It’s true, Charlottesville, VA has been called America’s happiest city
by the US National Bureau of Economic Research
If you live in Charlottesville, you already know that. This is the land of Mr. Jefferson’s University of Virginia, James Monroe, horse country, the historic Downtown Mall,
as well as music, beer and wine trails. And we’re just getting started!
No matter what you choose to do in Cville, you need solid transportation.
Charlottesville VA New and Used Car Buying Commitment
Charlottesville is a progressive city in a mountainous region. That’s why reliable transportation is a must. Whether you’re driving to work, dropping the kids off at school, or planning your next big road trip, you want a vehicle that fits your life.
At Joe Bowman Auto Plaza, we sell brand new Chevrolets and Cadillacs, as well as quality used cars, SUV’s, and trucks.
With all of our new vehicles,
you’ll get Cadillac and Chevy’s new car warranty and two vehicle maintenance appointments for the first two years of ownership, or 24,000 miles.
For our pre-owned vehicles, we take just as much pride in selling only used vehicles that meet our high standards. Every pre-owned car, truck, or SUV we sell MUST pass the 75-point used car inspection checklist.
If it doesn’t pass this rigorous inspection, we won’t sell it.
With this inspection, our mechanics thoroughly go over the car. If there are any problems, they are immediately corrected. Every feature on the vehicle must also work beautifully.
Then we back up our commitment to selling only quality vehicles with a 30 or 90-day warranty, depending on vehicle mileage.
And, if your car, truck, or SUV has a mechanical problem we were not aware of at the time you purchased the vehicle, we will work diligently to correct it.
Auto Loan Financing Options for Charlottesville VA Residents
When you’re ready to buy
, you don’t want a lot of hassle. And with Joe Bowman Auto Plaza, there won’t be any!
We have a considerable financing network of local lenders, as well as large banking institutions. This allows us to find financing that fits almost any budget, even if you’ve had credit difficulties in the past.
That network comes in quite handy, especially for used car loans, and for those with a poor credit history. For customers ready to rebuild their credit rating, we look for lenders that will offer a fair interest rate so that you can build equity.
Not sure what your credit rating is? You can check
it on our site. You can also get pre-qualified here

Trade-In Options with MAXX Advantage Program
When it’s time to say goodbye to your old vehicle, you can list it for sale in the Daily Progress
, the C-ville Weekly
, or any other auto trader publication.
The problem is you just don’t know when it will sell. With Joe Bowman Auto Plaza’s MAXX Advantage program, you can either sell your vehicle to us outright or trade it in.
Here’s how it works. Go to the Kelley Blue Book Cash Offer
page on our website. Find out how much your vehicle is worth. Then bring in your car.
We’ll verify the condition and the features. If it meets our pre-owned quality standards, we’ll buy it from you at a fair price.
If you’d rather trade-in your vehicle, we’ll always give you a fair offer. Either way, Joe Bowman Auto Plaza will handle all the paperwork.
