When buying a used luxury car, there are many important elements to consider. Corvettes, like all pre-owned cars, have their specific set of points to check before putting forth the money to buy it. Without checking these elements on a used Chevy Corvette, you could be making a buying decision that you will hastily regret. Consider these tips before making your decision.
Looking for a used car generally does not involve going to one dealership and buying the cheapest one. There are a few things to consider beforehand. The most important is where you are buying the car. Many think auctions will warrant you the best price, but without being able to test drive the vehicle, you could very well drive off the lot and have the engine drop out with no way of remedying it except through more out of pocket expense. Search for a car from a private seller that you can test drive, or better yet, from a used car dealership that provides some sort of used car warranty. This last option will ensure that your used vehicle has been inspected and will offer no surprises down the road.
Look into the vehicle’s past
First, check the car for any previous damage. You can use AutoCheck to see if your prospective used car has been kept up. You can check things like tire wear, too, not only to ensure that the car has not been raced, but also to ensure that you don’t have to buy a brand new set of Corvette tires that can be fairly pricey. Mileage is less important on newer Corvettes because of the vehicle’s superior design, but still be aware of the number. Finally, as always, get a mechanic familiar with the vehicle to inspect it for any flaws or shortcomings.
Make sure the vehicle has the features you want. This will ensure that you are not left with buyer’s remorse. When buying a Corvette, you want to consider that it is not just the Corvette you are buying—that it might eventually be the Corvette you are selling and, therefore, you want to buy the best that you can afford. It will be worth it in the end when you are driving it as well.
