With thousands and thousands of college students getting ready to graduate, we know that many people are already visiting dealerships throughout the country to look for new and pre-owned automobiles. If you live or attend school near our Jacksonville, FL Lexus dealership and you’re in the market for a vehicle, we encourage you to visit our convenient location because we have a great selection of new Lexus cars for sale.

If you’re interested in a pre-owned automobile, you should still visit Lexus of Jacksonville because we have a generous inventory of pre-owned Lexus vehicles. Buying a pre-owned car is similar to purchasing a new vehicle in many ways, but it’s very different in others. Because of the differences that exist between buying a new car and purchasing a previously owned one, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of tips for pre-owned car buyers.

If you’re looking for a previously owned vehicle, follow these tips as you shop:

  • Find a Reputable Dealer: While you’ll see ads for cars for sale by individuals on a lot of websites, your best bet for getting a reliable pre-owned car is to work with a reputable dealer like us to find one. When you buy a previously owned vehicle from us, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing our factory-trained technicians looked over your automobile to ensure it works properly. You’ll also enjoy knowing that you purchased a car from a Lexus dealer that continues to get rave reviews from its clients.
  • Bring Someone with You: It’s a good idea to bring someone with you when you’re shopping for a pre-owned car. That’s because your buddy may notice something about the automobile you’re thinking about getting that you overlooked.
  • Test Drive the Car in Real Life Conditions: Test driving a pre-owned car in the conditions you normally drive in is critical to ensure the vehicle can do everything you need it to do. Take the car on the highway and drive long enough to ensure all of its systems work properly, including the heat and air conditioning.
  • Bring the Ad with You: If you saw what you think is a great deal for a pre-owned automobile online, be sure you print the advertisement and bring it with you to the relevant dealership. We make it easy for you to look through our pre-owned car specials. Simply visit our website, click the Pre-Owned tab at the top of your screen, and click Pre-Owned Specials.
