To begin with, used cars are more affordable—plain and simple. That’s because you avoid the initial depreciation that happens with most new cars. Believe it or not, some cars lose up to 40 percent of their value in the first three years, and it’s largely because of lower demand. You also save when it comes to taxes and insurance as well, simply because of the lower sticker price.
You tend to get better selection with used cars for two reasons. First, many model years come with specific styling, features, and trims. If you want a certain make or model, or you simply love the look of a certain car, you may have to buy used to get it.
Second, used cars offer a wider selection because you’re not limited to one model year. You can shop around for multiple cars with less selection, making it more likely that you’ll find your dream car.
Peace of Mind
In addition to costs and selection, there are also tons of websites and online services that provide vehicle history reports and credit checks to make the car-buying process easy. Looking for a car that hasn’t been in any major accidents? Sometimes it’s as simple as checking a box.
If you want the most affordable vehicle on the market with added selection, consider buying used. Plus, with new technologies providing peace of mind as you buy, it’s easier than ever to get behind the wheel of a pre-owned vehicle.
