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!

With the value of your trade combined with the extra money in your pocket, the automotive market can be your oyster.

How to Make Sure You’re Buying a Safe Used Car for Your Family

Used cars can be a great deal money-wise, but are they safe for your family? When you buy from Village Motors of Conover, you can rest assured that your precious passengers will be safe.

No Need to Sacrifice Safety for Savings

Just because you choose to save money by purchasing a used car instead of a new one, it doesn’t mean you can’t find a safe vehicle for your family. You have to be careful when buying a used car that you don’t take on someone else’s problems, but you can do that by checking out the vehicle’s history report and having it checked out by a mechanic.

Vehicle History Reports

Companies like CarFax® and AutoCheck® offer reports on maintenance records and accident reports. You can access this information by inputting the vehicle’s VIN number as long as reports have been filed on that particular vehicle.

A Thorough Once Over

It is always a good idea to have a mechanic look at a car you are thinking of purchasing. This can alert you to any problems, and then you can decide if they are serious enough for you to give the vehicle a pass. Some dealerships will certify used cars through their own service departments.
