Top Reasons to Buy a Used Pickup at North Edmonton Kia

It doesn’t take much to convince an Edmonton driver why buying a used pickup would be a good idea for life across our province, but if you’re looking for a little extra about why you should make a truck purchase, read on as we list some of the top reasons why.


Whether it be a jobsite or taking it out into the backcountry, life here in Alberta is bound to get down and dirty when traversing the elements and weather that face us year-round. You need a vehicle that can stand up to all of this, and a truck does so with ease thanks to its reliable construction and off-road features.





Pickup trucks can get incredibly pricey, and that’s even before you customize it with add-ons and special features. Shopping for a used truck still gets you that pickup you want, albeit maybe a few years old, but allows you to pay much less than you would have new.




Added Features

One of the beauties of pickup trucks is their seemingly limitless ability to be modified or upgraded with features. Whether it be upfitting its physical style, or just adding on accessories to improve its safety, convenience, functionality, off-road ability or more, pickup trucks were made to be customized to meet your needs.





 Not only do new pickup trucks cost a lot, but they lose a ton of their value right off the bat. Ignore that depreciation by buying a used truck. Given how popular pickup trucks are here in Alberta, you can still properly maintain your truck and sell it for a great price without losing much of its value.

Understand Your Needs

Whenever people shop for things they tend to want the latest and greatest, and vehicle shopping is no stranger to this as well. When you’re shopping for a used pickup, be honest with yourself about what you’ll actually use it for and what features you actually may need. If you’re not going to be towing, you may not need that top-level towing package. This can help you further narrow down your choice.

Make Special Note of Specific Truck Features on Inspection

Our North Edmonton Kia inventory is of terrific quality to even be sold on our lot, but whenever you’re inspecting a potential vehicle, ensure that you give special attention to important truck features like the suspensions, 4x4 system, bed, towing and more to make certain they’re of the best quality.

Go on a Test Drive

This goes for every vehicle you're looking at, but especially so with a truck. Pickup trucks ride very differently from other types of vehicles, so take it for a test drive, run through all the features and ensure everything feels comfortable and convenient for you to operate.
