Used Car Dealer in York, PA

You'll Leave Our Lot Satisfied!

If you’ve been hunting exhaustively for that perfect set of wheels and you’ve reached a sticking point in your research, we at Thornton Automotive have a question for you. Have you considered buying a pre-owned model? We think you should! And there’s no better place to look than one of our used car dealerships, where you’ll find expansive selections of vehicles that are affordable, reliable, and ready to roll out today. Don’t wait — join us at one of our many locations during our convenient business hours!

Inventory

At Thornton, we’re proud of our large fleet of used cars. However, we know that negotiating such a packed lot can be a bit overwhelming, which is why we’ve loaded up our website with online tools to help you do some research before you head our way. Start your search with the Pre-Owned Inventory tab at the top of our website. From here, you can browse our selection by choosing a specific make you’re looking for, opting to see only our clearance, certified, or one-owner vehicles, or pulling up our entire inventory of used cars. Then, just use the list of handy filters on the left side of your screen to zero in on a vehicle with exactly the price, mileage, or specific features you’re looking for!

Love It or Leave It

When you step onto our lot, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you find the right car at the right price, right away. However, we understand that you may need some wiggle room when it comes to committing to a large purchase like this. That’s why we created our Love It or Leave It return policy. Under this program, you’ll be able to return your pre-owned vehicle for an exchange or full refund with no questions asked during the first four days that you own it! This applies to all of our used cars, so you’ll be able to buy with confidence and drive with peace of mind. Would you really buy a pre-owned vehicle from someone who wouldn’t allow you to return it? We didn’t think so!

Service

Once you do land on that ideal ride, you’ll want to make sure it’s primed to last you for years and years. Let one of our service departments help you out! In addition to routine maintenance like oil changes, brake checks, and tire rotations, we can also take on bigger jobs like engine repair and transmission services thanks to the cutting-edge equipment in our garages. Count on our ASE Certified staff to treat your vehicle with care while you unwind in our Wi-Fi equipped waiting area! Or, feel free to use our complimentary shuttle and head elsewhere while we’re working on your car. Ready to come see us? Just fill out our Service Appointment form to schedule your visit.

There’s no need to prolong your search for a used car dealer in York, PA — you just found one! Thornton Automotive offers the selection, satisfaction, and service that you deserve, so plan your visit today. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Ryan and Kelly made buying a car go as smoothly as possible. I haven’t been in a new car since 2005 and I was super nervous. Got me the car I wanted for a payment I can afford!

Highly recommend anyone buying a car to buy with Thorton Automotive Dover! Made everything smooth, easy and stress-free while I was in a bit of a rush to buy and I live out of state. I am so thankful for all of their help, and I drove off of the lot in a beautiful vehicle that I would not have thought was in my budget. No questions asked, I will recommend them to everyone in search of a new ride.

BEST CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE EVER.....These people really go to the extreme to help you get you into a vehicle that is what YOU want. To say my credit was less than perfect is quite the understatement I was on the low side of poor for my credit score and I was laughed out of other dealerships I had inquired about a vehicle at Thornton automotive and I had been texting with Desiree their super customer service ambassador. She told me to stop by that they could do more for me than anybody else and they did. Kelly Raber and Sales manager Chuck really went to bat for me and they were able to not only get me financed but I was able to drive away with an extremely loaded SUV. They actually treated me like I was the most important customer they ever had. Five stars it's not near enough for this company as far as I'm concerned they have a customer for life.

I’m really glad I came to Thornton to get my car. A friend recommended it to me and I really think they were the best option. All of the staff members are incredibly friendly and professional. I worked with Chris Shade and he was fantastic. He did everything he could to work with my situation and make sure I left the dealership with a car that I loved and could afford. I’d like to think any of my future car purchases would be done through them as well. 10/10 would recommend.

Nothing but great professionalism at Thorton Automotive, Dover. The salesman, Chris, was very helpful and answered every question I had. He even took time out of his day off to make sure everything went smoothly when purchasing my car. I will recommend them to anyone needing to purchase a new vehicle.
