Used Car Shopping FAQs

Is it a good idea to buy a used car from a dealership?

Buying a used car from a dealership is a more convenient way to get a new ride. A private seller may have limited availability to meet up with you, but our Lafayette and Broussard used car dealers are open all day, so you can stop by when it fits your schedule. There’s also the added peace of mind of working with a reputable business that specializes in car sales.


What questions should I ask when buying a used car?

When you’re shopping for a used car, there are a few key topics you should ask about. You’ll want to learn more about the condition, features and performance before you make a choice. We recommend taking a test-drive before you make a purchase.


Is it worth buying a used car?

It’s worth buying a used vehicle if you want to enjoy sophisticated styling, elevated performance and modern interior features without going outside your budget. You can finance a like-new Chevy or pre-owned Toyota that you love without paying a new car price.


Which used car should I buy?

The best used car for you depends on your ideal price range, model and preferences. Those with long commutes may be interested in a pre-owned Honda or Kia sedan, while drivers looking for all-wheel drive might want to buy a used Ford truck or Jeep SUV. We have hundreds of vehicles across every brand, so you’re sure to find your perfect match.
