Shopping for a used car in Iowa often involves a lot of price-comparing online. But that sometimes doesn't tell the whole story. Just like with new vehicles, dealers like Deery of Ames will often run used car specials for their Iowa customers.

Iowa used car specials are a great way to find the perfect deal on the used car, truck, or SUV you've been looking for. Below, we're going to clear up some of the misconceptions about used car shopping, as well as used car dealers.

Used Car Specials - It's Not About the Brand

There's a common misconception that you should only buy a used car from an Iowa dealer that sells the same brand of vehicle. This makes sense if you're looking at certified pre-owned vehicles, as they can only be sold by authorized dealers. However, whether through trade-ins or outright purchases, dealers often have great deals on used cars from other brands. For instance, a Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealer like Deery of Ames will often have vehicles from Ford, Chevy, Honda, and many others.

In fact, used cars can often sell for a lower price at a dealer of a different brand. And not only is pricing competitive, Iowa used car dealers like Deery of Ames will also run specials on both their own brands and other used vehicles. Checking used vehicle specials, like the ones above, is a good way to stay on top of the latest deals on all brands of used cars at Deery of Ames.

Certified Pre-Owned Specials & Financing

As mentioned above, one of the biggest benefits of buying a used car at an authorized dealer is that you have access to certified pre-owned vehicles. Certified pre-owned vehicles are used cars that are rigorously inspected and conditioned, and also have to meet stringent standards set by the manufacturer. They're generally recent model years, and in very good condition.

While certified pre-owned vehicles may have slightly higher prices than other used cars that are on special, they also come with extended manufacturer warranties and great peace of mind due to their inspection and conditioning process. When shopping for used car specials, it's also a good idea to compare to certified pre-owned vehicles at the same dealer. It will depend on what you're looking for whether the extensive inspection and warranties are worth the additional price over a discounted used vehicle.
