Keyless Entry & Ignition

At the push of a button you can start your vehicle’s ignition and unlock the doors once you’re a few feet away. Not only is this feature incredibly convenient, it’s perfect on those cold days when you don’t want to wait for your vehicle to warm up. Plus, you don’t have to fumble for your keys!

Auxiliary Port

This is a must-have! While it’s ideal that a vehicle has Bluetooth and/or an infotainment display, that’s not always realistic when shopping for an older used vehicle. Even if you’re vehicle doesn’t have Apple CarPlay or Bluetooth, an auxiliary port is all you need.  It makes it easy to connect your phone to play music right through your vehicle’s speakers.

A Sunroof

There is nothing like driving down on a hot summer day with all the windows open. A sunroof is a stunning addition to any cabin and adds another level of sophistication. Best of all, it brings in more light into the cabin, rain or shine. This feature is also very common and can be found on nearly any pre-owned vehicle make and model.

Automatic Headlights

Simply start the vehicle’s ignition and the headlights come on in an instant. Whether you’re driving around town or on country roads, automatic headlights are essential so you can focus on the road ahead rather than having to remember to turn the brights off and on. It’s nice to have one less thing to worry about!

Cruise Control

While it’s simple, cruise control can really help you maximize your fuel economy. With a couple of clicks of the button or lever on the steering wheel, it’s smooth sailing! Not only is it convenient, but it makes highway driving a breeze. Best of all, it’s easy to use and is found on most pre-owned vehicles.

Leather Upholstery

A premium, comfortable interior really adds another level of luxury to a pre-owned vehicle. Whether it’s natural leather or a synthetic faux leather, just the look and feel of a cabin with this detail really adds a lot. Best of all, when you buy a used vehicle you have the ability to get a vehicle with a high-end feature like this for less than you would be spending for a new model.
