After you've done the research, taken the test drive, and have driven off the lot, you're going to be satisfied with the latest vehicle you've added to your life. It's possible that car may be a pre-owned favorite you found in the inventory at Maguire Dealerships.

Our team is here to explain what to do after buying a used car from our location near Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen. When you know exactly what to do, it makes your Syracuse and Baldwinsville adventures that much better. Contact us today!

Taking Care of the Important Paperwork

When buying a used car, the title and registration paperwork will need to be formalized. If you choose to buy from a private seller, you'll have to bring the title, proof of insurance, identification, and proof of address to the DMV.

Remember, you can't drive the car legally until you've had the title and registration transferred. Buy a car from our dealership, and we'll take care of this for you.

Have the Car Insured

You might want to look into insurance estimates before buying a car, so you're able to plan around monthly payments.

If you buy your next pre-owned car here at our dealership, we'll walk you through the necessary paperwork to complete the process. Again, if you buy through a private seller, you'll have to make sure the car is insured before driving.

Think about the different coverages and protection you'll need, and how it may fit into your lifestyle. Perhaps you need to think about updating your insurance, as you now have kids sharing the car with you, or you've just had a baby and want to be sure they're covered.

This is a good time to review contact information and make any adjustments to insurance if you already were covered with your previous car.

Check Out the Owner's Manual

The owner's manual provides plenty of information about the car you've just purchased. Of course, you don't need to read it from front to back, but it helps to know when an oil change is needed or when the tires should be rotated.

We're always here to handle any service and maintenance your vehicle requires. Schedule an appointment with us on our website, or give us a call when it's time for that first visit.

Buying a Used Car? Feel Good About Your Purchase

We offer a 30-day exchange policy for any pre-owned vehicle bought from our dealership.

If you don't absolutely love your car, it can be exchanged for another within 30 days or 1,000 miles of driving. It's our promise to you!

Now that you know what to do after buying a used car, it's time to visit a Maguire Dealership near Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen.
