Reasons to Buy an Affordable Used Vehicle

Low-cost used cars and trucks can be a fantastic choice for many car shoppers hoping to stay within their given budget, acquire a set of wheels for a new driver, fulfill a temporary need, simply bypass car financing altogether, or any amount of personal reasons. While buying new is commonly a bucket list goal for many people, there are several attractions for shopping pre-owned. The most frequent among these rationales are that used cars and trucks depreciate less over time, are reliable and dependable vehicles, and typically cost less to insure than a newer model.

used cars avoid depreciation

Leverage Depreciation

One all-too unavoidable reality of car ownership is the little matter of depreciation. As suggested by Kelley Blue Book, the average car may lose up to 60% of its value over its first 5 years, regardless of make or model. Likewise, shopping used allows savvy car shoppers to use depreciation in their own favor. Bringing home a model that’s only a few years old means getting a dependable model for a fraction of the original MSRP. On the whole, shopping for an affordable pre-owned car can mean saving money on the initial purchase and maintaining better value over time.

used cars are safe, reliable & well-maintained

Reliable & Safe

Our team stands behind the quality of our selection of pre-owned vehicles. Our entire inventory of used cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans go through a thorough repair and inspection process before being able to be listed for resale. This includes safety above all. Safety is primarily based on the model, make, and year you are buying, and typically not a matter of being pre-owned or not. A Consumer Reports study suggests that features and reliability do not see a significant reduction until after a vehicle’s 6th year. Certainly, with all vehicles, overall mileage is often a better indication of reliability than age.

used cars have lower insurance premiums

Low Insurance Cost

When it comes to budget-conscious car buyers, reducing their expenses often includes the amount of car insurance. As suggested by Nerd Wallet, a major factor of vehicle insurance premiums is actually the car itself. How much is it worth? How much do parts cost? What is its safety rating? This aspect of car insurance is a guarantee against the value of repairing or replacing damage to your car or truck. Because of this, buying a safe, affordable, and dependable used car or truck can significantly reduce your monthly premiums. Final rates, however, are often significantly influenced by your driving profile, including age, driving history, and credit score.
