Used Car Buying FAQ

Which Used Car Brand Should I Buy?

We are partial to our selection of used Subaru cars and SUVs in Georgetown, TX because the brand holds its value well and are often seen running the roads with well over 200,000 miles on the odometer. Other quality options are our selection of used Toyota models or Pre-Owned Ford vehicles.


Do Used Car Dealers Sell Lemons? How Can I Be Sure I'm Getting a Quality Model?

Each used vehicle we carry on our lot has been carefully inspected by our Subaru service center in Georgetown, TX to ensure it meets our high standards for quality. We never sell a product that we believe to be subpar or unworthy of our customers, and you can rely on us to go the distance to ensure your satisfaction and needs are met.


Can a Used Car Be Leased?

Used cars are only eligible for auto loans, since a lease refers to a brand-new model. With a lease, you're getting a new car every few years when your lease ends, but with a used Subaru auto loan, you either own it outright when the loan is paid, or you trade it in for another model using that vehicle towards the final value of your new vehicle.


What Are My Available Financing Terms? How Long Should I Have a Loan?

In many cases, you can finance your used car for up to 84 months, with a 72-month and 60-month loan being rather popular in Georgetown, TX. When considering these options, take into account how much your APR will be over these months, then give thought to keeping the loan at a reasonable length to avoid paying too much in interest over the life of the loan.


What Should I Look for in a Used Car?

When shopping for a pre-owned car or SUV near you, consider what model suits your overall lifestyle. A driver interested in commuting solo might not need an eight-passenger minivan in Georgetown, TX, while a driver who needs to seat six won't want to look at vehicles that cannot accommodate this many passengers. Next, look at the features. Do you have a list of features that your next used vehicle must have? Knowing what your dealbreakers are is key to finding the right vehicle. Next, you'll want to consider how much you can afford, which is where your credit score and down payment comes into play, but don't forget to factor in tax, if applicable. At the end of the day, it's up to you to decide how used Subaru cars compare to others on the market.


What Are My Used Car Down Payment Options?

We accept cash or credit/debit cards, as long as the Mastercard or Visa logo is on the card. How much you put down depends on your credit, the vehicle chosen, and what you feel you can afford at the time.


What Should I Expect When Buying a Used Car?

Once you've taken a test drive and decided which car you'd like to bring home, our financing team will require a few things from you:

  • Proof of residency to establish that you live where you say you do.
  • The title of your current vehicle, but if you are still paying on a loan, we can reach out to the company who is financing your loan and speak with them. Having your payoff amount is always helpful when negotiating.
  • Your driver's license is a must-have when buying a used car
  • Proof of insurance
  • Know your credit score and history - this will determine your APR and down payment amount
  • Have money for a down payment
  • A list of references in case the lenders want one

Are Used Car Prices Falling?

While used cars are already priced affordably, there has been a drop in their price recently. There are a lot of reasons for this trend, but due to this, you can take advantage of better prices than ever right here in Georgetown, TX.


Are Used Car Prices Negotiable?

Absolutely! We expect some haggling when the time comes to discuss paying for your next used vehicle, and that's why many cars are priced accordingly. When you look at the KBB value of a vehicle, there is a specific price range it will offer for the vehicle, and that takes into account that you'll be working to finance your vehicle on your terms.


Which Used Car Should I Buy?
