Kentucky Used Car Dealership

A new car is tempting for anyone who is ready to upgrade from their old vehicle. New vehicles come with the latest technologies, and it is often easier to get financing, but new cars also come with a new car price, which might not be for you. Sure, there are plenty of other reasons why buying a used car makes better sense; you get more for your money when buying a used car, you have a variety of choices, and vehicle history reports give you peace of mind when purchasing a used car. Whatever your reason for buying a used car, you can't go wrong stopping by Dan Cummins Chevrolet Buick; your local Kentucky used car dealership.

We Work Hard for You

Many large car dealerships are only motivated to move stock as quickly as possible, but that is not how we work. We take the time to get to know you and your needs; we understand the importance of finding a vehicle that works for you in terms of features and price. Even if it takes multiple visits, it is worth the effort to see an outcome in which the customer is delighted with the choice.

Because of our roots in the community, we take the time to invest in the people. It is no secret that customer longevity is key to a successful dealership. This is why we make sure that all of your needs are met at a price that is fair for everyone involved. Not everybody is in an ideal financial situation, we get this, and we work with you to get the best possible financing.

Finding the right used car isn't always cut and dry, and it can be hard work. Imagine shopping at a dealership where the focus is on finding out your needs and the best way to reach that goal. For us, it's not about the money; it's about customer satisfaction and the way we feel when we see you drive off the lot in your dream car.

We Offer an Extensive Inventory

While there are examples of situations in which having too many choices is a bad thing, it certainly isn't a problem when you are in the market for a used vehicle. Americans are no strangers to the paradox of choice; we all realize that having more alternatives means the chances of achieving happiness increases exponentially. The bottom line is that you want a lot of choices when searching for your next vehicle.

Buying a car is a big deal; even if you are purchasing a used car, it is an investment that will last a long time. As such, you will want to ensure that you are getting just what you need for your needs. Even if you are buying a car, truck, or SUV based on style, having a good selection is a good thing. For the most part, people shop for a vehicle that is going to meet their specific needs. And if you think about it, your needs are unique, so you will need to find a unique vehicle that appeals to you.

Whether you need a full-size truck with towing capabilities for work, an SUV that can seat six, or a compact car that is fuel-efficient, you can bet we have just what you are looking for on our lot. If safety and good handling are essential to you, there is a vehicle in our inventory that meets those needs. Thanks to our expensive inventory, Dan Cummins is your one-stop-shop for the vehicle of your dreams.

Tips for Narrowing Down Your Choices

One of the first things you want to do when in the market for a used vehicle is to compose a list of your wants and needs. Once you have completed the list, compare the cars you like with the list and eliminate anything that doesn't meet all of your needs. Once you have a list of your wants and needs, create a list of vehicles that meet them. Narrow your list down even more by eliminating vehicles that are out of your price range.

Your next step should be to determine precisely how much you can spend on your used car. There are many financial options when you buy a vehicle, so determine how much you can afford for a monthly payment, or if you are paying for the vehicle outright, determine how much money you can spend. If you aren't sure about how much you can spend on a vehicle, sit down and work out a budget to help determine what you can and can't afford.

Before you head down to our dealership, it will help narrow your choices if you do your research. Maybe you have been loyal to one particular brand, but you might be surprised when researching another brand, and you will broaden your horizon. Discover which features are important to you and determine which models offer the features you desire.

Once you have narrowed your list of vehicles down, it's time for the fun part; the test drive. You can give us a call, chat with us online, or send us an email and schedule a test drive; try to schedule a few back-to-back, so you don't limit your options. Our sales staff are your greatest allies when searching for the right used car, and they will cater to your needs. It is recommended that you test drive at least three vehicles as this will make comparing the cars much more straightforward.

You might find the car that is perfect for you while shopping our inventory online. But the true test comes when you take it for a drive. You need to test drive the car the same way you would drive it in everyday situations. If you commute, drive the car at highway speeds and in stop-and-go traffic. If you are using your vehicle for recreational purposes, find a nearby hill to climb and drive it over a bumpy road if possible. Get in and out of the vehicle several times, and don't forget to sit in the back seat. If you will be transporting passengers, make sure the vehicle will seat them all comfortably.

If you will be transporting young children or a baby, bring the car seat along to test for a good fit and see how easy it is to install. While it is recommended to test out the sound system, turn it off for a while while you are driving to listen to the sound of the engine. It is also a good idea to take notes, so when you get back to the dealership, you have plenty of questions to ask. If the test drive doesn't sell you on that vehicle, then move on to the next one.
