How to Choose a Vehicle in East Syracuse

Shopping for a used vehicle instead of a new vehicle can truly open your horizons when it comes to finding what you want. Here at Kia of East Syracuse, we’re proud of our wide selection of quality used vehicles for sale. Because the choices are seemingly endless when shopping pre-owned vehicles, it’s important to have a plan of attack before you start looking online or stopping by dealerships.

Set a Firm Budget

It’s important to know what you have to spend on a used vehicle before you start perusing inventory. You don’t want to fall in love with something you can’t afford, and you also don’t want to set your budget too low and miss out on things you really want. You can use our online payment calculator to determine what you can afford or apply for pre-approval on our website.

Make a Wish List

With so many options and a firm budget, it’s important to be really clear about what you absolutely must have in a vehicle. Make a list of five to ten things that you want in your pre-owned vehicle and share those wishes with your sales representative. This will help quicken your search and ensure that you get exactly what you want.

Don’t Just Think About Right Now

If you buy the right used vehicle, it will likely last you for years to come. Consider how your commute might change or your family might grow when thinking about what you want in a vehicle. That way, the car you buy will meet your needs and make you happy for as long as possible.
