Tips for Purchasing from a Used Car Dealer in St. Louis

Are you looking for a used car dealer in St. Louis that can give you excellent deals for your next pre-owned vehicle? 5 Star Auto Plaza is here to provide you with that and so much more. We take care of everything from cars to financing so you can drive off the lot happy. We even offer special rates for first-time buyers as well as weekly online exclusive deals for cars, financing, and service for you to enjoy.

Here are some tips for getting quality vehicles for your needs:

Narrow Down Your Shopping List

Look at car models known for reliability, and check consumer reports and other sources that can back claims like reliability, fuel efficiency, and more. More than anything, as cars age, dependability is critical.

Know Your Prospective Car’s Value

Take a look at Blue Book values as well as rates from other dealers to get a good idea of the value of the car you want. Many factors affect the values of a used car. Knowing the worth of the car you wish to can help you negotiate and get a better deal when you’re ready to purchase in cash or obtain financing.

Get Secured Financing

If you go to a bank or credit union to get approved for a loan before you go car shopping, dealers may try to beat their rate to get you suitable financing through them, meaning fairer prices for you.

Are you ready to get excellent pre-owned vehicles from a used car dealer in St. Louis? 5 Star Auto Plaza wants to get you the service and financing you need at competitive prices regardless of your credit history. For more information about our cars or funding, or to find out what we have on the lot, stop by the dealership or call our team today at (636) 940-7600.
