Best way to find used


Recommended Posts

I am looking to get a used ltz or slt. I haven't really picked one or the other yet it's all about the deal I get.

 

I am currently using cars.com and for searching for a specific model trim and color. So far it's the best

 

 

Is there any other good search options out there? Maybe like a gm used master site for used. I don't care how far it is away. Of the price is right I'm hopping on a plane.

I will have to try the dealer. I am currently keeping an eye open for what I want. I might find some better priced when the 2016 models come out especially because they changed them a bit. I might be one of the few happy people that they changed the looks so soon.

I dunno about tasking the dealer with finding something at auction. If I were buying used, I'd want to see the vehicle I'd be buying right in front of me so I could take it out for a test drive and see if it's a vibrator, among the other known issues. I think your chances of getting a problem vehicle are a lot higher at auction than they would be buying new. Ask yourself why the vehicle is at auction. I think there's a high probability that it's one that had an intractible problem where the owner just threw up their hands and traded it. Trading dealer knew it had issues and wanted it off his hands too.

 

I guess it's in your POV too. If you want "cheap", then you're going to assume some risks. If you want "no problems" (more or less) then a locally-traded CPO from the dealer's lot would be a better choice.

True, in my case there was still no deal until I drove it. I told them what I was looking for, and then they went out and found it. Once I drove it and checked it out, I signed the deal. The vehicle turned out great, got over 200,000 miles out of it with no major issues!

 

Dealers "trade" vehicles all the time. If you have the same vehicles on the lot every week, people are going to think you aren't selling much.

You can always try posting a "wanted" ad, looking for a truck going back at the end of a two year lease. I've purchase a car like this before, often the seller will let it go for the buy out price, or close to it to avoid extra reconditioning or mileage fees.
