Why it’s important to buy a car from a dealer

At Werribee Mitsubishi we’ve been selling and servicing both new and used cars for over twenty years. Our state-of-the-art showroom allows customers to browse vehicles with the support of friendly, professional staff - who always look forward to assisting you.

If you’re thinking about buying a used car but you’re unsure about whether to find a private seller or a certified dealer, we’ve put together a list of reasons why buying from a dealer can benefit you.

Buying a new or used car can be very stressful and sometimes complicated. Reputable car dealerships build meaningful relationships with customers so that when you make your next exciting purchase, you’ll be assured of high-quality after-care, warranty, and servicing in the long-run. Using a dealership really can eliminate the stress from buying your next vehicle.

Expert after-care

At Werribee Mitsubishi we use advanced manufacturing technology and world-class control systems to ensure superior quality servicing and years of driving pleasure. Our Mitsubishi Technician Training programs guarantee that our Mitsubishi specialist technicians have the skills required to service, maintain, and repair our entire range of new and used vehicles.


When a dealership like Werribee Mitsubishi sells a used car, we fix up cosmetic faults and give the vehicle a full mechanical check to make sure it’s roadworthy. Having a qualified mechanic look over your car before you buy means that you can trust that the condition of your vehicle is what we say it is.

Full transparency

Wondering what your new car has been through in the past? As a licenced dealer, we are required to provide a full car history check, so you’re never left pondering about your purchase.

We must also adhere to stringent motor car trader obligations and a code of ethics, which protect buyers from unethical behaviour. When you buy a car privately, you aren’t guaranteed these securities - which can often leave buyers worried, long after buying their vehicle.

Did you know there are statutory warranties enforced by the government to protect used car buyers from major faults? If you buy from a private seller, you’re essentially offered no protection if your car develops problems down the line. We’re here for you long after you’ve driven away.

Keep it simple

Buying a used car from Werribee Mitsubishi means that your drive-away price includes all of your costs, which means you can get on with enjoying your new purchase without the hassle.

When you choose to buy a new or used car from a dealer rather than a private seller, we’ll take care of the paperwork, transfers, and registration processes for you. When you don’t have to worry about registrations and transfers, you can focus on your exciting decision with a clearer mind.

Professional advice

When you buy a used car from a dealer, you can ask as many questions as you like, and we love to answer them. We have the experience to help you make the best decision for you. We know our vehicles inside out, so you don’t have to do hours of research yourself – just ask our friendly team.


Our financing possibilities give customers the benefit of competitive car loan rates and trade-ins – something that’s rarely possible when you choose a private dealer.

Our handy finance calculator can help you figure out the repayment options that work for you. Alternatively, fill out our finance enquiry form and someone from our Finance Services team will get back to you with a quick and accurate response.
