1. Set Your Budget
Setting a budget that works for your financial situation is an important part of the vehicle shopping process. Beyond the initial purchase price or financing costs, it is critical to consider the total ownership costs associated with your prospective vehicle. This includes long-term maintenance costs and insurance premiums, both of which are significant. Finding the right balance between purchase costs and ownership expenses is critical, and our finance department is here to help you secure an optimal financing plan tailored to your budgetary requirements.
2. Research Vehicles
Following the establishment of your budget, the next step is to identify the type of vehicle that best suits your needs. It is critical to consider factors such as your current lifestyle, your budget, safety concerns, and even your future needs. While we offer a plethora of used vehicles of various makes, you can explore the Honda model lineup to get an idea of what previous generation Honda models can offer, while our Cambridge dealership team can assist you with in-person browsing and researching.
3. Secure Your Auto Financing
Although not every used car buyer takes the same path, many prospective buyers choose financing options when purchasing their next vehicle. We offer the convenience of applying for financing directly through our dealership at Cambridge Centre Honda. Our financing team is here to help you get the best possible financing plan for your current situation, so visit us, today, to learn more.
4. Find Your Vehicle
Although good deals can be found on the open market when looking for a vehicle, it is worthwhile to consider the benefits of our used inventory at Cambridge Centre Honda. Our vehicles are priced competitively to facilitate quick sales while also providing a variety of benefits and protections that third-party sellers may not provide. To ensure the highest quality, our certified technicians thoroughly inspect each used vehicle in our inventory. This meticulous process ensures that the vehicle you purchase meets the highest quality and reliability standards. Check out our current Cambridge used vehicle inventory to find your next vehicle.
5. Test Drive
It is essential, as with any vehicle purchase, to take the vehicle you are interested in for a test drive. This allows you to see how the car or SUV handles and rides for yourself, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction with its overall quality. We invite you to get behind the wheel of any of our used vehicles and drive them through the streets of Cambridge.
6. Inspect Car / Review Mechanical History
Examining a used vehicle’s mechanical history and conducting an inspection before finalizing the purchase is an important part of the buying process. Fortunately, at Cambridge Centre Honda, our entire used inventory is thoroughly inspected and comes with a detailed CARFAX history report. This assurance saves you time and money by assuaging your concerns about the condition of your chosen used vehicle. If you need an inspection for a third-party sale, contact our service department to book an appointment.
7. Secure Your Insurance and Warranty Coverage
It is critical to obtain the necessary insurance coverage for your “new” used vehicle before driving it away from our dealership. Furthermore, at Cambridge Centre Honda, we provide additional coverage options in the form of warranties. To learn more about your warranty coverage eligibility, we recommend speaking with our advisor, who can provide you with detailed information and assist you in making the right decision.
