Shopping for a used car is like shopping for any other product: You have to do your homework. Here are a couple of steps you should consider taking before seeking a deal that makes you smile:
Once you narrow your consideration set, it may be time to engage with your salesperson to talk about financing options.
Some vehicles in our inventory are marked as “certified pre-owned,” and you may wonder what that means. It means you may be able to get more value out of your purchase. A certified pre-owned Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC from Stan McNabb Chevrolet of Columbia has been through a 172-point vehicle inspection and reconditioning process.
Designed by Chevrolet, this inspection process is among the most comprehensive in the auto industry today, covering bumper-to-bumper and everything in between. This includes a careful review of the air conditioning, engine, brakes, shocks, and other mechanical features, as well as aesthetic features such as the floor mats.
This comprehensive inspection gives us the full confidence to offer you an extended powertrain limited warranty, covering six years and 100,000 miles. You also are covered by an extended bumper-to-bumper warranty for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Click here to learn more about the certified pre-owned program.
Used cars offer many benefits for buyers — most notably, a lower total price, which likely also means you will pay less per month. But there is another pathway to a lower monthly payment that could have you driving a new vehicle from either the current or expiring model year. Have you considered leasing?
Auto leasing is an alternative method for financing a car. When you lease a car, you are essentially renting it from a dealership for an extended period, usually two or three years. Because of the way they are structured and calculated, leases often result in lower monthly payments.
The advantage of a lease is the opportunity to drive a brand new car for the specified period. Many dealerships also cover scheduled maintenance visits, so that’s another worry off your shoulders. On the flip side, leased vehicles often come with a yearly mileage maximum which is usually between 10,000 and 15,000 miles.
Also, at the end of the lease period, you have a decision to make. You either have to turn the car back in, or buy it outright, paying the dealer the what is known as the “residual value.”
