Avis Opens Car Sales Locations, Offering Previously-Owned Vehicles at Competitive Prices

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Avis today announced the opening of several car sales locations across Florida, Texas, and Massachusetts through its Avis Car Sales program. The large selection of newer, low-mileage vehicles which are competitively priced, are perfect for savvy car buyers. All vehicles are Avis Certified — meaning they have passed a rigorous multi-point, bumper-to-bumper inspection process completed by certified mechanics, including ASE-Certified and ASE Master Technicians.

“Trust is one of the most important factors for consumers buying a pre-owned vehicle,” said Gregg Nierenberg, senior vice president of fleet services, Avis Budget Group. “Our vehicles not only pass through rigorous mechanical and safety tests, but they are backed by the trusted reputation of the Avis brand, so consumers can buy with confidence.”

Sales of used cars are expected to continue rising through 2020, including more than 39 million cars sold by the end of 2018, according to Edmunds.com and other auto information groups. As demand increases, Avis now offers a direct-to-consumer model for individuals and families looking to purchase their former rental cars. The majority of Avis’ vehicles are rotated out of the rental fleet while they are still under the original manufacturer’s warranty. In addition, every vehicle is backed by a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty and are available for purchase via AvisCarSales.com and the Avis Car Sales retail locations. Avis also offers the Ultimate Test Drive, available in more than 35 states, where a prospective buyer can drive any vehicle of interest for free for two hours or up to three days at an attractive rental rate.

Avis Car Sales is committed to providing customers with product and service above and beyond what is expected:

Lifetime Service Records: Avis is the original owner of each vehicle and has complete maintenance records for its vehicles and will provide them to potential buyers.
Certified Pre-owned: All Avis Car Sales vehicles receive factory scheduled maintenance, including regular washes, which often times is more frequent than average car owner care. Avis also includes a 12 month/12,0000 mile standard warranty for additional peace of mind.
No Open Recalls: Avis Car Sales does not offer any vehicle with an open recall or safety campaign.
Accident-Free History: Since vehicles have had no prior owner, we’ve chosen not to sell any vehicle that has been in an accident. In fact, we’ll provide potential buyers with a vehicle history report, powered by AutoCheck®, which is backed by Experian.
