Featured Used Car | VW Jetta | Milwaukee, WI

Featured Used Car: VW Jetta
If you haven’t got quite enough bread to lay down for a brand-new dream car just yet, don’t worry. Your local Boucher dealership in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is not about to let you hitchhike or walk to work.

If your old vehicle is just limping along and seems to need new repairs every month, it is probably time to get a more reliable ride. The Volkswagen Jetta is the choice car sought after by kids in college and young professionals climbing the corporate ladder alike. In fact, even grandmothers love them because they are so easy to drive with that turn-on-a-dime rack and pinion steering.

Value-Pricing

When you purchase a pre-owned Volkswagen Jetta from Boucher Auto Group, you are getting the best value for your money. While it may be great to have all the options you want loaded in the latest model, not everyone is ready to wrap themselves up in an extensive payment plan at top dollar. A cheap used car can be the perfect go-between that allows you to save up your rainy-day fund and lower your monthly expenses to invest in a new car down the road.

Although a brand-new vehicle may be a safer bet if you want years of reliable low-maintenance driving, a cheap used car can be slowly reconstructed to like-new condition as your budget permits. And when you purchase your used Volkswagen Jetta at our dealership in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, you avoid the steep depreciation penalty and save thousands of dollars off the sticker price of a vehicle with some road experience.

Fully Inspected & Reconditioned Vehicles on Sale

All the used vehicles that we sell at our dealership are thoroughly inspected and reconditioned to achieve the maximum functionality. If we see any issues that would be in need of immediate repair, if you brought the car to a car shop, we put the investment into fixing them before you drive off.

We are only able to do this because we are a high-volume dealership. We are able to dedicate our team of factory-trained and ASE-certified technicians to service our used cars before we put them up for sale on days when we are not overbooked. This saves you the costs of rehabilitating a vehicle right after you purchase it or worrying about break downs.

Many of the pre-owned vehicles that we sell offer an extended warranty that assures you that the vehicle is mechanically fit and problem-free. It is also possible to purchase a used vehicle that still retains the factory warranty or that has just exhausted the time on it.

These vehicles are the best value because you have a clean slate to work with and no worries about a poor maintenance history. If all the work on the vehicle was still covered by warranty, then you can bet that repairs were minimal and done by professionals using factory parts.

When you purchase vehicles that are long past the warranty, they usually have too many issues compounded to make them a safe investment. Who knows what mechanic did what and how many maintenance issues lapsed after the warranty expired.

The Dangers of Private Sellers

Because a private seller is skeptical about tying up more money in a vehicle, you rarely find great deals. If they had access to a good mechanic who could fix any issues that are troubling them with the vehicle, they would probably hang onto it. If they are not concerned about losing thousands of dollars by selling it prematurely, then why won’t they even come down a grand in negotiations?

As you will realize, private sellers are usually desperate for money and only willing to sell at a high price if the vehicle looks good and appears to function normally. There may be intermittent problems or other hidden dangers that you don’t know about.

A private seller simply has no reputation to uphold. He is looking for a situation sale and doesn’t care what you think of him 5 seconds after you hand the dough over. When you are dealing with a large dealership like ours that is deeply invested in providing an automotive resource for the community, you can trust in our reputation.

It is wise for a business that has a large brick & mortar presence to treat all its customers grandly, in hopes of retaining them for life. That is the only manner by which a high-volume business model becomes profitable. You have to really manage your company the right way and keep your customers happy to afford your overhead.

In fact, we would rather absorb the costs of any legitimate dispute over the fairness and quality of a car than to ruin an experience with our customers. Every individual sale is only important if it leads to lifelong customer retention. The profit margins for a single vehicle are marginal.

When you consider this wisdom, it is a wonder why people go off chasing those too-good-to-be-true deals that involve little capital commitment for diamonds in the rough. When you consider the full value of our inspection and reconditioning services, the professionalism of our staff, and the accountability to our clients, there is only one clear choice.

Purchase a Cheap Used Car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Boucher Auto Group is not only known for having excellent values but also excellent customer service. When you stop by our dealership for a test-drive, you will be greeted by our friendly customer care team members or sales staff. No matter what questions or needs you might have, they will always have the answers.

Our staff has decades of experience needed to streamline the automotive purchase process. You won’t be left guessing when the car will be ready or whether you can get financing. We have a financing department to help you obtain auto loans and a sales team that is committed to fitting you with a car you love.

Financing a Used Vehicle

One reason why private sellers have a hard time selling their used vehicle is the lenders. The lenders simply don’t trust private sellers and are not eager to open up their wallets when it comes time for an auto loan request. For this reason, the market for private sellers is limited and often forces them to hold onto a vehicle unless the repairs are too costly to make that practical.

When you shop at our dealership, you can bet that many lenders will provide you a loan if you have good credit. This is because our dealership has a good rapport with lenders who trust our products.

The worst fear of a lender is for you to go underwater on your loan and default. They are forced to write the investment off as a loss if you stop paying and the car is a lemon. Owners who pay a lot of money for a vehicle that is only worth spare parts a few months later may be so angry that they will refuse to pay off the loan.

Contact Us

Please call us or stop by our dealership today for a test-drive of one of these value-priced VW models. Performance, safety, iconic styling, and world-class handling are only a phone call away. Boucher has 17 locations throughout southeastern Wisconsin. There are 3 dealerships that are Volkswagen. Locations in Racine, Franklin, and Janesville. If you want a Certified Pre-Owned Jetta, get in touch with these stores. If you want to see what all Boucher has to offer for Jetta’s and all other makes and models, just visit Boucher.com.

