Why Buy Used Cars?

Some of our customers feel trepidation at the thought of purchasing used models, especially those that come at such affordable prices. That’s why we’d like to share with you just how thoroughly we inspect every model that comes our way before putting it for sale on our lot. Expertly trained mechanics survey the interior and exterior, hunting for both aesthetic and mechanical issues. We not only test the most important features, but also all of the electronics and amenities that should still working perfectly when our customers gets behind the wheel. Even after these steps are completed, we’ll take the vehicle on several test drives to ensure that you get the performance you deserve. So, when you choose to purchase a used model from us, you’ll get a superb vehicle at a huge discount—what’s not to love?

Inventory

If you’d like to start looking through some of our affordable used options, just click on our Pre-Owned Inventory tab and then select All Makes. This will lead you to a results page with a huge number of filters you can select to customize your results. Just be sure to go straight to the Price header and select choices that are under $15,000. From there, you can become more specific by filtering through the make, model, fuel economy, and more! Once you’re seeing only a small list of vehicles matching your criteria, we’d suggest that you click on their exterior photos to dig a little bit deeper. You’ll be able to view details about the particular model and access a history report to ensure that you’re completely confident in your choice.

Financing

Once you’ve found the model that looks perfect for you, the only step left to complete is the financing! This involves taking the total price of the model you want and breaking it down over a number of years, so that you can afford to buy a car while still staying on top of other important things in your life. We’ll develop the perfect plan to minimize interest while still making payments feel as easy as possible. Before you know it, you’ll have sent off that last check and the vehicle will be all yours. If you want to get some of the work done before coming in, you can fill out a Finance Application online!

I had a great experience at Thornton Automotive Dover. Initially I was concerned as the person I was communicating with did not notify the sales team of my visit, so they were unprepared and did not know the location of the vehicle. Ryan and the rest of the team ultimately handled the situation professionally to get the truck prepared and in my possesion in a timely manner. I have confidence that if you are also looking for a vehicle, you will have a great experience too.

I had been SUV shopping for 6 months and just could not find anything that really caught my eye. I went to Thornton in Dover to actually look at an SUV that I saw on their website and ended up buying a different one they had on their lot. I looooove my Ford Edge Titanium! Courtney was an amazing salesperson and we will definitely be repeat customers! The entire Dover crew was very welcoming!

My parents bought from Thornton, my husband bought his truck there a few months ago and the truck I traded in was bought there a few years ago. I have bought from other dealers in the past and my experience with Thornton Automotive has been so much better than the others. The sales team I worked with are honest, down to earth human beings that worked with my schedule and helped me find the car that I felt was right for me. I had an idea of what vehicle I was looking for, but wanted options to make sure I was making the right choice. I tested drove 4 different makes/models of SUVS. They were able to transfer one from their Red Lion lot to their Dover lot for me to test drive, and allowed me to test drive one from their Dover lot to the Manchester lot in order to test drive one I liked at that lot. I work 2nd shift and had to leave and come back another day twice. They were able to converse through text and phone calls about my options and then had the paperwork ready for me to get done and get to work on time. I did feel a bit rushed making a decision and didn't notice a few things until after I had the vehicle home a few days. The one rim is scratched and appears to have been painted and I am missing all of the floor mats. My fault for not taking the time to thoroughly check over the car before signing and driving. I can buy matching floor mats when I buy seat covers. I would highly recommend any of the Thornton Automotive lots, but Scott at the Dover lot was great to work with! I'm hoping to keep this vehicle for many years to come, but if I should ever decide to trade in I will definitely go back there!

We bought a 2013 suburban from kevin s back in Feb. On tuesday the transmission slipped. We towed it that day to Thorton and dropped it off to the service dept. They handled everything after that!!! Today is thursday and we just got the call that the car will be ready tomorrow. I would highly recommend this dealership and their service dept for our future purchases.

Great experience from start to finish. Kevin was a great help especially during the Covid process. It was a non-contact by Pooley sanitize truck when purchased. Service department is just as good. I will be back when it’s time to purchase my wife’s Jeep.

Wonderful experience. Everyone was polite, fair, forthcoming and friendly. Note: This dealership treats women with tremendous respect. None of that “ do you want to bring your husband back when you get serious “ nonsense. Small town dealership with big city inventory and service. You’ve gotten a new loyal client with us. Thank you, Thornton!

Our vehicle recently suffered damage to the side door after it was hit by another car. We called the auto collision dept and was able to take our car in the next day for an estimate. We brought the car back in a few days later for the repairs. Three days later, our vehicle was done. They did a fantastic job! There are no telltale signs that the door was ever damaged. We were very satisfied with customer service and the repair job. We highly recommend Thornton Auto Collision in Dover.

Folks my husband and I cannot not tell you how many times Thornton has helped us out over the years. You name it, body damage and a new paint job, flat tires, blower motors, over the past few years our family has become very grateful for this service department and guess what the people are honest. I have my car there now, I asked to have new back brakes put on, have my ignition switch checked and also a front right tire issue fixed, we had no idea what it was. I just received a call from Jim and he said, Vicki your back brakes will be ok until November when your inspection is due, we are still checking your ignition switch but you do need a new hose on your right front passenger side...people I don't know about you, but we have been other places for one small issue and they would find 5 other issues to try and get more money out of you. THORNTON is just not like that. We are extremely grateful to have them service our vehicles...honesty is simply priceless. If you want to be treated with courtesy and respect...make this your next service stop you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Don and Vicki Markle, Dover, PA.

We worked with Cary who was very accomodating and attentive to our concerns. He stayed way past his time to go home which I kept appologizing to him. He did not try to rush us out so he could leave. It was a pleasure to work with him. All the people we met were very friendly and helpful. I would definately let my friends know Thornton is a great place to buy a car.
