Pre-Owned Car FAQs in Tifton, GA

A pre-owned car is a popular choice for many drivers due to its affordable nature. Here at Griffin Ford Lincoln, we have a large selection of used cars, trucks and SUVs to choose from. Since our pre-owned inventory has garnered a variety of FAQs, we’ve decided to take it upon ourselves to create a list of answers for them. Plus, our expert team has your back if you think of any additional questions that aren’t included in this list. Keep reading to learn more about our pre-owned models.


What’s the difference between used and CPO?

Think of our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) inventory as top-tier like-new models. These vehicles are a cut above the regular pre-owned models since they undergo a rigorous multipoint inspection and must abide by the age and mileage restrictions. Once they’re crowned as a CPO vehicle, you’ll get to enjoy special warranties that other pre-owned models simply can’t promise.

What is good mileage on a used car?

This answer may vary, simply because good mileage differs between makes and models. However, many new models can last an exorbitant amount of time due to the ever-evolving powertrain technology that improves year after year. In general, modern cars can last up to around 200,000 miles — maybe even 300,000 miles. Again, make sure to do your research into the particular model you’re interested in and what its average longevity is.

How do I know that I’m getting a good deal?

If you’re shopping at Griffin Ford Lincoln, you’ll gain access to the best possible pricing on our pre-owned models. We highly recommend also doing your own research on the fluctuating car market. Utilize trustworthy third-party sources such as Kelley Blue Book® or Edmunds to get accurate price estimates for the model you’re eyeing. Keep in mind that these values can change every month, so if you find a great price, you’ll want to grab it while it’s available. If you’re interested in making a trade with us, utilize our online appraisal tool before you pick your next ride from our pre-owned inventory.

Why should I buy from a dealership?

We could write a whole book about the benefits of buying from a dealership like ours. However, to sum it up, we are committed to disclose clear pricing and be 100 percent transparent about the condition of the like-new vehicle. Not only that, but we also offer special pre-owned car specials and special financing. If your ride ever needs some TLC, make our service department your go-to and you may always see a familiar face. A private party simply can’t promise any of these benefits and securities. Don’t roll the dice — visit Griffin Ford Lincoln for all of your automotive needs.
