Have you ever considered buying a pre-owned vehicle? Purchasing a new car can be intimidating and people often assume pre-owned vehicles are defective. More often than not you can find an amazing deal with the same level of quality with a pre-owned car! If you are on the fence about purchasing a pre-owned vehicle here are some reasons why it could be the best fit for you:

  1. Can Save You Money- On average second hand vehicles run up to 50% less in price than brand new vehicles. If your dream car with the brand new price tag isn't in the budget for you at the moment, looking into pre-owned vehicles can be a great option! Get that high end feel for less! 
  2. Lower Customization Costs- Do you desire luxury level features in your car but are looking for a more budget friendly option? Pre-owned vehicles offer the chance to attain those features at a much lower cost to you! When the pre-owned vehicle comes to the used car lot, you can enjoy these added features without having to pay the excess fees to place the customizations in the vehicle. 
  3.  Less Depreciation - Brand new cars depreciate as soon as you drive them off the lot. They then continue to decrease in value up to about 20-50 percent within the first year of ownership. With a pre-owned vehicle, while still experiencing depreciation, it's historically significantly less compared to a brand new vehicle. By avoiding that initial value decrease from driving it off a lot and the difference in average depreciation values of a pre-owned car compared to a new car  as the years go on, pre-owned cars tend to be a better long run investment for consumers.
  4.  Lower Insurance Rates- Insurance is widely known to cost more with a brand new car compared to a used vehicle. Not only can you save money upfront but you can also save monthly on car insurance with a pre-owned car. If you are on a tight budget, having to spend less on insurance a month can be a great piece of mind. 
  5. Most Pre-Owned Vehicles Include a Warranty- Many used vehicles are still under their factory warranty. If a vehicle had been traded in before the warranties were up they tend to roll over to the next owner. For example, if someone leased a new car and it came with a 5 year warranty but  they turned it in after 3 years, there is still a 2 year warranty on the vehicle. So don't count out pre-owned vehicles if warranties are important to you, just inquire about pre-existing warranties when you are shopping!
