How CARFAX Helps You Locate One-Owner Used Cars in Fremont, OH

Used vehicles with fewer past owners are automatically the most desirable among our inventory at Advantage Ford Fremont. Used cars that pass through fewer hands are much more likely to have fewer issues related to poor maintenance and poor driving habits. This makes them more appealing to customers in the market for a used ride. It's also why one-owner used cars often command higher prices than those with multiple previous owners.

Types of One-Owner Cars Available in Fremont, OH

It's no secret that certain makes dominate lists of vehicles owned by the least number of drivers over longer periods. Topping the list are cars, minivans, and SUVs by Subaru and Toyota. In general, larger vehicles designed to serve as towing/hauling workhorses and group transportation tend to have two or fewer owners over longer periods. Of the makes mentioned above, the models Subaru Outback, Subaru Forester, Toyota Highlander, and Honda CR-V dominate the upper ranks.

Other Popular One-Owner Vehicles

In the sedan and coupe categories of one-owner cars, Toyota, Mazda, and Chevrolet occupy the top five. Used light-duty and heavy-duty pickups boasting a single owner include Toyota, Nissan, Ford, and GMC models. The Chevrolet Silverado makes the list as well. As expected, Volvo, Acura, and Lexus top the list of luxury cars with high owner satisfaction and, thus, few or just one owner.

Why Chose a One-Owner Car?

There are quite a few benefits to purchasing a one-owner used car. One-owner used cars tend to have more complete maintenance records, having circulated through fewer hands. People can also have vastly different driving habits and ideas about optimal maintenance. A car with multiple previous owners is much more likely to have gaps in its maintenance records or sustained wear/tear from diverse driving styles.

Unfortunately, some drivers trade in their vehicles after encountering mechanical or other problems. If the subsequent owner purchases the vehicle without information about its problems, the problems may just get worse and worse. The probability of this scenario is lower with used cars that have just one former owner.

A used car with one former owner is also more appealing. It feels better to know that fewer people have driven the used ride you purchase for yourself or your family. Heads up: cars with more than one previous owner aren't necessarily a red flag. Sports cars and racing-inspired cars tend to change hands frequently. In other cases, drivers want a newer vehicle every three or four years, seeking better fuel economy, advanced driving assist, and trend-forward tech features.
