Buying a Used

Are you sick of driving an old “junker’’ around a need a new vehicle? If so, you may be deciding between purchasing a used and new vehicle. While you may know about some of the obvious benefits of buying a used car (less money!), you may be unaware of these hidden benefits.

Used Cars Are Good For the Environment

Materials used to build new cars have a very strong (and negative) impact on the environment, so if everyone bought new, it would not be very eco-friendly. What’s more, buying used vehicles helps keep ones that still have a lot of great life out of the scrap yard and landfills, further helping things.

Used Cars Reduce Other Costs, Too

In addition to saving money on the overall value of your purchase, you also get to pay less in insurance than you would buying a brand new car! What’s more, if you need to buy parts for the car in the future, parts from older vehicles are almost always far less expensive than they are for newer ones.

Used Cars Have a Longer Shelf Life These Days

Let’s be honest; it used to be risky to buy used cars because once they had a certain amount of miles on them, it could be any day before they would just stop functioning. But that’s not the case anymore. Now, cars last longer than they have at any point in history. 100,000 miles used to be a great mark for cars to get to. That’s nothing now, as most get near and often times above 200,000 miles if you take care of them properly. So it’s more than just a “short term” purchase when you buy a used car.
