Upgrade Without the Upgraded Cost
Perhaps you always had your eye on that one model that was always just a little too far out of financial reach. This is where a gently used pre-owned car can help make that dream a reality! Enjoy the same performance standards, premium comfort, and technology, but at a price that best fits your monthly budget.
Avoid the “Break-in” Period
It’s a well-known fact among car manufacturers and service techs that a new vehicle takes a year or two before it reaches its full-performance level. During the first 10,000-25,000 miles, things like the engine and transmission are still settling in while most technical bugs and glitches get worked out under warranty.
This is a big advantage to a used car buyer as you don’t have to go through this process, while still enjoying a gently used car that’s practically brand new!
Less Depreciation Means Greater Value
The moment you drive off the dealership lot in a brand-new vehicle, its value immediately takes a big depreciation hit. In some cases, it can be as high as 30%! A used vehicle on the other hand already has taken this hit, meaning you can often find a high-quality used car at a greater value.
Consider a used car that’s only one or two years old. Is it really going to be that much different from the latest model? You also might be able to take advantage of its existing warranty coverage, which only increases your savings.
Lower Registration and Insurance Fees
Insurance companies often view used cars as less of a financial risk than brand-new models, which can result in snagging a lower monthly premium. You might also catch a break on taxes and registration fees, too, depending on the state and municipality you reside in.
