Randy Sattler & Craig Rogne joined the program today to talk used cars! From data services for used cars to inspections by your friendly mechanic to bringing it in to the Rydell Auto Group and having it inspected… Randy & Craig talk best practices for getting the most out of your Used Car search.

We also talk about sitting down and making a budget that INCLUDES an extended warranty and taking your time to that you find exactly what you want at a price you can afford.

The Rydell Guys give GREAT ADVICE for used car buyers: (1) car data is a tool, nut normally not 100% complete, (2) have it inspected by someone you trust or bring it to the Rydell Auto Group and use a business you can trust, (3) make a budget that includes money for an extended warranty and finally (4) take your time.
