SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AAA Inspected powered by SureSale, a new program that helps consumers buy quality used cars with confidence, is now available at Oklahoma City Volkswagen, the first dealer in the city to offer it.
Due to the global microchip shortage, the combination of high demand and low supply of used cars has driven prices way up, in Oklahoma alone prices are up by as much as 37%. AAA Inspected is an additional benefit for car shoppers, allowing them to more accurately assess vehicle quality to be sure they're not overpaying for a used vehicle.
"It's a seller's market. There aren't a lot of vehicles. Car buyers need to take every precaution and not make a snap judgment when buying," said Leslie Gamble, Manager of Public and Government Affairs, AAA Club Alliance. "That's why AAA has partnered with SureSale to roll out AAA Inspected and provide car buyers with a good housekeeping seal of approval for used cars at OKC Volkswagen."
AAA Inspected is powered by SureSale, the only vehicle report that includes both vehicle history and current condition, and is easily accessible online or at the dealership via a QR code. SureSale helps bridge the gap between car buyers and sellers by providing a comprehensive accounting of a vehicle's past history, current condition and future performance. "With the SureSale multi-point inspection, a mechanic checks everything from the tires to reporting if there's a previous wreck. That's why it's good to rely on a trusted company like AAA" said Gamble. "We're verifying vehicle quality and providing that information at no extra cost to buyers."
AAA Inspected vehicles come with a limited warranty and additional AAA member benefits. The program is currently available in Oklahoma and Kansas. Car buyers in those states can access AAA Inspected, powered by SureSale at AAA.com/Inspected.
Gamble recently sat down with the KWTV News 9 morning team at "Can You Relate" to discuss rising car prices and how car buyers can find quality used cars with AAA Inspected powered by SureSale. Watch the full interview at KWTV News 9.
SureSale makes it easy for auto retailers, independent technicians and repair facilities to share trusted vehicle history and real-time condition information about used vehicles with the SureSale app, and for car shoppers to access this proprietary data online or via a QR code. The SureSale vehicle quality report analyzes thousands of vehicle data points, including history and condition, helping increase consumer purchase peace of mind. SureSale, which won the 2020 Gold Stevie® Award for "Innovation of the Year," was founded to help the auto market meet the demand for inspected, high-quality pre-owned vehicles among the US' 40 million used car buyers. SureSale is based in Santa Monica, CA. Visit suresale.com for more information.
