Buying a used car can be a fun and fulfilling experience, especially at Arizona Car Sales. From the initial browsing process to the last test drive, we work tirelessly to create the ideal dealership experience. Of all of the aspects that make for a great used car buying experience, having a solid selection of choices can make all the difference. That said, plenty of our customers visit our dealership asking members of our sales team, ‘which used car should I buy?’ This is a fair question to ask as we offer many used cars for sale. You can find anything from sizeable family-centric SUVs to sporty sedans that provide the ultimate commuter experience. We see buying a car as a huge investment and strive to help you find a vehicle that you love to drive, no matter what your specific expectations may be.

The Connection Between Lifestyle and the Perfect Car

As a leading used car dealership in Mesa, Arizona, we believe that a massive part of what has made us one of the best is the fact that we understand that each driver is looking for a different kind of car. Some drivers want something fast and punchy, searching for a degree of performance that truly breaks the mold from what is expected in your typical vehicle. Others want something that is effective conserving fuel and is packed with infotainment features that make driving seamless.

A driver’s day to day can dramatically influence what kind of car you ought to purchase too. Say, for instance, you go off-roading on the weekends, and you want something that can handle some serious desert trail running. If that’s the case, you shouldn’t purchase a low-profile compact car. Instead, you should opt for a compact to full-size SUV that has a beefy drivetrain that is fully equipped for off-road driving. Alternatively, if you commute long distances daily, we suggest that you find a vehicle that is comfortable to drive and conserves fuel reasonably to make it easy on your wallet.

We consider preference and daily lifestyle whenever we help our customers find the perfect used vehicle. This is precisely the reason why we offer so many options at our dealership, as we want to give our customers the opportunity to find that ideal automotive fit.

Which Used Vehicle Should You Buy?

When you browse our used car showroom, you’ll find many different cars that are often defined by their body type, engine type, drivetrain, and size. If you’re looking for a vehicle with plenty of size and a solid suite of safety features, you may want to opt for a modern mid or full-sized SUV. We offer a wide variety of mid to full-sized SUVs in our showroom, and you’ll find vehicles from all kinds of manufacturers.

One vehicle we have seen on our lot at one point or another is the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. This model is a three-row full-size SUV that offers enough room for up to seven different passengers. When every seat in the SUV is filled, drivers will find about 16 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear. However, if you plan to use this sizeable utility vehicle for just cargo, you’ll have 79.8 cubic feet worth of cargo space to utilize.

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is also tooled with a series of safety features, including a multi-view rear camera system that provides drivers with a complete view of the vehicle’s surroundings. Coupled with a sonar parking sensor system, the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is the perfect pick for any driver who wants to take to the road with as little worry about safety as possible.

Many of our customers are regular commuters, who are looking for a simple, solid, and reliable sedan to transport them from point A to point B without spending too much money on fuel, all while enjoying every moment of the driving experience. There are many vehicles in our used car showroom that fit the bill of this description, but few manage to pull off these aspects quite as seamlessly as the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. This is a hybrid hatchback sedan that, thanks to its hybrid drivetrain, earns an incredible 133 miles per gallon. As a result, you and the gas station will more or less be strangers as you’ll drive for miles without even thinking about needing a fill-up. Toyota is no stranger to onboard comforts either, offering a plush and modern interior that will almost certainly impress.

Some of our customers are even looking for a vehicle that provides top-ranking power. Prioritizing things like horsepower, torque, towing capacity, and utility, these are the kinds of drivers who have a hankering for adventure and want a vehicle that won’t shrink in the face of a challenge.

At Arizona Car Sales, we offer a diverse selection of vehicles this description, but Jeep has always been the leader of the pack when it comes to manufacturing great off-road trekkers. You could find in our selection a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, but due to its popularity, these don’t always stay on our lot long.

The Trailhawk is an SUV equipped off the factory floor with a 4×4 drivetrain and built specifically for some off-road excursions. Tooled with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a zippy automatic transmission, and Jeep’s famously intuitive off-road system, trading pavement for dirt, mud, or snow should be hardly an issue.
