Used cars are great for car shoppers who want to save money. Though previous generations may have been wary of buying used, most modern vehicles are built with quality components, updated features, and extended value. That means you can buy an affordable car without constantly worrying about it breaking down. Used cars offer better value and added selection, among other great benefits.
Better Value. To begin with, used cars always have a lower sticker price than their new counterparts. Used cars also allow you to avoid initial depreciation and they help you save on taxes and other fees. Many new cars lose up to 40 percent of their value in depreciation due to a dip in demand. If you buy used, you avoid that initial deprecation and often get better bang for your buck. Plus, with a lower sticker price, you’ll pay less in taxes and registration fees.
Added Selection. Most car companies create a new lineup every year, which means some features and designs are quick to come and go. If you’re looking for a specific model, trim, color, or feature, you may need to buy used. Additionally, when you don’t restrict yourself to a single model year (like you do when buying used), you often get an overall wider selection.
Certified Pre-Owned. For those who want to buy used and get some added perks, Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) cars are a great option. These vehicles must meet age and mileage requirements, pass rigorous inspections, and they come with vehicle history reports. You also get added warranties and perks like roadside assistance. A CPO model may be right for you if savings and coverage are both priorities.
