Here at O’Neil’s Chevrolet Buick dealership in Avon, CT., we proudly cater to car shoppers of all ages, incomes, and interests. From elderly shoppers looking for the simplest, safest option, to first time car buyers looking for the flashiest ride in the lot, our ever-changing inventory boasts a wide range of options for local Connecticut shoppers. Our wonderful state is home to dozens of colleges and universities, and with the popular commuter campus of Central Connecticut State University just under thirty minutes away in New Britain, CT., we would like to focus now on our affordable options for this demographic.
CCSU is home to over 12,000 students, over half of which commute, and 90% are in-state students. This means that thousands of students are relying on their vehicles to safely and efficiently transport themselves to-and-from campus in New Britain, CT., each and every day. So, when your current ride reaches its last leg, you need a car with better gas mileage for the daily commute, or you simply feel its time for an upgrade, we suggest you CCSU commuters pay a visit to Sullivan O’Neil’s for a new Buick.
There are many reasons why Buick’s make great cars for college students. First, the range of models is impressive. Our dealership alone currently has five options to choose from, all with their own set of valuable features. We understand that each student is different, and these preferences and needs are reflected in your vehicle choice. Whether you’re a college athlete who needs a sporty SUV that can accommodate your gear on the way to off-campus games, or you’re a full time student who prioritizes finding a compact sedan with great gas mileage to help cut down on monthly expenses, we have a Buick to match your needs.
Second, the reliability factor. In the 2017 U.S. News ranking of “Best Large Cars,” the Buick LaCrosse ranked number one. With its fuel-efficient engine that gets 20-21 MPG city, 29-31 highway, a perfect 10/10 safety rating score, and a 310-horsepower V6 engine, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise. When it comes to commuting, reliability and efficiency are key. Just a matter of minutes can make a world of difference when it comes to snagging the last open commuter parking spot or being minutes late to your final exam. With our range of reliable Buicks here at Sullivan O’Neil’s, we can increase your chances of safely, swiftly getting where you need to be on campus exactly when you need to be there.
Finally, the affordability. The combination of comfort, affordability, and performance are what earned the LaCrosse its top spot in the aforementioned U.S. News poll, and these are traits that carry on over to a number of other models that we currently have in stock. College students have a number of expenses to keep in mind, from textbooks and tuition, to rent and recreation. Knowing we are able to offer these trustworthy Buicks at a range of affordable prices is something we’re proud of here at our local Connecticut Buick dealership. Take the 2012 Buick Regal Turbo for example. Our current offer on this fuel-efficient ride is just $12,599, and with our range of flexible financing options there’s no reason this trusty vehicle can’t be yours today! Maybe Buick’s aren’t your style? CCSU students can also visit our Torrington sister store, Sullivan’s Northwest Hills, just 25 miles west of their New Britain, CT, campus to shop their wide range of GMC’s and Cadillac’s!
