Thinking about buying a car, but not sure to get a new one or a used one. Here are some reasons to buy a pre-owned vehicle.
Insurance – The insurance will generally costs less for an older car than for a brand-new one. A little bit of pre-purchase research will save you from insurance sticker shock, no matter which vehicle you choose.
Deprecation – Used cars depreciate less after purchase than new cars do. With a used car, there’s no depreciation hit the second you roll off the lot like there is with a new one. You may be able to sell your car for nearly the same amount you paid for it in the next few years.
Certified – Generally, a certified car has undergone an extensive safety and performance inspection, has been repaired or refurbished to bring it to nearly new car standards and carries an extended warranty.The car is sold to you under contract that it is problem-free and the warranty and guarantee provide security that you’re not blindly buying a lemon
Price – When it comes to comparing the price of a new verses used car, a used car is going to be less expensive. The relative advantage of the used-car price can also allow a buyer to step up to a nicer model.
Fees – Lower registration fees are a big pro of buying a used car; this advantage is simply built into the way state DMVs work, which is typically to charge less to register a used vehicle.
New cars are often targets for thieves and burglars, while an advantage of having a used car is that it looks more inconspicuous and less tempting to potential criminals on the street. It’s easy to get wrapped up obsessing over trying to keep your new vehicle spot-free and brand new, but a used car is a little more comfortable and won’t stress you out as much.
