Why Buy Used at the Dealership

You might view buying a used car as a risky deal with a stranger, but you don’t have to buy used from a private seller — dealerships offer high-quality used cars you can trust, a large inventory of options, and greater peace of mind that your automotive investment is a smart decision.

Faster process

Buying from a dealership is much faster than buying from a private seller because the dealership does all the paperwork for you. When you buy from a private seller, you and the seller have to handle transferring the title and registration, which can take up a lot of extra time.


If you buy a used car from a private seller, you don’t have the option of paying for it over time. If you don’t have a big chunk of change — usually a few thousand dollars — up front, you probably won’t be able to purchase the vehicle.
When you buy a used car from Mama’s Used Cars, you can take out a loan and pay off the car over a few months. This is an especially good option if you need a car right now and don’t have the money to buy one outright. Plus, if you have a vehicle you can trade in, it will shave money off your monthly payment.


When you get a used car from Mama’s Used Cars, you’ll know that it’s been inspected and any necessary repairs have been done, so you can feel confident you’re not investing in a lemon. You can have the private seller’s car inspected by a mechanic, but that will cost you more money.

Certified Pre-Owned Programs

Only dealerships have Certified Pre-Owned Programs. CPO cars are used cars that meet strict criteria, such as being younger than six years old with less than 75,000 miles on them. These vehicles go through a rigorous inspection process, come with a full vehicle history report, and usually offer extended warranties.
