Used Buick SUVs in Rhode Island
An increasing number of drivers are opting for sport utility vehicles, and we can’t blame them. They’re spacious and well-appointed, and many have capabilities that leave your average sedan in the dust (or the snow, for that matter). That said, brand-new SUVs can be quite expensive due to their increasingly luxurious accommodations. Well, we’re happy to tell you that there’s a massive selection of used models out there that are waiting for wise buyers who want to save thousands. Oftentimes, these pre-owned vehicles are just as well-equipped – or even more so – than the brand-new models on the lot.
Buick is General Motors’ Mama Bear, slotting between your no-nonsense Chevrolet and your luxury Cadillac. While brand-new Buick SUVs can be pretty expensive, you’ll find their sticker prices attractive when they return to the lot as secondhand offerings. Consider Buick’s flagship Enclave, for example. The 2020 Premium version has a starting MSRP of $48,400, but the savings really begin to show if you shop for the same model and trim from 2016: it’s possible to find one priced around $30,000 with something in the neighborhood of 30,000 miles on the odometer.
Buyers with their eye on more bells and whistles can opt for the Enclave Avenir, but the 2020 version of that luxury trim starts at $53,800. In contrast, an Enclave Avenir from 2018 can be found around $40,000 with low miles. As you can see, a few years’ difference results in a considerable price drop, and since the used models mentioned above are still fairly new, their standard equipment should be similar to what you’d find with the latest versions.
Buick Certified Pre-Owned
For the utmost confidence in your used car purchase, consider Buick’s Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program. With a Buick CPO vehicle, you’ll get certain benefits that you wouldn’t get with your run-of-the-mill used vehicle, especially if you were to take the risk of buying from a third-party seller. Every CPO Buick is thoroughly inspected and reconditioned by factory-trained service technicians to make it look and perform like brand-new again. Plus, in order to be considered for CPO, each Buick must be no older than six model years, have a maximum odometer reading under 75,000 miles, and pass a 172-point inspection.
Once a used Buick SUV is officially registered as CPO, it will be provided with two factory-backed limited warranties: a 6-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. On top of that, each CPO Buick gets two free maintenance visits, a free CARFAX Vehicle History Report, and three-month trials for OnStar services and SiriusXM radio. And should you find yourself unhappy with your CPO Buick for any reason, you can exchange it within the first three days or 150,000 miles (whichever comes first) for a Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC that works better for you.
