Kia has recently announced plans to make an online database of the certified used vehicles available at the automaker's dealerships, and provide prospective buyers with these cars' vehicle history reports.
The inventories will be listed on AutoTrader.com, and AutoCheck vehicle history reports will be available either online or at the dealership carrying the vehicle in question, according to Automotive News. The easy access to vehicle history reports is meant to boost consumer confidence when buying a used Kia, according to Tom Loveless, head of U.S. sales for the auto manufacturer.
More than 1,000 pre-owned vehicles are expected to be listed in the online inventory once the dealerships that carry used Kias comply with the changes, according to Brian Leitner, manager of the automotive business for the firm that administers Kia's certified used car program. There are currently approximately 500 vehicles listed in the database.
A certified used Kia may be among the best cars for bad credit, as many are highly affordable for most budgets. Drivers may want to peruse the new database to see if they can spot a car that features a clean vehicle history and a reasonable price tag, then fill out a car loan application to acquire financing.
