While we love all of the new cars on the market, but we also realize that a new car isn't for everyone. No matter if you want a used car for the lower depreciation costs, lower insurance rate, smaller registration fees, or for the ability to get more car for your money, we can help you find the used car you need. Here are just a few of the reasons that some clients prefer used cars over buying new:
Price - You can get better prices on used vehicles than you can get from new vehicles. That doesn't mean, by the way, that you're just "getting what you pay for" in a negative sense. New vehicles are just inherently more expensive than used vehicles because used vehicles have already depreciated from their original value. Many used cars can be really great deals for that exact reason, especially if they don't have many miles or previous problems with them.
Value Retention - Used cars lose less of their value when you drive them off the lot than new cars do. As people famously tell you, a new car will lose half of its value when you roll it off the lot, but a used car will keep most of the same value from the second you purchase it to the minute it first pulls into your driveway. When you buy a new vehicle, you're paying a premium price simply because it's a "new" product.
Warranties - Many certified pre-owned vehicles come with an established owner maintenance program which includes a warranty for your powertrain and a warranty that covers some repair costs to give you peace of mind just like when you purchase a new car. These warranties vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but they will help ease your mind about purchasing a pre-owned car.
Technology - If you buy a used vehicle, you are typically buying a vehicle that comes with some of the same innovative technology and many of the same features as new vehicles but for a much lower price. If you're looking for the absolute latest technology and features, you may want to check out our new car inventory. However, if that doesn't bother you, then maybe you should start looking at our used cars.
As you can tell, there are many reasons for you to check out a used car.
