DETROIT – People in the U.S. who are looking to buy a used Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac will soon have access to an online national inventory of low-mileage former General Motors lease, daily rental and company-owned vehicles never before available to the public.

“We know that many of our customers who are shopping for a used car want to complete more of the process online, and that number is growing,” GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra said. “GM is already a leader in online new car shopping with our Shop-Click-Drive service, and we are expanding it with the Factory Pre-Owned Collection, making GM the first automaker to offer this choice to consumers.”

GM’s Factory Pre-Owned Collection will feature a nationwide inventory of more than 30,000 vehicles, all with fewer than 37,000 miles, and including an extended factory bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.

Consumers can easily compare suggested prices on the site to what others in their area have paid using the Kelley Blue Book Fair Market Range, which is based in part on what others in the vehicle’s area have paid for the same or similar vehicles. Customers can also get a Carfax Vehicle History Report on the vehicles displayed on the site.

Online car shoppers will be able to browse the Factory Pre-Owned Collection site when it launches in February:

  • Choose a participating GM dealer and reserve their vehicle using the Shop-Click-Drive experience
  • Finalize their purchase and take delivery of their vehicle from their selected 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 and more. Vehicles also come with roadside assistance and courtesy transportation during the warranty period.
