Claremore Driveway: 2013 Chevrolet Captiva

captiva

The Chevrolet Captiva is a small SUV sold only to fleets that kinda comes in under the radar. As the buyer for Melton Dodge, I’m looking all the time for any good national brand name car that I can buy for a bargain price.

I bought a Captiva and (BANG) it sold. I bought a second Captiva and it sold quickly.  Now we stock a range of Captivas and, of all things, we’re finding it to be our bestselling small crossover SUV, beating by far the 2013 model Escapes, Nissan Rogues, Hyundai Tuscons and Kia Sportages  all sitting on our lot side by side.

The little cars are good looking, but I think the main thing is all the stuff these LTZ cars have. We’re looking at cars that sticker over $30k that can be bought for just a hair over $20k. And they’ve got more stuff than others going for $10k more. Not just the leather, the sunroof and chrome alloy wheels, but the little stuff (seat heaters, automatic head lights, back up camera and radar).

This car was surprisingly fun to drive. It’s easy to see why they sell so well.

My name is Robby Melton.  I’m old enough to qualify for a “senior coke” at McDonald’s and don’t have to work anymore, but find myself here on the lot most days because that’s where the cars are. That advertising slogan, “We sell cars for fun,” is not far off-base for my brother and me.
