What to Consider When Shopping Used
At Richard Lucas Chevrolet, you’ll notice that our inventory of used vehicles is quite impressive. With so many makes and models to choose from, choosing the right vehicle might seem difficult. After all, with so much variety, how do you choose just one? There are a lot of factors to consider when purchasing a new car. From basic factors like fuel economy and size to more personal wants like infotainment and comfort features, there is a lot that can come in a vehicle.
First off, when it comes to the selection process, our staff will help you along every single step of the way. From the moment you step on our lot until you drive home in your new purchase, and even after when your vehicle needs maintenance, we will be there for you. We’ll help you pick out a vehicle that perfectly suits your needs. After all, we’re drivers too and know the best things to look for.
A mistake some people make when they buy a used vehicle is they assume that cost only extends to the sticker price and whether or not the car has effective fuel efficiency. While these are both factors that you should pay attention to, vehicle ownership also carries with it more costs than you might think about at first. While being concerned about how much you spend at the pump is an important factor to consider, this barely touches the iceberg in terms of what the cost of vehicle ownership is.
Two important items to keep in mind when considering cost are repairs and insurance premiums.
While routine maintenance is a part of owning any vehicle, life tends to be unpredictable, which is why keeping a fair amount of money aside for when the unexpected occurs is always advisable. A CARFAX history report will inform you if the vehicle you’re looking at has had any problems in the past that you need to keep an eye on, and our service team is here to help you if your vehicle does end up needing repairs.
important to remember that certain vehicles are more expensive to insure than others. A vehicle’s age, type, and what it’s used for are all factors that come into play. For instance, if the vehicle you’re purchasing is going to be used in a work capacity, your premiums will increase. Not to worry, the team at Richard Lucas Chevrolet will keep all of these factors in mind when you’re shopping with us, so we can help you stay within your budget while still getting an excellent vehicle.

Quality Used Cars From Many Major Brands
Here at Richard Lucas Chevrolet, we offer an unbeatable inventory of high-quality used cars, trucks, and SUVs. From powerful pickup trucks to comfortable and versatile SUVs, we have a used vehicle for every budget and lifestyle. Either pay us a visit or take a quick look at our online inventory, and you are sure to turn up several options that will fit your needs.

Once we know what you need, we can easily provide you with some promising leads to follow and can demonstrate the relevant features of the various vehicles
on our lot.
Many of our most popular used models are manufactured by Chevy. This is no surprise as Chevy is well known for producing reliable and affordable vehicles with above-average performance. Our two best-sellers are the Chevy Silverado full-size pickup truck and the Chevy Equinox compact SUV. No matter what your needs are, it is hard to go wrong with one of these two models. The Chevy Silverado is a rugged truck that comes in a wide variety of different configurations that allow it to be everything from a barebones work truck to a luxurious tow vehicle. The Chevy Equinox, on the other hand, is a comfortable and efficient five-seat SUV that makes it a perfect choice for use as a commuter or as a family vehicle.
RICHARD LUCAS CHEVROLET
If you want something that was designed to handle winter weather with ease, then consider looking at one of our Subaru models. These reliable Japanese vehicles all come standard with a highly capable all-wheel drive system that will carry you safely through snow and ice. From the compact Subaru Impreza sedan up to the midsize Subaru Ascent SUV, there is no better choice for skiers, snowboarders, and others who like to venture out into the cold. However, we would suggest the Subaru Forester. This compact SUV is roughly the size of the Chevy Equinox but offers a bit more power, standard all-wheel drive, and the valuable X Mode to help you get moving no matter how bad the conditions are outside.
The final brand that we would recommend checking out is Ford. While Chevy and Ford have a long-running rivalry, that is because both manufacturers build excellent vehicles. And while we tend to side with Chevy, there is no denying that a used Ford makes for a great option. However, the selection of used cars, trucks, and SUVs that you will find here at Richard Lucas Chevrolet includes far more than just Chevy, Subaru, and Ford. Although our exact inventory changes frequently, you can usually discover models from a dozen or more manufacturers out on our lot. So pay us a visit and find out which of our many quality used cars is right for you.
Certified Pre-Owned Chevy Vehicles
Every used car, truck, and SUV here at Richard Lucas Chevrolet must meet our high standards and is in excellent mechanical condition. However, if you are looking for a truly exceptional used vehicle, then check out our selection of Certified Pre-Owned Chevy models. Everything wearing a CPO tag has passed the rigorous 172-point inspection mandated by Chevy and is completely free of any possible mechanical issues. Further, a CPO vehicle comes standard with two separate factory warranties, including both a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 6-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. With that sort of coverage, you can rest easy knowing
that you have made a safe investment.
Indeed, buying a CPO model brings almost all of the benefits of buying a brand-new car at the price of a used car. It even includes additional perks such as two years worth of free scheduled maintenance and a three-month free trial of OnStar and SiriusXM Satellite radio on vehicles that are compatible with those services. And to top it off, if you are not completely satisfied with your CPO model, you have three days or 150 miles to exchange it for something else, no questions asked. So if you want to save some money but are wary about buying a used car, a CPO vehicle is the perfect choice.

