What to Look for in a Used SUV for Your Family?

Fortunately, shopping for a used SUV is a lot like shopping for a new one. There are a variety of things you should to prioritize when buying for your family, such as:
Safety Ratings
One advantage that pre-owned vehicles have is that they have been pretty thoroughly tested. Check out the safety ratings and see if they’re up to your standards. Keep in mind that safety tests used to be less strict. A 5-star rating in 2009 isn’t the same as one in 2022.
Seating Convenience
Space is always good, but it’s also important for that space to be easily accessible. Look for 2nd-row seats that slide for easier entry and exit and for SUVs that have been noted for ease-of-use of their LATCH systems.
Accident History
Always check out the vehicle history report before buying a used SUV. Minor scrapes and dings are fine, but you should generally steer clear of vehicles that have been involved in a major accident.
Reliability Scores
One upside of buying pre-owned vehicles is that there has been time to study the dependability of the specific make and model you’re checking out. While you’re at it, look up the cost-to-own statistics to get a better sense of how much ownership might cost over time.
