Why Buy a Pre-Owned Vehicle During Tax Season

Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle can be a significant financial decision no matter the time of year. However, buying one from Village Motors of Conover during tax season comes with more than a few benefits. If you’re looking for a high-quality, new-to-you ride in Conover, North Carolina, here are some reasons to shop here during tax time.

Use that extra money

Depending on how you set up your tax returns, you may be able to pad your bank account when your refund check arrives. With that money, you can place a higher down payment on a reliable vehicle for your family — and secure lower monthly rates at the same time — or maybe buy a model with a few more bells and whistles.

Get a better deal

You can take advantage of special dealer incentives during tax season, which can help you get the most out of your refund and save a few bucks — all while getting a great deal on a great car. Feel free to call a member of our sales staff at 866-202-0318 for more information on current specials!

IS that Too Many Miles For A Used Car?

When you’re buying a used vehicle, one thing you’ll want to factor in is the mileage. With these tips on understanding how to know if a pre-owned vehicle has too many miles on the odometer and our “Iron-Clad Guarantee,” which promises a free auto check report and inspection, you’ll be able to make an informed purchase at Village Motors of Conover.

Calculate based on the average miles-per-year

The industry average for mileage in America is 15,000 miles per year. Looking for a used vehicle that’s at or below this average according to its age is a great starting point when searching for a quality used model. For instance, a car that’s 5 years old with 100,000 miles may have been overtaxed during its previous years, whereas a 5-year-old model with 45,000 miles is probably in great shape for its age.

Look at the brand’s average lifespan

Some brands are known to have longer lifespans than others, so you should take that into consideration when you’re looking at mileage. For a model that lasts, on average, 130,000 miles, 70,000 miles isn’t as appealing as it would be compared to a model that can regularly go for 180,000.

Compare the mileage to the price

Don’t get caught up in looking for low mileage while shopping for a used model. Price should always be a factor. A guide like Kelley Blue Book can help you determine a vehicle’s worth compared to its age, mileage, and condition, and help you find a great deal.

At Village Motors of Conover, our only goal is to make your car-buying experience stress-free and to do everything to make sure you find a great deal on a model that works for you. If you’re in the market for a high-quality new-to-you vehicle, don’t hesitate to pay us a visit and peruse our lot.
