Used Car Buying Tips

Honest Auto Advice for Farmington, Rosemount & Lakeville, MN

Some cars are definitely worth putting money into, but only if the price reflects its true condition.

The Look

Looks can be very deceiving at times. Therefore, it is important to remember that a nice polish job or flashy exterior does not always represent the quality of the vehicle itself. Although it is common to pay more for a better-looking car, there are many more factors to keep in mind when purchasing a pre-owned car.


When considering how much you are willing to pay, examining the interior of the car is important. The condition, whether it is excellent or tattered, says a lot about the person who previously owned it and therefore how the rest of the car was maintained.


Inspecting the tires is often an ignored task when shopping for a vehicle. Look at the tire quality (bald, average or new), the kind of tire and if each of the tires matches one another.


It is important to do some research about current car prices in the market place. By checking with your bank or researching online ( or, you will avoid overpaying for a car or getting scammed.

I heard about Gunner's Garage from my sister who said it was a place where a person could go and trust Guy and Josh. I had never meet them before, however after the first time there when they told me I didn't need a fuel pump I knew I was in the right place. Another mechanic told me I did need one to the tune of about $500

I have come to trust Guy and Josh to do what is necessary to keep my car in good running condition. When they find that nothing needs to be done they do not charge an outrages fee for looking it over. I have sent a number of people I work with to Gunner's and they fine it the most respectful garage they have been to, they feel confident and comfortable in what they are being told regarding their car. I highly recommend Gunner's Garage.
