Used Car Dealership

Q: Do you sell pre-owned vehicles?

A: Yes. We exclusively sell used trucks, cars, and SUVs. This allows us to focus fully on building our pre-owned inventory and meeting the specific needs that come with shopping for used cars for sale in Dallas, TX.

Q: Why choose Moda Cars over a new car dealership?

A: Our flexibility when it comes to your credit, a wide selection of quality vehicles, and treating you as more than just another number is what makes us a great choice for many.

Q: Why is test driving a car or SUV important?

A: Although our showroom of new cars may look appealing, only a test drive can help you determine whether you would prefer a 2018 Subaru Outback or a 2018 Subaru Legacy. Test driving a Subaru vehicle helps you decide what feels more comfortable behind the wheel and on the road and allows you to check out several special features as well.

Q: What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned?

A: If you want more options (and wish to save some money), buying a used or certified pre-owned car is a great way to get a great vehicle. Our used cars are available in a wide variety of years, makes, and models. Our certified pre-owned Subaru cars, however, are lightly-used recent models that have undergone a 152-point inspection.

Q: How important is car maintenance?

How do I know when I need an oil change?

A: Our service technicians recommend that you change the oil in your Subaru vehicle every three months (or every 3000 - 5000 miles) to keep all of your engine's many parts thoroughly lubricated. Our service center also provides several amenities to help you stay productive while we service your Subaru vehicle.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BASIC RATE AND AN INCLUSIVE RATE?

What does it mean if my “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on?

When your check engine light comes on, this is a warning that something on your vehicle is either not working properly, or is about to break. The check engine light is connected with the computerized system that is constantly monitoring your vehicle’s functions. You may not notice any problems when your check engine light turns on, but this is because often it is warning you before the problem occurs.

What should you do when your check engine light turns on?

Take it to your trusted auto repair shop. Your mechanic has the necessary tools to read your vehicle’s computerized system and determine what has caused your check engine light to turn on. The sooner you take your automobile in the better! Catching a possible problem before it breaks completely will save you time and hassle. Remember, preventative auto maintenance is much cheaper than advanced auto repairs!

When should I get my oil changed?

When you should get your oil changed depends on your vehicle and the type of oil you are using, and you should refer to your vehicle’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation. Typically speaking, you should change your oil every 3,000-5,000 miles. Make sure you keep up with your Houston oil changes to keep your car running smoothly!

I got a flat tire. Do I have to buy a new tire or is tire repair possible?

Tire repair is possible, depending on what caused the flat tire and the amount of damage. You will need to bring your tire to an auto repair shop or mechanic you trust and have them determine whether you need a new tire or not. If they fix your tire, make sure to confirm with them that their tire repair will hold for the remaining life of the tire. Houston tires have to endure a lot!

How do I make sure my car battery has a good electrical connection?
