There’s a lot to think about even when buying used cars. You might be looking at budget, amount of seating, storage and maybe even weather conditions. It’s important that your purchase is worth the investment. Here are some features to keep an eye out for the next time you go look at a car:
First and foremost, there are some new features that can help keep you and your new vehicle safe. If the used cars you’re considering are newer models, it might have automatic emergency braking. This means that your vehicle will apply the brakes on its own when it senses a vehicle or a pedestrian is in the way. You can also find audible collision warning features.
Also, be on the lookout for cars that offer a blind-spot warning. This feature can be visual, such as an icon on the rearview mirror, or audible. There are other automatic features, such as aromatic high beams that turn on and off depending on traffic or a rear cross-traffic warning system for backing your car out.
Some of the newer convenience features can also help you drive more safely. For example, some vehicles now have 360-degree-surround-view camera systems. These can give you a bird’s eye view of your vehicle and help you check for objects, pets, or children nearby.
You can also watch for fast USB charging, auto-dimming mirrors, and built-in navigation systems. These features can prevent you from being distracted and focus on your driving.
