Buying a used or pre-owned vehicle can be an excellent option when you’re in the market for a vehicle. But it can also be a daunting process, loaded with uncertainty.

It’s important to be aware of important signs that reveal whether or not the car you’re considering has been well-cared for and adequately maintained by its previous owner.

While you might encounter some fairly obvious signs of neglect or unchecked wear and tear on your own, you should always entrust the final inspection to a mechanic.

Most mechanics, especially if they have been working at their trade for a while, won’t miss a beat when it comes to spying a repair that conceals a larger problem.

Before making your pre-owned purchase, visit your local mechanic for an inspection and to schedule your car’s next oil change in Albany, NY.
