It’s time to find your next car. To save money, you’ve decided to look for a used car, truck, or SUV and set your budget at no more than $15,000. Let the sales team at Applegate Chevrolet guide your search. We maintain a broad selection of used and certified pre-owned vehicles that fit the needs of your family and your budget.
The used car inventory at Applegate Chevrolet includes leading models from across the Chevrolet lineup. We also offer cars from all the major brands, including Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Ford, and others. Our inventory is continuously changing as we find additional quality vehicles for drivers in Flint, Grand Blanc, Burton, Swartz Creek, Flushing, and other areas in southeast Michigan.
Choosing a used rather than new car carries with it several benefits. The first is obvious: It saves money. Used cars sell for hundreds and even thousands of dollars less than if you were to purchase the same vehicle as a new model.
But you’ll save on more than just the purchase price. In general, it costs less to secure insurance on an older used vehicle, and you might even be able to lower some of the required coverages. Used cars also depreciate slower than new cars, which means they might retain more of their value over the period of your ownership. In some instances, used cars can even increase in value. Registration fees and property taxes will also be lower.
As you begin your search, you might not have a specific used car in mind, much less one that sells for less than $15,000. That’s where our experienced sales staff comes into play. Our team will work with you to understand what you’re looking for in your next vehicle and provide you with a variety of options until you’re satisfied.
The first question is usually the easiest because it’s so broad: What kind of vehicle will work for you? Are you looking for a sedan, a truck, or an SUV? Do you need a full-sized SUV or one that’s more compact, such as those in the crossover category? Will you be using your vehicle for around-the-town travel, such as work and family obligations, or for adventures that require more space and durability? How many people need to fit in your vehicle?
These are questions only you can answer. The best used car is the one that meets your family’s needs at a price that makes sense. As a full-service dealership serving Flint, Michigan, and surrounding areas, the team at Applegate Chevrolet can help you meet your car-buying goals.
You might want to consider one of our certified pre-owned vehicles. The Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned Program covers used Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC vehicles under six years old and with fewer than 75,000 miles. These vehicles undergo an extensive 172-point vehicle inspection and reconditioning process. Our service team looks at every major system in the car, including the engine and transmission, the air conditioning and heat, the undercarriage, and even the state of the floor mats.
Because of this thorough inspection, every certified pre-owned Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC sells with two warranties. The first is a six-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, which includes benefits such as roadside assistance, courtesy transportation, a $0 deductible, and transferability to subsequent owners.
You will also come away with a 12-month, 12,000-mile limited extended bumper-to-bumper warranty. Keep in mind that this warranty does not cover standard daily wear and tear and might have other exclusions. Check our inventory regularly to find a car in your perfect price range. Used cars from other dealers also go through a thorough inspection by our experienced service center team.
At Applegate Chevrolet, we’re committed to building long-term relationships. One element of that is our service center, which is composed of highly trained technicians. If you purchase a Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC vehicle, you can be sure our team understands the latest technology, no matter the model or its specific trim. The members of our service team are all-around excellent mechanics who can help fix or maintain vehicles from any manufacturer.
Applegate Chevrolet regularly offers a range of service specials, so keep an eye on our service center page. No matter who manufactured your car, our goal is to help you keep it on the road as long as possible, to get the most out of your sizable investment. We make it easy to get on our service calendar. You can do this by setting up your appointment online.
We realize one of the big questions you might have in shopping for a used vehicle concerns your existing car. Valuing a trade-in involves many variables. Our team will evaluate your trade-in thoroughly and make a fair offer as part of our transparent buying process.
You can even get started with the process online, based on Kelley Blue Book values. Our staff will verify and finalize the offer with you at the dealership.
