It's New To Me - What To Do When You Buy Used
Twin Cities auto owners sell cars for a lot of different reasons. Maybe they just want something new or maybe they’re selling the car because it has a problem or two. So how do you know what you’re getting into when you sign the papers for a used car in MN?
When a car comes into Mr Tire Service in Minneapolis with maintenance records, we can see if the factory maintenance schedule has been followed.If it doesn’t come with records, Minneapolis used car buyers have to assume the worst. How many Minnesota people who are turning in a leased vehicle at 36,000 miles will perform the transmission service recommended at 35,000?
So what do you do? At Mr Tire Service, we suggest getting on track with the maintenance schedule and staying on track. Lacking evidence to the contrary, assume it needs an oil change. The thorough Mr Tire Service inspection that comes with a full service oil change will reveal basic problems.
Be sure to bring up any specific concerns with your Mr Tire Service service consultant. When buying an older used vehicle in Minneapolis, there’s more to be concerned with because there’s been more time for things to go wrong. A used vehicle inspection at Mr Tire Service is a good idea: the peace of mind is well worth the money.In addition to the scheduled maintenance items, look for uneven wear on the tires. That could be a symptom of an alignment problem, worn shocks, or some other suspension issue. Listen for unusual sounds and pay attention to strange odors. Keep track of any problems you have when driving so you can consult with your cheerful service advisor at Mr Tire Service in Minneapolis.
