On a budget but in need of a new vehicle? Buying a used car is a great alternative to buying something brand new. Although some customers are nervous about purchasing used (as they're afraid to find underlying issues with the car), you can have peace of mind when you buy from us. Here at Roc E-Z Auto, we thoroughly inspect every used vehicle that comes onto our lot, so you can rest assured you're getting a quality car, truck or SUV. Most shoppers have plenty of questions about pre-owned cars, so we've listed the most common questions below. Keep reading to learn more! (And be sure to check out our specials!)


What's the difference between used and CPO?

Certified Pre-Owned, or CPO, is a vehicle that has been rigorously inspected to meet brand standards, and any issues found are repaired. These vehicles must also meet particular criteria, such as age and mileage limits, in order to be considered certified. They also tend to be slightly more expensive than regular used cars due to these strict standards.


What should I watch out for in a used car?

First, you should check the exterior for any major or extensive damage. While most used vehicles will have a few scratches or small dents, you should still look for anything major. Afterwards, take the vehicle for a test drive. While you're driving, listen for any mechanical issues such as squealing brakes. You can also ask for a CARFAX History Report.


How do I know that I'm getting a good deal?

Look up the make and model on KBB.com. You'll be able to see the vehicle's approximate value compared to the offered price.


Why should I buy from a dealership?

A private party or secondhand shop doesn't have the ability to offer the same perks as a dealership, nor can they offer Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Plus, a dealership like ours can help you get financing if you need it. We also inspect every used vehicle that comes onto our lot to be sold, so you can have peace of mind when buying used from us.


What are the benefits of buying a used car?

When buying used, you can get a spectacular car for a great price. When buying new, on the other hand, you'll have to pay more for upgrades like a better stereo system, whereas you can spend much less for the same or similar upgrades on a slightly older model. You're also less likely to be hit with major depreciation like with a new vehicle.
