Buying a Used Car Checklist

  1. Make, Mileage & Model Year

    When comparing used cars near Manhattan, take your brand, mileage and model year preferences into account. These metrics often determine the price of the used Ford vehicle you want, so it’s important to keep your budget in mind.

  2. Exterior Components

    Even if you’ve seen photos of the pre-owned Ford or other used trucks you’re interested in, you should visually inspect the vehicle’s exterior in person before making a commitment. Let our team know if there are rusty components, scratches or dings that we didn’t initially point out.

  3. Interior Condition

    Look at the floors, dashboard and seating surfaces to ensure there aren’t stains, rips or burns our team didn’t notice. Feel free to test any of the interior amenities before you buy a used Ford as well.

  4. Test-Drive

    We recommend setting up a test-drive at our Kansas Ford dealership before signing on the dotted line. Once you get into the driver’s seat of the used F-150 or Edge you’re interested in, you’ll be able to listen to the engine, experience how it handles and test out the brakes.

  5. Used Car Specials

    Don’t forget to review our used Ford specials in Topeka while you’re shopping for a pre-owned Ranger or Super Duty® truck. You may be able to save big on one of our used cars for sale in Kansas.