Featured Used Car | Sierra 1500 | Milwaukee, WI

Featured Used Car: Sierra 1500

Owning a quality work truck has never been more affordable. This is because the Boucher Auto Group in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has the multiple pre-owned versions of the GMC Sierra 1500 on our lots and ready to sell. And a work truck of this caliber is deserving of your attention. You can expect your model to have a towing capacity that is close to 10,000 pounds backed by over 300 pound-feet of torque. We have the crew cab, double cab, and standard cab models to choose from. Many of the GMC Sierra 1500 trucks on our lots are of the same generation as the latest models and, therefore, have negligible differences.

Value-Pricing

If you want a world-class work truck at a song of a price, the Boucher Auto Group in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the name that you can trust. We are able to provide you the best value for your hard-earned money because we have a clientele who take care of their vehicles. When they trade them in for a new truck, we are able to pass along the savings. Many vehicles in our fleet were previously leased and maintained by our factory-trained technicians. This ensures that they are built from all original equipment and serviced according to the factory maintenance schedule. The vehicles are often still under warranty, come with an extended warranty, or have just exhausted a factory warranty and remain in like-new condition.

The Minimal Effects of Higher Mileage

Although a used vehicle may have higher mileage on the clock, this should not intimidate you from purchasing it. The value of a cheap used car with high miles is evident when you purchase it from our dealership. This is because the Kelley Blue Book prices set a standard rate that is far below the functional value of a reconditioned used vehicle that has been run on synthetic lubricants its whole life. Therein lies the distinction. Synthetic lubricants have revolutionized the automotive industry and doubled the life of late-model vehicles. When you have a master mechanic go over the vehicle and toughen up any weak spots, this also ensures your long-term satisfaction and reduces the risk of premature failure from wear and tear.

Vehicle Inspection & Reconditioning

When you have veteran mechanics who have worked on all makes and models their entire lives, you can rest assured that every vehicle sold is safe and solid. Our mechanics receive ongoing factory training and understand the engineering of automotive and mechanical systems. Having this wisdom allows them to consider the problems encountered without hang-ups. They are armed with sophisticated diagnostic computers and know from experience what parts tend to break down and fail prematurely. They can simply test-drive a vehicle and pick up on a number of issues that are difficult for laymen to detect. No vehicle on our lots goes up for sale without passing a rigorous inspection that protects our reputation.

The Dangers of Private Sellers

When you are dealing with a private seller, there is no way to form a relationship. They are not able to provide a warranty or any assurances if things go awry. Even if you do succeed in winning a judgment against them in court, you will find that collections are difficult or impossible. Winning in court may force you to gamble with the legal expenses of hiring a lawyer and other court filing fees which you may never recoup. A private seller can claim bankruptcy or easily hide his funds and assets in a family members name to protect them.

When you are dealing with a dealership that is dedicated to serving the community, you don’t have to worry about being shortchanged or taken advantage of at any time. We provide accountability for our products and have every intention of retaining our customers for life. The profit margins from any individual sale are meager and leave us little incentive to act unfairly and terminate our relationship. We would rather that you get the best deal possible and that you share the positive press of our dealership with others. In addition, a private seller simply doesn’t invest the money into reconditioning their vehicle and can leave you with a lot of unexpected problems and repairs on your hands.

Financing Department

Because we have quality products, the banks are willing to lend money to customers who purchase a cheap used car from us or a more expensive pre-owned vehicle. Banks are not easy to compel into financing used vehicles because they do not want to be left holding the bill if your default. And customers will readily default if they cannot get to work and need a new car. Because our vehicles are known to go the distance, banks are happy to whip out their paychecks whenever our financing department calls. They know that the vehicles which we sell are value-priced and that customers will not stop payments on a loan. Although we are not able to guarantee lending, we believe that our lenders will give you more opportunities.

Friendly Customer Service

Our dealership always works to ensure that customers are excited about their purchases and satisfied. Our sales team has the knowledge of features on any used or new vehicle in our lot and can find the lifestyle choice that suits you. When it comes to the Sierra, we believe that this truck is a hot deal because you dodge the steep appreciation of a brand-new work truck that is going to get dirty and a few scuffs on it anyhow. Instead of paying for that showroom finish and pristine paint job, you can harvest years of strong driving out of your truck.

Why Everyone Should Buy a Work Truck

A work truck is so versatile and so well-built compared to a consumer uniframe car, it is a wonder why everyone doesn’t own them. Cars don’t have bumpers and are easily damaged in any fender-bender situation. The Sierra is a tank that will protect you with its large bumpers and high stance. You can run right over cars like a monster truck and drive anywhere you desire. When you have a little compact car, it is hard to take it off-road without getting jammed up and bottoming out. Perhaps the best virtue of a work truck is that you can make the truck work for you instead of just putting up every paycheck to work for the truck.

A work truck can help you do a variety of work at home and to take side jobs on the weekends. Whether you are a plumber, electrician, mechanic, or a handyman, a work truck provides you with the payload you need to haul your supplies. If you are landscaping or construction, it helps you haul the materials and equipment of the trade to any location. And because work trucks are built to withstand heavy duty cycles and extreme loads, you can bet that every part is beefed up and built more sold than its commercial car counterparts. And now that we have steeply discounted trucks for sale on our lots, there is no better time to invest in a vehicle that pays for itself and lasts longer than any compact car out there.
