It’s the variety that’s available in the used car market that can make choosing a pre-owned automobile a challenging task. By contacting our Buick dealership serving White Lake Township, MI, you can pick up some tips that will help you sort through the available models and choose the previously owned vehicle that’s a perfect fit given your preferences and driving habits.

Know Your Options

In general, there are two broad-based categories of used cars, standard and Certified Pre-Owned. All pre-owned cars provide some meaningful benefits, such as allowing you to sidestep the rapid depreciation new vehicles experience. While that’s true, the Certified Pre-Owned vehicles on our lot provide even more benefits that standard used cars don’t, such as:

  • Six-year/100,000-mile limited warranty
  • 24/7 roadside assistance
  • Courtesy transportation for covered repairs
  • Certified Pre-Owned scheduled maintenance program

Get Pre-Qualified

One of the smartest things you can do to find the automobile that’s best for you is to apply for financing through our Buick finance center before you start shopping for a pre-owned vehicle. By getting pre-qualified, you’ll be able to narrow down your search because you’ll know how much you can spend on your upcoming purchase.

Select a Body Style

You can narrow your search even more by choosing the body style you want to get. Think about the ways you’ll use your vehicle most often and any lifestyle changes you anticipate happening in the near future. Giving those things some thought will make it easy to choose the body style that will get you through the next couple of years at least.

Go for a Test Drive

Once you select a body style, you can sort through the used cars at our location using it as your search criteria. From there, you can choose the models you’re interested in. After you whittle your list down, you can contact or visit LaFontaine Buick GMC Highland to join us for a test drive in the automobiles you’re interested in.

Of all the steps involved with finding your perfect pre-owned car, going for a test drive is arguably the most important. With that in mind, head in our direction to test-drive a pre-owned vehicle today.
