Used Cars, Trucks, and SUVs for Sale

Used cars are shown in a dealerships showroom.

Everyone loves a great mystery. That’s why mystery shows remain so popular on television, and your local library has shelves stacked with books by popular mystery authors like Nelson DeMille, Jo Nesbo, Gillian Flynn, and John Grisham. However, when it comes to buying a used car, truck, or SUV, this is not necessarily the case. You want to know that when you close on the deal, you will drive off in a vehicle that is safe, dependable, reliable, and of great quality. You could try typing, “find me used cars for sale near me” into your search engine, but will the results tell you the entire story? Instead, you will get page after page of articles and offers, some helpful, others less so. And when you look, you’ll see that many of the dealers “near me” turn out to be in other states! At DePaula Ford, we take the mystery out of your search for used cars near you. As a Ford certified pre-owned dealer, we will provide you with the used car, truck, or SUV that you can depend on. 

Used vs. Certified Pre-owned

We have all heard the phrase “used cars.” What is the first thing that comes to mind? Probably a big lot with flags and bunting lit up brighter than a Christmas tree. Rows and rows of different makes and models, all with a big sign over the windshield, listing a price. And watching over it all is some fast-talking guy with a top hat who looks like he should be the ringmaster at a circus. The cars look nice, but a little voice inside your head is telling you to run in the other direction as fast as you can.

This is not the case with a certified pre-owned dealership like DePaula Ford. As the Number One Volume Dealership in the Capital Region, we take the mystery, drama, and nonsense out of buying a used car, truck, or SUV. In order to qualify for Ford-certified, a pre-owned Ford vehicle must be less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on its odometer. Ford-certified means that every pre-owned vehicle that meets this qualification has undergone a rigorous 172-point inspection. Our technicians have thoroughly reviewed the CARFAX Vehicle History Report to make sure that all scheduled maintenance has been performed. We will also take the vehicle on a comprehensive road test to see if anything needs to be repaired before we sell the used car, truck, or SUV to you. We will also do a full underhood, underbody, and diagnostic systems test. Your safety and satisfaction are of paramount importance to us at DePaula Ford. Finally, there will be a full inspection of the exterior and interior features. The certified pre-owned vehicle you buy will be just as described. 

But that is not all. As a Ford certified pre-owned dealership, we will stand behind the car. We provide comprehensive limited warranty coverage for 12 months/12,000 miles for over 1,000 components, including engine and transmission. In addition, there is Powertrain Limited warranty Coverage for 7 years/100,000 miles for engine and transmission. Finally, we offer complimentary 24-hour Roadside Assistance. This includes towing assistance, rental car reimbursement, and travel and destination expense reimbursement, and aid. If you run out of gas, this will provide fuel delivery. If you get a flat tire, this will provide a change. If your car battery fails, this will provide a jumpstart. 

Used vehicles don’t come with certified pre-owned benefits. Find out the difference for yourself at DePaula Ford.

Choosing the right vehicle

Whether you want a sedan, coupe, SUV, crossover, or truck, you need to find out your wants and needs in a vehicle. You want a vehicle that is dependable, reliable, and capable of performing for you in an efficient and effective way.

Need a car with exceptional fuel efficiency that can get you from your house to your job in Rensselaer? Check out a sporty pre-owned Ford Fusion. Need a truck that can haul even your heaviest loads?

With over 150 vehicles available, DePaula Ford will have the pre-owned car, truck, or SUV for you.

While the largest part of our inventory of pre-owned vehicles are Fords, we also offer cars, trucks, and SUVs from other manufacturers, including Dodge, Chevrolet, Ram, Honda, Jeep, Mazda, Subaru, and Volkswagen. We even have cars and SUVs from luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, Cadillac, and Lincoln. Each pre-owned vehicle that we sell has undergone a rigorous inspection, giving you the confidence that your DePaula Ford pre-owned vehicle is safe, reliable, dependable, and of great quality.

No Pricing Gimmicks

While we don’t have the ringmaster with his funny hat, pretty lights, and colorful flags, what we do have is a reputation for honest dealing and upfront pricing. This means that the entire process is transparent, with reliance on the Kelley Blue Book Price Advisor Report for the pre-owned vehicle. Sure, the ringmaster might be charming and funny, but you know you have to check your pockets when you leave his used car lot just to make sure your wallet is still there. And you’ll be nervous that you didn’t get a good price as you drive off in the used car he just sold you. With DePaula Ford, you will not be left wondering if you got a good deal or not. With transparent pricing, you will always get the fair purchase price for the pre-owned vehicle you are buying.
