When you buy a used vehicle from a dealership such as Classic Chevrolet, you don’t have quite so much to worry about. If you are considering buying a used vehicle from an individual or a small car lot that sells only used vehicles, you cannot count on the seller being completely honest. When you buy used at a large dealership, you can find certified pre-owned vehicles and the dealership will process the registration for you.
Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure the title you are getting is not a rebuilt title. If a vehicle has a rebuilt title, that usually means that it was totaled and then repaired. If the title is a rebuilt title, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should discount the vehicle – sometimes an insurance company will total a vehicle with hail damage and other damage that doesn’t affect the frame.
Accidents and CarFax
Ask for the CarFax – and if no CarFax is available, find out if the dealership has any information or noticed anything with the vehicle that shows it could have been in a crash. You can also look for signs. A different paint color on the inside of the door jams means that the vehicle was painted. While this doesn’t necessarily mean it was in a crash, it could have been. When you test drive, have a friend watch as you drive away to see if the vehicle dog tracks.
Ask if the vehicle looks as though the previous owner kept up on maintenance. While you can’t tell how often the vehicle was maintained less for a CarFax report, you or the dealership can look for signs such as an oil-caked mess under the valve covers, foul-smelling transmission fluid and dirty oil.
Ask the salesperson if the vehicle was ordered with any special options. Sometimes a buyer might add a towing package that didn’t come with that particular trim level, an upgraded stereo system, different wheels, a different engine, and additional safety equipment that might have been optional.
Be sure to check the tires to ensure that they have enough tread to last for at least a year. If the tires are worn uneven or are low on tread, you may want to negotiate an alignment and tires into the deal.

If you are in the market for a Silverado, but need something a little more “Bad,” consider getting a Silverado Tuscany Badlander truck. Stop by Classic Chevrolet to see one of these “bad boy” trucks and to take a test drive if you need something with a little more oomph.
Standard Badlander Package Features
The Tuscany Badlander standard package features a 6-inch ProComp suspension lift kit and heavy duty Pro-Comp performance shocks so that you can go where you need to go, whether in in the fields or in the woods. The 20-inch Tuscany Crusher wheels raise the truck even more, plus give it that “Badlander” look.
The wheels are fitted with 325 BF Goodrich all terrain tires to help you navigate through snow and mud. Of course, with the lift kit, you need different alignment settings, so the installer aligns the front end to match.
As with any other changes, these changes don’t just affect the ride and height. They also affect the speed and mileage, thus the tire sensors, speedometer and odometer are recalibrated for the correct speed and mileage.
With the height of the Badlander, it can be difficult to get in. The standard Tuscany Badlander package includes three-step wheel to wheel bars so you can climb in easier.
Additional standard features include OEM Real Chrome mirror caps and chrome door handles, a billet aluminum grille, the “Badlander by Tuscany” graphics, painted bow ties, a custom stainless steel dual exhaust, Tuscany logo headrests and color-keyed fender flares. The Badlander package also comes standard with a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty.
