Used Car Shopping Tips 

Don't Skip the Test Drive: The test drive is always an important step of the car buying process, but it's especially important for drivers who want a used vehicle. You'll be able to see how the vehicle handles and if there are any issues that could make it less safe for you to drive, like a lack of modern safety technology.  

Ask About Previous Maintenance: You can also see if the used vehicle that you're looking at has been cared for by asking about the maintenance history.  

Get a Vehicle History Report: In some cases, you can also get a fully detained vehicle history report that will tell you if a vehicle has previously been in an accident.  

Consider Certified Models: If you're really worried about safety and reliability, you might want to look into our certified pre-owned Volkswagen program.
