Benefits of Being a VIP Customer

•    VIP Pricing on new, pre-owned and lease vehicles
•    A personal VIP Coordinator to assist you at any time during your shopping experience.
•    Superior customer service from our network of trusted managers and sales professionals

Procedure

Whether you want to buy now or in the future, simply begin by contacting the VIP Services Department.  A VIP Coordinator is prepared to listen to your needs and assist you every step of the way. Our VIP Coordinators are thoroughly trained to ensure a smooth experience, and, they never make commission off your purchase. Since the process varies depending on the clients specific needs, it is further described below.
 
Pre-Owned Vehicles

Researching pre-owned vehicles can be an overwhelming task. Our VIP Coordinators consider each of your needs and are happy to send you a list of corresponding vehicles. Simply tell us your preferred makes, models, year range, mileage range, color preferences, add-ons (such as leather & navigation) and budget. Once we carefully filter through our thousands of vehicles, we will email you a list of available options. From there, let us know which vehicle(s) you would like to test drive, and we will have someone we trust contact you from the appropriate dealership.

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO)

Certifying a vehicle is a great option for customers who want extra assurance when buying a pre-owned vehicle. Every vehicle Group 1 Automotive sells is thoroughly inspected by the dealerships service department. However, the pre-delivery inspection for CPO vehicles is deeper and more thorough than ordinary vehicles. CPO vehicles are refurbished by the manufacturer and typically come with an extended warranty and other additional benefits. Since CPO vehicles are evaluated at the manufacturer's standards, they must be sold at the corresponding dealership. If you see a vehicle at a different manufacturer's dealership and would like it certified, VIP Services will arrange for the vehicle to be brought to the appropriate dealership and certified quickly. 

New Vehicles

If you are interested in a new vehicle, our VIP Coordinators will contact the New Car Manager at the appropriate dealership(s). Expediting your inquiry straight to a manager not only saves you time but it also ensures you receive competitive pricing and allows you to work with one of the dealerships most knowledgeable professionals. When you are ready to begin test driving, simply let us know and we will schedule an appointment with someone we trust to take excellent care of you.
