The Reliability of Used Cars

When a used model comes into our dealership, the first step is to inspect the exterior and interior components to make sure everything looks crisp and refined. Then a member of our service team will perform an inspection of the engine and other major components to ensure nothing needs to be repaired. Routine maintenances like tire replacements and engine oil changes may also be done so the car runs efficiently and smoothly when you get behind the wheel.

Our technicians are highly trained to detect any potential issues within a vehicle and perform the necessary repairs and services, so you can feel confident selecting a pre-owned model. Learn more about the benefits of buying a used car!

What's Certified Pre-Owned?

For even more peace of mind, consider one of our certified pre-owned models. In order to earn this title, used vehicles must pass a rigorous inspection. For example, the Volvo Certified Pre-Owned program inspects more than 170 components to guarantee ever single one's in peak condition. The result is a ride with added reliability and assurance.

Additionally, these vehicles come with added peace of mind from different perks like travel protection and 24-hour roadside assistance. So, if you'd like to learn more about the exclusive certified program, reach out to a member of our team today. 

Which Used Cars are the Most Reliable?

There are many cars on the market to provide you with the reliability you need, but the following are some that may appeal the most to you.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover has made a name crafting luxury SUVs that can take on extreme conditions from heavy rains to rocky terrains. So, if you're searching for a vehicle with extreme dependability, the Discovery Sport is a desirable option. Armed with a stance over eight inches off the ground combined with 4-wheel drive system, this vehicle will provide you with stability through unfavorable conditions no matter what model year it is.

Porsche Cayenne

Porsche is another well-known brand, but not for off-road abilities but rather sports car performance, even behind the wheel of an SUV. The Cayenne is no different, with bold engine options at every model year and advanced safety systems like rain sensing wipers which provide you with a clear view even through heavy rains.
