Car-buying can be stressful. Some people rank it right up there with dental work. But finding the right new-to-you car doesn’t have to be nerve-wracking. When you know what to look for, you can feel more confident about your used car choices.

At Unique Enterprises, we only select quality used vehicles to offer on our lot. To find the one that fits your needs, style and budget, consider:

Resale Value

Price is a very important factor when purchasing a vehicle, but you need to make sure that you are getting what you pay for. To determine if the price aligns with the value of a used vehicle, consider:


  • Manufacturer—is the automaker known for lower upfront price points but higher lifetime maintenance costs or vice versa?
  • Year and mileage—how old is the vehicle? How many miles does it have? How many useful years can you expect to get from it?
  • Condition—does the paint, body and/or interior look good or worn?


Consumer tools like Kelley Blue Book can generate an estimated value so you know if the sticker price is in line with the vehicle’s condition.

Maintenance and Ownership Records

The appearance of a vehicle does not always tell you what the car’s been through. To make sure the frame and mechanical components can promise reliable performance, ask for vehicle ownership and maintenance records. Red flags to be aware of include:


  • Vehicle from an area subject to major flooding
  • Vehicles involved in one or more accidents
  • Salvage title


Unique Enterprises provides Carfax reports for every vehicle on our lot.

Financing Options

When you find a used car that fits your needs and has the features and options you want, you need to make sure it’s going to be affordable. Inquire about financing options and interest rates. While a rock-bottom monthly payment may allow more spending money, you may end up paying thousands more in interest over the lifetime of the loan. If possible, maximize your down payment and try to secure lower interest rates to keep the total cost of the vehicle as close as possible to the sticker or negotiated price.


Most used vehicles are no longer covered under manufacturer warranties, but you want to have some coverage to protect you. Unique Enterprises offers a standard warranty (15-day, 500-mile coverage on drivetrain) plus a number of extended warranty options (additional charges apply).
