When it’s time for a used MINI model, look no further than MINI of Peabody. There are many benefits to purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, like a wider inventory, lower rates of depreciation, and access to big savings.

But you want to be sure it’s the best pre-owned vehicle for your needs. Check the following areas and parts before signing on the dotted line.

Mileage and Age

The mileage on a pre-owned vehicle matters much more than the age of the car. An older car with fewer miles can last longer than a younger car with a lot of mileage, so look into both age and mileage to get a sense of how hard the vehicle was driven.

Accident and Service History

A past accident isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker, but you want to know about any history of accidents so you can factor potential repair costs into your budget. You also want to look at MINI service history, since a comprehensive service history indicates safe and careful driving.

Wheel Wells and Tires

Before you get behind the wheel of a pre-owned vehicle, you want to check the areas more prone to corrosion or rust, like the fenders and wheel wells.

Rust can be difficult, if not impossible, to fix, and you’ll want to move onto the next car if you notice it. The tires can also tell you a lot about how and where the vehicle was driven.
