Lofi Motors Guide to Used Car Buying

​The easiest way to save cash when buying a car or truck is to purchase a used car, truck, or SUV instead of a new vehicle. When you buy a new car, the second you leave the dealer's lot, it rapidly loses value, losing a significant amount in the first few years of ownership. Expect to pay less with cars for sale from small, independent dealers, such as Lofi Motors.

When you buy a used car, the original owner absorbs the pain of its depreciation during its early years. You will pay much less than you would have if you had purchased the car new. Considering a used vehicle over a new one = savings!


1. Set a Car-Buying Budget You Can Afford

Setting a used car buying budget isn’t as simple as looking for a pre-owned vehicle that gets a monthly payment you know you can manage. Do you need a vehicle with lower gas mileage? If not, consider a more fuel-efficient vehicle. The savings at the pump add up quickly! Every little bit helps in today's budget.

The difference in cost of ownership will leave money in your pocket, or even the ability to pay a little extra each payment and get the title even quicker than anticipated. Lofi Motors believes in this and works hand in hand with Corpus Christi customers to plan a path to success. Lofi Motors takes pride in helping Corpus Christi choose the perfect used vehicle for your lifestyle, family, and budget.

2. Find the Right Used Car for the Corpus Christi Lifestyle

It’s important to think about not only the size and performance of the vehicles you are considering, but also their fuel economy, safety ratings, and cost to insure. Making sure you drive home wit the perfect choice will ensure you enjoy your purchase for years to come. Style, comfort, usability, and satisfaction will keep that new purchase excitement alive!

When you buy a pre-owned car, you can get options and features at a small percentage of the price they'll cost you on a new car. Option packages and higher trim levels don't command nearly the same premiums on used vehicles as they do on brand-new cars. Demand for options and extra comforts is why Lofi Motors is very selective in the vehicles chosen to feature the Lofi Motors name. We don't just sell what we offer, we drive them as well!

3. Decide Where to Buy a Used Car

Independent used car dealerships such as Lofi Motors are typically small, locally owned businesses. Lofi Motors buys and sell used vehicles, arrange financing, and take care of the purchase paperwork. Most have less total overhead than a typical new car dealer and can pass the savings on to you. South Texas knows where to get a reliable used vehicle, it's Lofi Motors!

From the test drive to your last payment, we provide quality used vehicles and friendly customer service. We don't want to just sell you your next vehicle, we strive to be your life long dealership!
