When it comes to buying your next used car, you want to make sure you're properly prepared so that the process goes as smoothly as possible. Therefore, Century Automotive created this helpful used car buying checklist to help ensure you're making a well-informed final decision about the right car for you. Car buyers in Huntsville, Florence, and Cullman should carefully read through our checklist and visit our dealership today for further assistance.

Do Your Research

The first step in the used car buying process is to do your research. There are many cars out there and doing the proper research before you visit the dealership allows you to narrow down your options based on which models are best suited for your lifestyle. Browse our current used inventory online to see what popular models are available like the Land Rover Discovery and Volvo XC60. Once you find a model that appeals to you, conduct some research on the different features and performances to ensure it offers what you're looking for. Then, visit our showroom to meet with a member of our sales team to learn more about your desired ride.

Compare Used vs Certified Pre-Owned

When buying a used vehicle, you have the option to select a certified pre-owned model. Cars earning this exclusive title have strict requirements on model year and mileage and must undergo a series of rigorous inspections to guarantee they're in peak condition. Certified models also come with additional perks like a limited warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance. So, before you drive away in your next car, consider if this program is right for you.

Take a Test Drive

Once you've found a car that interests you, like the BMW 3 Series, it's important to take it for a test drive to verify it offers the refined performance and handling you're looking for. One of our sales team members will take you for a test drive of any cars of your choosing and show you any features you're interested in, to help give you a complete look at your next ride.

Learn About Your Financing Options

Visit our auto finance center to meet with a member of our sales team who'll explore your different finance options. Then, browse our inventory with a better understanding of which vehicles are a good match for your lifestyle needs. Our financiers are committed to helping you in any way we can, so reach out to us today with any questions and concerns you may have.
