If you’re eyeing a used Dodge Charger, make sure to test drive one at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM. We’re dedicated to matching drivers with the right vehicle at the right price, and we’re sharing all the things you’ll want to look out for on the next test drive in a pre-owned car.
The mileage on a vehicle can tell you a lot more than the age. A high mileage gives you insight into how hard the car was driven, and what parts and systems will need to be replaced sooner than later. While high mileage may not be enough to deter you away from a vehicle, it can help you to adjust your budget and service schedule.
Signs of Corrosion
Pre-owned vehicles may have a history of accidents and repairs, but the one type of damage you really want to watch out for is rust. Rust is difficult, if not impossible, to repair, and can make for very costly service needs in the long and short-term. If you see signs of rust or corrosion, you’ll want to move onto the next pre-owned model.
Of course, some tire damage may be fluke or accident, but pay close attention to tire damage or wear that looks environmental. Tires can tell us a lot about a vehicle, like how it was driven and the environment where it was used most. If the tires look like they were used for racing, off-roading, or other types of extreme driving, it may indicate excessive wear to other essential parts and systems.
