7 Steps After Buying a Used Car

Cover all your bases as a car owner by following these seven steps after buying a used car in McAllen:

  1. Get Car Insurance– This is a legal requirement to drive and can help protect you and your passengers in Pharr.
  2. Transfer the Title– A dealership will transfer the title to you, but if you purchase from a private seller in Edinburg, you’ll need to do it.
  3. Register the Car: Car dealerships will handle this paperwork, but again, you’ll need to register with the DMV if you purchase from a private seller.
  4. Schedule Service: You’ll want to find a trusted mechanic, like those at the Burns Motors, Ltd. service center, and make sure that your vehicle is in good shape and that the service is up to date.
  5. Review the Owner’s Manual: Familiarize yourself with the owner’s manual so that you know how to care for your vehicle and how to use features like your key fob.
  6. Check for Recalls: Both new and used vehicles can be subject to a recall if a performance or safety issue is noted. Keep an eye out for any recalls that might affect you.
  7. Consider an Extended Warranty: Extended warranties can help cover your vehicle if there are issues, however, each one is different, so it’s important to find one that makes sense for your needs.
