First-Time Buyer Guide: Used Vehicles

First-Time Buyer Guide: Used Vehicles

If this is your first time buying a car, you might be considering a used vehicle, especially if you are a relatively new driver. With so much to think about, choosing the right vehicle to meet your budget and needs can be difficult. At Charlottetown Mitsubishi, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, we want to help you make the best choice, so we have put together a first-time buyers guide for used vehicles to help you decide.



When you are in the market for a new or used vehicle, one of the primary concerns is your budget. While the friendly and professional Finance Centre can certainly help with your financing needs, it is important to be honest with yourself about the monthly payments you can comfortably afford. For many young Canadians, purchasing a vehicle is a way to help establish your credit, and the importance of starting on the right foot cannot be overstated.


Safety & Reliability

Another important factor when choosing a vehicle is safety and reliability. Many used vehicles come with an array of advanced safety features, and any vehicle manufactured to be sold in Canada after 2012 will be equipped with ABS, Electronic Stability Control, and Traction Control.


Age & Mileage

It is also important to consider the age and mileage of the vehicle as well, as these factors will influence the overall cost of ownership of your vehicle. While a vehicle must be maintained throughout its lifetime, as it ages, the maintenance costs can often increase.



When you purchase a used Mitsubishi vehicle, chances are good that there will be remaining coverage from the Manufacturer’s Limited New Vehicle and Powertrain Warranties. Mitsubishi offers the best-backed vehicles in the industry, offering a 5-year or 100,000-kilometre New Vehicle Warranty and Roadside Assistance coverage, as well as a 10-year or 160,000-kilometre Powertrain warranty, so many of the Mitsubishi’s in our used vehicle inventory still carry the manufacturer’s warranty, giving you additional peace of mind.
