Hassett Automotive

Let’s face it…

In this economy, everyone’s looking to save a few bucks wherever possible. The trick is to do it without compromising on quality. After all, a bargain isn’t a bargain if it’s a bust!

One of the first places most people consider cutting expenses is their automotive purchase, leading them to search out pre-owned deals. There are tens of thousands of possibilities, and finding the right one at the right price is no small accomplishment. That’s why having an experienced, trustworthy source for a pre-owned vehicle is essential to making sure what seems like “the real deal” truly is!

“At Hassett, we’ve defined the art of owning a pre-owned vehicle,” says Sal Rivela, Manager of Hassett’s pre-owned division. “After doing it for over a quarter-century, Hassett has earned its designation as ‘Long Island’s #1 Certified Pre-Owned Dealer’. Like most dealers, we know what people want when they come in; unlike the majority of our competitors, however, we actually give it to them.”

Backing up that claim is a large array of credentials, the first being Hassett’s long history of service excellence and customer satisfaction with both new and pre-owned cars, SUVs, 4x4s, and small trucks, going back to the 1950s. As Long Island’s #1 volume Ford Lincoln dealer (based on 2010 calendar year retail sales for LI from the Ford sales report), and the winner of the company’s prestigious President’s Award for the past eight straight years, consumers have buying confidence they can only get from a proven leader.

Furthering that confidence is the fact that every Hassett certified pre-owned comes with a six-year, 100,000-mile warranty…that’s right, six-year/100K miles. There are some new cars that offer less. Why can Hassett offer such a remarkable warranty? Simple…the 169-point service checklist every pre-owned at their dealership undergoes before it’s ready for sale. “We make 100% sure that every pre-owned vehicle we sell is in prime condition, virtually like new,” says Sal. “I’ve literally had customers do a ‘double-take’ when I tell them they’re looking at a pre-owned car. We stand behind every pre-owned before it’s sold, and after; on those rare occasions there’s a problem, we rectify it quickly. And Hassett has affordable extended warranty programs available, too.”

Since everyone wants a broad selection to choose from, Hassett has one of Long Island’s largest, featuring virtually every make and model in recent years. And because want a great deal, Hassett has developed a reputation for aggressively low-pricing their vehicles, so that when you get their deal, you know it’s real!

Last, but in no way least, Hassett is one of the very few dealerships that offer financing as low as 1.9% on all their quality pre-owneds. They’re also one of the rare dealers that don’t force consumers to finance through them to receive the “sale” or Internet price on their vehicles.

If all this isn’t enough, when’s the last time you heard of a dealership that doesn’t charge any prep or delivery fees?

In an era of vanishing values — and dubious deals — it’s reassuring to know there’s still one auto dealer offering top-quality pre-owneds at the lowest possible prices. Who says you can’t have savings without sacrificing? Not the “Good Guys” at Hassett!
