Benefits of Buying Used

The lure of a brand-new car equipped with the latest gadgets can certainly be attractive, but for many consumers, purchasing a used vehicle makes the most sense for a variety of reasons:

  • Price – A lower sticker price is one of the more obvious benefits of buying a used vehicle. Drivers will almost always pay significantly less—both in down payments and monthly installments—when opting for an automobile that is even one or two model years old than they would for a brand-new model.
  • Information – When you purchase an older model, you have a much better idea what you’re getting into than you do when you drive home in a brand-new vehicle. For instance, a vehicle that already has some time and some mileage under its belt has likely been reviewed by thousands of consumers with real-world experience behind the wheel of that model. Those consumer reviews are an invaluable resource that can tell you much more about a vehicle than a brochure or a specs sheet ever could.
  • Certification – Vehicles that are only a few model years old are typically still covered by original warranties and can also be purchased as certified pre-owned models. CPO vehicles have been thoroughly inspected, and are also usually covered by warranties that go beyond the original factory warranty.
  • Depreciation – When you purchase a brand-new vehicle, you can expect significant depreciation in value in your first few years of ownership. With a pre-owned vehicle, that early nosedive of depreciation has already occurred, which means you’ll get the vehicle for significantly less than its first owner paid.
