buying used car seattle washington checklistPreparation proves the key to success. This is the philosophy you embrace, with every day meticulously analyzed, organized, and planned. You don’t believe in surprises. You instead believe in contingencies - which is why you’ll fuse your search for used cars with an inspection checklist.

To ensure that you find the perfect pre-owned platform, Sound Ford Renton recommends creating a comprehensive checklist - one that will allow you to examine every vehicle, noting advantages and potential disadvantages with ease. Observe the condition of each model’s:


Exterior - windshield and wipers, body panels, trunk and hood seam alignments, headlight functionality.

Tires - tread patterns, alignments.

Engine - battery terminal appearance, signs of leakage or spillage, presence of unexpected odors.

Suspension - body alignment, responses while cornering.

Interior - cabin and seat materials, condition of all mechanicals (including air conditioning, heating, stereo, and power windows), functionality of gauges and lights, alignment of doors.

Mechanical - brake responses, transmission responses, steering responses, locking mechanisms responses.

By assessing each of these elements, drivers can quickly identify the used cars that reflect their needs - sparing them the frustration of a poor choice.

Sound Ford Renton strives to provide our customers with the best used cars on the market. Bring you checklist by our lot to see all of your criteria met and expectations exceeded.
