Step One: Set Your Budget

First things first, you'll need to establish the limitations of your budget and decide how much you want to spend on a used car. From there, you can determine the type of model you're in the market for and what options from our dealership inventories are realistic for you.

Step Two: Do Your Research

Once your budget is determined, you'll be ready to start shopping for a used car. But before you start looking through inventory options, it'll help to do a bit of research about the type of car you're looking for, how much used options of it typically go for, and all the locations you can find it from.

This will help make sure you get the best used model to suit your driving style, and also that you get that model for the best available price.

Step Three: Start Your Search

You're officially ready to get your search started! Whether you plan to visit our local Blake Fulenwider Automotive Group dealership in person or shop their inventory online, you'll have everything you need to start shopping used cars for sale near you.

Hopefully, along the way, our team can lend a hand in making your search a bit easier. At any of our dealerships you'll find a team of sales experts who can point you in the direction of a used car that fits all your needs. You can also utilize our online inventory filters to quickly find a used car based on vehicle details like make, price, drivetrain, and features.

Step Four: Check the Vehicle History Report

At our dealerships, we aim to ensure that every customer drives off in confidence in their used car. To do that, we offer a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ alongside each of our used car options, providing you all the information you need about your prospective used model.

You'll want to make sure you read through the vehicle history report of a used car to see everything from the vehicle's maintenance history to the title owners that have come before. It'll provide you the peace of mind you deserve when buying a used car.

Step Five: Test Drive the Car

Another way to ensure that your favorite used car is the right ride for you is by taking it for a test drive. This will help you confirm that the car is road-ready and not in need of any immediate repairs, and also that you enjoy the feel of being behind the wheel.
