Why It’s Smart to Buy a Used Car

November 2nd, 2018 443 Auto Sales

Buying a Used Car Why is buying a used car or truck a smart idea? Think of it this way: some people insist on buying brand new. They pay a lot of money for that privilege, don’t they? If a typical new vehicle costs $34,000, that’s a lot of money to spend on an item, right? But what if you could get that vehicle for $28,000? You probably could– buying a used version of it that’s a little older. If you don’t mind driving a vehicle someone else has driven, and you like saving money, to the tune of thousands of dollars, then buying used is a smart idea.

Modern Cars Last Longer

Vehicles made in the past few years are more reliable than the vehicles people grew up with back in the 1970s and 1980s, etc. Today it’s not uncommon for vehicles to look good and function well for over ten years. So if you buy a used car or truck that’s a couple years “old,” realize that it still has a lot of life left in it.

Well Maintained

When looking at used cars, find out if the one you’re interested in used to be a rental or a leased vehicle. Generally, they make great purchases because they’ve got low mileage, the maintenance is up-to-date, and they were well cared for– what’s not to like?

History Reports

Using the VIN number, a vehicle history report can give you details about a vehicle so you know exactly what you’re getting for the money. Vehicle history reports indicate the number of previous owners, previous registration status (lease, personal, taxi, etc.), any accident/flood/repair information, and mileage validation. They’re like a report card for vehicles, and buyers appreciate them.

Favorable Financing

Meanwhile, buying used vehicles is a smart idea because they can typically be bought utilizing favorable financing rates and terms. You can afford a used car or truck.
