At Modern, we know you want to purchase your Pre-Owned vehicle risk-free from a dealership that will stand behind what they sell. So we’ve covered all the bases by offering our SmartBuy Pre-Owned Vehicles, where “Confidence Comes Standard”.
This means our vehicles are inspected, reconditioned, and come with a CARFAX history report. Then we give you extra peace of mind with our Modern exclusive warranty on most vehicles. And should you change your mind about your purchase, we even offer a 3-Day/300 Mile Vehicle Exchange Program. We’ll give you a full tank of gas, a professional reconditioning, and provide a free rental for warranty-covered repairs. As an added bonus, we’ll perform a complimentary NC State Inspection on your car for life!
Modern ensures you can buy a Pre-Owned vehicle with confidence. Just another way you can Experience the MODERN Difference.

INTERNET VALUE PRICING
Our Internet Value Pricing mission at Modern Automotive is to present Value Pricing to all of our customers. To achieve this, we poll thousands of preowned websites hourly. This ensures that every one of our customers receives real-time Value Pricing on every SmartBuy Pre-owned Vehicle we sell. We do not artificially inflate our pre-owned prices in the hopes of winning a negotiating contest with our customers! After being in business since 1933, we have found that Internet Value Pricing is by far the best approach for our customers.
