Beware of Outdated Used Car Buying Advice

Here at Anglesey Car Sales, in Llangefni, on an almost daily basis we get all sorts of questions from buyers based on outdated advice.

If you’re looking for a used car, unless you’re an expert, you’ll probably be looking around for good advice about how to get a good deal. The problem is that a much of the advice you’ll have heard often only applies if you were buying a car back in 1999, instead of 2021!

The automotive industry has moved on and the internet is a reliable source of information; most people do their research online. Few are trawling through magazines or visiting multiple dealers seeking the right car. The initial process has moved entirely online to websites and social media listings.

Arguably, there’s never been a better time to buy a used car. An unintended effect of sites like Auto Trader was to stop price inflation. If a price is too high, customers can easily find an alternative car. Combine this with manufacturers extending warranties, as well as many finance options and it’s no wonder the used car market is booming.

The question when buying a used car is no longer can you get the price lower, but can you get the same car or in a better condition or specification for less?

Modern cars come with so many different trims, engine sizes and optional extras that you may end up comparing models with entirely different specifications. Know the exact specification of your desired car and use that as your negotiation price point.

It’s a sad fact that there’s less than reputable dealers. If you haven’t got a car savvy friend to help and you’ve had a couple red flags or the dealer reviews are less than favourable – an independent inspection may well be a worthwhile cost for peace of mind, especially on more luxurious cars.

Our reputation for fair deals on cars in excellent condition is something we have worked extremely hard to create and maintain. Operating in a very small town, where word soon spreads we know that our vehicles absolutely have to deliver exactly what the customer is looking for, and when problems do arise our mission is to put them right without argument or fuss.

Buying from a small trader like ourselves on Anglesey means that you can be much more confident that you’re getting a good price for a car that’s well worth buying. Every single time. Just ask anyone who has ever had any dealings with us in the past and you will find out right away that we can be trusted completely.
