Used Car-Buying Checklist
Check for Exterior Damage
Once you find a vehicle you're interested in, be sure to thoroughly examine its exterior for any rust, scratches, dents or other damage. Let our team know of anything you see so that we can take care of it.
Examine the Interior
Inspect the car's upholstery and interior materials to check for stains, rips and other imperfections. If you do find anything, please let us know so we can make note of it.
Consider the Total Mileage
How long will you be keeping this vehicle for? Do you drive a lot? You should consider the vehicle's mileage total and your driving habits when deciding on a used car.
Take A Test-Drive
Did you find a used Hyundai Santa Fe or Elantra that stands out to you? Take it out for a test-drive to get behind the wheel and experience everything it has to offer. You can also ask our Hyundai sales experts about interior features, specs and more at this time.
