General FAQs

What are some red flags when buying a used car?

When buying a used car, be wary of sellers who are reluctant to show you a vehicle history report and who do not have the title of the car or prove that they own it. On the vehicle itself, look for rust, mismatched paint, a musty or moldy smell, and any worn parts that have not been repaired or replaced.

Is a used vehicle under any warranty?

This depends on the dealer. At Edge AutoSports, we offer an extended warranty to cover repairs, depending on the vehicle you purchase from us.

Can I have a used car inspected by a mechanic of my choice?

Yes, you have the right to schedule a “pre-purchase inspection” at the service center of your choice.

What is the best guideline before buying a used vehicle?

Be sure to purchase from a reputable dealer, do your research on a fair cost for the vehicle that you’re looking to buy, and stick to your budget as closely as possible. Read our guide to finding the right used car or truck here.

Can I return a car after purchase?

Generally speaking, you cannot return a vehicle once you’ve signed a contract to purchase it.

Does Edge AutoSports inspect the vehicles before selling them?

Yes, of course. We do our very best to ensure the vehicle is in good condition before listing them for sale.

Does Edge AutoSports disclose the maintenance history or provide records?

Yes, we do. You can also look up the vehicle’s maintenance history on Carfax.

What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned?

A used car is any vehicle that has been previously owned and sold either privately or by a used car dealership. A certified pre-owned vehicle is one that has been inspected and refurbished by the manufacturer before it’s listed on the market. Technically, all certified pre-owned vehicles are used vehicles, but not all used vehicles are certified pre-owned.

Does Edge AutoSports sell cars that have been in an accident?

Yes. However, we do our due diligence to make sure that the car is safe and in good condition before we list it for sale.

Why should I choose Edge AutoSports dealership?

We know how important a vehicle purchase is and the investment that our customers place in finding a good, quality used vehicle. Our team is committed to providing honest and trustworthy service every time.

What are the benefits of buying from a dealership?

When compared to buying a vehicle from a private seller, customers typically have a smoother experience with peace of mind when buying from a dealership. When you buy a used car from a dealership, some of the benefits include:

  • Extended warranty on repairs
  • Trade-in for your existing vehicle
  • Financing options for good, bad, or no credit
  • Past reviews from satisfied customers

What if I don’t like the car after buying it?

Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do after buying a vehicle and signing the contract. This highlights the importance of taking your time to look for the right used vehicle, doing your research, and buying from a reputable and honest seller.

What documents do I need to sell my vehicle?

To sell your vehicle or do a trade-in at our dealership, you’ll need your vehicle registration and a completed bill of sale to prove that you own the vehicle.

Used Vehicle FAQs

What questions should I ask about a used vehicle?

When looking at a used vehicle, be sure to ask the seller if you can go for a test drive, where the vehicle came from, if additional parts or repairs are included, if you can see the maintenance history, and what the warranty covers. For more detailed information, read our blog on what questions you should ask about a used vehicle.

Am I able to test drive the car?

Yes, at Edge AutoSports, you can conveniently schedule a test drive right on our website when you browse through our used vehicle inventory. Simply click on the vehicle that you’re interested in and click on the ‘Schedule a Test Drive’ tab and fill out the form.

Does a used car come with a spare and jack?

It depends on the vehicle and whether the previous owner has provided a spare tire, a jack, and any other accessories with their trade-in or when they sold the vehicle to Edge AutoSports.

Are you a certified dealer for used vehicles?

Yes, Edge AutoSports is a certified dealer for used vehicles. We are one of the top used car dealerships in Evansville.

What should I know before buying a used car?

Generally speaking, you should know your budget and have an idea of what type of vehicle you need. When you’ve found a used car that’s in good condition, it’s a good idea to look at the vehicle maintenance history and get an inspection from a mechanic of your choice to make sure that all components are in good working order.

What are the benefits of purchasing a used car instead of a new one?

One of the biggest benefits is cost savings. When you buy a new car, you can lose up to 30% of its value the moment you drive it off the lot. Used cars have a lower price, less depreciation, and your car insurance may be cheaper. Additionally, vehicles today last longer with advanced features and new technology. When you buy a quality used car in good condition, you can expect it to last for years if it’s maintained properly.

What is a used vehicle history report?

A vehicle history report provides important information about the vehicle, including the vehicle registration history, service records, recalls, major accidents and claims, and the title status. At Edge AutoSports, we can provide you with the vehicle history report or you can get it on Carfax.

Is there a guaranteed minimum warranty required for used cars for sale?

No, there is no guaranteed minimum warranty for a used car. Depending on the vehicle, Edge AutoSports provides an extended warranty to cover any repairs. If you find a vehicle you like in our inventory, ask us about any warranties and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

Can I roll my existing loan into a new purchase?

If you are currently paying a car loan and would like to purchase a used car from us, contact us about your financing options.

Financing a Used Vehicle FAQs

Do you provide financing for used cars?

Yes, we work with multiple lenders that can offer you the best financing option for your financial situation.

Can I cancel a car loan?

Unfortunately, you cannot cancel a car loan once the contract has been signed.

Can I refinance a car loan?

Yes, you can work with your lender to refinance a car loan. Keep in mind that refinancing your car loan may come with certain fees and penalties depending on the lender. We recommend refinancing when the circumstances are right, such as if you think you can qualify for a better interest rate.

How does my credit score affect my ability to get a used car loan?

For some lenders, a poor credit score may impact your ability to get a used car loan. However, at Edge AutoSports, we have banks for great credit, okay credit, and bad credit. We understand how important a vehicle is for you, your family, and your daily life. Our goal is to help you purchase a vehicle, regardless of your credit history. We can help you get approved, even if you were denied elsewhere.

Can I finance a used car with no money down?

Yes, you can finance a used car with no money down. Keep in mind that no down payment may result in a higher interest rate and higher monthly payments.
