PA Used Car Lot

If you live in Pennsylvania and are looking for your next car, you should consider buying one that is used.

But not all used car dealerships are alike, and at Colonial Motor Mart in Indiana, PA, we are not just another PA used car lot. Far too many people have had bad experiences when they visit your average, run-of-the-mill car dealership. This is where Colonial Motor Mart steps in to give you the best experience you have ever had when buying your next used car.

We take an interest in making sure to find you an excellent used car at an affordable price through our fully transparent sales process. Unlike a typical PA used car lot, we have a full service dealership, from our team of friendly salespeople to our experienced finance experts all the way to our service department, staffed by trained technicians. For your next used car, truck, van, or SUV, experience something different at Colonial Motor Mart, the perfect place to find used cars.

We Will Work Hard to Find You the Perfect Used Car

When you come into our dealership, the first thing you are sure to notice is the extensive inventory of used cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs for sale. We usually have more than 100 used cars for sale through our dealership at any time, which means that you will have a great many choices no matter what make or model you are looking for. That is because we source our used cars from many different places, enabling us to offer you some of the finest used cars from the most popular brands and models.

If you aren’t quite sure of what type of vehicle you want, our sales staff will be more than happy to help you make a choice. They will start by asking you a few questions about your lifestyle so we can find out what your vehicular needs are. Some people, like commuters, will be better served by a model with great fuel economy. Others, such as those with a large household, need a bigger vehicle with plenty of passenger space. Whatever your needs, Colonial Motor Mart has a used vehicle that will serve them perfectly.

Our staff will also help you find a great used car that fits your personal budget. Everyone has an amount they are willing and able to spend on their car, but the good news for you is that when you buy a used car, you get more for your money than when you buy the same make and model new.

Once our salesperson gets a sense of your needs and your budget, they will have no problem showing you some great used vehicles for you to take out for a test drive. After that, it all comes down to personal taste. Maybe you like the way one car handles over another. Maybe you like the style of one SUV over another, or you feel you get better acceleration with the one you like. The decision is yours, while our staff will help make it easier for you to find the one used car that is perfect for you.

Tips for Picking a Great Used Car

Like anything in life, there are a great many different factors to take into consideration when you are buying a used car. Here a few helpful tips to take into account when you are ready to buy your next used car that will hopefully make the experience less stressful for you.

The price of a used car depends on the age of the vehicle, the mileage on the odometer, the condition of the car, the make and model, the trim level, and whether it is a special edition or has special equipment. Every year, the world’s automakers produce a certain amount of vehicles that constitute that year’s model. In general, the older a car is, the lower its price will be.

Similarly, cars with greater mileage will cost less than those with lower numbers. However, keep in mind that cars with greater mileage will have more wear-and-tear on the key components, such as the powertrain and drivetrain, meaning that they may need more maintenance and repairs, resulting in a greater cost to you in the long run.

The condition of the car will also have an impact on its price. If the car has been in an accident or had major repairs, it will cost less to buy but may also present more repair expenses over time. Fortunately, you can get a CARFAX vehicle history report which will let you know the repair history, recalls, and other critical information about the used car you are about to buy.

Make, model, trim level, special editions, and special equipment can also affect a used car’s price. Certain makes and models are more popular than others or had a premium price, to begin with. As a result, the laws of supply and demand will prevail since the greater number of people who want to buy a specific make and model of used car will drive up the price, while less popular models can be found at more affordable prices. Trim levels act in a similar way as the more luxury trims will drive up the price of a used car. Finally, special editions and special equipment will cost more than standard used car models, like paying extra for a diesel engine on a used pickup truck or a limited edition SUV.

A great way to get more vehicle for your money when buying used is to look for a model that has either undergone a recent major renovation or has been discontinued altogether. Sometimes, automakers come out with new versions of their most popular models, referred to as a new generation. As a result, the older generation used models can be found for less money, even though they are perfectly fine vehicles. Similarly, automotive companies also discontinue certain models for various reasons, like a drop in popularity or a decision to stop making that type of vehicle. This is your chance to get an amazing deal on a used vehicle, as some people will shy away from buying a model that has been discontinued or is from an older generation.
