Jeremy Franklin Offers Tips for Getting the Best Value Out of a Used Vehicle Purchase

After you narrowed your search down to a reasonable number of vehicles, its still a good idea to take a test-drive and check the car out thoroughly

Many consumers are stretching smaller budgets these days. For some that may mean changing plans about buying a new car and making an investment in a pre-owned vehicle. Automotive sales volume is below 1986 levels but used vehicle purchases continue to rise from month-to-month. "Consumers need to make sure they shop wisely," said Jeremy Franklin of Jeremy Franklin's Used Car Network in Kansas City. "The good news is there are great bargains available on high quality, reliable transportation."

Buying a used car is an easier process now with the explosion of information that is available through the Internet and reliable vehicle history reports. However, the buyer still has to be careful.

Franklin says you should make sure you do your research. "After you narrowed your search down to a reasonable number of vehicles, its still a good idea to take a test-drive and check the car out thoroughly," he said. "Kick the tires, literally, and make sure the dealer has done the same." Jeremy Franklin's Used Car Network consists only of high quality, 130 point inspected pre-owned vehicles.

One of the big concerns consumers have about buying a used car is that they may inherit a car with problems. Jeremy Franklin's Used Car Network has also instituted a five-day "Love it or Leave it" money back guarantee. If for any reason a customer is dissatisfied with a purchased vehicle, it may be returned within five days or 150 miles (whichever comes first; applies to pre-owned inventory only). "I want each of our customers to have peace of mind when they purchase a vehicle from my dealership," said Franklin.

Even with all of the deals available to buyers, consumers would still be wise to avoid price confusion games. Some dealers, including Jeremy Franklin, have instituted a value pricing system. "We know the number one complaint from consumers about the vehicle buying process is haggling over price," said Franklin. "That is why we put our best possible price upfront, on the Internet and on the window sticker. The price you see on the sticker is the lowest price available in the market for that particular vehicle."

So a little research and some smart shopping can maximize that already stretched budget and relieve some of the stress from these stress-filled times.
