Buying a Reliable Used SUV

Are you looking for a used vehicle, but hesitating between different models? We’ll help you decide based on your needs. Read the following if you don’t want to miss out.


The Types of SUVs on the Market

Did you know there are five types of SUVs in Canada? Each type was made to meet specific needs.

The first type is the subcompact SUV. They’re small SUVs that have good fuel efficiency and that can easily navigate urban centres. We can mention the Honda HR-V, Audi Q3 (luxury SUV) and the Hyundai Kona.

The second type is the compact SUV. They’re even more popular, because they’re versatile SUVs that are agile both in the city and on the highway. They’re pre-owned vehicles with five doors and five seats. We’re referring to vehicles like the Toyota RAV4, Volkswagen Tiguan and Nissan Juke.

The third type is the mid-size SUV, which is roomier and more robust. It also comes with more substantial cargo volume. This type of SUV has impressive dimensions and can easily accommodate five occupants. The best examples of this type of SUV are without a doubt the Kia Sorento SUV or the Toyota 4Runner.

The fourth type is the mid-size SUV with three rows of seats. This type of SUV is practical for a bigger family. Generally, it can welcome seven or even eight passengers. We can mention the Dodge Journey (7-Seater SUV), Kia Telluride and the Toyota Highlander.

Finally, the last type of SUV is the full-size SUV. We’re talking about vehicles like the Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia. These SUVs have a length above 5,000 mm; they are big machines that can welcome eight occupants.

Which Option Should You Choose?

Now that you know a little bit more about the types of SUVs on the Canadian market, it’ll be easier to find the vehicle that best meets your needs and wants.

In fact, your choice should be based on various factors, including the following:

  • The budget allocated for your used SUV

  • Your needs 

  • Your expectations

These three criteria are often the main ones that come up when choosing a used car or a used SUV for sale. It’s also important to shop your vehicle carefully to avoid unpleasant surprises. 

Choose an Experienced Dealership

Since it’s a significant expense, choosing a SUV for sale is not a decision you can take lightly.

Choose a reliable used dealership that enjoys a great reputation. You’ll easily recognize such a dealership by its years of service, available inventory, detailed knowledge of used cars and much more. You can also tell by the quality of the reviews that have been left by people who have dealt with the dealership before.

In addition, your decision to get a used SUV should also be based on certain other factors. First of all, make sure that the vehicle you want has a CARFAX report. This report should tell you a lot about the history of the SUV you’re looking into. The “Good Deal Car Gurus” designation should also help you make a sensible decision. Don’t hesitate to ask for a test drive and discuss with the sales representative. Take the time to examine the vehicle and check the odometer.

These days used vehicles are a good deal, notably because a reliable SUV will do a great job for many years to come. Car manufacturers make vehicles that are long-lasting.

In short, when considering the best SUV, put your trust in an experienced dealership that offers vehicles with credible documentation that can be verified.

Finally, make sure that the used SUV you’re about to get has undergone a thorough inspection before it was put back on the market.
