Ask any of our used car dealers and they’ll tell you, traveling by car is the best way to see the world. That said, not every car is prepared for the long-journey that road-tripping can require. Fortunately, at Van Horn Budget Auto, we can help you find a used vehicle that is up to the challenge.

One major thing you should consider when purchasing a used car for road-tripping is gas mileage. Fuel economy or the number of miles per gallon (mpg) can dramatically determine how much money you spend on your trip on gas, and how often you have to make pit stops at the gas station. The higher a car’s mpg rating, the less likely you’ll have to stop to fill up.

Another thing to consider is the amount of space in your car. Long trips require a lot of room for cargo and the occasional travel partner. So, in this instance, we’d suggest driving a sizeable SUV over something like a sedan or compact sports car. SUVs also tend to offer a more robust drivetrain, which can be incredibly helpful when driving through rough road conditions.

Last, but far from least, we recommend that you purchase a car from an automaker that is known for its reliability and longevity. That said, knowing which brand and which used SUV or pickup truck to choose from can be quite the challenge; this is where we come in.

At Van Hon Budget Auto all of the stress and intimidation of buying a used vehicle can be thrown out of the window. We’ll walk with you through the car buying process and help you ride off into the sunset behind the wheel of a used vehicle that is ready for the open road.
