Buying the Right Used Car for You


If you’re in the market for a used car, it may seem nearly impossible to make the right choice. Do you look online? Go to used car lots? There are hundreds of options, so here, we’ll give you a few tips so you can narrow down your search and find the perfect car.

Shop at a reputable dealer. They get first pick on late model cars, so a not-too-old vehicle with low mileage is always a good bet. A dealer will thoroughly check the car so you’ll know it is mechanically sound. Plus, a dealer will stand behind the car after you purchase it, so if there are any unexpected issues, you will get good service in dealing with them.

Research online. If you are interested in a specific make and model, do your research so you know if some model years are better than others. You will also get a good idea of a reasonable price for the car.

Stick to your budget. It’s easy to look at a more expensive car and somehow justify the purchase, but you will regret it once you start making payments.

Be willing to walk away. No deal is one-of-a-kind. If you are unsure, use your head instead of your heart and wait for the next vehicle that catches your eye. Chances are, that will happen sooner than you think.

Top 3 Things You Must Know About the 2016 Kia Forte

As a compact car, the 2016 Kia Forte may not be what you expect. Generally, compact cars have few features that make them stand out and offer average performance, which is also expected since most people don’t buy a compact expected to be the fastest on the road. They are usually all about size. However, with a Forte from Bessada Kia, you might be surprised by some of details of this vehicle. Here are three things you should note about this model.


  1. More Space Inside


One of the downsides of a compact is the interior space usually takes a hit, but not with the Forte. This car actually has a spacious interior in the sedan and coupe models. It certainly isn’t what you expect when you get inside and have plenty of leg and head room.


  1. Good Equipment Options


One of the impressive things about this car is the equipment options. Standard on the LX trim, you get USB connections and Bluetooth. The options include keyless entry, keyless start, xenon headlights and steering assist. Other options that are available are probably more high end than what you’d expect and include heated seats.


  1. Good Power


With a small car, fast acceleration isn’t usually expected, but this car gives you unexpected pep. There are three engine options, all of which offer excellent fuel economy. The 1.6 liter four-cylinder is the strongest and most turbocharged. The 2.0 liter four-cylinder is a step below but boosts the Forte to the top of its class.


These three highlights just touch on the great things we could say about the 2016 Forte. This car is so much more than your standard compact. You’ll definitely be amazed at what it has to offer when you take it out on a test drive. If you want a small car that acts like its bigger competitors, then it is well worth considering a Forte.
