Why Buy Used?


Purchasing a car is a big decision and choosing the right car for you and your budget can be a long process. If you've been thinking about buying a used car, but are unsure whether it's a sound decision, let us help debunk some myths for you.

We've all seen the advancement of technology available within our cars, but there has also been advancement in areas that you don't see. Vehicles today are built with more precision, better materials, and more effectively than years before. So the longevity of cars today is much greater than those of years before, making the used car market much more appealing.

While with a new car you'll have that new car smell and odometer with less than 10 miles on it, that luxury comes with a price. You could find the same model that is used and a year or two older with the same features, at a much lower price. This is because a vehicle will typically lose close to 30% of its value after just one year of owning. Then the purchase of a used car then is a much more affordable option, especially for those who are on a budget.

But the biggest perk of searching the used car market, is the seemingly endless list of possible vehicles to choose from. There are vehicles from all makes and models across several model years for you to choose from.
