Used Dodge - Take One For A Test Drive

If you are looking for a new car, then it is likely that you will have done a little bit of research to decide what type of car you want. I don't mean out on the street questionnaires or focus groups - I just mean going around some local dealerships, taking a few cars out for a test drive, and seeing what sort of vehicles really suits you needs. For some it will all be about nippy little sports saloons, whilst for others they will realise that practicality needs to win out.

Similarly, many people will realised that a small engine just isn't strong enough for their daily driving needs - whilst the other half of the population will decide that small is where it is at.

If you have decided on the brand of car, then you are already halfway to finding a car that you can actually buy and drive away. Instead of trying to search all car makes all around the country Autel MaxiSys Pro, instead do you best to decide which specific brand and consequently which particular style of car you personally want. One brand that often gets overlooked is the much maligned Dodge range, even though they actually have some great cars for modern families and even executives.

If you hadn't thought about owning a used Dodge, here is a brief overview of the types of cars they produce. Generally, as you might expect, Dodges are big cars. They focus more on space that sleek lines, and instead pay homage to the muscle cars history that is such an integral part of all American car brands. Big, chunky and with a massive front grilles, they are often the car of choice for people who need a functional car that doesn't look like one of those generic shoebox shaped family machines.

If this powerful brand sounds like your cup of tea, then here are some of your options.

For executive types who want a smart work car that is a bit of a break from the norm autel maxidas ds808, then the aggressively named Dodge Avenger is the car to trawl the used car dealerships for. Available in both petrol and diesel models, with a sizeable and more than suitable 2 - 2.4 litre engine, these luxurious cars look great but are at the bottom of the executive car price list. This is the car for those who don't want to spend too much to look good.

Alternatively, you may be looking for a car that suits your family as much as it suits you, then look towards the Dodge Calibre. Spacious yet not over the top, this is packed with clever little space saving features and convenient design additions, such as a whole row of drinks holders. If you have a larger than average family, however, and need a 7 seated, then the Dodge Journey will show you just how practical and enjoyable a big car can actually be. Gone are the ugly fabrics and tight spaces, replaced instead with rotatable reclining seats that let everyone travel in an impressive level of comfort.

Used Car Supermarket - The Choice is Yours

They say that buying a house is potentially the most stressful purchase of one's life. I was about to challenge this notion but then after a couple of brief personal reminiscences about buying houses like the time when we discovered that the previous occupants in their wisdom decided to take the central heating system with them. Or in the case of our current property, we don't actually own the end of our garden due to some ancient covenant that had been conveniently overlooked by the seller.

With that in mind I decided to concede the above statement as accurate and move on to what must undoubtedly be the second most stressful purchase in life which is buying a used car.

We've all read stories about people losing thousands of pounds by buying what they thought was their dream car only to find it had been welded to the other half of someone else's dream car by some unscrupulous individual autel maxidas ds808.

Until a few years ago when it came to buying a used car your choices were fairly limited, you could buy privately which although didn't always end in tears you were lucky to get a sound vehicle. True you might have saved some money but you would have paid more in the long run. I have numerous tales from people I know most of them fairly clued up individuals who have come a cropper by buying what they thought was a bargain from some bloke in a car park.

I myself am not exempt from such tales which I won't bore you with right now although I must cite the example when I bought a Citroen CX from my girlfriends' Uncle no less! The car was unlocked when I test drove it, fair enough I thought but it was also unlocked when I collected it and on arriving home I realised why. The door locks didn't actually work you see and I had to pay to have them repaired, soon after that the suspension collapsed leaving another large bill and causing a few heated exchanges between myself and the charlatan who sold me a shed. Suffice to say that my relationship also ended up in the scrap yard!

If this wasn't enough to put you off there was of course the notorious used car dealer usually found beneath some railway arches smoking cheap cigars and offering a battered array of ex-taxis usually with a warranty not worth the paper it was forged on.

If you were really brave or stupid (fine line between them here) you may have ended up at a car auction bidding along side the likes of "Mr underneath the arches" where you may end with something that would get you home and then fall to bits on the driveway.

The vast majority of people ended up visiting the franchised dealers where you were offered copious amounts of weak coffee and were subjected to lots of jolly banter from 16 year old sales people wearing suits a couple of sizes too big for them. At least though the cars were of better quality and you may have been able to haggle about the price without being assaulted. Warranties were usually available and they could offer finance deals. Part exchange of your old car could be quite favourable so you wouldn't have to endure selling your car privately.

Independent dealers arose to offer a more competitive edge from the franchised boys but still offered a good service compared to our friend with the tattoos.

In recent times many other players have entered the market but the most successful has been the Used Car Supermarket, pretty much as the name suggests they offer a large amount of stock competitively priced and with a high turnover. Most people these days are far more educated when it comes to buying cars so will have done their research before hand and compared prices and then been able to bag a good deal at the car supermarket.

You probably won't get far haggling over prices (just try it at Tesco's) but usually what you see is what you get and there is a wide choice of mainstream models on offer.

With so many options available to the used buyer these days it is largely a matter of personal choice where you part with your hard earned cash but rest assured the Used Car Supermarket is here to stay and may save you a packet Autel Maxisys MS908CV.
