As some say, it’s true that a brand new car isn’t one of the most sound investments one can make. Instead, it’s normally better to locate that perfect vehicle in the pre-owned vehicle department; ideally with a factory warranty still in tact.
General Motors is looking to do just that, and keep customers for life, with the launch of its new online used car buying experience: Factory Pre-Owned Collection. The site, factorypreownedcollection.com, will launch in February and will provide a national inventory of low-mileage former General Motors lease, daily rental and company-owned vehicles never before available to the public.
The vehicles will also all retain an extended, factory bumper-to-bumper warranty, and no more than 37,000 miles will be clocked on the odometer.
“We know that many of our customers who are shopping for a used car want to complete more of the process online, and that number is growing,” Barra said. “GM is already a leader in online new car shopping with our Shop-Click-Drive service, and we are expanding it with the Factory Pre-Owned Collection, making GM the first automaker to offer this choice to consumers.”
Consumer will be able to compare prices and see what others have paid through Kelley Blue Book and even get a CarFax Vehicle History Report. And the service sounds easier than ever, too.
Find the used Chevrolet, Buick GMC or Cadillac that tickles you most, reserve the vehicle through a participating GM dealer using Shop-Click-Drive and finalize the purchase at the dealer itself.
