Tips for Choosing the Best Used Car for You | St. Cloud, MN

Don Robinson Mitsubishi has a massive inventory of used sedans, trucks, and SUVs from a variety of automakers. If you need help narrowing down your choices from this vast used car inventory selection, here are some tips for deciding which model you should buy.


Evaluate your needs and wants

Whether you are in the market for a used car or a brand new car, you should always identify what your needs are first. What features and aspects of a vehicle are most important to you?
If you enjoy off-roading, you may want a rugged SUV or pickup truck with suspension enhancements. If you have a large family, a spacious minivan or SUV with three rows of seats would be best for daily school commutes. For the lone traveler, a sporty hatchback with great fuel economy would give you the best drive on long road trips.
Considering what your overall lifestyle routines and goals are and understanding how different vehicles meet them will let you narrow down the type of used car you should get.


Plan your budget

As you start your used car search, plan a budget so that you can look for models that fall in the price range you can afford. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, your used car can be a newer certified pre-owned model an older model from 5+ years ago.
If you want the latest entertainment technology, comfort amenities, and safety features, you should plan to spend more a used car from a recent model year. However, if you are simply looking for a reliable vehicle that will transport you from point A to point B, you could go with an older model that doesn’t necessarily have all the newest features.

Once you know these factors, you’ll be able to spot a deal for the type of model you want based on how much it usually sells for. Don Robinson Mitsubishi has many affordably priced used cars, trucks, and SUVs in stock, so browse our online inventory to find a great deal.
