What to Know When Shopping for Used Chevy Cars
Buying a used car may seem like a complicated task, but with a little preparation, you can pick out one of our pre-owned Chevy cars for sale with confidence. We’ve got options for you here at Patriot Chevrolet Limerick in Limerick, PA, and some solid tips to consider.
Research Cars for Sale
Knowing what you want and need in a car will help narrow down your choices and make the whole process of buying a new-to-you vehicle a bit easier.
Start with the big considerations — do you want a compact car, sedan, SUV, or truck? Then decide which factors are most important to you: the price, the features, the gas mileage, or some other non-negotiable. Next, make a list of options and divide them in to need and want.
Finally, take a look at our online inventory of used cars and trucks we have here at your nearest Chevrolet dealer. You can sort by model, trim, features, body style, and other elements to see what’s available. Make a list of the models that fit your criteria, and contact us to set up test drives.
The Difference Between CPO and Used Cars
Chevrolet CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) cars are used vehicles that meet a strict standard of quality, and are as close to new as you can get. CPO vehicles pass a 172-point inspection and reconditioning process, have less than 75,000 miles, and are under six years old. They also come with extended warranties, and are priced higher than the usual used vehicle. We have Certified Pre-Owned Chevy cars on our lot that you can check out for yourself.
Used cars that are not CPO may be older, or have more miles. They won’t come with any additional warranties, but they also won’t come with the higher sticker price.
Have a Finance Plan for Your Car Purchase
One of the benefits of buying a used car versus a new one is the lower cost, but you should still have a finance plan in place. Figure out how much money you’d like to use as a down payment, if you’ll be trading in another car, and your overall budget.
Check out our online finance center, where you can fill out an application, and use our payment calculator to figure out what your estimated monthly payments might be. We also have special offers on used Chevy cars to consider.
Once you know how much money you want to spend, and what kind of used car you’d like to spend it on, Patriot Chevrolet Limerick can help you with the rest.
