Lexus of Mobile’s Pre-Owned Car Buying Guide in Mobile, AL

While our team at Lexus of Mobile will always recommend browsing our selection of new Lexus models, our pre-owned selection is as quality as they come. You can rest assured of our pre-owned models’ value — each one must complete a multipoint inspection performed by our certified technicians before we post the listing online. Plus, we think you’ll like our prices. If you’d like to discover how to receive the best price possible on your pre-owned vehicle purchase at our dealership, read our Pre-Owned Buying Guide below.

Calculate the Value

Once you know the body style, make and model that you like the most, you’ll want to gain an understanding of the current market climate. It may have been a few years since you bought your last vehicle, or perhaps you researched the latest market trends a few months ago. Either way, vehicle prices change frequently, so research using reliable sources like Kelley Blue Book® and Edmunds to find the average price ranges for the model you want. Our dealership also provides a trade-in form if you’d like to calculate the value of your current model.

Determine the Vehicle’s History

Our team has already done the hard work for you — every pre-owned vehicle listing online has a CARFAX® icon underneath the short summary of vehicle information. Click that icon and you’ll be taken to a new tab with the full CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™, which details the vehicle’s maintenance history, number of owners, any title changes and, if applicable, mileage discrepancies. You’ll learn if the model has any open recalls or valid warranties. The VIN is also listed, so you can run your own CARFAX® report to compare to ours.

Look Under the Hood

While the vehicle’s maintenance history and our own multipoint inspection has cleared most pre-owned vehicles of any mechanical problems, you are more than welcome to inspect the model inside and out. Your peace of mind matters to us, which is why we can ask one of our technicians to walk over and go over their checklist with you. In general, our technicians are searching for strange noises or vibrations, smells, leaks, tears, etc. Our goal is to sell you a pre-owned vehicle that we’d drive ourselves.

Take a Long Test Drive

The test drive may be one of the most important steps since it can make or break your decision. If you aren’t a fan of the vehicle’s handling, technology interface or driver’s seat, then you may want to keep looking. The test drive is the perfect time to consider all those questions that our online listing can’t really answer. Take your time, and be sure to ask every question that comes to mind along the way. Our team would love to help!
