Deciding whether to purchase a new car or a used car can sometimes be a difficult decision to make. Sometimes a pre-owned vehicle can be an especially attractive choice when analyzing one’s budget. However, this is not a bad thing – there are many benefits to purchasing a used vehicle instead of a new one.  Here are some reasons that buying used can be a good choice:

Today’s Vehicles Last Longer.   Cars now are being built to last longer with an average life expectancy of a vehicle being about 11 years.  That means the used car, truck, or SUV you purchase should still have plenty of years left.

Potential Lower Insurance Cost. Since you aren’t purchasing a new vehicle, the reduced cost of the car helps immensely with determining your insurance costs.

Lower Registration Cost. Your registration cost will be lower with a used vehicle, depending on its age.

Certified Pre-Owned Options. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are often former lease or fleet vehicles, which have been well taken care of. These vehicles have mileage but are often in gently used condition.  CPO provides a variety of benefits to help the used vehicle buyer have peace-of-mind.

Depreciation. It is common knowledge that as soon as you drive a car off the lot, it begins to lose value since it is now a used vehicle. So, buying a used car to start with means someone else has already experienced that loss in value.  So, you can get a perfectly nice vehicle for less money than buying new.  And that vehicle is still going to have all of your favorite features!

Vehicle History Reports. It is so important when buying a used car to look for ones that have a clear CarFax report. Feel secure in the history of the vehicle you are purchasing.  Don’t worry — Red Noland PreOwned will provide you with a free CarFax report on our used vehicles.

Variety of Vehicles. When buying used, you have more options in one place. You have a variety of years, different features, and different types of exterior and interior colors to choose from.  You don’t have to choose one brand to look at.  Search through the used car inventory for something that fits your needs.  It may even be a brand you had never considered!

More Car for Your Money. Whether your vehicle purchase budget is small or large, it is nice to get a great deal. There is a good chance with the same budget that you can get a pre-owned vehicle with many more features than a new car.

You Save Money! The best reason of them all is that you can save a lot of money overall when buying a used car.
