Find used cars in Chula Vista at CarsDirect.com. As the 89th largest city in the nation and the 2nd largest city in San Diego County, Chula Vista is home to some 227,000 residents. With a mild climate that experiences a relatively moderate rainy season, the most you have to fear in purchasing a used car is the salt that blows off the coast. And with some of the messiest freeways in the state of California with I-5 and I-405, one does need to check maintenance histories before committing to a used vehicle. Make sure the oil has been changed regularly for vehicles in this area, as well as tires, brakes and alignment jobs. Stop and go traffic can wreak havoc on a vehicle with a prolonged commuter history. With the sea nearby, as unlikely as it might sound, check the exterior of the vehicle for chipping paint, which can be an indication of rust that has been covered with a cheap paint job. Do not purchase a vehicle with any signs of severe rust, as corroding metal will prove costly five years from now in repairs and damage, not to mention the overall decrease in safety. The nice thing about rust, as damaging as it might be, is that it can be easily spotted and thus avoided. Whether you are in the used car market for a commuter vehicle or a safer family car, you can be reassured that CarsDirect.com will bring you the best cars at the greatest deals right to you in the comfort of your own home!
