“Much of our success with GM Certified can be attributed to the easy marketability of the program,” said Randall Hargis, General Sales Manager, Reliable Chevrolet. “The program perfectly fits the automotive needs of a variety of different consumer niches. Combining the marketability of the vehicles themselves with GMAC incentive programs and our own dealership’s recognition of being known as a GM Certified Used Vehicles leader allows us to provide an unlimited range of automotive solutions to our customers.
