Understanding Pre-Owned Classifications

When searching for a pre-owned vehicle online, you sometimes see a classification attached to the make, model and year. We understand that without the value of having a sales consultant at your side to answer your questions, it can be difficult to understand the differences between these classifications. To help you make informed buying decisions, we've compiled a list of definitions to explain these classifications.
