Why You Should Buy Used from a Dealership in Mobile, AL

Congratulations on your decision to buy a used car. We’re thrilled that you’re considering us, and can’t wait to help you on your journey in any way that we can. One of your initial decisions when buying a used car should be whether you’re going to buy from a dealership or a private seller. And while you might think buying from a private seller can afford you more opportunities, we’re here to tell you to consider buying a used model from your friends here at Lexus of Mobile. We have a large selection of used models available and can’t wait to help you find the right one to fit your lifestyle. Read on to discover why you should buy your next used car from a dealership.

Warranties and Promotions

Getting a better offer from a private seller might happen sometimes, but even if the price is better, it doesn’t mean that the quality of the vehicle will be any better. In fact, there is almost no recourse to take if you are sold a vehicle with something wrong by a private seller. When you buy a used model from us, you don’t have to worry about that. We thoroughly inspect all of our used models, and our highest caliber L/Certified models come with a generous warranty and guarantee. Plus, when you buy used from us, we can offer you promotions to help you save on the model you want and you can have the peace of mind knowing that you bought from a reputable dealership.

Earned Reputation

Speaking of reputable dealerships, did you know that we have a 4.6-star rating on Google reviews? This is due to our wonderful customers being willing to share their experience online, and we couldn’t do what we do without them. We’re committed to providing an excellent experience for our customers every time they walk through our doors. Because we have our reputation on the line, we’re more likely to take care of our customers than a random private seller who doesn’t have to worry about that.

Financing Options

Although a private seller might be flexible about what type of payment they’ll accept, odds are they won’t let you finance your purchase. They’ll expect all of the money upfront, and whether that’s a check, cash or some other form of payment, you won’t be able to get out of paying it all at once. At Lexus of Mobile, we also accept total upfront payments, but we also allow you to finance your used car purchase. There are many different financing options, and while that looks different for everyone, our friendly finance team is here to help you find the one that works best for you.

When it comes to buying a used car, our dealership can help.
