Pollard Used Cars - Used/CPO - Must-Have Used Car Amenities
When you’re looking for the perfect new-to-you car, there’s a lot to think about. Whether you’re looking for a family-hauler or a sports car, there are a few must-have features — and desirable add-ons — that you should prioritize in your next ride.
Comfortable and Adjustable Seats - In order to truly enjoy your new ride, you’ll need to have comfortable and safe seats. Make sure that the seats are adjustable to different passenger heights so that both short and long trips are more pleasant.
Rearview Camera – Though many new vehicles now come standard with rearview cameras, some older models don’t. Having a rearview camera can help in tricky parking situations and minimize the chance of accidents.
Phone Integration - Many infotainment systems come with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, which make it easy to access your phone’s features (like calling and texting) hands-free. This enhances the convenience and safety of each ride.
Driver-Assistive Safety Features - Driver-assistive safety features are something you should look for in a vehicle if you want more confidence behind the wheel.
Optional add-ons (and cost-savvy alternatives)
Wi-Fi - While many cars come with a Wi-Fi hotspot, for added convenience, this is something you can go without. An alternative would be to use your cell phone’s hotspot, which functions in the same way and doesn’t require a paid subscription.
DVD Player - While DVD players provide entertainment for long road trips, there is plenty of technology to keep kids and adults entertained without having it built into your car. Take portable DVD players and tablets, for example.
Apps – In-vehicle infotainment systems can be convenient, but you can typically access the same type of apps via your smartphone. If the car you’re looking at has phone integration, then you don’t need to prioritize an infotainment system.
