Buying a Used Vehicle FAQ


Should I Buy a Used Car?

Absolutely! In addition to the upfront savings, there are so many benefits of buying a used car! A few decades ago, buying a used vehicle was a roll of the dice. You had no idea if the car you were looking at was a lemon, if it had been in accidents, or if it had been properly maintained before it wound up on a used car lot. However, thanks to certified pre-owned programs, like the Buick and GMC Certified Pre Owned program, buying a used vehicle is always a good idea; not only because it saves you money, but it also comes with total peace of mind.

Let’s explore some common questions and uncover why your next vehicle should be a certified pre-owned GMC or Buick!

What are the Benefits to Buying a Used Car?

The main reason that many shoppers look for a used car is because of the upfront savings. A new car depreciates roughly 20% after its first year of service, and continues to lose roughly 10% of its value each year thereafter. Buying a quality used vehicle, such as a certified pre-owned vehicle, lets you enjoy the monetary savings, while enjoying the peace of mind that you’re buying a quality used vehicle that has been vetted.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Every Chevy, Buick, or GMC Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle is a quality used vehicle that has been thoroughly inspected for quality before being offered for sale. In fact, each CPO Chevy, Buick, and GMC must be less than five years old and have less than 75,000 miles.

Additionally, each vehicle must pass a 172-point mechanical inspection and undergo reconditioning to ensure that it is up to our standards.

Each CPO Chevy, Buick, and GMC vehicle is also backed by an exclusive two year/24,000 mile maintenance plan. Offering total peace of mind, each CPO vehicle is backed by additional warranty coverage and comes with a three day/150 mile exchange policy.

What Do I Need to Check Before Buying a CPO Vehicle?

While buying a used car from an independent used car dealer may require extensive inspections and meticulous test drives before buying a vehicle, buying a CPO Buick or GMC from us is easy because each one has been extensively inspected to assure its quality. Additionally, each model is backed by a warranty for total peace of mind.

Each CPO vehicle also comes with a vehicle history report to give you insight on its past. When you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle from us, the only thing you’ll need to worry about is which model you want to take home!
