Why Should You Buy a Used Vehicle?

One of the first things car buyers consider when they need to replace their vehicles is whether they should buy new or used. Purchasing a used vehicle may involve some degree of risk, but it can also be a smart financial move if you know how to choose the right car to buy. Below are some good reasons why you should get a used car instead of a new one:

Minimize Depreciation

Typically, a new vehicle loses roughly 10% of its value the very minute you drive out of the dealership lot. By the end of its first year, it can depreciate by as much as 30%. This means a new $20,000 car may only be worth about $14,000 after being on the road for one year.

You can avoid this big depreciation hit by purchasing a one-, two-, or three-year-old used vehicle instead. Such a car is significantly cheaper than a similar new model, but it's still in excellent condition and under warranty. Therefore, you'll get great value for your money.

Save on Auto Insurance

The value of a vehicle is a major factor in determining the cost of auto insurance. Since a used car is valued less than a new one, it can significantly lower your car insurance premium. You can save even more by dropping certain auto insurance coverage options. For instance, if you decide to get an older used car, you can skip collision and comprehensive coverage.  

Stretch Your Car-Buying Dollar

If you buy used, you can get a larger or better vehicle than if you buy new. With your budget, you may not be able to own that new luxury SUV you've always wanted. However, you can probably afford a similar vehicle that's two or three years old. Nowadays, automakers no longer redesign their vehicles on a yearly basis, so your neighbor may not know you didn't buy new if you drive home a two-year-old Chevy Camaro.

Minimal Risk

In the past, purchasing a used vehicle was like rolling the dice and you could easily end up with a lemon if you weren't careful. Things have changed greatly over the years, and nowadays you can minimize your risk and avoid hidden problems by getting a CARFAX vehicle history report. This report provides a lot of valuable information that gives you a clearer insight into the condition of a car, including its mileage, previous ownership, accident history, and major repairs, so you can easily tell if a particular used car is worth your investment.

Why Buy a Used Car From an Auto Dealership?

Many people prefer to shop for used vehicles at an auto dealership for the following reasons:

Solid Reputation

If you decide to purchase a used car from a private seller, you never know what you're going to get or whether they're going to scam you. An auto dealership is a safer option because you can check their credentials and customer reviews before you buy from them. Also, they're less likely to sell you a lemon or scam you because they need to maintain a good reputation to stay in business.

Guaranteed Quality

In an auto dealership, every used vehicle must pass stringent quality control tests before they're allowed to be sold. As such, you'll have peace of mind knowing that the used car you buy is fit for the road and safe for you and your family.

Wide Variety of Vehicles

When you go to a private seller, you usually have only one option. On the other hand, a dealership has dozens or hundreds of vehicles for you to choose from. If you aren't happy with a particular model, you can keep test driving different cars until you find the one that best suits your needs.

Financing Options

Unless you have enough cash to buy a used vehicle upfront, you're going to need auto financing. An auto dealership has connections with multiple lenders, so they're able to offer you an array of financing options. Whether you need a car loan with low monthly payments, a short-term loan, or even subprime financing, they can help you find the right financing solution.
