Locally owned and operated since 1995, Own A Car Fresno is committed to keeping Central Valley drivers on the road in affordable, high-quality used cars. But that’s only one way we give back to nearby communities. Our ownership team is made up of Fresno State alumni who are dedicated to making their city a better place to both drive and live. We consider it a point of pride to hire from the Fresno area, and our long list of charity support includes giving to Toys for Tots and Valley Children’s Hospital.
And the best part is that Own A Car Fresno combines all that community support with the kind of used-car benefits you simply can’t get from big national chains like CarMax. For example, we’re just as focused on helping you sell or trade in your current car as we are on helping you find your next one. That’s crucial in today’s marketplace, because most people prefer to do both at the same time.
Whether you search “sell my car in Fresno” or “trade-in my car in Fresno,” you’ll find plenty of dealerships who claim they’ll give you top dollar for your used vehicle. Finding one willing to match Own A Car Fresno, however, is going to be a lot more difficult.
We can even come out ahead when you’re comparing us to a large nationally based used-car dealership like CarMax. For instance, if you ask someone at that store “What’s my car worth in Fresno?” they’ll tell you to bring your vehicle in for an evaluation. At Own A Car Fresno, you can get your used car appraised in just a few minutes with our online vehicle valuation tool.
Another question we often get is, “Can you appraise my car in Fresno if it’s not running?” The answer – at least at Own A Car – is a resounding “Yes.” In fact, we will go as far as arranging to have your previous vehicle towed to our lot if that’s what it takes to earn your business. CarMax? Not so much. They don’t accept used cars unless they’re drivable.
In addition, we routinely beat CarMax offers on pretty much all used cars, regardless if they’re running or not.
Of course, our primary goal here at Own A Car Fresno is to make it easier for you to own a better used car. And we’re not the only ones who think we deliver on that promise: Own A Car Fresno is proud to have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Our starting point is impressive affordability that comes from basing our prices on local market conditions. This way, we can showcase a haggle-free buying experience and used cars that can come in under true market value. The CarMax pricing strategy relies on national numbers that include sales in huge cities like Los Angeles, where almost everything costs more. Own A Car Fresno also has some sizeable advantages when it comes to financing. After all, we’re one of the largest car dealerships in the Central Valley, and that gives us access to a network of more than 50 national and local lenders. As a result, our honest and experienced finance professionals are able to arrange smart terms for customers with all kinds of credit. Getting pre-approved is a breeze with our 100% secure online credit application.
Want to add upgrades or accessories before you take delivery? Own A Car Fresno can bundle the cost of upsized wheels, premium sound systems, vinyl wraps, lift kits, tinted windows, and more right into your finance contract for all-in-one pricing. You’ll really appreciate that benefit when you turn to Own A Car Fresno for customizing used trucks or SUVs before you take them home. Remember, we have a team of skilled tuners just waiting to help personalize your ride with premium aftermarket parts from top suppliers like Bilstein, FOX, Method, Pro Comp, Rough Country, Smittybilt, Toyo, and others.
To seal the deal, we specialize in delivering lower APRs than CarMax does.
Maximum affordability is available when during Own A Car Fresno’s $500 down payment promotions, which occur multiple times each year.
As for the hundreds of used cars we typically have in stock, these are high-quality machines that come from local sources. In contrast, the CarMax inventory comes from across the country, even from northern climates where road salt and snow can have a major impact on a vehicle’s condition. Then, to ensure they’re up to our clients’ high standards, each of our used cars goes through an extensive safety check and many carry a free limited lifetime powertrain warranty. It covers key hardware like the engine – including superchargers or turbochargers – along with the transmission and, in vehicles that have them, transfer cases (exclusions do apply, so see us for details). Towing assistance of up to $75 is part of the package as well.

Blackstone Ave., or check out our virtual showroom online, and you’ll discover what so many other drivers already know: Own A Car Fresno is the local used-car dealership with world-class customer service and a wonderful selection of used cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and more!
