If you’re shopping for a used car, you’ll no doubt have considered whether to buy from a private seller or from a licensed dealership. But buying a used car from a private seller can come with uncomfortable risks, while getting your new-to-you ride from a dealership comes with a few perks.
If you buy at a dealership, you don’t have to worry about buying a fraudulent vehicle. At Atzenhoffer, we would lose our license to sell our vehicles if we did not follow strict laws, especially with regards to the true ownership of the vehicle. If you buy a used vehicle from a private party, there’s the risk you’ll end up in a long and costly legal battle over the title.
Dealerships have first dibs on vehicles coming off factory leases, and get a steady stream of trade-ins from shoppers seeking new cars. As a result, they have a superior selection of used vehicles from recent model years that, while more affordable than new cars, still offer much of the same modern features.
Better Quality & Service
At Atzenhoffer, we’ll inspect a car and replace worn parts before putting it up for sale. You’ll also get a Carfax vehicle history report so you know exactly what the car’s gone through. That’s not something you can guarantee when buying from a private seller. Furthermore, if you do run into any issues after the sale, you’ll have a much easier time rectifying any problems at the dealership than from whomever else you might have bought a car.
