How to Shop for a Quality Used Car

Navigating purchasing a used vehicle can be a tricky process. No two cars have the same history or features. When buying a pre-owned car, the possibilities are endless. It’s important that you map out what you want out of your used car, truck, or SUV before you start shopping to ensure that you get the right vehicle for you.

Narrow Down What You Want

Before visiting our lot, spend some time researching makes and models online so you can figure out what vehicles offer what you want. Since the possibilities are so vast when shopping for a used car, it’s easy to get carried away with features that aren’t that important to you. Make a list of your top wants and needs. When you visit our dealership in Bay Shore, NY, we’ll make sure that we find you what you’re looking for at a great price.

Know Your Budget

At Bright Bay Mazda, your Long Island used car dealer, we have used cars at various price points. Know what you can spend before you start shopping. You may be able to get more than you think or you may need to narrow down your list of wants to get financing. Either way, we’ll work with you through the process. You can find out what you qualify for before coming to our dealership by filling out our online credit application. Someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss your financing situation.
