Used Car Buying FAQs


Used Car Buying FAQs

Buying a used vehicle can be challenging at first, which is why we’ve written answers to some frequently asked questions about buying a used car. At Miracle Toyota, we want all our customers to be well-informed when they make their final decision.

We look forward to our customers near Haines City, Lakeland, and Loughman, FL, learning from our collected used car buying FAQs!


FAQ 1: Is the Car on the Lot?

While simple, this question is important to ask if you’ve been browsing online. Sometimes it might happen that the website hasn’t been updated in time with the goings on of the lot, so the used car you checked out is no longer available. That’s why you should always call ahead and inquire about it before making a trip to the lot itself.

FAQ 2: What is the Mileage? How Many Times Has it Been Test Driven?

This two-in-one question asks about the accumulated mileage the used car has. Depending on its age, you’ll want the amount of mileage to be as low as possible so that you know you’re getting a used vehicle without much wear and tear on it. Knowing how many times it has been test-driven helps build on that previous statistic because you can add those additional miles to the total.


FAQ 3: What are Acceptable Payment Terms?

This is a question to direct to the financial center. The team of financial professionals inside is ready and waiting to get to work one-on-one with you about this. Using information about you and your circumstances, they’ll work up a payment plan that’s built to satisfy your needs while making it realistically affordable for you. They’ll also reach out to their network of lenders and creditors in order to secure you the best terms and rates.

FAQ 4: Will They Accept Your Current Car as a Trade-In?

This question can usually be answered before even getting to the dealership’s lot. If you check their suite of online financial tools, they generally should have a ‘value my trade’ type tool for you to use. While there are differences between dealerships, the unifying factor is that each will accept your trade-in for credit, which you can put towards a new used car.

FAQ 5: Do They Have a CARFAX® Report?

Make sure you enquire about this within the first few minutes of discussing the used vehicle with a sales team member. You’ll want to know if there has been any flooding or accident damage suffered by the vehicle in the past that could affect its performance today. Additionally, knowing its history also lets you know what kind of owners it has previously had, which serves to give you an idea of how it was treated.
