When you think about the car-buying process, what immediately comes to mind? Do you envision an entire day spent at a dealership where you haggle over prices only to leave empty-handed because you know you’re not getting the best deal or the most for your trade-in? What if we told you that buying a vehicle doesn’t have to be like this? As your Atlanta pre-owned Chevy dealer, we’re here to change your car-buying experience.

Our unmatched selection of pre-owned Chevys has something to offer everyone, whether you’re looking for a reliable sedan like the Chevy Malibu, a compact workhorse like the Colorado, or the best-selling Silverado. We’ve got it all.
But what makes us the right used Chevy dealership for you? We’re not just here to sell you a vehicle. We’re here to help you navigate every step of owning a vehicle from routine maintenance to more complicated repairs.

There are many benefits to shopping for a pre-owned Chevy. For starters, shopping off our used lot is a great way to save money and get a better value car because, let’s face it, your money goes a lot further on the used lot. For example, your budget for a new truck might limit you to shopping for a base model Silverado. However, the same budget on our used lot can get you behind the wheel of a more luxurious Silverado that’s loaded with features.
Another great benefit to buying a used vehicle is minimizing depreciation, which is a vehicle’s loss in value over time. Every vehicle depreciates, but new vehicles depreciate faster over the first few years they’re on the road. By shopping for a used model, you’re avoiding this early plunge in value and, as a result, will get more value for your money than if you purchased the same vehicle brand new.
Aside from avoiding the pitfalls of rapid depreciation, you’ll also discover that buying a used car saves you money over time. Your insurance rates are set based on the vehicle you drive and how much it will cost the agency to replace the vehicle should it be totaled in a collision. Used cars are cheaper to replace than newer models, which means you’ll pay lower insurance rates.
The automotive industry is filled with cutting-edge technology and innovation that’s made vehicles run longer than ever before. Cars, trucks, and SUVs can easily log hundreds of thousands of miles and still have plenty of life left in them when they arrive on the used lot. This means that you have even more options when shopping for the perfect used vehicle for your needs.
To give you more confidence in those choices, the used car market offers vehicle history reports that can help you narrow down your options. Industry leaders like CarFax and AutoCheck offer extensive vehicle history reports and guarantees that put everything you need to know about the vehicle in your hand. The reports share everything from the vehicle’s number of owners to its accident history as well as any major repairs or title issues. A report like this goes a long way to reduce the risk of purchasing a used vehicle.
One of the most common questions that we’re asked is why certified pre-owned models are priced slightly higher than used models. As your authority on all things Chevy-related, answering this question is easy and is based on the strict requirements that Chevy sets for a model to become certified. The increase in price reflects the work that Chevy puts into the vehicle to give you added peace of mind and confidence in your purchase. What are Chevy’s CPO requirements and the associated benefits?
Chevy’s CPO vehicles are held to a higher standard that separates them from other used models. For a vehicle to qualify for the CPO badge, it must be less than six model years old, have a clean title, pass a vehicle history report, and have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer. If it meets these requirements, it undergoes a 172-point inspection where certified technicians thoroughly go over the vehicle and recondition it before it’s added to our CPO inventory along with its comprehensive vehicle history report.
Chevy’s CPO inventory isn’t only hand-picked, inspected, and vetted, but it’s also backed by the manufacturer’s warranty. When you drive off the lot in a CPO Chevy, you’ll have all the confidence you need in your purchase thanks to two of the best comprehensive warranties in the industry. Every CPO Chevy comes with a 6-year or 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and a 12-month or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.
Along with your purchase, you’ll receive two complimentary maintenance visits with the CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program, roadside assistance, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. Another great perk of buying a CPO Chevy is our satisfaction guarantee. We understand that sometimes you get home with a vehicle only to realize that you don’t truly love it or that it doesn’t meet your needs. If this is the case, bring your CPO Chevy back to the dealership within three days or 150 miles, and we’ll exchange it for a Chevy, GMC, or Buick that better suits you! The best part about this CPO program is that the benefits are the same for GMC and Buick models as well.
Our customer base is diverse, and that’s why we do everything possible to give you plenty of options when you’re shopping for a pre-owned vehicle. A Silverado that fits your budget and performance needs might not work for someone else, and that’s exactly how it should be. Everyone is different and, because of that, you’ll find our inventory is constantly evolving to meet the demands and unique needs of our customers.
You can shop our inventory at the dealership or browse our virtual showroom, where you can easily tailor your search based on your needs. We’ve simplified the process by categorizing our inventory into sections like pre-owned vehicles, specials, lifted trucks and SUVs, vehicles under $10,000, and pre-owned work trucks. But that’s not all we’ve done! We’ve taken our inventory nationwide, and that means you can search across the country for the perfect pre-owned model for your needs. Over 8,000 models from every major automaker are literally at your fingertips!
