Used Car Purchasing Guide

Are you thinking of buying a used vehicle?  If you are, then this is a good place to start. 

When you purchase a vehicle in the state of Minnesota, after you sign on the dotted line, the vehicle is yours!  That means all the problems that the vehicle has are yours!  It is important to know BEFORE you purchase that vehicle, what it could or will cost you for repairs. Sometimes these repairs exceed the value of the vehicle!

Tips for Buying a Used Car
  • Getting the car inspected is the buyers responsibility. It is important to get the car inspected BEFORE YOU BUY IT in order to make get an idea of possible repairs and any red flags. Some dealers will say that they already performed an inspection, but you should always have the vehicle inspected by an auto repair shop that you trust. At Boeser Automotive, we offer a very thorough inspection of any used car you are considering and we want to make sure that the car you are buying is safe for you to drive. If the seller or dealer does not allow you to get the car inspected, DO NOT BUY IT!

  • It is not uncommon to see $1,000 in work on used cars. Used cares are just that, used, so don't expect to be buying a car that is in perfect working condition. Boeser Automotive is here to help you repair anything and everything on the used car that you decide to purchase.

  • Service Contracts, sometimes known as "Extended Warranties" are an agreement that the seller will pay for certain repairs or services for either a certain amount of time or certain amount of miles. Basically it is an insurance policy. These contracts always cost extra on top of the purchasing price of the vehicle you are buying. Many times, the people selling the car will use the contract cost to gain extra profit at your expense so it's a good idea to compare the contract you are offered to intended contracts of well established companies to see if the contract is worth accepting.
