Buying a used car from the same person you drove it from is quite common, and while this may sound like it could save you money, it may not be the case. First off, by driving it back to your home where you can make any needed repairs, there is the possibility that someone else caused some of those problems in their drive home, where they could have inspected them more closely. If the repairs needed were not made, the car could turn out to be a lemon.
Secondly, some vehicles may have been sold prior to a recall being issued. The owner may not have found out about that recall until after they had sold the vehicle. Even if the recall was not an issue, there might be something else wrong that was overlooked. It is important to do your homework on any used cars in phoenix you’re interested in buying.
Tesla Model S owners are very aware of what to look for. They know that they have a great deal of peace of mind when buying a used Tesla directly from the company or Tesla-certified dealerships. If a company loses their certification, it will be held accountable for any problems with the vehicle and taken off the market. And if you are buying from another Tesla-certified dealership, know that the price does not include whatever warranty procedures your own state requires, and you must agree to their insurance coverage which is different than what federal law requires for extended warranties on new vehicles. The word ‘certified’ means to the owner that something is recognized as official, trustworthy, and dependable.

No matter what your reason is for wanting to buy used cars, it is important that you do not buy one without making sure it has not had any major damage in the past year or so.