No matter your financial situation or budget, we can make sure that you get the best deal available for financing your new or used car, truck, or SUV. The financing that they need.

You Can Trade in Your Current Car
At Richard Lucas Chevrolet, we believe in helping our customers get what they want. We understand that vehicle ownership is one of the best ways to achieve the quality of life you and your family deserve. An aspect that often prevents many people from attempting to get a new vehicle is a lack of credit or history that’s less than favorable.
There’s a way around this issue that many people fear, and it starts with trading in your car for use as equity or a down payment on a new one. It’s a relatively simple process. Consulting a guide such as KBB (Kelly Blue Book) will give you an idea of what your current vehicle is worth. While all new cars depreciate in value once they’re driven off the lot, some have a slower
depreciation rate than others, which makes them more valuable when used. Once you’ve determined the value, you can get somewhat of a ballpark figure of the value you’ll receive. Be mindful of your vehicle’s history, such as accidents, major repairs, and any significant events that it’s been involved with. A CARFAX report is usually the best way to see a detailed history of your vehicle, just in case you bought it from a third-party dealership or independent seller.
Trading in your vehicle works the same way a down payment does. When you find the vehicle you want to upgrade to, your trade-in deducts from the sale price and allows you to get a head start in paying it off in full. This can either be done with a monthly payment plan or simply paying off the remaining balance outright. If you’re concerned about a monthly payment possibly being too high, our financing department will work with you to ensure your rate is agreeable to your current financial circumstances.
Maintenance and Parts for Your Used Car
When you purchase a used vehicle at Richard Lucas Chevrolet, you do much more than acquire transportation. There’s much more to vehicle ownership than traveling from point A to point B. Owning a vehicle is like making a prominent investment that will benefit you and your family for many years. To recoup a sizable return, there are some basic needs that you need to attend to. Just like that periodic check you need to have to ensure the longevity of your health, your vehicle needs routine service to keep it running like a well-oiled machine.
Speaking of which, the service department at Richard Lucas Chevrolet can provide your vehicle with the necessary maintenance to keep it on the road, providing you with peace of mind. The routine oil change is the most fundamental part of tending to your vehicle's efficiency. Using the right oil is a major preventive measure to make sure your engine goes the extra mile for you. Keeping your oil changed regularly ensures that the deposits accumulated over time are removed and that the many moving parts stay lubricated and operate smoothly.
Our dedication to your vehicle's service doesn't end there, nor should it. This is why we also offer inspections, brake, and tire servicing and can make sure that your transmission is working properly. Richard Lucas Chevrolet also takes immense pride in our parts department. Did you know that the installation of after-market parts
RICHARD LUCAS CHEVROLET
purchased from a third party can lower your automobile's resale value? We do. This is why we believe in only using OEM parts straight from the manufacturer. These have been formulated for exclusive use in your vehicle. Our staff are highly trained and know the ins and outs of your purchase, and with the right care and parts, they’ll help you keep your vehicle on the road for many years.
