Used Car Dealer – Albany, NY

Buying a used car is a great way to save money and help out the environment by keeping a car on the road longer, reducing the impact of its manufacture. Choosing the right used car, however, can be difficult, and it's very important that you pick the right place to buy your vehicle. While you might be tempted to go with a private seller to save some money, in the long-run, that decision can end up costing you a lot more. A reputable used car dealer gives you a much better selection, offers more peace of mind, and can help with financing.

Unfortunately, not all used car dealers are equal, and the reputation for dirty tricks that some dealerships might use has been, sadly, well earned. That's why you must be careful with choosing a dealership with a good reputation, with roots in the community, and that puts your needs first. You want to find a dealership with a large inventory of used vehicles, preferably one that offers certified pre-owned vehicles, so you have the option to choose one.

Here at DePaula Ford, we are the used car dealer for you. We have a tremendous inventory of used vehicles for you to choose from. This includes certified pre-owned models that give you the combination of the lower price of a used model and the peace of mind from a new one. Our service center and parts department will be here for you for years to come. They want to make sure you stay on the road, and your vehicle stays in the best condition possible. Visit us at DePaula Ford, and we will show you how enjoyable shopping for a used car can be.

Terrific Selection of Used Vehicles

One of the biggest reasons to choose a used car dealer over a private seller is the potential for much a greater selection you'll find. Here at DePaula Ford, we live up to that potential. We have a vast selection of more than 100 used vehicles we offer every day, with new models coming in all the time. We carefully inspect all the vehicles we have before putting them out for sale, so you know they are in excellent condition.

A used car dealer gives you peace of mind because we are required, by law, to provide you with everything we know about a vehicle. If we find any damage or mechanical issues while inspecting the car, we will tell you about it. A private seller is under no such obligation. So your legal protection is much greater with a used car dealer than it is with the guy up the street selling his old truck.

Certified Pre-Owned Fords

Of course, our selection of general used vehicles is great, but if you want the very highest quality possible, then you should take a good look at our certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. The certified pre-owned label is not just a fancy way of saying "used." It means the original manufacturer has inspected it and bought back a vehicle because it is in excellent condition. In order for a vehicle to be a certified pre-owned from Ford, it cannot be too old or have too many miles on it. While still having to pass a rigorous 172-point inspection.

When you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle, you know it is in the best condition. But you also get greater peace of mind with the benefits of the Ford CPO program. All Ford certified pre-owned vehicles come with a 12-month or 12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty, along with a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. A vehicle history report is provided with every Ford CPO vehicle. Also, if any reconditioning is found to be required during the inspection, then it must be performed before it can be sold. This kind of value is something you simply will not find with a used vehicle from a private seller, or at another used car dealer that does not have certified pre-owned vehicles.

Our Service Center and Parts Department

For us, having the best selection of used and certified pre-owned vehicles is only the beginning. We also offer service and parts assistance for years to come. If you buy a used car from a friend or someone across town and find you need service performed, then where do you go? You can spend hours looking for a good mechanic, and you have to hope they actually know how to work on your vehicle and that they are as good as they say.

Here at DePaula Ford, our certified service center offers expert maintenance, service, and repairs for our customers. This means you never have to worry about where to go or wonder if they will know how to care for your vehicle correctly. Our service professionals have already seen every used vehicle we sell, and they specialize in Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs. Whether you have a simple question about a feature of your vehicle, need scheduled maintenance, or need repairs after a collision. Our service center will be here for you to get you back on the road quickly.

They say a craftsman is only as good as his tools, and that is why we use factory parts whenever possible when working on vehicles here at our service center. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are designed specifically to work with your vehicle, so you know they are the right part when you need a replacement. By using OEM parts, we also ensure any warranty coverage you have is not compromised, and factory parts are often backed by their own warranties. This is just one more way we work hard to ensure we are the best-used car dealer for you.

Help with Financing

For a lot of people, financing for a vehicle is a huge source of stress, and we understand that. Discussing money and financing can cause anxiety for a lot of new buyers and even buyers who have gone through the process before, it is just human nature. That is why our financing experts work hard to take the stress and fear out of financing and make sure you understand what is happening each step of the way. Our financing professionals are friendly, helpful, and always happy to answer any questions you have. We want to make sure you are entirely comfortable with any offer you choose.

When you go with a private seller, you typically have one financing option: cash up-front. Private sellers are not interested in working with you to get a loan or any other financing option; they just want to sell their vehicle and move on. That is fine if you can pay for a used car in its entirety, but here at DePaula Ford, we are here to help all of our customers. If you need to figure out financing for a used vehicle, then a reputable used car dealer is definitely the way to go.
