We are a Reputable Dealership

Founded in 2000, Car Outlet has a simple goal: to strengthen our communities through transportation independence. We have built this company on the simple idea to provide a place for people to buy a car in a safe environment and where they are treated with respect. We know the difference that a high-quality used car, used truck, used SUV or minivan can make in the lives of busy families and hard-working individuals, and we are dedicated to meeting that need. At our 11 Car Outlet locations, we offer a wide variety of affordable, high-quality used vehicles that can get you on the road to success and driving with confidence. With more than 1,000 cars available, we know that we can meet the needs of individuals and families.

The Secret to High Quality Vehicles

Our cars are guaranteed to be top quality. Every vehicle that is for sale at one of our Car Outlet locations has passed an inspection to ensure it is reliable and well-maintained. Only the best cars are good enough for our customers. Each sale is also accompanied by a three month/3,000 mile warranty. That means that even after you drive off our lot, your Car Outlet vehicle is protected. If your car requires service you can take advantage of one of our 4 service locations. Our service department is staffed by professional mechanics and is reserved exclusively for current Car Outlet customers. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will do the work right and get you back on the road as soon as possible.
