How to buy a used car near Washington, D.C.

What’s the best way to find and buy a good used car?

Know what you can afford

You shouldn’t spend more than a quarter of your income on car payments, as a general rule. So, buy with your head and not with your heart. That’ll prevent you getting over your head later on. Decide your budget, and then stick to it. When you’re ready, use our online application to get financing.

How to buy a used car near Washington, D.C.

Make a wish list

Once you know what you can afford, make a list of cars that fit the bill. Keep an open mind. You should have some secondary options that you will be willing to settle for in case you discover that your first choice doesn’t actually meet your needs or fit your budget.

Check prices and reviews online

Gather all the information you can about the models you’re interested in. Besides checking car review sites, online forums are a great place to learn about specific features and issues with specific cars straight from owners. Then, use our online appraisal tool to get the true market value of the car you want.

Check the inventory at Car Web Inc.

Use our online inventory search to sort by make/model, year, mileage, price, body style, MPG or color. With our extensive inventory, you’re sure to find something that fits your needs. Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for? Give us a call at 855-395-7506 and we’ll help you find it.

Check the vehicle history report

Click online or call us for the free Carfax report of the car you’re interested in. You can use the vehicle’s VIN to get an even more detailed report online. We include a free Carfax vehicle history report with every vehicle to instill confidence in our customers, because an informed customer is a happy customer.

Test drive

Don’t just kick the tires! The only way to know for sure if a car is the right one for you is to take it for a spin. Try to make up a route that simulates what your usual driving routine is like (i.e., if you you do a lot of highway miles, get the vehicle up to highway speed and see what it’s like).

All that’s left is a little painless paperwork, and then you’re ready to relax and enjoy your “brand-new” used car!

Step 2: Get a dealership quote

Give us a call at 855-395-7506 to set an appointment for appraisal of your car. Try to schedule your appraisal when it’s not too busy, like on a weekday morning, and we’ll have you in and out in a hurry. Keep in mind that the trade-in price you’re offered might vary depending on our inventory and how likely it is that the car will sell well.

Step 3: Negotiate or close the deal

We’ll give you our best offer on your used vehicle. If you intend to buy your next vehicle here at Car Web Inc, you can bet we’ll sweeten the deal for you. You won’t likely get a higher offer elsewhere. We encourage you to do your research and to check for our special promotions by calling 855-395-7506. Remember, there’s always room to negotiate.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need to clean my car? Now, it’s not necessary to have your car professionally detailed when bringing it in for appraisal. But please throw out those old fast food wrappers or soda cans. Other than that, keep in mind that a little dirt doesn’t change the value of the car.
  • Do I need to repair my car? Sometimes people get dings and dents repaired or put on a fresh set of tires before an appraisal. That’s not necessary. We can make repairs to the car at a much better value, so it won’t likely add value to your trade-in.
  • Why is the offer less than I expected? People often attach sentimental value to their cars and assume they’ll get the highest value on the appraisal site. The truth is online appraisals are averages; some people get offered more, some less. Rather than fuss over the old car’s value, let’s focus on getting you a great deal on your new car!
