Why Buy a Used Ford?

 

Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs are built to last. When well-maintained, Ford models can endure decades of driving. That makes used Ford vehicles the perfect vehicles for first-time drivers or drivers on a budget. Here are a few reasons to consider buying a used Ford.


Lower Costs

The number one reason to buy used is to save money. Not only are used vehicles priced significantly lower, you will also save on depreciation cost. When people buy new vehicles, the vehicles lose a significant chunk of their value the second they are driven off the dealership lot due to depreciation. When you buy used, you do not take this major hit.

Lower prices mean a lower down payment as well as lower monthly payments. Because used models carry a lower value, they are cheaper to insure, too.

Larger Selection

Ford has manufactured a wide range of cars, trucks, and SUVs over the last several decades. By purchasing a used Ford instead of a new one, you are opening yourself up to a much wider range of vehicles. You can purchase Fords that have now been discontinued or get a previous generation of a current Ford that you like. You may even find it in a color or with specific features that you like that aren’t offered on brand-new models anymore.

Advanced Tech

Ford has been at the forefront of advancements in engine and safety technology. That means even older used models should have several advanced technologies that improve fuel economy and enhance safety. If you shop for used models from recent years, you should even be able to find a used Ford with new driver-assist technologies that actively work to prevent accidents.

Data

When you buy a used Ford, you can get access to a vehicle history report to understand how well that specific Ford has been taken care of. You can also drive it to a trusted mechanic for an in-depth analysis of the health of the model.

Just as importantly, because you are buying used, you have millions of data points at your fingertips. Log on to the internet and browse reviews of the specific model and model-year Ford you are considering to see how it was received when it was first released but also how that specific model has held up over the years. Consider both professional and customer reviews when researching your used Ford model.
