While many people prefer the allure of a new car, some buyers consistently turn to the unmistakable value presented by used and pre-owned vehicles. And if you’re looking for the best selection of used vehicles, McKenney Chevrolet will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

We are home to a vast range of high-quality, pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs from all manufacturers. Even if you don’t know which pre-owned vehicle would be best, we can conduct an in-depth needs analysis to uncover your unique needs and guide you to the best solution. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the top benefits of buying a used car from McKenney Chevrolet.

Used Vehicles Are More Affordable

Buying a vehicle is a very big deal. It’s the second-largest purchase most of us will make in our lifetime. However, if you purchase a new car, your purchase will be substantially larger. According to Experian Automotive, the average new car transaction is a bit above $37,000. On the other hand, the average used car price is around $20K. Because used vehicles are noticeably more affordable, you’ll enjoy lower monthly payments and unrivaled savings.

Get a Big Bang for Your Buck

When you choose a quality used vehicle, you won’t only pay less —you’ll get a big bang for your buck and purchase a nicer, well-equipped vehicle. In other words, you can get a lot more used car than a brand spanking new vehicle. While you may not be able to afford the new luxury model you’ve been wanting, but you can get similar features on a vehicle that may be one to two years older. Most importantly, manufacturers are no longer redesigning their vehicles every year, so purchasing a used vehicle doesn’t carry the same stigma as it previously did. And when a high-quality used car shows up in your driveway, your neighbors do not have to know it’s not a new vehicle.

Cheaper Car Insurance

One of the key factors used to determine the amount you pay for auto insurance is the value of the vehicle. Simply put, the more expensive the vehicle, the more your insurance premium will be. Since used vehicles have a lower value than newer vehicles, the cost of insurance will typically be less. And you be eligible to save even more because certain insurance elements may be dropped.

Used Car Warranties

Many used vehicles will have at least part of the original new car warranty remaining. And even if the vehicle doesn’t have a remaining warranty, you still have several options and can choose from a vast range of different types of extended warranties. The experts at McKenney Chevrolet will work closely with you to create the most ideal extended warranty package. In general, there are two different types of extended warranty coverages you can opt for:

Powertrain covers the engine, transmission, and major components
Bumper-to-Bumper warranties cover almost everything else.
At McKenney Chevrolet, we’ll help you choose the most practical and efficient warranty for your driving habit and budget.

Gain an Excellent Peace of Mind

Previously, when you purchased a used vehicle, you ran the risk of “buying someone else’s junk”. Today, you can exponentially minimize your risk and save money thanks to the age of information. Companies like AutoCheck and CarFax offer comprehensive vehicle history reports based on each car, truck, or SUV’s vehicle identification number. These reports offer access to volumes of key information including:

  • Mileage verification
  • Number of owners
  • How the vehicle was previously used
  • Number of reported accidents
  • Whether it was declared a total loss by the insurance company
  • And much more

In addition, both services offer some version of a guarantee. For instance, the CARFAX Buyback Guarantee will buy the vehicle back from you if you unknowingly purchase a vehicle with a DMV-branded issue, such as Flood, Lemon, Rebuilt, etc. With services like AutoCheck and CARFAX, you can purchase a used vehicle with a much higher degree of certainty and peace of mind.

Certified and Thoroughly Inspected

If you’re still on the fence about purchasing a used vehicle, a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet may be your best solution. As a better kind of used vehicle, CPO Chevrolets are newer pre-owned vehicles that are held to the highest level of excellence. To receive the label of CPO Chevrolet, the vehicle must:

  • Be within six current model years
  • Have a clean title and pass a Vehicle History Report
  • Have no more than 75,000 miles

Once the vehicle checks all of these boxes, it’s rigorously inspected, tested, and reconditioned. This means, if the Certified GM Technicians at McKenney Chevrolet find an issue, they will repair and restore it to factory quality. Because of all of the requirements and rigorous inspection criteria, we can stand behind our CPO with a full suite of enticing benefits:

  • A 12-Month/12,000-Mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty
  • ‘6-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Warranty with Roadside Assistance
  • The CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program with two visits
  • Not happy? No problem! You can bring it back to the dealer within the first 3 days or 150 miles
  • OnStar Services Trial
  • Free Vehicle History Report
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio trial
  • And more
