Buying A Used Audi? Here are 4 Things You Must Remember

2017 Audi Q7

Many people love the idea of owning an Audi.. The status the brand gives, the presence on the road - it can feel like no other. However, a brand new Audi may be a little out of reach right now, but that doesn’t mean to say you can’t own one.

A used vehicle can be a much more affordable option. What should you consider when buying a used Audi? Here are a few things to remember...

1. Buy from a reputable dealer

When buying a used vehicle, sometimes it may be tempting to just go straight online and shop on used car directories like CarGurus.com. The last thing you want to do is buy from a dealership that isn’t a specialist in the Audi range. It may be in your best interest to consider a certified pre-owned used vehicle that is sold through Audi dealerships. This way you know that the car will have been extensively checked by an approved Audi technician.

2. Consider the past history of the car

Even if the vehicle has been approved by Audi, you will still want to ask some questions about the past history. You should know how many owners the vehicle has had. You should also consider whether or not the car has been cared for by previous owners. For example, a car that is only three years old with one owner suggests the vehicle has been taken care of. However, one that is five years old with five owners may suggest an issue. You will also want to consider the service history and any past work and repairs that have been done.

3. Added protection for the car and your wallet

A used vehicle will not always come with a warranty. Sometimes you may get the remainder of the manufacturer warranty, depending on how old the car is. If not, you may only have a limited dealer warranty for a certain amount of time. This is when you may want to consider a warranty like CARS Protection Plus as an additional investment. This could be a huge saver in the future should things go wrong with your car mechanically.

4. Make sure you get a car that ticks the boxes

Finally, like any purchase, you will need to ensure that the car meets all of your requirements. Do you need a big boot? Do you require a certain amount of seats? The Audi range is quite extensive, so you are bound to find the right car to suit your needs. Having an idea of what you want before starting out your search will help you stick with the cars that are perfect for you.
