How To Buy A Used SUV

Are you in the market for a used SUV for sale near you? If this is your first time buying an SUV, or even if you’ve owned an SUV before, the sheer amount of variety offered with today’s SUVs can be overwhelming. With so many different options to choose from, finding the perfect SUV for you can be difficult at times. Fortunately, a little research and preparation can go a long way in terms of helping you to find the SUV that suits you.

As a certified Elkhart car dealership, we at USA-1 have a thorough understanding of how to fit any SUV into any lifestyle. For this reason, we have compiled a list of every factor you should consider when determining the right used SUV for you.

1. Budget

One of the most important steps to take when looking at any used car for sale near you is to determine how much you are willing to spend. To do this, you should calculate a budget based on your financial situation and every cost that comes with buying a car. These costs can be seen listed below:

  • Vehicle Cost
  • Registration
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance
  • Fuel
  • Taxes/Initial Fees

Upon determining a budget, you will then be able to refine your search down to specifically used SUVs for sale near you that are within your price range.

2. SUV Size

Whether you are shopping with our Elkhart car dealership or any other SUV dealer near you, you will likely notice that there are many different sizes of SUVs. Each size features different utilities, and your lifestyle will be the primary factor in determining which size is right for you. For example, if you have a large family, you may want to opt for a full-sized SUV. Every SUV size can be seen listed below:

  • Subcompact
  • Compact
  • Mid-Size/Crossover
  • Full-Size

3. Passenger And Cargo Capacity

As mentioned above, the size of used SUVs for sale near you will determine certain features of each SUV. If passenger or cargo space is a priority to you, mid-size and full-size SUVs are the most accommodating option in terms of interior space, holding up to eight passengers in some models.

4. Choose Your Wheel Drive System

Another important factor to consider when searching for a used SUV for sale is the wheel drive system. There are three different wheel drive systems from which you can choose: 2WD, AWD, and 4WD. The system for you will depend on how you intend to use an SUV. For example, if you plan to do a lot of off-roading, you should look into SUVs with 4WD. On the other hand, if you plan to stay on the road, 2WD SUVs have much better fuel efficiency.

5. Safety

Safety is paramount with used SUVs near you, especially if you plan to have family in your SUV. Fortunately, SUVs are some of the safest vehicles on the market due to their reliable construction and advanced safety features. Below, you can look at some of the most common safety features featured on vehicles at our Elkhart car dealership or any other reputable car dealership:

  • Forward Collision Warning w/ Pedestrian Detection
  • Auto E-Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning

6. Fuel Efficiency

Something you likely consider important while browsing used cars in Elkhart or anywhere else is fuel efficiency, especially with today’s rising gas prices. Luckily, most SUVs have made leaps and bounds in terms of fuel efficiency. However, most full-sized SUVs are still lacking in terms of fuel economy due to their large size. From mid-sized SUVs and below, there are some amazing options to save money at the pump. With hybrid options among most SUV models as well, you can stretch your gas tank more than ever before in an SUV.
