Why Buy Used Cars? | Princeton, WV
You’ve probably heard all kinds of cautionary tales about used cars in your lifetime, but these usually turn out to be more fiction than fact. Buying a used car doesn’t mean buying a lemon, and if you do it right, there are tons of benefits to buying used.
For one thing, if you buy a used car that’s less than 10 years old, chances are it’ll last you quite a while longer. Cars these days are built to last and come with all kind of safety features. Many vehicles purchased 10 years ago are still on the road today—part of what inspires customer loyalty in the Mitsubishi Outlander, for instance, is its long-term reliability.
Then, there’s the fact that used cars are just a better deal, money-wise. If you get something that’s in relatively good shape and won’t have you at the mechanic every other month, you’re going to save money. Used cars have a lower sale price and therefore lower monthly payments, and they cost less to insure. Plus, you get to skip their biggest depreciation period—the first 1-3 years—so if you decide to sell down the line, you get a bigger return on your investment.
You also have a lot more options to choose from when you buy used. Since used cars cost less, you can get a higher-quality used car for the same price you might pay for a more basic new car. And that’s not even counting Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, which are OEM-certified and inspected to guarantee like-new quality.
If you buy from a trustworthy source, there’s no reason not to get a used vehicle. They’re more affordable and a smart long-term investment, and they’re still great cars! Give us a call today at Pantili Mitsubishi to find out about our many used car options.
