When choosing your next car, consider the cost of maintenance on the vehicle and the upkeep. You don’t want your car to spend more time in the garage than it does on the road, plus you don’t want to leave a hole in your pocket with the mounting costs.

There are just a few of our tips on things to consider when buying your next motor. If you’re looking for a used car in Abingdon, get in touch with the team at Oodle Cars who will be able to assist you in your search.
