Welcome to Benchmark Winston Salem, where we believe in providing safe and reliable transportation, where the customer comes first. We offer our customers finance options that ensure they are not trapped in the same vehicle year-after-year, and we strive to make finding a quality, reliable used car hassle-free and stress-free. We believe having a personal vehicle should be fun.
We are a friendly, transparent dealership offering fully-serviced and inspected used cars at affordable prices. It is our mission to improve the in-house auto financing experience by eliminating many of the financial hazards of traditional buy-here, pay-here dealerships.
At Benchmark, our customers are never locked into long-term contracts and will never be trapped by negative equity when financing with us in-house. If the vehicle isn't meeting your needs or you just feel like driving something new, you can trade into a different vehicle or simply walk away by paying a small $100 early termination fee after just thirteen months. You always maintain control when you finance with us!
Benchmark’s extensive selection of used cars, trucks, and SUVs includes a limited warranty. We will not sell or lease a vehicle 'AS-IS' to our customers. If we cannot stand behind the vehicle with a long-term warranty, we won't offer it on our lot. We could not do this if we did not uphold the highest standards for the used cars, trucks, and SUVs we provide. Refusing to offer vehicles 'As-Is' means something, and we think it says a lot about who we are as a dealer.
We are so confident in our in-house program and quality of vehicles we do not lock our customers into strict, long-term contracts. This means if we are not upholding our end of the deal by providing a reliable vehicle, our customers can terminate the contract and simply walk away. Our customers always maintain control when financing through our in-house auto lease program.
Whether you are interested in our no credit check, in-house finance options or want to take advantage of the outside lenders we have access to for traditional financing, we can meet your needs and make getting a new car enjoyable. We are a no-nonsense and no-pressure dealer where you will get direct answers to your questions in a laid-back environment and are treated with respect. Benchmark is built on integrity and doing business the right way.
Benchmark is Winston-Salem’s buy-here, pay-here alternative, and we keep it simple!
We do not ever check your credit. Our approvals for in-house lease financing are primarily based on your income. We can approve you if the payment is less than 20% of your net income. Our entire philosophy is based on the fact that getting a vehicle should be simple.
