Shopping for a used luxury car is a great way to experience exceptional performance and high-class amenities while sticking to your budget. If you are interested in a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz, our quick guide will set you on the path to finding your dream vehicle while shopping for a used luxury car.

Which Luxury Car Should I Buy?

When you begin to shop for a used luxury car, you will first need to narrow it down to a model that will fit your lifestyle. Consider the following factors when making your decision:

  • Price: While a luxury car will usually cost more than a conventional model, a used luxury vehicle can be the perfect choice for drivers searching for premium features on a budget. Take an honest look at your finances and set a price range before visiting a dealership.
  • Size: In need of a family vehicle? A crossover or SUV like the GLC might better meet your needs.
  • Fuel Economy: If you’d like to save money on fuel costs, consider an efficient sedan like the C-Class. It can reduce the amount you spend on fuel while traveling the streets and highways of Chicago.
  • Features: Luxury vehicles are known for their selection of advanced features, so make a list of your must-haves. Whether you want the latest in connectivity, advanced driver assistance features, or comfortable seating, there will plenty of options to choose from.

Shopping for a Used Luxury Car

When you’ve found your ideal used luxury vehicle, you’ll want to inspect it to make sure it’s in great shape. Take it for a test drive and check the following:

  • Test all the basic vehicle elements such as lights, windows, heating, and cooling.
  • Make sure all advanced components are working including infotainment, connectivity, and safety features
  • Consider having the vehicle inspected by a trained technician
  • Purchase the vehicle from a trusted dealer
  • Request a vehicle history report to make sure the car has a clean bill of health.
