Best Used Vehicles for Pets

Best used Vehicle For Pets | Chip Wynn Motors | Paducah, KY

Dogs and cats are part of our family, so when buying a used car, it’s important to consider their needs as well as our own. That means not only looking for family-friendly, but also pet-friendly, features that keep your four-legged friend comfortable and safe, whether on a short drive to the dog park or a long road trip to visit family. (We all — pets included — need a road trip this winter or spring more than ever to get out of the house, after all!)

Something spacious with great safety features should do the trick. More specifically, look for a used vehicle that has plenty of room in the backseat, where your animal should ride for safety. Flat-fold seats mean more room for larger dogs. You should also consider a vehicle with a low floor for easier entry and larger door or back hatch opening, especially if you need to load in a travel crate for your cat.

Some of the best used vehicles for pets are minivans, like the Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, or crossovers, like the Subaru Forester (Subaru is known for being the automaker that most seriously considers pet safety) or Subaru Crosstrek.

Large SUVs like the Kia Telluride or Chevy Suburban are even better for big breeds. If you are looking for something smaller, we recommend the Kia Optima with anti-soil cloth upholstery or the Honda Fit with the big back hatch.

And where can you find some of the best used vehicles for pets? Where else but Chip Wynn Motors in Paducah, Kentucky. No matter your needs or your budget, we’re confident you’ll find a vehicle you’ll love a lot on our lot.

How to Tell if You’re Due for a New Ride in 2021

New Car Shopping | Paducah, KY | Chip Wynn Motors

If your old vehicle has seen better days, you don’t have to break your budget to treat yourself to a new pre-owned model. But if you’re a cost-conscious driver, it can be tough to know when to part with your old car. Here’s how to tell if you’re due for a new ride in the New Year.

Smells, leaks, and malfunctions

Strange scents, mysterious leaks, and nagging noises are all solid indications that your car is wearing out. Furthermore, if vehicle’s interior is home to threadbare seats, missing buttons, and faulty electronics, do yourself a favor and make it your 2021 New Year’s resolution to upgrade to a new used vehicle.

Outdated technology

Wish you could connect your smartphone to your car? Want the convenience of built-in navigation? Crave the comfort of heated seats? If you currently drive an older vehicle, you may be missing out. To update your driving experience, consider choosing a newer pre-owned vehicle.

Costly repairs

Your old vehicle depreciates as time wears on. When an expensive or critical component needs to be replaced, the repair may cost more than the vehicle’s value. So if your old car is suffering from transmission troubles or powertrain problems, it’s time to consider getting a quality new-to-you vehicle at Chip Wynn Motors.
