At AutoMax, we’re always surprised when people tell us they didn’t know they could get a used car with affordable payments even with a less-than-desirable credit history in the North Carolina Research Triangle. That’s because AutoMax is a North Carolina automotive legacy. For the last 30 years, we’ve helped people buy high quality, reliable used cars at affordable prices, and that’s why our customers keep coming back, and sending their family and friends to us, too.
First-time buy here pay here car buyers come to us with lots of questions and rumors about what it means to purchase a car from a used car dealership like ours. At first, they’re weary because they don’t know what we’re about. But, we have the history and customer satisfaction to back up everything we do, which is why we think we’re the best car dealership near you to turn to when it’s time for you to upgrade your ride. Here are some of those questions and what we tell folks who ask them.
A major myth we hear often is that used cars at a dealership like ours are the worst of the worst. That’s simply not true! Not every buy here pay here dealership is the same. However, you can count on AutoMax to sell reliable, safe vehicles. We stand by every used car we sell. First, before we put any vehicle on our lot, we carry out a rigorous inspection and then give them a fair price.
Vehicles that pass our inspection are listed for sale on our website, and we invite anyone interested in our cars to test drive them before purchase. For each vehicle we sell, we provide a free 12-month or 15,000 mile warranty, good at any of our Preferred Repair Facilities. We also provide you with free oil changes for the entire life of your loan at our conveniently-located preferred shops, up to four times a year. And if your car needs repairs that will take more than a day, we’ll even pay for your rental car.
If our cars weren’t reliable, it would cost us far too much out-of-pocket to make these promises to our respected customers!
We don’t know where they got their information, but so many folks tell us they thought our down payments would be outrageous in order to secure one of our car loans. That’s because traditional lending has convinced people that in order to qualify for a car loan, you need to supply a lot of cash upfront. Pay here buy here car dealers like AutoMax are different.
On the listing of each car offered for sale, we post a minimum down payment. You’ll never be surprised by the dollar amount we’re requested as your down payment, and they all vary based on the age of the car you’re looking at, the type of vehicle it is, and the overall cost of the vehicle. Our down payments are usually as low as $395, but you can save even more on your down payment when we offer special promotions throughout the year.
To get the best deals, we recommend taking a short drive, just out of town. AutoMax has two convenient locations that are nearby both Raleigh and Durham. Because we aren’t located inside these major cities, we can pass off the money we save on our real estate to each of our customers.
All you have to do is visit us at AutoMax of Henderson, located at 519 N. Garnett St., or AutoMax of Youngsville, at 512 US Highway 1. Get driving directions on our website.
