When you’re shopping for a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you need to know what’s best to look for. Pre-owned vehicles come in all shapes and sizes; learning how to narrow your search and focus on specific elements will help you find the right one. To understand what to look for in a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicle, Mercedes-Benz of Jacksonville recommends these key facts.

Know Your Style

Do you want a sedan or an SUV? What about hybrids or electric vehicles? Know which style of car you want first before test-driving a model, but stay open to exploring other options.

Mileage and Age

One of the most important factors is the vehicle’s mileage and age. A pre-owned vehicle with high mileage may be more worn than a newer one. This shouldn’t be the sole determining factor on a vehicle, but it should help you estimate its reliability.

Owner and Maintenance History

Every driver should know the history of a pre-owned vehicle. How many owners has it had? Has any major maintenance or repair been done to it? Our dealership will have these records on file, so make sure you ask about the vehicle’s history before test-driving it.

Engine Status

You’ll always want to pop the hood on a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz car before taking it for a spin. Check for any obvious signs of damage or detritus. If you see any leaks, you should inform our dealership so we can fix the issue.

Get Behind the Wheel

You never know if the vehicle is right for you until you sit in the driver’s seat. Make sure the interior is comfortable for you, and that all the interior functions are working properly.
