Welcome to John L. Smith Used Cars

Welcome to John L. Smith Used Cars

There's a Reason That We're the Top Pre-Owned Car Dealer in Chester County

At John L. Smith Used Cars, we do things differently than other used car dealerships. First, we only sell pre-owned vehicles that are JSL Certified -- meaning they come with the assurance provided by a comprehensive 12-month/12,000-mile warranty, lifetime complimentary PA inspections, rental vehicle coverage, and free oil changes. We hand-select the vehicles that appear in our inventory, in order to provide you with the area's best selection of top-quality used cars, SUVs and pickups.

We Have Your Financing Solutions

Thanks to our relationships with a variety of lenders, we're able to arrange financing for customers with all kinds of credit -- from excellent to non-existent. You see, they know the high quality of vehicles we sell, and they know how we do business. That faith in us extends to you, allowing you to obtain financing approval in as little as 15 minutes!

Full-Service Auto Center

The technicians who work in our 8-bay garage are ASE certified, so you can count on them to handle any problems that arise with your vehicle -- from oil changes to engine rebuilds. We offer same day service for most repairs, and have a complimentary shuttle service should you need to get back to business. Most importantly, our expert technicians are versatile enough to service all makes and models -- not just one manufacturer's products.

The Added Details Make All the Difference

What really helps us stand out from the competition are the extras that we provide to our customers. Should you need a rental car, Affordable Rental of West Chester is conveniently located inside our dealership. We direct-bill the insurance company so that you don't have to worry about getting reimbursed for out-of-pocket costs, and we offer both short- and long-term rentals.

Need to insure your new-to-you vehicle? Barone Insurance Agency is ready to offer you coverage, and at a reasonable rate. We even offer coverage for your business, home, boat, and more! We're always happy to help you better understand your coverage options!

Naturally, you want to keep your pride and joy looking as good as it did the day you bought it. Our auto detailing service is here to serve, taking care of all the little things you might miss when you wash your car on your own. Let us do the hard work so that you can enjoy more time driving.

We're located quite close to the heart of historic West Chester, so we're an easy drive for our friends and neighbors throughout the area. We look forward to showing you what makes us the top-rated used car dealer in West Chester!
