Not sure what to expect from the process? Here’s a quick guide to buying your first used car in Mercedes, Texas:

Figure out what you want

The market is saturated with options, so it’s good to narrow down your search. Do you need a fuel-efficient economy car? Do you need the interior space of an SUV for pets, regular travel, or perhaps a family you’re planning? Ever need to haul anything with a pickup truck?

Other questions to consider: Are there any brands you’re particularly attracted to? Do you have certain safety criteria the vehicle needs to meet? How much can you afford?

Build your budget

That last question brings us to an important step: determining what you can spend. If you are paying out of pocket, you can build a max budget based on that. If you plan to finance, start by going to your bank to see what kind of loan you can be approved for.

Test-drive your top options

Review our online inventory to find vehicles you want to learn more about. Once you have narrowed down your options, stop in for a test drive to see which feels like the winner to you. You should always check the vehicle history report for a car you are seriously considering and have a trusted mechanic give it a thorough inspection.
