Avondale Select Review – Complete Review
Avondale – a popular Luxury Car dealership company in the Dallas metro area – now offers their own luxury car subscription service: Avondale Select.
Avondale’s first dealership opened in 1987 – since then the Avondale Group has expanded and operates over 8 luxury car dealerships around the Dallas metro area.
What does an Avondale Select subscription look like?
Avondale Select offers a three-tiered subscription model. Choose between the Prime, Plus, or Premium plans, and get access to a roster of plan-specific luxury cars. Your monthly fee will cover just about everything – from insurance and maintenance, to unlimited vehicle “flips” and a concierge service.
You can use Avondale Select’s dedicated mobile app to figure out which car best suits your needs – and then also go ahead and set up delivery of your new vehicle to your front door.
The one main caveat with subscription is the usage area – the area in which you can legally drive an Avondale Select car: a 300 mile radius around Plano, Texas.
How much does it cost?
You’ll have to pay luxury prices to have a slew of luxury cars at your fingertips. On top of the monthly price, each tier comes with it’s own one-time joining fee. Signing up for the Prime (Avondale’s cheapest option) will run you $1,095 per month (before tax) with a sign up fee of $1,000, while the Plus and Premium options will cost $1,495 and $1,995 per month, respectively, with sign up fees of $1,500 and $2,500.
The upside here is that once you’ve signed up, you won’t have to worry about extra costs like insurance or maintenance – and the unlimited flips is a great feature as well.
Where does it operate?
Avondale Select operates in the Dallas, TX area.
How do I sign up?
Avondale makes signing up easy. All you have to do is download the Avondale Select app and fill out all the required info. You’ll need your driver’s license and a valid form of payment. Once you’ve filled out the application on your mobile device, and Avondale has approved your application, they’ll reach out and help you reserve your first Avondale Select car.
Am I eligible for Avondale Select?
Avondale Select only requires their applicants be at least 26 years old and have a valid driver’s license and clean driving record. Aside from those requirements, as long as you have a valid form of payment, you’re eligible.
How long do I have to wait for my new car?
This depends. Once you’ve been approved, you’ll work with an Avondale Select concierge to schedule the delivery of your first car.
Can I try the service before I commit to it?
Avondale Select doesn’t currently offer any kind of trial period.
Can I swap vehicles?
Avondale Select allows for unlimited car swaps – just give them at least 24 hours notice.
How do I cancel Avondale Select?
Contact Avondale Select and notify them of your intention to cancel. They will cancel your service after your current payment period (31 days) has ended.
Avondale Select vs. Lease
Avondale Select’s strategy here is probably not to be competitive from a price standpoint. Rather, Avondale Select is all about luxury: offering the best in luxury cars with the full gamut of car subscription service benefits. Avondale covers all the extra costs that would come hand-in-hand with leasing, like insurance, maintenance, registration, and even throws in a concierge service to boot.
Which cars are available?
Avondale Select currently offers select luxury vehicles from Mercedes, Porsche, Volvo, Lexus, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Maserati. Check out Avondale Select’s website for a full rundown of offered models.
What is included in the Avondale Select monthly price?
The monthly price covers the cost of auto insurance, the rights to your vehicle, unlimited vehicle swaps, maintenance, roadside assistance, and a concierge service. In terms of a mileage allowance, Avondale allows its subscribers 1,667 miles per month or 20,000 miles per year. There’s a $0.50 charge per extra mile.
In terms of insurance, all three plans share the same coverage: a $1,000 deductible, a $1,000,000 liability coverage (combined single limit), $300,000 uninsured motorist (combined), and $2,000 in medical payments. You can also add on extra protection for an addition to your monthly fee.
What is not included in the Avondale Select monthly price?
The initial joining fee is a separate, one-time charge. You can also add additional coverage for your tires, windshield, and wheels for an addition to your monthly fee ($39, $59, and $79 for Prime, Plus, and Premium respectively).
Any additional mileage on the vehicle over the given mileage limit will incur a charge of $0.50 per mile.
Is Avondale Select right for you?
If you live in the Dallas area, and don’t mind the limited usage area nor the premium prices, Avondale Select offers a premium luxury car subscription service and is worth checking out. That said, if you’re looking for something more cost effective with the option to drive wherever you want, you might want to check out some other car subscription services.
