What is a Company or Executive Demo?
A company or executive demo is a new vehicle that has been registered to a Dealership or Manufacturer and is driven by one of their employees. This enables the company or manufacturer to showcase their new models out on the roads so customers can see and experience them.
Is a Company or Executive Demo considered a Used Vehicle?
Absolutely! Any demo that has been registered and licensed by a dealer or manufacturer is considered a used vehicle. They are far from what you think of a used vehicle. When a customer purchases a demo from VanDusen’s Chevrolet Buick GMC, they usually have less then 12,750 km’s or as low as a 2500 km’s. Just depends how fast someone buys it.
What about the Manufacturer Warranty?
When customers purchase a company or executive demo, you have to understand that the Manufacturer’s Warranty began the day it was registered and licensed. This means if the Standard Warranty is 3 year/60,000 km’s and the demo has been registered for 4 months, you now have 2 years 8 months Warranty or the balance of the 60,000 km’s (whichever come first).
See the VanDusen Advantage Demo Plan because we make buying a company or executive demo a positive experience so customers don’t have to worry.
What about the usage of the vehicle?
Buying a company or executive demo from VanDusen Chevrolet Buick GMC is a great experience. Our Service Department is responsible for the maintenance of every demo. Oil changes, tire rotations, clean ups and the Multi-Point Health Check is completed on every demo because we want to ensure the vehicle still feels and smells new for the customer.
Our employees take pride and are responsible for the caring and cleaning of their demos. It is always ready to be shown to any potential customer.
What about the Manufacturer’s FREE Oil Changes?
Once the demo has been registered, the oil change time starts. That is why we have the VanDusen Demo Advantage Plan because we want our customers to be happy with their new vehicle.
What kind of deal can I expect when buying a demo?
Here is the great news. When you purchase a company or executive demo, they still qualify for all current Manufacturer Rebates and Interest Rates. The dealer discount is calculated based on the mileage or the length of time it has been registered. This means a customer could still get 0% when they finance a model that qualifies. This is where a used car and a demo are different. The banks determine used car rates but the Manufacturer determines them on demos.
Can I Lease a Demo?
Good News! Yes as long as the Manufacturer has leasing programs. Leasing a demo can be a great idea. Not everyone understands this because it is listed as a used car. Fortunately, the manufacturer has new vehicle programs that work for demos. The bigger your discount and if you’re a low-mileage driver, you can get yourself an impressively low lease payment.
Cash or Finance Options for a Company and Executive Demo
The Manufacturer also provide new car incentives that also work for demos. This means you can use all those amazing discounts and pay cash or you can take advantage of lower interest rate that is available from the Manufacturer.
Everything is determine “On Approved Credit” but we also have an amazing finance team that works with everyone. Slow, bad or no credit, our team specializes with all types of applications.
