Reasons To Buy A Used Vehicle

Purchasing a used vehicle offers numerous advantages including the ability to save money and drive a more premium vehicle for less money. Below are a few reasons to consider purchasing a used car.

Modern Vehicles Are Built To Last

Today’s vehicles are built to last longer; IHS Automotive reports the average of a vehicle on U.S roads at 11.5 years and this number is expected to rise. This means that you don’t need to purchase a brand new vehicle if you want reliability. Buyers also have access to tools like vehicle history reports which allows you to check a vehicle’s ownership and accident history.

Certified Pre-Owned Programs

Purchasing a vehicle from a private seller can be a risky whereas purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle may give you more piece of mind. Vehicles have to pass a rigorous multi-point inspection in order to be accepted. Many vehicles that enter CPO programs are leases which have been well maintained and in “like-new” condition.

Get “More Car” For Your Money

Buying a used vehicle will allow you to get a vehicle with a higher trim level and features than a brand new car at a lower price. You may even able to purchase a vehicle from a luxury brand at a reasonable cost.

Save Money

One of the biggest advantages of purchasing a used vehicle is that you’ll save a significant amount of money since a new vehicle depreciates in value the minute you drive it off the lot. Pre-owned cars generally also come with lower sales taxes, insurance costs and registration fees.
