When shopping around for the perfect vehicle, you have to answer this question: Do I buy new or used? Although each option has its benefits and drawbacks, buying used or pre-owned usually is the better choice for most drivers. Here are a few reasons why you should buy a pre-owned or used vehicle.
Better Value: In the first two years alone, new vehicles can lose 40 percent of their initial value. New vehicles have a steep mark-up price, while used vehicles do not. Used or pre-owned vehicles have already gone through the depreciation process, so you will end up paying what the vehicle is actually worth and getting more for your money.
More Options: Buying used may put a vehicle that may otherwise be out of your price range in your budget, allowing you to get exactly what you want. You may also be interested in features that have been discontinued by an automaker, which you can gain access to by buying used.
Same or Similar Tech: Oftentimes, more recent models have the same features as the current models, or features that are remarkably similar. Therefore, you don’t necessarily need to buy the newest model to get state-of-the-art technology — such as modern connectivity and safety technology — that will elevate your overall driving experience.
