How can you say used cars are “the best way to buy?” Automotive and financial experts agree, the smartest way to buy a car, truck, or SUV is to purchase a low mileage, one owner like-new vehicle that is just one, two or three years old.
How important is service after the sale? Very important. Expert service from well trained technicians is VERY important to keep any vehicle in top condition
Why should pay SelectCar.com for used car advice? For many reasons, but here are just a few. If you are considering a low mileage vehicle that is in like-new condition, you want to be 100% sure it has been thoroughly inspected and importantly certified to be an accident free and a , one owner vehicle. You want to be sure your new car, truck or SUV has never been a rental unit. You’ll find the fee you pay SelectCar will be well worht it. Our advice on your trade alone will pay our fee.

Where did all these cars, trucks and SUV’s come from? Most the vehicles posted come from one of two sources. Either they are off lease, and were bought from Chase Automotive Financial the huge leasing company or other leasing company. Or they were bought from wholesalers who specialize in low mileage, one owner, 1, 2 or 3 year old vehicles. These vehicles are the hardest ones to find, but over the years, we’ve developed relationships with the people who have them.
Are any of these rental vehicles, flood, repaired or insurance loss vehicles? NO!! We recommend that you never buy them. Sometimes titles can we washed in certian states but not for any of these cars.
What do you mean by “full disclosure?” We’ll tell you whatever you want to know, if we know it. >From a CarFax report, to the age of the tires, we feel you have a right to know everything we know about the vehicle.
Are all these vehicles “one owner?” Yes. Without exception.
Were all these vehicles sold with a clean CarFax report, certified inspection, state inspection sticker? Yes, absolutely. CarFax screen view is free. it.
Were these vehicles under factory warranty when sold? Yes, most of these vehicles were still covered by some portion of the factory warranty coverage. p>
How much lower are these prices than other dealers? We don't know. All dealers have fixed overhead expenses. All Dealers have to make some sort of retail margins on their vehicles. Even a “volume dealer” has to cover fixed costs.
how do I “deal” or negotiate the price? If you like to haggle, or deal, there are plenty of dealers who do business that way. If you don't you may want to hire us as your buyer's broker. We make buying a pleasure by eliminating the things that drive people crazy. Our hourly fees for this service are very reasonable
Can you give me some examples of your cost savings and your fees? Here’s one that happened just the other week. We got a black 2004 Audi Allroad that was traded in at a Porsche dealer who didn’t want it sitting next to his Cayennes. It had 800 actual miles on it. On the same weekend that we got and sold our car, a Manhattan Audi dealer advertised in the New York Times the identical car—same color, same engine, same everything with 11,200 more miles for $3,000 more money than we were ablbe to buy it four our client. We have one more very happy customer on the road. Can we promise you that level of savings on every car? Honestly no. But we believe you’ll save anywhere from hundreds to thousands using us to as your agent. When you compare mileage, equipment, condition and vehicle history. We’ll even help you do the comparisons.
What do I do if I have a trade-ins? We can help you get the most for your trade-in. Of course, the best way for you to get the most for your trade is to retail it yourself. Put a for sale sign on it and park it in front of your house. But many people decide they just don’t want the hassle trying to do that themselves. Plus you will lose the sales tax deduction in most states. We’ll show you the current wholesale market value of your vehicle. And you can decide how you want to proceed. We'll explain the difference in wholesale and retail values
What will a dealer give me for my trade? Just like the value of the vehicles you want to buy, the value of the vehicles we buy depends on age, condition, history, color, equipment, and market demand. We'll explain how dealers buy at wholesale and sell at retail
As part of our service we’ll show you what vehicles similar to yours are currently worth on the wholesale market. If you want to get full retail value for your vehicle, your best option will be to clean up, repair and sell the vehicle yourself.
An interesting note: One trick that dealers play when selling new cars, is they jack up the value of your trade-in, so you think you’re getting $5,000 for a car when they are actually only giving you $3,500. The $1,500 difference is hidden in the selling price of the vehicle you are buying. We'll alert you to this.
What’s the Kelly Blue Book and does it really show what my vehicle is worth?
The Blue Book is a reported guide to retail pricing. It does not show actual trade in values. A better guide to your car’s actual market value, is the “black book” that dealers almost never let you see. When you use our buying service we’ll show you all wholesale prices.
What if I still owe money on my present vehicle? We'll help you with this problem. Many dealers take advantage of consumers with trade ins this way. Just let us know the all information on your lease or your loan and we’ll help you find out exactly what you owe and factor that into the transaction. A NOTE many folks have tastes in cars that exceeds their budget. When you hire us we won't let you get in over your head
Do you help with financing? Yes, we are experts in used car financing. We usually work with customers with good credit or excellent credit. If you’re credit is not so good, lousy or just plain bad we probably will not be able to help you. Today, other dealers will tell you there are options available for people with credit problems but these option come with a price.
Talk to us, let us run a credit report. Then let’s decide what’s best.
Can you help with an extended warranties? Yes. We are experts in extended vehicle warranties. We know all of the largest and respected warranty companies.
