DETROIT – Used-car shoppers now have access to a large inventory of pre-owned, low-mileage vehicles available online through GM’s new Factory Pre-Owned Collection.
The collection, which is expected to debut next month, is an expansion of GM’s Shop-Click-Drive service.
It is designed to create a “simpler, easier experience” for buyers, GM said.
Online shoppers can browse the collection, which features a nationwide inventory of more than 30,000 vehicles, to find the vehicle of their choice. All vehicles have fewer than 37,000 miles.
Then they pick a participating GM dealer and reserve their vehicle using Shop-Click-Drive.
The vehicle is then picked up from the dealer.
The Factory Pre-Owned Collection also features a three-day/150-mile exchange program, a three-month trial of the OnStar Guidance Plan and the Sirius/XM Satellite Radio All-Access package. Vehicles also come with roadside assistance and courtesy transportation during the warranty period.
The vehicles will get an extended factory bumper-to-bumper warranty, 12 months or 12,000 miles for Buick, GMC and Chevrolet vehicles and two years, 20,000 miles for Cadillac.
Alan Batey, president of GM North America, said the new online collection is “great for our dealers and GM because it introduces new buyers to our brands and increases residual values.”
Edmunds says: This is one of the game-changers in the used-car online marketplace. Car shoppers who prefer to browse digitally should embrace GM’s new online portal.
