Car Buying Tips with Avis Car Sales

Jeff Rose, Certified Financial Planner, Founder of Good Financial Cents and Avis Car Sales spokesperson, shares his top tips for purchasing a used vehicle that will make the most of your budget.

1.    Want to know one of the best kept secrets out there? 
You can buy a used vehicle from rental car companies like Avis! It's a cost-effective way to get a newer and well-maintained vehicle for savvy car buyers.

2.    Before you start your car search, 
Outline the key factors, such as price, vehicle features, size, color, use and more, that are must-haves for you and your family. When you search on, you can filter the search to match your preferences, seeing only the vehicles that check your boxes.

3.    Test drive, test drive, test drive! 
Before selecting a car, take it out for a spin to ensure it is the right option for you. Take advantage of test drive offerings, like the Avis Car Sales Ultimate Test Drive program, which allows you to test drive each vehicle for two hours or up to a couple of days, so you have the time to make sure the car feels comfortable, safe and right for you.

4.    Go used! 
If you're debating a used car vs. a new one, go with used. A vehicle's value depreciates about 20-40% over the first few years but can still be in great shape, especially if it has been serviced regularly, making it a savvy investment. Avis Car Sales vehicles are a great value as the majority are within one model year of new vehicles and have the latest safety and infotainment features people love like USB outlets, Apple Car Play and more!

5.    Not all used cars are created equal! 
All vehicles available from Avis Car Sales are Certified Pre-Owned which means they have had detailed inspections and reconditioning, and often come with extended warranties, extra perks with purchase and more. Give yourself that extra peace of mind when car shopping by opting for a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Avis.
