New Vehicle

After driving around in my Chevy Impala for the last five years, I decided it was time to upgrade into something a little bigger. I had always wanted to get a pickup truck and have been eyeing up the Silverado and the GMC Sierra. I spent countless numbers of hours researching before I decided that I didn’t really need a full sized pickup truck. I wanted the extra size, and the power for towing, but I didn’t need an open bed or the long wheel base. That’s when I decided that a Chevy Tahoe might be closer to what I was looking for.

I found a number of different Tahoes for sale in my area, all of them having way too many miles, and looked way too beat up for my liking. I wasn’t interested in dropping $45,000 on an SUV that had lower miles, and I didn’t want one that had 250,000 miles on it either. Then I found one for auction on a government website that was reasonably priced, and had much less miles on it, but it had been in an accident. It was a forestry department vehicle and despite the accident it was in very good shape. It was sold before I could even look at it, but it had me wonder if there were other government owned vehicles that I could find that I might be able to get at a good price.

I found a place in Chicago that sold nothing but government owned vehicles, and they had a massive fleet of used police Tahoes on the lot. I had my pick from probably 20 different Tahoes, some even having the light bar and equipment still attached. I settled on a 2013 and had less than 90,000 miles on it. Upon looking at the service records and reaching out to a few sources, I was confident that I found my new truck. It was used as the K9 unit for a sheriffs department in Michigan. It was serviced on scheduled and it was in fantastic condition and ran like a champ. I’ve been very happy with my purchase so far.
