Buying a used car in the UAE presents you with an almost infinite number of possibilities. Should you scour private adverts and online auctions to find the best used car? Or should you cut out all that time and effort and go straight to a dealership instead? Here are our top tips to help you find the best used car in the UAE.
If you have a young family and you need a car that will double up as a comfortable commuter and a weekend, family-friendly people carrier, you’ll need something a little more versatile than a two-seater coupe. While we often make decisions on which car to buy with our hearts, you need to also think with your head too. So both aesthetics and practicality come into the equation. If you’re really not sure as to which used car to buy, the best option is to test drive a few and get a real feel for each one.
At Al-Futtaim Lexus, you can book a test drive online and the car can be delivered right to your door, making this the easiest way to Experience Amazing for yourself. Whether you’re looking for the most reliable SUV for the family such as LX 570 , Lexus GX or a sleek sedan such as the Lexus IS 460 or Lexus ES you can get behind the wheel and see if it fulfils all your needs.
When you’re looking for a quality used car in the UAE, buy the best you can afford. A car is often the second-most important purchase you’ll make after your house, so it should be carefully considered from every angle. Buying a premium quality used car such as the Lexus latest models means that you’ll have years of trouble-free driving in a car you and your family feel comfortable in. It also means that you won’t be continually swapping cars every few months.
Your budget can include the price you’ll get if you trade in your old car, so to start with, find out exactly how much your current vehicle is worth using an online checker. At Al-Futtaim Lexus, you’ll get an instant quote at the full market value with our online valuation tool. You can also check if you’re eligible for finance, which could make it even easier to upgrade to a better used car.
If you’re buying a used car, there can be a raft of paperwork to get through before you can get behind the wheel. To cut through all that and to save you time and money, a dealer can sort out all the paperwork for you. This is why our top tip is to buy your next used car in Dubai through a dealership rather than a private sale.
Used cars in the UAE don’t all come with a warranty. So if you want total peace of mind when you’re buying, look for offers where there is at least a year’s warranty in place.
The cost of owning a vehicle doesn’t stop at the petrol pump. Servicing is a big part of your budgetary considerations and one that could leave you out of pocket. At Al-Futtaim Lexus, our pre-owned vehicles not only undergo a meticulous check before they are sold but also come with a two-year/30,000km service contract. That can make a big difference to your costs further down the line, making owning a quality used car much more affordable.
But don’t just take our word for it. Why not go back to our first point, and book a test drive with Al-Futtaim Lexus today?
