Why Buy Used?

 

While you can’t deny the allure of a brand-new car, there are many benefits to buying a used car. Here are seven of them.


Depreciation

Unless you own a true classic car, your car is continually losing value. Most of that value is lost right after a new car is purchased. In fact, a new car can lose up to 50 percent of its value within the first three years.

More Car for Your Money

Imagine taking a new-car budget and applying that to a used car. You will be able to get a fully-loaded used model, perhaps even up a class or two up from what you could afford new.

Certified Pre-Owned

One way to feel more confident about your used car purchase is to purchase a Certified Pre-Owned car. These models have gone through extensive inspection and reconditioning procedures. They also usually come with some kind of warranty coverage.

Variety

When you buy a new car, you are limited to one or two model years. In the used car market, your options are nearly endless. You can find practically any make, model, and year you could want.

Research

Because used cars have been around for a few years, you know they have been thoroughly tested. There will be plenty of online reviews for you to read through. This will help you find models to avoid and any potential problems with a particular year.

Reliability

Cars last longer than ever, so buying used is no longer as much of a gamble as it used to be. The industry has proven that cars are built to last well past 100,000 miles.

Vehicle History Reports

All cars come with history reports. These allow you to learn about vital information from a car’s past, including how many owners it has had, any accidents it has been in, and some service records.
