used car Greensboro

If you are looking for a used car Greensboro company you can trust, come to Peters Auto Mall. Not only do we have experienced car sales reps, but we’ll never put you in a high-pressure situation. In fact, we want you to be completely confident that the used car you are buying is perfect for you. Whether you buy from us or not, use this “cheat sheet” of five questions to ask about any used car.

Who inspected the car (and when)?

Here in North Carolina, cars must undergo an annual inspection. The North Carolina DMV has a full run-down of inspection requirements on their website. However, Peters Auto Mall performs a full 125-point inspection on every vehicle. So, in addition to ensuring that every car in our inventory is legal, we also make sure it is safe.

Also, we want to ensure that your car is reliable. We don’t want you to worry that your car will break down the second you drive it off the lot. Because we perform such a thorough inspection, we identify and repair any issues before the car is available for sale. Our team wants you to keep the car for a long time. In short, we stand behind our used cars. In our opinion, any used car Greensboro car lot should do the same. A dealership that doesn’t is not a place where you want to do business.

What will my monthly payments be?

When you are shopping for a car, it is easy to see only the sticker price. Our financing department can get your loan approval instantly! However, just because you receive approval for a certain amount does not mean that you have to spend it. Always ask what the monthly price will be. We want you to be comfortable with your monthly payments, even if it means you buy a less expensive car. Making a large sale isn’t as important to us as making you happy.

Luckily, at our Greensboro lot, you can find pre-owned cars to fit every budget. Whether it is a Porsche or Volvo, we can help. Your business is important to us no matter how much you spend. At our lot, we care about customer satisfaction with every sale.

Can I test drive the car?

If a seller doesn’t allow you to test drive a car you are thinking about buying, be very cautious. This is a sign that they might have something to hide. Here at Peters Auto Mall, we welcome test drivers! In fact, you don’t even need an appointment. Our location at 5101 W Market St. is perfect for all Greensboro area customers interested in browsing. You can test any car on our lot as long as you have a valid driver’s license.

How much will a used car Greensboro dealer give me for my car?

When you trade in a car, you need less cash to put toward a down payment. Trade-ins make a lot of sense for most buyers! However, not all dealerships will give you a fair value for your trade-in. If you sell your car to Peters Auto Mall, we want you to feel confident with the price you receive.

The value of your car depends on a number of factors including age, condition, and vehicle history. We’ve sold over 20,000 vehicles, which means, frankly, we know a thing or two about cars. Therefore, we are confident that we can give you the best deal. Our appraisers undergo special training to ensure that every offer is honest.

In fact, we are so confident in our offers that we give you a full week to think about it. We want you to be able to shop around to make sure that you are getting the best deal. Learn more about our trade-in process here.

What is the car’s history?

Lastly, before you buy, make sure you learn as much as you can about a vehicle’s history. The number of miles on the speedometer only tells part of the story. Was the car ever in any accidents? How many people have owned it? Does it have any major repairs on its record? At Peters Auto Mall, we are completely transparent with every vehicle’s history. Again, your comfort with the sale is our top priority.
