The Smart Shopper’s Guide to Buying Used Chevrolet Vehicles in San Diego

Chevrolet offers one of the widest selections of vehicles in the entire industry, making it a great brand for one-stop shopping. You can choose from electrified models like the Bolt and Volt, iconic sports cars like the Camaro or Corvette, and SUVs and trucks led by the Tahoe, Equinox, Silverado, and Canyon. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You’ve really got to visit our showroom, online or in person, to see all the Chevrolet models we have in stock.

Why Buy a Used Chevrolet?

As you might guess, the key advantages of a used vehicle over a new one have to do with money. The starting point is that pre-owned cars and trucks are generally priced lower than their brand-new counterparts, and a big part of that has to do with depreciation. When you buy a used vehicle, it’s the first owner who takes the biggest hit because new vehicles tend to lose the most value in their first year on the road. Then, since a pre-owned vehicle costs less to buy, it’s usually less to insure, too.

The bonus with all these savings is that you’re actually getting more bang for your buck: You enjoy the same great features that a new-car owner is paying for, but it costs you less money to get them.

And even though you have to take into account a pre-owned vehicle’s past life, that’s pretty easy to do nowadays since used-vehicle history reports are simple to come by. You can also consider our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles that deliver added peace of mind thanks to our comprehensive inspection process and warranty coverage.

Purchasing a Used Chevrolet

With so many choices, finding just the right pre-owned Chevrolet to meet your demands may require a bit of homework. Be sure to think about things like how many people will be riding in the vehicle with you, whether you’ll be using it to commute, and if you need the added strength of an SUV or truck. Here’s a quick rundown of recent models to help:

  • For an efficient small car, check out the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic hatchbacks along with the Sonic sedan.
  • The Chevrolet Volt is a great way to explore EV driving, since it’s a plug-in hybrid that runs on gas or electricity. To give up on gas altogether, the Bolt is backed by an all-electric driving range of nearly 259 miles.
  • The Camaro and Corvette, as mentioned, are among the sportiest Chevy ever, and both offer the thrill of open-air driving.
  • The brand’s wide range of expressive crossover-style SUVs is led by the Blazer and Trailblazer, each with first-class infotainment and safety technology.
  • For adventure-friendly families that need the strength of body-on-frame construction, the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban set the pace.
  • The brand’s trucks are plenty strong as well, with the legendary Silverado and mid-sized Colorado showing off high-end luxuries and high-capability off-road models.

A Brief History of Chevrolet

The Chevrolet Motor Car Company was launched in 1911 by a pair of automotive legends: Louis Chevrolet, also a successful race car driver, and William C. Durant, who had founded — and was then ousted from — General Motors. Interestingly, Durant’s success with Chevrolet gave him the capital he needed to regain control of GM, and he brought the Chevy brand with him when he returned in 1916.

The first car from Chevrolet was introduced in 1913 as the Series C Classic Six, complete with a Bowtie badge, and a little more than 20 years later, Chevy debuted what’s usually considered the world’s first SUV, the Suburban Carryall. Other classics quickly followed, and the brand’s award-winning lineup now has something for just about everyone, from the city-sized Spark hatchback to the mid-engined Corvette supercar.
