How Many Kilometres are on the Odometer?

The main way people determine how old a vehicle is is by looking at the model year. However, that might not tell a potential buyer the whole story. An older vehicle with relatively few kilometres recorded could be a better buy than a newer model with a lot of kilometres driven. This is also a good segue into asking about the car’s maintenance history.

How Many Owners Has the Car Had?

A vehicle that has changed hands many times could be a red flag in terms of chronic maintenance issues. Additionally, the more owners a vehicle has, the more difficult it will be to get a picture of how the vehicle was maintained or if it has been involved in any accidents.

Is the Warranty Being Carried Over?

Every new vehicle sold comes with a warranty that covers several major components and systems that are limited by years or kilometres driven. However, if that vehicle changes hands, that warranty can still be active if the time or distance limits are not reached. Getting a used vehicle that still has some original manufacturer’s warranty protections remaining is a great deal that buyers should consider. Of course, only if the platform remains in their price range.

Can I See the CarFax Report?

There is a system in place to protect buyers from taking home lemons. CarFax vehicle history reports come with every car, truck, or SUV that is for sale at Davey Auto Sales. This will give potential buyers a snapshot of nearly the vehicle’s entire life, including reported accidents and open manufacturer recalls.
